Which Holidays Do You Decorate For?

Which Holidays Do You Decorate For?

This weekend a friend and I came head to head on a battle of home decor. She's the type who decorates for every season and if it was socially acceptable would decorate for individual days of the week as well. I on the other hand, prefer to keep things minimal and really go all out around Christmas time. So I'm curious. What seasons do you decorate for? Am I the only fuddy duddy?

It can be difficult to stand my ground with new fun and pretty products hitting the stores (like those plates pictured above from West Elm).

At first, my need to decorate for the holidays stemmed from necessity. After you've moved 10 times in 10 years, you get a little worn out on moving boxes labeled Easter or 4th of July. Now that I've stayed put for more than 8 months, it feels like I could start being one of those people again, but truth be told, I rather like the time I have to do other things instead of digging around in storage on my only free Saturday afternoon of the season.

What seasons or holidays do you get excited for? How do you make time to dress your space? Is it family tradition or something you just like to have fun with and enjoy doing? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
