Dressing Our Tree

Hello Everyone!

Dressing our Christmas tree is a tradition I look forward to every year. I love unpacking each ornament & string of lights & reflecting on doing this exact same thing in years past. This ritual is truly what gets me in the Christmas spirit.

Our Christmas ornaments are predominately red & gold, & of course, I love anything that sparkles! It’s good to mix it up with different sizes & shapes to add some dimension. Some of my favorites are my big gold sparkly snowflakes & my metallic pinecones. They give our tree a more whimsical vibe, which I love.

Once I have a clear base of ornaments filling our tree, the fun part really begins. Now it’s time to dress up the tree with some individual touches to make our tree unique.

Initial ornaments are always a fun place to start. Whether it’s your first initial or for your last name, they instantly place your signature on your Christmas centerpiece. We love finding quirky ones that mean something to us as well: like a lobster for Ben’s home state of Maine, a pink sparkly sailboat from our first Christmas together in the Bahamas, a ballerina kitty…because…duh, & a couple of special pieces from Africa.

Next on my list are a couple of gorgeous pieces to commemorate our trip to Paris. It was so magical & I’m just dying to return. I think a cute Parisian ornament or two would look just lovely on our tree.

Lastly, I l-o-v-e garlands. Any occasion deserves a good garland in my book. I’m really wanting to purchase a garland like this one or this one to wrap around our tree. I think it would finish off the decor beautifully.
