As someone with over 100 Christmas trees, I have learned a thing or two over the years about storage and the many nemeses of holiday decor. Number 1 on the list of this holiday-obsessed Texan: heat. Here are a few tips to help you plan storage now in the winter thinking ahead to the summer so your holiday decorations are in tip-top shape come next Christmas.

If your attic is temperature controlled, hooray for you. If you’re like me, store your whites somewhere in the house, like a closet.

New Year’s resolutions are a dime a dozen. Making them is the easy part, sticking to them is a different story. I like to think of resolutions as goals of visions for the future as opposed to resolutions. Being a visual person (can you tell from my groovy NYE tree), actually making something physical like a vision board helps me not only realize my goals for the upcoming year, it helps those goals to actualize.

Decorating a green Christmas tree with a vintage Santa collection.

Believe it or not, I have a traditional tree in my house—a whole room even with red, white and green. After last week’s tour of my Colorful Christmas Home, you were starting to worry weren’t you? My Oh Christmas Tree from Treetopia is the showstopper. Sure, it is 75 degrees outside but it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas in my game room. The nice thing about a green tree (or any tree) is that it is a blank slate. Besides ornaments, I like for my trees to have a theme. Last year I decorated the tree with my vintage Fisher Price toy collection. This year it is all Santa, all the time.
