It’s officially December!!!!! Ahhhh it’s the best time of the year 🎶 I woke up super excited about today because not only is it Saturday but we can officially countdown until Christmas! Ever since I started dating my husband, we decided that we would get a live tree because it makes the house smell so good. So it’s been 4 consecutive years that we’ve had a live tree but this year we decided to change it up a bit and purchased an artificial tree. We didn’t want Sofia to eat any of the pine needles or find little bugs from the tree. Not sure if they actually have bugs but one time I read an article about what’s really in the Christmas trees and I remember bugs being a term and I freaked! So I told my husband that I was a little nervous about a live tree around Sofia now that she’s walking and grabs EVERYTHING from the floor.
So we went to Michael’s and instantly found a good tree for our home. It’s 7.5 feet long and once the branches are flocked it looks pretty alive to me! I was pretty happy with the way it turned out. I also found my tree skirt from Michaels. Some ornaments we had purchased last year from Target and some my husband already had, but I wanted to change it up a tad bit. I went with a “rustic-glam” look if that’s even a thing Lol! I made it up but I was on Pinterest and found some inspiration photos and also thought about the color scheme of our home because I wanted it to match. At Hobby Lobby I found some burlap deco mesh, white linen ribbon, adorable little woodland animals, snowy pine cones, and white embellished ornaments. We definitely enjoy the whole experience of picking a tree and decorating it. So if you’re like me and need some inspiration I thought I’d share my experience with you 💕
I’ve also linked my outfit and similar items for the Christmas tree. Let me know if you’ve already set up your Christmas tree and what theme did you pick!?
