Welcome to The Holiday Home Series. This year, I decided to loosen up and let the kids participate in the decorating more than I have in the past. The result has been true perfection. Not the kind of perfection we strive for when decorating but a truer perfection, the kind an adult cannot achieve.
Hannah is my 11 year old daughter.
She is also my design assistant, my behind the scenes wingman. She loves a good project and puts her heart in everything she does.
She's my sounding board when I am stuck on a project. She gives it to me straight and her design advice is always spot on.
She re-designed her bedroom tree this year. I gave her a $25 budget for the project.
She combined new decorations with special ornaments she has collected over time.
Each ornament represents a different phase in her life.
Her tree skirt is actually her first ballet tutu. Oh, how I miss the ballet phase...
This year she decided to layer a turquoise sequenced tree skirt from The Dollar Tree over the tutu.
(Good call, Hannah).
She chose a white tree with colored lights.
Looking at this tree reminds me of how she has grown and represents her entire childhood. To me, it couldn't be more perfect...just like her.
