I had no idea last year that our next holiday share will be titled Christmas in the Camper. Lots have changed in the last 2-3 months. If you missed our story, you can read about it HERE. But long story short, we sold our beloved home in September — after living in it for eleven years, bought a trailer, renovated the trailer and now traveling the US full time. The future plan is to move back to homeland, Hungary sometimes next year.
This Christmas blog hop is hosted by Krista at The Happy Housie each year. I always love to visit each participant to see their beautifully decorated home. If you are coming from Home Made Lovely, welcome. Shannon’s home has it all and it’s gorgeous.
Christmas decorating was different for me in 2020. I had to be mindful about what I brought into our small living space. We are not stationary with our camoer, we travel and change locations at least weekly, so I had to consider packing stuff away while we are traveling on the road. With that said, my holiday decor came together using lots of natural elements.
Let me show you what it looks like having Christmas in the Camper
SMALL REAL TREE FOR THE CAMPER
Small, tiny tree that is.
And it’s real. And it smells fantastic.
Yes, you can have a real tree in the camper.
We have a real tree every year so I kept the tradition. I found a cute little tree that had the perfect shape and size for our small space.
It will lose the needles eventually but I am OK with a little sweeping here and there.:-) Once we are done with the holidays, the tree will be out and no need to find storage for it. Bonus!
I dried some orange slices to hang them on our mini tree. Absolutely love the pop of color that the dried orange/grapefruit creates.
We are OBSESSED with those fairy lights. Especially being installed for the ceiling in the camper. I got these lights last year for our windows but was thinking ahead and I packed them when we left for this trip back in September.
SIMPLE GARLAND AND GREENERY
Got some wooden stars at Walmart and hung them on a piece of cotton rope. Added greenery that I clipped off of the tree outside of our camper and TADA!
Little things go along way in such small space.
I am a huge fan of using natural decor for any season. I picked up some beautiful foraged elements on our morning walk in Arizona, and I put together a simple, but gorgeous centerpiece. I used a florist sponge to have my centerpiece last longer. Check out the REEL I shared on Instagram. 🙂
DIY WREATH WITH DRIED ORANGE
I used the leftover greeneries and dried orange/ grapefruit slices for a quick and beautiful wreath.
YUP! I had to get on the paper bag star bandwagon. I just had to. It is a perfect touch in the camper. Not only inexpensive and recyclable but shows well in our small space. I added a few into our bedroom and the boy’s room.
The boy’s bedroom is spacious but has lots of stuff in it. We store things under their bunk so I didn’t want to overwhelm the space by adding lots of decoration. They got a few hanging paper stars, some small tree decorations and lights. Done!
I think I made our little cozy camper festive for the holidays.
My son keeps saying : Mom, this is a Paradise trailer.:-) What do you think?
