Decorations, entire with lights and themes, adorn each individual space in her Ardmore household.

Walker reported every year she begins obtaining out all of her decorations in October.

“I’ll just pull anything out, established it up in the garage, and go by way of what I have,” she said. “Sometimes I really do not even remember it all! Then I start out placing anything with each other in November.”

She stated she often commences with her black and white themed visitor bed room and then goes from room to space placing out the relaxation of the decor.
