…oh, Christmas tree…how lovely are your branches…
Except this year, for the first time in my whole life, I decorated fake trees!
You might recall that my house has gotten zero Christmas love this year because of our impending move (4 days to go!). But I was brought on board to decorate a house on my town’s Holiday House Tour this year, so I’m sharing Christmas projects and vignettes I used there. The owner of the house had two great-quality fake trees and since I started decorating in early November, we decided fake trees were the way to go so we wouldn’t have a couple of tree corpses by the time the tour date came around.
I have a pretty simple style when it comes to Christmas tress, and these tress were no exception. The larger of the two trees went in the family room, tucked into a corner behind the sofa.
I decorated this tree very simply, with miniature gold and silver balls, and black and white striped ribbon.
I added a few gifts under this tree too, and set my favorite rehabbed thrifted piece ever – a barrel-back cane chair – next to it. You wouldn’t believe what this chair looked like when I found it.
Make sure you check back tomorrow when I will finally give you the full details on this house and how I decorated it for Christmas. Can’t wait to share it with you!
