Deck the RV halls

RV holiday 7

What a difference a year makes. This time last year, I had 5 Christmas trees, various mantles, hallways, arches, tables, porches, cabinets, and a cat bathroom decked out in as much greenery as I could stand. When I packed everything up last year, I was 99% sure we would not have our house construction complete and would not need all the boxes of Christmas cheer. We packed them carefully and stashed them on the highest shelf in the shop.

Throughout this year, we collected ornaments, as usual, during our travels. I thought I might find a small table-top tree to use for our few travel ornaments. I knew space would be VERY limited and I was determined to be content with a small table tree and a mug or two.

And, we continued with our ornament tradition, knowing they might not get displayed until next year. These are clay-fired and heavy and I wasn’t going to trust them on a shaky small tree.

But, I was delusional if I thought I could let the holidays pass without decking some RV halls. I threw my good intentions out the slide window and I went shopping!  With a 2300 square foot house in the works, I have no doubt I will be able to use all this next year.

My “style” has always featured natural greens, berries, pine cones, reds+greens, lanterns, firewood. I like natural containers like glass, galvanized metal, baskets. I like textures like burlap and cotton. I love the holiday plaid. The trend in many stores includes the truck with the tree on top. I am stocking up on those items and camper/rv ornaments.  The more clichéd, the better Smile

Just because we eat with camping utensils doesn’t mean I can’t make it festive.

My mug collection is legendary. And every mug is wrapped in layers of bubble wrap. I found 4 mugs over the past couple of weeks that I will use daily. All coffee/chocolate/toddies must be savored in a holiday mug.

Small counter space, but I love having a hot chocolate station handy.

Deer? Why not? We live in the country and deer prance in my backyard. Plus, Rudolph has a special place in my childhood viewing memories.
