When it comes to decorating for the holidays, there are usually two thought processes:
1: It’s never too early to decorate for Christmas!
2: Decorating for Christmas must wait until after Thanksgiving
I fall in Category 1, and by my standards, I’m actually behind on decorating this year! The past few years, I’ve had my tree up by the first weekend in November. I really wanted to put our Christmas tree up this weekend, but Michael was out of town, so I decided to wait. However, that didn’t stop me from searching for ornaments to decorate with! I decided to visit a few local shops and found so many fun ornaments for the tree.
I really love a tree that doesn’t look “perfect” or overdone. I love a mix of ornaments, and especially love those that have special morning, or a fun story attached to them! Ornaments also make wonderful gift ideas. I stumbled upon many today where I found myself thinking “that would be perfect for ___ (insert friend or family member)”. I love them as gifts on their own, or attached to gifts as a topper.
During my shopping excursion, I found so many beautiful ornaments, like these adorable garden boots, and this greenhouse ornament, and it inspired me to round up some of my favorites:
If you’re on the hunt for special ornaments for your tree and you live locally in Charleston, I highly recommend checking out Abide-A-While Garden Boutique, Out of Hand, Celadon Home, Steven Shell Living, Hyams Garden Center, Charleston Flower Market, Megan Molten Shop, and Elizabeth Stuart for special ornament finds!

Those are my favorites, too! 🙂 Can’t wait for our holiday ornament shopping together!
