DECATUR, Ga. -- This year Decatur ordered new holiday decorations for their lamp posts.  

But after receiving them, they called them "underwhelming" and decided to go back to the old decorations.

On the city's blog they posted:

OK, we agree, the new holiday decorations don't measure up to our standards. Rather than looking like swags, they look like upside down trees and they just don't work on the street lamps. Many of our holiday wreaths date back to 1996 and were starting to look shabby. We thought it would be a good idea to trade them out for something different and replace the oldest wreaths with an updated design. Boy were we wrong! So, when you mess up, admit it, take responsibility and fix it. 

The city put up the old wreaths and plan on ordering new wreaths next season.
