For today’s post, I thought I would give you a little insight into my Christmas Tree! My family has always been one that believe the simpler the better when it comes to our tree. We usually do white lights, garland (red or silver), and a few ornaments. We don’t go all out, instead letting the tree speak for itself.
This year, we used the fake tree that we bought on Christmas Eve last year-the dogs knocked the real one over 4 times that day and all the needles were gone…-because the needles. I much prefer real trees, but I also don’t like cleaning up the tree so I don’t mind the fake ones. It is about 6 feet tall, and is strung with soft white lights.
For decorations, we have red garland, and red bows. Again, we weren’t sure how the dogs would do with the glass balls, so we figured we’d put it off one more year. I think it is super simple, and elegant!
Growing up, we had a beautiful angel as out topper, and we would sometimes alternate this with a star. One year, the star broke, so that didn’t work. The next year, the angel broke, and in a pinch, my brother and I decided to toss a Santa hat on the top. That was over 10 years ago, and we haven’t had a different topper since. It is so cute, and definitely breaks from the traditional.
