Feminine Farmhouse Christmas

Hey friends! If you checked out my post from last week, you got a little peek of my office decorated for Christmas! Well, today I get to share more of a reveal with you! I absolutely LOVE decorating for Christmas!! I am a firm believer you should have multiple Christmas trees in your home! This year we have three large ones on each floor and I’m also considering putting one in our master bedroom (but shh.. don’t tell my husband that part!) 😉

I have decided to do something I haven’t done before.. I usually decorate and incorporate red into my Christmas design each year, but this year I didn’t! But who’s to say I still won’t 😉 I had fun decorating my office because I was able to be a little more feminine and use textures and patterns I really like, opposed to our family tree in the living room.

I put my 6 ft. pre-lit tree I bought from Target in my ceramic antique tub and it fit perfectly cornered behind my couch! I used very simple things as ornaments so I wouldn’t have to go out and buy all new ones. I used rolled up book pages and folded them in half to give an accordion look and placed them throughout the tree. I also took metallic chalkboard gift tags I snagged from Target dollar spot last year, and wrote things that mean the most to me (family, love, joy, etc.). I also added small strands of crystals and just hung them from the branches. They are absolutely beautiful when the light hits them!! You can see the cute little picture frame ornaments I made, that are perfect for this tree! I also love the large overly-glittered cardboard letters that say “Merry Christmas”, simply drooped across the tree!

This is a fun little mix to farmhouse chic design! I’ve always had a thing for polka dots, black & white and leopard! I feel like this flawlessly incorporates them all <3

Little Drummer Boy- Inspired Christmas

This year, I teamed up with Treetopia to create a one-of-a-kind little drummer boy- inspired Christmas tree! To some, I may decorate too early, but for me I just get to enjoy it longer! Being a home decor blogger, doesn’t help much either 😉 It’s kind of like retail, you have to stay ahead of the game! Decorating early comes with the territory.

One of my very favorite things about decorating the Christmas tree each year, is gathering the inspiration for that specific tree. I wanted my tree to be simple, yet beautiful and I have to say, I think I accomplished just that! The tree I chose this year for my office, was the Alexander Fir Christmas Tree 7.5’ Clear. It’s full branches and perfectly placed white lights are magical!

I always begin by placing my statement pieces or ornaments first. I’ve found that going in a pattern works best and makes the tree have some symmetry. So in this case, I added the gemmed up beaded ornaments first, alternating the gold and bronze. These ornaments are so unique and catch the light beautifully! I wasn’t quite sure at first, how I was going to capture the theme of the little drummer boy. Then, I thought something as simple as, little drummer boy silhouettes would immediately set the tone. I found these free silhouettes here. To continue with that theme, I printed off the sheet music of the hymn, here. These were simply the best touches of the tree!

Next I went through and added some simple picture frame ornaments, mercury glass balls and sprigs here and there for texture. The simplicity of this design is captivating to me! It truly is simple and allows me to enjoy the beauty of the tree and white lights!

Speaking of white, I went outside my comfort zone a little and opted for a white garland. When I first opened the package I was a little nervous I wouldn’t be able to incorporate it into my design. But, this just goes to show sometimes stepping out of your comfort zone is necessary, even if it’s just decorating for Christmas 😉 Had the garland been the traditional green, I think it would of been too much and completely taken away from the tree. I draped the glittering white garland with a frosted eucalyptus garland I previously had and it was the perfect touch!

The beautiful sadie Fir wreath fit like a glove on my beloved silhouette stand. To tie in with the design, I simply tied a piece of satin white ribbon around the waste. What a big difference that little detail made! At a routine stop at Marshall’s, I spotted sheet music wrapping paper. That was the icing on the cake, if you will, to the little drummer boy Christmas tree!

It was a true treat to be apart of the Treetopia Design Council this year! Make sure to stop by and check out all the other amazing Christmas designs!

I wish I could capture the gorgeous, steady snowfall outside right now! It makes this pink, chic design that much more fun! I know most people think I’m crazy, but I love snow in the month of December! It makes this time of the year, all that more magical! Plus, I celebrate my birthday mid month and always wish for a white Christmas!

I was really excited to decorate my office tree with pink, white and gold this year! It’s just the right touch of shabby chic and feminine and I’m totally loving how it all looks together! What girly-girl doesn’t want a tree to match with her style!

Since I can remember, I’ve also always been in love with animal print, so my beautiful pillow case and funky animal print bag dress this design up even more! Not to mention, my super comfy large faux fur rug, makes this space ready for a little snuggling!

I’m wishing you a very Merry Christmas friends. <3

Pretty in pink Christmas

Hey friend! I have been sharing little peeks of my office pretty in pink Christmas tree for a couple weeks now. Today I’m sharing all the details!

It is one of my favorites! It is simple, feminine, pink, sparkly & allll the feels. The tree is a 6.5 foot black & gold ombre tree. It has been such a fun tree to decorate because it is so multi-functional.

I started off with some easy DIY ornaments I made years ago using small inexpensive store frames & adding scripture print in them. Check out the tutorial HERE. Next, I began adding in glittery ornaments & mercury glass balls in silver & white. I absolutely love working with pinks, champagnes & all the neutrals! It truly makes for a stunning combination!

Time for fillers! I used glittery stems, glittered eucalyptus, white eucalyptus, glittery ferns & such. Fillers bring your tree to life & give it so much character! I love using big, whimsy stems that droop & hang. My favorite touch to this pretty in pink Christmas tree design, is the velvet poinsettias I snagged from Hobby Lobby for half off!

It is truly the perfect addition to my office! I love looking at it & hope to keep it up for awhile! Even after the new year!

Thank you so much for stopping by & I hope to see you back here again soon!
