Our 2013 Christmas Décor

I hope your Christmas was filled with joyous merriment and epicurean delights!

I realize New Years Eve parties are now on everyone’s mind, but I thought I’d still share with you some of my Christmas décor from this year in our cozy apartment.

2013 Christmas Décor on BondGirlGlam.comWe usually get a Noble Fir, but this year we went with a Nordmann Fir.  Nordmanns remind me of Nobles, but their needles are a deeper green on top and almost blue-ish underneath (you can see the “blue” best when it’s tied up).  Also, they hold their needles longer, so cleanup has been easier this year.  Ours is still so nice to the touch, weeks after we bought it at the beginning of the month!  I did water it religiously every day; I’ve been a little lazier in years past.  Oh, and Sugar Kitten is always photo-bombing.
