There’s something so magical to me about the warm glow of a Christmas tree – it’s soothing, comforting, and peaceful.
I love the way the lights twinkle and shine off the ornaments.
My family decorates the tree together every year, but I can never have the tree up as early as I’d like for fear that it will be completely dead by Christmas and a fire hazard. No matter how hard I try to remember to water the tree, it only lasts about two weeks before it starts to dry out.
It all started when I spotted the Balsam Hill Carolina Hemlock.
The tree has lots of space for big ornaments, sturdy branches, and easy-peasy setup. Now, not only could I put the tree up earlier than usual, but this tree is all mine, decorated just the way I want. A little bit vintage, a little bit feminine, and all me…
Vintage gold, silver, and white adorn my tree this year.
And my love of decorating with books applies even to my Christmas tree, with books nestled in among the presents underneath….
…and framed pages added to the ornaments.
Small touches of Tiffany blue accent the tree…
…and the surrounding room.
I had so much fun planning and decorating my very own tree this year.
And at night, the warm glow of the lights reminds me of sleeping underneath the tree when I was little.
