Caroline Manzo has been giving her social media followers a play by play of her holiday decorating progress, and one thing's for sure: A little tinsel doesn't get in the way of her keeping it real.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum started her sharing spree by giving Instagram fans a peek of her entryway staircase, which was tastefully decorated with pine, twig garland, and plush stockings. “A little less bling never hurt anyone,” she captioned the post.
Next up was a look at her enormous yet unadorned Christmas tree, which seemed to have toppled over while it was “settling” in before decorating — good thing no one was standing beneath it!
The New Jersey mom then appears to have enlisted the help of a special tuxedoed elf (husband Al) to set the tree straight, and before long it was twinkling with lights and ornaments from her son Albie's floral shop @mybloomandbirch. Caroline closed out her holiday decorating with the mantle, which she affixed with small trees, reindeer, a slew of stockings, and a jolly Old St. Nick, of course.
The tree that got a little too "settled."
Santa stopped by on a fire truck, but he offered no help with the tree. At least he knows your name, Caroline!
A tree-fixing elf appears to remedy the situation.
We'd say the Manzos are holiday ready!
