It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Yep, over the long Thanksgiving weekend we put up our Christmas tree. Come take a look…
Since the fireplace mantel makeover that I showed you yesterday has a lot of red in it, I decided to carry the color scheme into our Christmas tree.
This year I was lucky enough to have an eager helper to hang the ornaments.
Some of my favorites:
1. My trolley car ornament in Chinatown from my summer work trip to San Francisco.
2. And since I like to have an ornament from each vacation, I grabbed one from our weekend getaway to Trout Lodge in Missouri.
3. And we grab an ornament to follow my daughter’s extra-curricular activities. Last year was a ballerina; this year we’ll have to find a soccer player!
4. And of course every year I purchase a little family ornament. It’s a tradition that my mom started when we were young and I love it!
The kiddo was quite proud of her masterpiece… although the tree seemed to be getting bottom heavy quite quickly. Her little arms could only reach so high…
I still need to find a new tree skirt, but I might just wait until the after the holidays to steal something on clearance. I have to say, I was a little nervous about all of the bright red, but I’m kinda diggin’ it now!
So, do you have your Christmas tree up yet?
And is it real or artificial?
