O Christmas Tree….

I have a confession…. I am a TERRIBLE Christmas tree decorator.
 
It’s awful, I am so embarrassed to say it, but it’s true. However, this year I have vowed to become better! I took a trip to places that had gorgeously decorated trees: The Bay, Sheridan Nursery, Van Belle’s etc…. After looking at all them I realized that you really need to fill the tree. Fill the holes with flowers, sparkly branches and leaves – and use lots of lights!!!
 
As you saw in my last post Adam & I went with our family to chop down a real tree this year! Although the tree seemed perfect at the farm – once we got it home it was a LITTLE big, and didn’t fit in the spot I had envisioned. So right off the bat, we were not off to a good start. But we made room behind the sectional for it, and now atleast it won’t be in the way when I have Christmas dinner at my house.
 
Here are some photos that I used for inspiration:

I got ornaments this year from all over the place. The Bay, Crate & Barrel, Homesense, Canadian Tire, my mom, as wedding gifts and of course ones that I have gotten over the last few years we have lived together. I really want to have meaningful and important things on my tree. My main ornaments have to do with birdies 🙂 of course (birds, bird houses, nests etc)… but I also have skates, a lucky pickle and then just beautiful white, gold & silver pieces.

It’s still not great…. But I feel like I am making progress!! 🙂
