For the past 5 or so years I have become very mellow about Christmas and only get a few special decorations out of the attic.
I am so mellow this year that I haven't done any decorating yet but I'll probably do a few things this weekend.
These shots are from my previous mellow Christmas decorating.
I remember when I used to a big tree every Christmas and move furniture around to fit it into my living room but with age I've mellowed out.
I thought these shots would fit both themes because they are all from my mellow Christmas decorating years. The shot below makes me laugh because it looks like I tossed the decorations on the table. That's about as mellow as decorating gets.
The advent calendar in the first shot reminds me of my child and I reading the Christmas story for each day of advent during breakfast.
I probably won't get that advent calendar down since we're already half way through advent and I don't have a child at home to read it with me. Since I stopped getting a big tree at Christmas I tend to hang ornaments anywhere that's handy because I have so many that I like.

I love your mellow Christmas :) We still have an 18 yr old at home and hubby is big on Christmas decorating, but I enjoy how you decorate :) You could even leave a couple about and have Christmas cheer year through :)
Merry Christmas Carver wishing you and you family all the best for 2014 too!
My photo hunt entry for this week
We don't celebrate Christmas at home, so I don't have to spend time decorating. Every year, there will be a couple of Christmas parties to attend. Merry Christmas Carver!
I don't usually celebrate Christmas in the conventional sense -- but this year, I was given a Hello Kitty advent calendar filled with chocolates for each day covered by the calendar... ;)
For a mellow Christmas decoration, it looks very cheerful and they are beautiful. I also was rather reluctant to dig out all these things, and had no fun to put them up, it was rather work ! But I have a 3 year old grandson so I was on Grandma duty !
Christmas was only nice when I was a child and when my son was little. After that it became family duty ! Maybe this year will be better with a little one.
I love your decorarions. We haven't had a real xmas tree in years, and my decorations are truly minimal since there are no children around. I have my advent candles for the xmas spirit. Merry Xmas to you and yours, Carver!
Love the mellow look. I have decided that Christmas is just a ton of work. The mellow approach is the way to go.
Have a great weekend!
I like your decorations and good for you for going mellow. I still haven't decorated either. :) I might just throw some on the table like you did. :)
I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday!
Mellow Christmas is still Christmas. To many times we get caught up in the rush of the holidays. My favorite is the simple nativity.
Merry Mellow Christmas ~
It is good to change it up from time to time!

I love the ornaments hanging everywhere -- wish I'd thought of that.
We have lights on our boat and lanai ...that's about all.
I do want to wish you and your Bill a happy Christmas and New Year and thank you for the great posts all year!!
Wonderful Christmas decorations.
I wish You a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !
