Our Christmas Tree

Welcome to the My Home Style Blog Hop.
If you are coming from Jeweled Interiors, welcome!
If you are new here, I am excited to have you, and I hope you follow along. 
At the end of this post you will see the next person on the blog hop, so please read through all the way to the end. 

I hope our tree inspires you when you are decorating your own tree this year.
It's very simple, and it's a very easily achievable look.

Decorating our Christmas tree is one of my favorite things to do to kick off the holiday season.
Typically I set up a huge tree with white lights and deck it out in family ornaments. 
But this year I went simple. Clean, simple, and fresh was was the goal for our tree this year.

Here is how I achieved that look.

I used a flocked tree this year. This is a smaller tree that I usually use in our bedroom. This year with our new living room furniture, I thought the scale was much better, and doesn't look so cramped.

Real trees can be so expensive now. And I always decorate early in the season, so a faux tree just 
makes sense for us. 

I like to add these to the tree.  No one will ever know it is fake with them! 

To add height to the tree I placed it on a wooden box inside of this barrel. 

I like to add double the white lights, so even if your tree comes pre-lit, add twice as many!
Make sure you get lights with green wire so it blends in.

I used a vintage tree topper this year, made with pipe cleaners in the shape of a snowflake.

Next up is the super fun Ariel from PMQ for two!

Always my favorite. Love it and so excited to see a little blush in your design this year. I had planned a similar palette and it is fun to get ideas.
