Oh Christmas Tree

Monday, December 12, 2011

Get ready for picture overload. Apologies in advance :).

Today is the day that I get to share one of my most favorite things in the world...our one and only Christmas Tree!

Normally, I only take pictures for the blog during the day since they tend to look nicer and brighter....but I just HAD to make an exception for the tree. Oh, the lights. How I love thee.

I believe in a well stocked tree. Lots of glitter, lots of frill, but with a ton of natural elements as well.

I decided to stick random things from around the house in the branches this year, and I have to say....I'm never going back. More green apples to match the fireplace, twigs that are normally in a vase in the living room, and feathers that I found at Paul Michael's.

I also used some apple green ribbon. Oh and the polka dots. I just could resist them. (I'm a sucker for polka dots....they were even on my wedding dress!)

My mom taught me how to make one of her legendary bows last year. This skill has come in quite handy.

Can't wait to see everyone else's trees! I will be posting the rest of our decorations on Thursday!
