The NEW Tree With Ornaments ON

How was your weekend? Did you get to do anything fun or relaxing? Hopefully a little of both. It was a busy weekend here. It was one of those that was such a blur that I hardly remember what we did. I did get the house mostly decorated for Christmas though! I feel like I can relax more and enjoy things better.


I said I would show you our tree so here it is. :) Don't laugh! I think it's is elegant but also looks like it grew up through the house the way it touches the ceiling so Dr. Seuss comes to mind too! My mother-in-law saw this one in a store and sent me the link and I'm so glad she did. I got a pretty good deal on it and it's very pretty in person, oh and came pre-lit = heaven not to have to add lights! It's slimmer than our old one so it fits in the bay window very well and doesn't take up much room. Gosh I could be a sales person for this tree company! :)


I normally put a silver star on top but since this 9 footer hit the 9 foot ceiling I couldn't. Way to go buying a 9 foot tree with 9 foot ceilings. Not the smartest thing I have done lately but I can take a section off and use it at 7 1/2 feet too. I actually folded down the top of the tree to fit it in the room. Whoops! I added a very wide bow to the top as you can see. The walls in this room are a reddish/brownish/sometimes give a terracotta look, and the blue and silver accents on the tree contrast nicely against the walls.


Now that the tree is done I can focus on other things too. I will be sharing some homemade gifts I am working on and some super simple Christmas decorations anyone can do!

Hope you have a great week!

It looks great,mine sadly has been toddler attacked. First time in a few years since I've had real little ones and I forgot what they do. So far a few broken glass balls and the tops off a few more. About to go back to work full time so I'm not going to worry to much about it this year, next year the play pen is coming out! :)

Thank you so much. I just love decorating for Christmas! We have a toddler too and he thinks the balls are actual balls. Yesterday was the first where he smashed one. We feel like we need to put a fence around the tree to keep him off of it. :)

That is one tall tree. I love tall trees. Last year we had just like that and I also couldn't fit the star. So I decided to get a 7 feet this time...


Thanks for playing along at docerelacreations.

Beautiful tree! I am scared of heights so I'd have to get my husband to decorate one that tall. Yours looks great, all the way to the tip top!

Thanks so much for linking up to the Show your Glow party! Your pictures are beautiful. :)
