Out of every blog post or article I write, this one is always my favorite.
I love when the Christmas tree decorations get revealed! This is how I always start giving a holiday tour to my home. This year I have really tried to spend that extra little moment with the details.
I have also tried to amp up my decorations by adding more white with my tree in the living room.
White colored ornaments were harder to find then I thought, let me tell you!
I am going to try and break it down for you because I know how expensive it can be when you want a color you don't have a lot of, or worse. This is your first tree and you have to start from scratch? Yikes!
90% of the ornaments on my living room tree are brand new. With the exception of 12 simple white shiny balls, the white tassils and 6 glittery pinecones, every white ornament and antler you see is brand new. The frosted greenery picks are not.
The antler picks were one dollar each and I chalk painted them white. (Hobby lobby 50% sale)
Also from Hobby Lobby I bought large quantities of the same ornaments over and over. To me that's key!
So when they had gorgeous white matte ornaments, I bought 4 boxes of 4. (50% off). Each ornament you see is usually repeated at least 8 or nine times on the tree unless it's a big ornament. I keep those close to the bottom or shoved deep inside the tree.
I did pop some coin for pricey picks too, I bought 3 large champagne colored sprays. (I think after the sale price they were 8 bucks each?) But I cut the sprays up so they weren't so dominating on the tree.
It enabled me to have 9 little cascades at the bottom of my tree instead of 3 big ones. I like it!
I also added a light amount of white mesh and ribbon tied in bows. But not a lot.
So those go on the tree too.
Oh yeah and I bought 3 sets of twinkle lights and shoved those deep inside too. Have you seen the new ones at Target? The ones on tiny little wires?
They are amazing, they have two different kinds, battery operated twinkle ones or plug in ones that don't twinkle.
I took a picture of the battery box, it's tucked inside out of sight. It has a 6 hour timer so after I click it on, it shuts off around 10:30. I love that!
I am in love with that and the price too, I found them half the price then any other store in town.
There are soft purple balls, both big and small on the tree. Clear glass ones too. I had to try and get a couple closeups at night when it's just shines.
Coming up in the next week I will be revealing more Christmas Decor as I get it done.
We'll see! Right now I am just enjoying the tree decorated for Christmas.
Now for the really fun part. Chloe from Celebrate & Decorate has put together a great Holiday Home Tour for us all, so get ready to be inspired below!
