I'm home in California to spend the next few weeks with my family and I couldn't be happier. I love being home for the holidays! Once the tree is up, it starts feeling real. So the Christmas tree went up yesterday and we love it!
There's just something about a flocked tree that I totally love. I know those of you who live in a state with snow must find this the weirdest thing ever, but we adore it. (I told some friends in Michigan we were flocking our tree, and they didn't even know what "flocking" meant! Ha!) Here in California, we don't get snow, so it's fun to have a light dusting on our tree :) Bonus! It also helps keep the branches on the tree, instead of sweeping dead needles every day.
This year, we decided to put a pretty, subtle gold ribbon around the tree. We went with light and dark blue ball ornaments, silver and gold glittered ornaments, a few ornaments with touches of red to give the tree some "pop" and lots of old, sentimental ornaments. I love how it turned out!
This one is a favorite :)
One of my old ornaments from when I was younger and taking ballet class!
The reflection of the tree in our dining room mirrors is beautiful!
Santa has been busy, so packages are starting to make their way under the tree.
Have you decorated your tree yet?! Leave a link to it in the comments for me to see!
