If Disney is the most magical place on Earth and Christmastime is the most magical time of year its no wonder they go together like Peanut Butter & Jelly (or Banana if that's your fancy). My home sparkles with the magical shimmer of Disney all year but at Christmas there are no decorations as fun or whimsical. We have a ton of stuff but I guess the best place to start is the tree.
I think having a Disney tree sort of just happened to us. It started when my mom used to let me and my sister and brother each pick out an ornament growing up. By the time I was 10 or 11 I started picking Disney ones every year (and my mom is so cute she still buys us a new ornament every year)!
I collect ornaments from most of my trips. After I got divorced I realized that having the same ornament each year was less fun than picking out something special. I like to go with what I am into in that moment to remind myself of the trip. I collect ornaments when I see them during the year (from some Disney on Broadway shows or special trips). Somewhere along the way my decorations around the house have slowly started to become Disney themed as well! The epitome of which is that thanks to a colleague all of my "extra" or "filler" ornaments are the beautiful ones that came from a monthly subscription!
I am also a big fan of the snowglobe pairs and ornaments Disney Store offers each year. And
I guess the idea of Disney magic isn't that different from Christmas magic... it stays the whole year through, I know there are lots of people today who still don’t get it but
I do, and you do if you are reading this, you probably do too!
Looking for some holiday ideas? I am always fully stocked in Disney cocoa, and OF COURSE I always manage to incorporate Disney it into my Christmas baking. (Click the pictures below for the links to the recipes pictured!)
