Design: Top Ten Christmas Decorations...

Hello I'm Brooke Jones from the Modern Sophisticate Blog & also an Interior Design contributor here at Made By Girl!

Top 10 Christmas Decorations (That May or May Not Be Christmas Decorations) Let's face it, Christmas decorating can get expensive.  From garlands, to ornaments, to tree skirts, to lights, the final tally can really add up. Even worse, the decorations you are investing in can only be seen for less than 1/6 of the year!  I would much rather invest in a pretty piece that can be construed as "festive" during the holidays yet "chic" and "glamorous" the rest of the year. 

Here's an idea......Instead of a tree skirt, why not buy a foxy fur throw to wrap around the base of your tree in December then drape it across the foot of your bed in January? 

Or how about gilded leaf trays to hold simple tea lights through New Years then use them to drop your keys and change in for the remainder of the year?

Do YOU decorate with anything that is not a 'Christmas decoration' per se? Share your ideas!
