In the spirit of only using what I have on hand, I painted my ornaments with glitter nail polish.
While I don't recommend going out and buying nail polish to use as paint it is fantastic. It doesn't show in the photos but they flash like disco balls. Even the white ones are covered in white and holographic glitter and flash the prettiest.
I've already hosted Christmas for my dad and his wife and my brother. We hung the ornaments from the ceiling and put up my garland and Christmas lights around the window
I served a meal every two hours, we exchanged gifts, and watched Dexter. A nice traditional family Christmas. Another tradition I followed, I didn't take a photo of any of the knitted gifts before giving them away.
