Simply Beautiful Holiday Decor – Quick Tip #2

Delegate Tasks

The family was happy leaving the tree assembly up to me this year, and after messing it up, taking it apart and finally putting it back together correctly (yes, one really can mess this stuff up!), I handed the ornaments over to the kids – so I could give my Christmas cheer a little rejuvenation (aka: dark chocolate and a glass of wine). I would normally assist in the tree adornment process but I figured I’d just set them loose this year – I was impressed. They got along, joyfully cooperated and even helped each other stand on tiptoes atop a chair to reach the highest places…we ended up with a beautifully decorated tree. And, while I did do a bit of readjusting later (it looked like the tree was being strangled by a blue tinsel python) it was PeRFeCT and they loved being fully in charge. Now to convince my hubby to hang those exterrior lights.
