Thinking of pulling out all those boxes of Christmas ornaments and decorating the same way as last year?  We love traditional and affordable decorating.  This year we’ve had lots of requests for ideas to add a fresh look at a low cost – so have been on the hunt!

How about a few fun and new pieces that will spice up your holiday decorating! We were shopping and found some hot looks and great buys at Real Deals!

Lime green is a hot color this year! Think it won’t work into your holiday décor?  Or that you wouldn’t like that color in your home?

Think again!

New trends in Christmas decoratingWe love these ornaments!

Affordable Christmas decor from Real Deals






And love the impact they can make at such a tiny price! (I saw similar ones in Walmart for $1 each and they also came in a jumbo pack for $15 . . . I think these are a much better value and love the color!

Buy a bunch and I’m sure you’ll come up with lots of great ideas to add a fresh and festive look to your home!

Paired with silver I think they make a sophisticated look on the Christmas tree.

This Christmas tree is in the Real Deals store in NE Portland (stop by for inspiration!)– beautiful!

The balls can add a dramatic look in apothecary jars or glass vases.

Wouldn’t you love these on an entry table, mantle or as a beautiful (and lasting) centerpiece?  Maybe lime green isn’t your color, they also come in a beautiful ruby red.
