Well something happened this weekend at my house….Christmas happened, that’s what!
Now before you pooh-pooh me that it’s too soon, I’m in Canada so we’ve already had our Thanksgiving earlier in October and Halloween is over so Christmas is fair game.
And I know so many of my US friends decorate for Christmas now too. We really want to give you, our lovely readers, as much inspiration ahead of time as possible.
And with all the work of putting up trees (yes, plural) and decorating, we just want to enjoy it longer.
Sip hot chocolate and snuggle with our kiddos on the couch longer. Because that’s what at a beautiful tree in the room does.
I watched tonight as my kids naturally sat close to it and snuggled in the chairs near by.
And honestly I thought these new ornaments that I received from Balsam Hill would be way too fancy for my home, but they fit right in.
They’re neutral (which is a must for me) but the glitter and jewels off these ornaments just make everything in the room sparkle and pretty.
Let me show off this gorgeous glittered and jewelled Christmas tree.
Here is my new tree that I just purchased this weekend. It looks beautiful without anything on it.
But now comes the fun part, the decorating!
Do you know what picks are? Have you put them on your tree ever? I haven’t and have seem them just over the past couple of years.
They are basically an ornament you just stick in the tree and have it stick out a bit for dimension.
These magnolia picks are gorgeous and I’m in love with picks now.
The ornaments are jumbo size which fill in the tree so nicely. This set came with 35 pieces and I thought it wouldn’t be enough. I actually had a hard time fitting them all on this tree!
The bejewelled white silk ribbon and glittery ornaments are stunning. I’ve never had such a fancy tree before.
It’s like this tree needs to hold a glass of champagne and wear stilettos it’s so fancy.
I’m in looooove with these magnolia picks.
I love the mix of texture and colours in this set. This one looks like bronze.
Please excuse the mass of photos. I can’t help myself!
I wasn’t sure if the picks and ribbon would go together or be too much but I think they look perfect together.
The combination from a distance is stunning as well.
Here are some shots with the Christmas lights on.
I made a bow out of this gorgeous grey velvet ribbon.
Here is a close-up of the tree skirt. I love the sparkle with the linen fabric and the big buttons.
I’m in love with this fancy tree. I hope you liked the glitter and jewels as much as I do.
