I am really loving this white & natural look. I am normally a red & gold girl but this just looks so elegant to me & it was so easy. I may have to do some after Christmas shopping for some white ornaments.
This is the only picture I have taken so far of my "big" tree. It is in our family room & is the largest tree we have. It is 9 feet & just the perfect tree. The bottom branches lay on the floor so it looks perfect even without presents! We had a 12 foot tree for years, we got it the year I was pregnant with my daughter. That was fun! 8 months pregnant & on top of a ladder because I am the only one who could decorate the tree "right". Oh, and it wasn't prelit! We have had this 9 foot prelit tree for a few years & I am so much happier with it!
I saw this idea at Pier 1 this year & decided it would be easy & super cute (not to mention much cheaper). I just filled some clear balls with cute brown feathers. Easy peasy.
The other pictures are all from last year, I hope to get some of this years trees but I am not really feeling it, yet. Maybe its because we don't know what our plans are for Christmas. Last year we had family here on Christmas Eve & Christmas day. I felt with all that company coming I needed to go all out. I just don't feel that way this year.
Our family tree last year was red & gold. Since I was too lazy to pull all that those boxes out we went with the green & brown theme that I normally put on our basement tree. It was about 1/3 of the ornaments. That will make me very happy when I put all this stuff away in a few weeks.
This was the mantel in the basement last year. This year it is empty since all this is one our big tree this year.
Hopefully when I am not feeling lazy, I will get some pictures of this years trees. :)
