FLOCKED CHRISTMAS TREE WITH NAVY, LIGHT BLUE, SILVER AND GOLD ORNAMENTS

How is your decorating coming along? Do you have your tree finished yet? How about your mantel, if you’re decorating one? Your porch and entryway? I finally finished our tree two days ago and have to say I’m exhausted! I’ve been decorating our home now for about three weeks, maybe even a month and I can finally say I’m finished tweaking and primping, fluffing and twisting, tying ribbon and moving things around the house about 5000 times. Not to mention the six thousand trips to HomeSense and Michael’s, buying, returning, buying again, returning again, exchanging, you name it! The joys of holiday decorating, right? Ah but I love it! No complaints over here, and although I’m still not ready to share my full home tour just yet (it’s coming, soon, I promise!), I wanted to share our tree with you today. You’ll see a few peeks of the living room, but that’s about it for now. So please, be a little more patient with me, I will get there, I swear!

Beautiful, flocked Christmas tree adorned with navy, light blue and elegant metallics, is sophisticated and refreshing for your holiday decor.This year, I decorated only one tree – I don’t even know how my blogging friends with multiple trees, pull it all off each year! My hat goes off to them, because I’ve only done about one tenth of what they do, and I am pooped, people! That being said, no matter how much work it is, getting it all done so early, allows us to enjoy our home all decked out for the season – everyone is in the Christmas spirit and I’m thrilled that my hubby and kids love our decor this year. If you haven’t had a chance to see my inspiration post outlining my theme, you can read all about it right here.

I always use metallics and I usually have touches of blue or green, but this year I went full force and am loving it! Beautiful, flocked Christmas tree adorned with navy, light blue and elegant metallics, is sophisticated and refreshing for your holiday decor.If you missed my two previous Christmas posts – Christmas Decorating Tips and A Classic Christmas Tablescape, you can catch them both here and here.

    It looks so beautiful!! The tree is spectacular. Blue and white is my absolute favourite. I was going to do a similar colour them this year but I had such a hard time finding blue decorations! So I went with pink and gold…..should have stuck with blue…i am not finding pink either. LOL Heading to ribbon and box store this morning in the hopes that I will find SOMETHING that i can use.
    Merry Christmas!

    Can you give us some tips on how to make the tree so pretty (it looks stunning, by the way). Start with _____, then _____, then add ____ . Do you buy a ton at after-Christmas sales?

      Michelle, that is a great idea, I will try to remember that, and if I have time I will do a quick post on that idea! I always like to start with the largest ornaments, and go from there. I try my best to make sure that everything is even distributed and create almost a diamond pattern with each type of ornament if I can. Then I fill in the large ‘holes’ with my tree picks, also creating a diamond/zigzag pattern – nothing in rows! Last, I fill all the rest of the empty spots with my ribbons, and keep going until it’s full! I hope that helps!! And I rarely get to the sales, which is a bad thing, because I LOVE to collect ornaments! Thanks for stopping today! xo
