Decorating for Christmas with Little People {Pt. 1}: Quiet the House

  1. Cari says:

    Love these tips, especially the one about removing unnecessary decor. In an ideal world, I would then dust all the surfaces and vacuum since a huge tree and decorations can be hard to work around once they’re in place for the month. May be the last good clean for a while. ?

    This was helpful but can I tell you what was most helpful is reading that I’m not the only one who kinda dreads Christmas decorating. I’m also the one that wants to make it all disappear the day after Christmas! To me it’s extra clutter to the already overwhelming mess I have with two little ones. I like these ideas of quieting the house. Before my oldest daughter’s first Christmas, I purged toys while she was sleeping . My Christmas loving husband called me the Grinch but after he saw all the new presents she received, he understood and was very grateful!

    Super helpful!! I am going to “quiet the house” today (love that term) and then just put up a few things I really love 🙂

    Last year I took all the kids toys, books, puzzles, etc and divided them into 5 big totes. (One for each season + Christmas/dec). It helps me purge every 3-4 months, keeps clutter down and they get so excited each time for the “new” toys! It’s life changing! I just put away all the fall stuff and pulled out the smaller Christmas bin. They were thrilled with the books, puzzle and 3-4 toys. And the playroom is basically empty and ready for the new gifts! Happy Mama! We keep out a few things like legos, hot wheels and magnetic blocks all year round.

    I’d love to hear what holiday decorations you love. (Maybe that’s the next post?) That’s been something that I have not allowed myself to spend money on, but that does bring me joy. Also, we’ve moved a ton, but now that we are in our forever home, it seems like I could get good at decorating simply. Thank you!
