Because we were gone to New Orleans for a week, I am behind on putting away Christmas. Yesterday I finished the guest room. The room doesn’t have a lot of Christmas decorations. Three boxes hold it all. It didn’t take long to put it away.
One storage box is an ornament box, which holds most of the tree’s ornaments. The plain glass balls are stored separately in a plastic sack. I don’t bother wrapping each one of those. Balls with decoration or glitter go into the ornament box, without wrapping. Fragile ornaments are wrapped with tissue paper and placed around them to keep them from shifting.
Unbreakable ornaments are not wrapped in tissue paper before being placed in the ornament box for storage. Small ornaments are tucked into leftover spaces.
The other boxes hold the plastic bag of plain balls, a bag of silk flowers for the tree, tulle for under the tree, the three trees for the top of the bookcase, etc.
We have a lot of wreaths in the house during the holidays. This one decorates the door to the guest room. It will be covered with a white garbage bag and hung in the attic until next Christmas.
There are three trees left on the first floor. Tomorrow, I will start taking down the big one in the living room. ~~Rhonda
