I am an absolute sucker for holiday decorations. And I’m not picky. I love the over-the-top ones as much as I love the more classic and reserved.
First, the traditional ones…these are from Old Town Alexandria, Virginia–right down the river from DC. Its important to realize that classic holiday decorations don’t have to be boring. I love how these use unexpected materials and celebrate a variety of textures.
Crispus Attucks Park, a small neighborhood park in Bloomingdale, DC (full disclosure, I volunteer with the park and am a Board member) had a recent community day stringing holiday lights. It was great fun and old neighbors met new neighbors and friends. The decorations don’t have to look picture perfect to bring back warm memories.
Happy Holidays everyone!
