I just love Christmas, everything is sparkly and pretty, from decorating the Christmas tree, drinking cocoa and watching Holiday movies and more, I love it all. In our home once, the tree is up and decorated, it really starts to feel like Christmas. Last year was our first Christmas back in our home and it was made extra special, when I won a Christmas Tree from Treetopia. I loved our Oh Christmas tree, we choose last year. The needles were so realistic and I love that it came pre-lit, you can see our fully decorated Christmas tree from last year here. I love the look of Traditional Christmas trees, but this year I really wanted a flocked Christmas tree. I've always loved the look of flocked trees, they're just so beautiful, snowy and feel magical. This year, I was asked to be apart of the Treetopia Design Council, and received a Christmas Tree and wreath of my choice.
I choose the Frosty Flocked Christmas tree and couldn't wait for it to arrive! Our new Christmas tree arrived super fast, and its so pretty and looks like it came fresh from the snow. Going forward, I'm sure each year we'll switch back and forth between our Oh Christmas Tree and our Frosty Flocked Christmas tree, I love both trees so very much.
We decided to put the tree up in a corner of our living room, we worked in one section of the tree at a time fluffy each branch. Setting up the tree was a little messy, since the tree is flocked. Once the tree is up, the little extra time spent vacuuming is sooo worth it.
One of the things, I love to do while decorating the tree is turning on Christmas music or playing a classic holiday movie and drinking hot cocoa. Those little traditions, help create memories with my family. Decorating our tree is a family affair, my husband and I love hanging a few ornaments, and then just enjoy watching our kids finish hanging all the ornaments. Tabari gave Avery a little boost while decorating the tree, love their teamwork. I just love my boys.
My biggest splurge each year on Christmas is changing our ornaments colors. Last year we went with a colorful tree and this year I took a cue from our home decor and went with shades chartreuse and green bulbs and mixed in gold. Here's our tree all lit up, I love the soft glow the white lights give our living room.
To keep decorating our Christmas tree stress free, we use unbreakable plastic ornaments, that still look like glass. I love using simple round ball ornaments with a few other ornaments mixed in, like glitter star bursts and snowflakes. They add that extra sparkle among the bulbs.
