One of the fun things about un-decorating from Christmas is that you can still leave out a lot of your things and swing them over for a New Year's party or just into Winter. There's no reason to put it all away at once ... the teals, and silvers and pinks of the holidays are just as pretty when there's a bunch of snow outside the window. You just have to find ways to refresh and rework it all!
The whiteness and glittery-ness of this time of year is just so appealing to me. Probably from living in Minnesota! But so is the sparkliness and the reflecting of light ... it gets dark pretty early still. Decorating for Winter is also kind of girly! You get to use more candles and small lights, too ... so fun!
So there you go ... permission to take it easy and not have to put away everything at once ... to take some time and enjoy the slower pace after the holidaze. Take out the parts that are very obviously red and green and leave in those pieces that sparkle and shine!
