As much as I would love to toss out the old and purchase brand new everything each year, I am a bit of a realist ( and possibly a tad cheap). Christmas decorations can be very affordable, hello Canadian Tire, but if you want to stay on trend it can get quite costly. One needs to figure out new and innovative ways of incorporating what we have with what we would like to have. Honestly there are a ton of great choices and varying style out there to chose from, as I am sure you recall from a Tree decorating post I wrote for Brazen Woman How does one incorporate new trends without breaking the bank?
One terrific idea is creating a focal point in your window, with a simple curtain rod and a few non breakable ornaments you can create a statement that screams 2014.
Taking just a few bright coloured bulbs and tying them with coloured ribbon provides a Christmas Curtain at a very inexpensive price, plus who else will have one. This can be done with an existing curtain rod or find that one window in your house that does not have a curtain, kitchens and bathrooms are great for this and voila.
