Outdoor Decorating With Sears

As I shared last week, we have never had a home with a place to decorate outside so I was really excited to head to Sears to get some outdoor Christmas decorations. There was a lot to choose from but I decided to buy three items to decorate the front of our home.

Here’s a close-up of the reindeer:

White Christmas lights are my favorite and I really like the spiral tree. It was easy to setup and makes the house look instantly festive. After I took this picture we had to move it from the porch because it has to be staked into the ground or else it falls over (it also looks really cute inside). I got two reindeer on sale for a great price and like that they move their heads. I thought about getting a wreath for the front door but didn’t think there would be enough room between the door and the screen door.

Sears had a great outdoor decor section in their store and I liked how they had everything displayed so you could see the products. The only thing I wished I would have seen but didn’t is a Nativity scene. I know they have one in their online store but I would have liked to purchase one when I was shopping in the store since that is what Christmas is about.

Outdoor Decoration Shopping At Sears

I love Christmas. It’s my favorite time of the year. I also love decorating for it. {I have been guilty of decorating on Halloween night before!} This year we dragged out our Christmas decorations and set up our tree in the middle of November.

We have a lot of indoor decorations but no outside ones. Last year we moved at the end of November into a house for the first time so we didn’t put any decorations up and we didn’t have any from previous years in the apartment so I headed out to Sears to buy some decorations for outside.

I used to think of Sears as a tools and appliance store but I discovered that they had so much more when I went shopping in their “toy shop” at Christmas last year. I found the Christmas decorations near the workout machines. They had a couple aisles of indoor decor and a large section of outdoor decor. Here are some of the things that I found:

Spiral Tree

Lighted characters

M&M Lawn Characters

***

Pre-lit Wreath

They had so many great things it was hard to choose which I wanted to purchase to decorate my front yard. To see what other items I found you can check out my Google+ story or check out Sears Real Cheer site to get some inspiration for decorating your own home (inside and outside).

Pictures to come next week after I get all of my outdoor decorations up!

Sad Little Christmas Tree {Wordless Wednesday}

Where's Lucas?

This is how the boys decorate the tree....

The boys were “decorating” the tree with the string and papers that came out of the box. We tried putting ornaments on it but after a few got broken we decided not to add any ornaments until we could get some non-breakable ones. Now we have a sad little Christmas tree with nothing on it.
