I’m so excited to be sharing my first Christmas decorating post this year! Can you believe how close the holidays are? We’re SO eager for the festivities to begin in our home, especially with our new gorgeous blue and gold Christmas tree and garland. They’re both absolutely stunning, decorated with all new blue and gold Christmas ornaments that are just exquisite – I couldn’t love them more!

I’ve partnered with Balsam Hill this year, to bring you what I think is our most gorgeous Christmas decor yet! I truly love it all so much and I think you will too. The fun part is I’ve teamed up with two of my favorite people and blogging friends – Bree, from ZDesign At Home and Jennifer, from Decor Gold Designs, to bring you our fabulous Christmas tree tour – just wait until you see their spectacular trees and decor.

Sit back, relax and enjoy!

This year, I went back to my favorite colors, blue, white and gold, and I’m in love with how these colors look on our gorgeous, new 9 foot Silverado Slim Christmas tree with Ultra Bright Micro Clear LED lights.

If you’ve been reading with me for a few years, you’re probably used to seeing a flocked tree in our home! Last year’s blue and red Christmas tree was such a fun color palette!

This year, I chose this stunning and very natural looking green tree. Our new Silverado Slim Christmas tree could not be more beautiful – it is like a magical Christmas wonderland in our home.

This LED Christmas tree has 8000 (yes, 8000!) micro LED lights and they are truly something to marvel at. We were all so blown away when we first put it up…it’s so spectacular!

I love the slender lines of this tree, at 9 feet tall and 50 inches wide, it fits perfectly in our modestly sized living room.

Bringing back my favorite blue and gold color palette feels so right in our home, in case you didn’t know, blue happens to be my favorite color!

When I found these classic and elegant Biltmore Legacy Sapphire & Gold ornaments, I knew I had to have them.

Seriously, these were made for me. So many stunning details in these beautifully hand-painted works of art, these are ornaments to last a lifetime and hand down to your children.

Speaking of kids, I’m always so excited to hear what our kids think of our tree each year, and they just love how this tree turned out!

Christmas decorating is a big deal in our home and hearing how much our teenagers love our blue and gold Christmas tree and garland, makes my heart sing.

I have a deep affection for blue and gold Christmas decorations on the Christmas tree; they bring a touch of elegance and enchantment to the holiday season.

I used two, 35-piece sets of the Sapphire & Gold ornaments and combined them with one, 35 piece set of Biltmore Legacy ornaments in gold and pearl tones to decorate both our tree and garland.

They’re all so beautiful, our living room feels so mystical!

I decorated our blue and gold Christmas tree with these three sets, combined with some of my existing blue and white ornaments.

I also used some other favorites that I’ve had from Balsam Hill for a few years now, in gorgeous silver and gold.

All of the detail in these gorgeous, hand-painted glass ornaments is quite incredible. 

Elegant, grand, timeless…so much to love in these pieces!

I also decorated our tree with one set each of the Biltmore Legacy Glass Finial Set (one of the finials is hanging on the garland) and the Biltmore Legacy Glass Jumbo Ball Set.

Anyone who knows me, knows my blue and white Chinoiserie is a mainstay in our home, and all of our new Christmas decor is the perfect compliment to our home’s blue, white and gold color palette.

Elevate your Christmas tree with a vertical ribbon cascade style. Start by taking a wired ribbon and creating cascading folds, starting from the top of the tree, to achieve a mesmerizing effect. As you work your way down, securely tuck the ribbon into the inner branches for a seamless look. To add a touch of sophistication, trim the ribbon ends into a fishtail shape or roll them up for an elegant finish.

I used a combination of four different types of ribbon, all in blue and gold as well, and I added a combination of frosted blueberry picks and gold leaf picks as well.

I just love this elegant and beautiful tree adorned with hints of blue Christmas decor and enchanting blue decorations for the Christmas tree. It perfectly captures my fondness for the serene and captivating allure of blue, and I’m absolutely thrilled with how it turned out with all of our new ornaments and decorations!

Let’s talk about our beautiful and elegant new garland…

I usually have a flocked garland, although in last year’s Christmas living room I added greenery to change it up a little.

This year, I went all green and am loving it so much! I chose the 10′ BH Balsam Fir Garland 2-pack, the second garland is in our Christmas entryway and it is a stunner! 


The greenery is so elegant and has a much more traditional look and feel. It’s just perfect on our mantel.
