The tree in our family room is one of my favorites that I’ve ever decorated! It’s a shorter, fatter tree than what I had in the past and I love the flocking!
Using red as part of my Christmas decorations is a must for my family and well as myself! The bright and cheery color brings a festive vibe to a space like no other.
Tree #2 – Elegant & Woodsy (no link yet!)
I haven’t shared the tree in my dining room yet, so you’re getting a first look here! I love the rustic pinecones and matte ornaments mixed with the glam gold ornaments, silk ribbon and glittery curling garland.
I’ll be sharing all of my dining room in a few days, so be sure to come back for the tour!
This was the main tree in our family room last year. I was inspired by how much I loved the sagey green of eucalyptus combined with red. The buffalo check ribbon and ornaments made quite a bold statement on their own, so I was able to keep the actual ornaments on the tree very simple.
I was so inspired by the black and white buffalo check ribbon, ornaments and tree skirt that I added two small trees with the same pattern and colors on the opposite side of the fireplace. The effect of the tree, mantel and pair of small trees was quite the stunner!
I put up two large trees every year – one in our family room and the other in our dining room. I like for the tree and decor in our dining room to be a little more elegant.
I found this combination of apple green mixed with silver on a flocked tree to be just beautiful!
I absolutely love adding unexpected decorations in my home at Christmas! In 2018, I was inspired by several cardboard Christmas houses that I had purchased on clearance after Christmas a year or two before.
I held the houses in place on the tree by drilling small holes in the base of each house and using florists wire wrapped around the branches. It was such a fun tree!
The first year that I ever had a flocked tree was 2018 and I wanted to make sure that whatever color theme I used popped against all that snow!
I’m always looking for something to inspire my decor every year and this year it was really pretty teal colored glass compote dishes that I ran across and fell in love with. My entire dining room was decorated for the season with that color in mind.
In 2017, my family room Christmas tree decorations were inspired by luscious silk red and green plaid ribbon, along with the coordinating stripe that I found at a local shop.
I took the time to go through all of my ornaments, one by one, and only used the ones that fit with my festive Christmas theme that year.
I was inspired by ribbon once again when I decorated the tree in my dining room the same year.
Chalkboards are still one of my favorite decorating accessories and this wide chalkboard-look ribbon inspired a red, black and white Christmas tree.
My entire tree and family room decor the year that I had this tree was inspired by a wreath I had seen in a magazine and did my best to duplicate. Every year it seems that I say this tree is my favorite, but this one was really over the top fabulous!
It was also one of the messiest because….glitter. Glitter everywhere, but it was so worth it!
For this year, I decided to go totally farmhouse with my tree and mantel. My Christmas “roots” lie in traditional red and green – but in an updated farmhouse’ish way – at least this particular year.
My tree was loaded with a variety of ornaments, tartan plaid ribbon, checked ribbon, a white pompom garland and a Nordic sweater garland that I fell in love with. A little bit of everything, you might say.
Merry Christmas and happy tree trimming, my friends!
