Except for Girl Scout cookies and Boy Scout popcorn or Christmas greenery, we do not answer the door for any solicitation period. So when Trevor, the neighbor Boy Scout, knocked on our door to sell some of his wares for the holidays, I was all in. Last year I bought the same little (real) Christmas trees. They come with the lights, pinecones and garland too.
I'm thinking this is enough in decorating the family room. I'll add a Christmas quilt for good measure. Keeping it easy. Keeping it simple.
