I had so many ideas swirling in my head for the last 2 months. After all that planning and plotting this year the boys decided what the Christmas tree would look like and my 5 yr. old Jacob went w/ a fir tree and by the way, I will never ever ever buy an ever green tree again. He picked it well, it's soft and leaves very little needles around. It is tall and skinny standing at 7ft tall and just as gorge as ever =)
Since Jacob picked the tree, Nelson got to pick out ornaments. He went w/ SILVER this year. I think he choose well. There are SILVER snowflakes, disco balls (all sizes), chandelier crystals that we found at a sale and wired them, Crystals from the Hob Lob (2 for $1).
And for a bit of color; I added burlap swags all around the tree LOL. I love all the glitter on our tree, it is so beautiful and regal. Too bad the pictures don't do it justice.
I had to show you this blurry shot because I still see the beauty in it...
Here are some of our ornaments. Have you seen anything else out there that would make our tree radiant? =)
Sorry about the blurry pic of the tree. The Canon Pro is on it's way! =)The boys keep running into ornaments that "need" to be placed on the tree so we keep we continued to add more ornaments about once or twice a week. Once things slow down next week, I'll post some updated pictures.
PS: did you notice the burlap mess I have as a tree skirt? LOL I decided to wait for after Christmas sales then spend $30-$50 for the tree skirt that I want. Maybe I'll score and get it for $10 =)
Thank you for visiting!!
Show me some love and follow me, I'd love to have you along for the journey =)
