So this holiday season my apartment was a bit lackluster in holiday flair. I would say the cause of this is due to the departure of our roommate Jillian Ozkara. She tended to get super into the holidays to a point where some might find it over the top. The only example that comes to mind is that I know for a fact that she has different types of dishtowels for every single holiday. My personal favorite are the Halloween dish towels. After a lot of internal debate I came to the conclusion that I wanted to decorate the apartment, but did not want to spend a bunch of money because I felt it could be used for better things, like gifts for others. See below for the finished product. I think it is almost as good as a real tree. Almost.
