Two weeks before Thanksgiving, my mom asked me if she could send me some Christmas decor for my apartment. I was all, "NO MOM, MY APARTMENT IS ONLY 600 SQFT WHERE WOULD I PUT IT." And then she rolled her eyes at my being ornery (I assume, because we were only texting.)
Then I went home before a friend's wedding just outside of my hometown, and went to run some errands at Target. I'm not sure if it was the decaf peppermint mocha or the fact that I was in my childhood Target, but I changed my mind upon seeing the Christmas junk in the dollar aisle and decided I must have all the cute things for my apartment this holiday season.
Since I have a pretty dark couch and semi-dark wood flooring, I knew I wanted to do something airy and bright to decorate. I decided to splurge on my tree, because it's a skinny tree and perfect for a small apartment like mine! The theme I had in mind was kind of "champagne chic", which I achieved using lots of tan, rose gold, and glitzy accent pieces.
