This last weekend my friend Meredith and I decorated our church for Christmas. We didn't want to go with traditional Christmas decor so we opted for a silver and gold palette. For the most part we made everything ourselves so that we could keep the budget small. We reused ornaments from last year by spray painting them, we also bought the birds at the dollar store and spray painted those to match. Even though we live at the base of the mountains neither one of us wanted to go cut down evergreen branches so luckily Home Depot gave us a box of extras. It was a long day and totally worth it, we were very pleased on how it turned out (the pictures don't do it justice).
