Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, you grew into a big tree. Yes, my tabletop tree grew up into a big tree and I love it. Thank you to Tree Classics for sponsoring this tour and sending me a big girl tree and thank you to Amy of Maison Decor for putting this tour together. I liked the simplicity of the smaller tree, but this one is awfully pretty to gaze upon especially at night so that is why I'm sharing the night shot first.
I'm am joining four other lovely ladies today so be sure to click on the links at the end of the post.
I knew I wanted to try the tree by the fireplace so we changed the furniture arrangement. I thought the change would be temporary, but Mr. Savvy thinks the space feels cozier so it may stay this way. I just have to bring the chair back in that is residing in the master bedroom for now.
Tree Classics provided all the new ornaments which are silver, gold and a few white ones. I'm really not a glam dress up kind of girl, give me jeans and a tee or sweater, so I toned the glam of the tree down a bit by adding some feathered friends and pheasant feathers.
There is even a gold sparkly tree skirt go go with the ornaments.
I found some cute silver and gold wrapping paper and am storing it in the crock until I have some gifts to wrap since I have not bought one single thing yet.
I believe I found these at Marshalls while we were out of town.
I didn't do a lot to the mantel this year. The tree is the main focus in here so I kept the mantel very simple. I placed my carolers on the mantel with a few sprigs of green.
I also didn't want to have to drag out the old Christmas stuff that is stored under our stairwell. We have to take all the coats out of the coat closet and put them on the floor in the dining room so they are out of the way. Then pull out anything on the floor and open up the back wall and duck down and drag out more boxes and hit my head numerous times because I forget how small the opening is. I'm glad my favorite things were stored in bins out in our storage room last year so that is what I used this year. Rooms will not be overly decorated this year since we are still working on the kitchen. It's almost finished! So when I say simple this year it really is simple.
I placed some nuts on a majolica plate next to Mr. Savvy's chair in remembrance of my dad. We always had nuts sitting out at the holidays and he would crack them and eat away. Now, I just need to find my nutcracker.
Miss Bailey was sitting at the top of the stairs so I went up to pet her. Then I snapped this with my phone. My tree is the Majestic Blue Spruce. It was very easy to assemble and I did it all by myself.
I'll share the new furniture arrangement with y'all soon, but for now you need to check out my friends trees in the links below.
Have an awesome week and watch for more Christmas posts. I still have decorating to do.
Thanks for all the comment love for the cabin themed guest room yesterday.
