Monday Matters: December 10th and Counting…is your Decor Done?
Just to put you at ease
We just decorated our Christmas Tree at the Cabin
Yes, A Designer waited until December 8th & 9th to pull out the ornaments…
I like to take the time IN December to put the music on and make Holiday Merry in our Cabin in the woods
One of the things clients and friends ask often
“How many days should I spend Decorating?”
Have you ever wanted someone to just pull out the buzzer and say “game over” on the Decorating?
So years ago, I came up with some very simple rules of thumb
# Days on Holiday Decorating = Per Thousand Square Feet
3 Days = 3,000 Square Feet
Any more and it might be time to watch Danny DeVito in some Christmas Movies for some perspective…
So this weekend, we spent 2 days decking our cabin out for the Holiday
When we have Christmas Parties, ok…I confess…I will spend a solid 4 days & corral some help
But that is still within our guidelines (almost;)
Give yourself permission to put the ribbon down & enjoy the fruit of your labor!
This reasonable timeline has helped me enjoy the process for years
You and I are creating our custom holiday homes
So as this “Power Week” (what I refer to the second full week in December) rolls in
(Parties, Luncheons, Drinks with friends, Office Parties, Cards to mail, Presents to buy….)
Remember that rule of thumb
