Jennifer Aydin hasn't let the painful recovery time after having a recent tummy tuck affect her enthusiasm for holiday decorating at all. And that's honestly no simple feat because The Real Housewives of New Jersey mother of five lives in a sprawling 12,000-square-foot home with nine bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, an elevator, and a basement spa/sports complex. She would be forgiven for taking a year off of putting up a tree and decorations for Christmas, but that's not how Jennifer rolls!
"Just a small glimpse of what I've been working on all day, or actually navigating people to do for me all day - lol," she wrote in her Instagram Stories, acknowledging the extra helping hands that have made it possible this year.
We spy at least three finished Christmas trees, each decorated with giant red and gold ornaments, in her behind-the-scenes video clips. The kids' blinged-out stockings are all hung by the chimney mantelpiece with care. Elsewhere in the house, two drumming Nutcrackers add an even more festive feel. There's also tons of lovely stair flair, and she's even got some oversized ornaments hanging from the staircase itself, which is exceptionally creative.
But no matter what she's got going on each year, there's one item that Jennifer needs to feel like it's all complete. Can you guess what it is?
"There always has to be a nativity for me," Jennifer shared.
