I’ve been waiting and waiting for the year when Henry would be old enough to have a little tree of his own in his room, and lo and behold, he asked for one on his own this year! So my Christmas decoration idea: a mini tree in the kids’ room is finally happening. We were cruising the Christmas decorations in Michaels and he pointed to a little mini tree and said, “Mommy, that’s my tree for MY room.” And I turned into a puddle of holiday cheer. We kept cruising and he picked out a few other things on his own. Read on to find out which are his picks and which are mom’s! 😉
He chose the little tree right off the bat, and then he saw those insanely adorable rainbow felt ball garlands and totally went straight for them. I agreed wholeheartedly, so that was our first pick. Then he saw some glass ball ornaments and I was like, “Welllll, buddy, those are glass…” so we steered toward some unbreakable plastic ones instead and found these nutcracker ornaments! Which I thought were kind of hilarious, and he loved them too. They were kind of a no-brainer.
I fell in love with that mistletoe pillow and snagged it. Meanwhile, Henry fell in love with the Santa pillow, which I had to admit was cute. So they both came home with us.
My vintage addition were those gold and pearl picks that are stuck in the tree everywhere; they used to be on my Grandma’s Christmas tree and I’ve kept them on ours forever. I thought they filled out the little mini tree nicely, and Henry likes them because he thinks they make the tree look like a rocket ship. And by the way, can we just stop and appreciate pre-lit trees for a second? I’m a hardcore Christmas gal and I love my freshly cut trees, but these little ones with the lights already strung just make it so dang easy. So thank you world, for pre-lit trees.
Anyway! Do you have kiddos? Do you do a little tree in their room? I’m so excited to have this in Hank’s room for the month, and he is too. Happy Holidays! xoxo
