Happy new week friends!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
I am extremely honored to be joining some very talented friends
in the 12 Bloggers of Christmas, brought to you by Balsam Hill.
This week, we will be sharing beautiful Balsam Hill trees and hopefully
provide some inspiration for you to consider when decorating your own trees.
So without further adieu, this is my Balsam Hill Norway Spruce.
Since sharing it on FB, I have been asked if it’s a real tree several
times, which I admittedly question myself each time I walk past it.
It arrived beautifully packaged and even had fancy gloves for fluffing.
I truly believe decorating your home for Christmas doesn’t
necessarily have to cost you a lot of money, so my tree
is filled with natural elements, such as pine cones from family
walks, handmade ornaments and foraged grape vines.
Little handmade nests I had made this Easter and this little
birdie our daughter bought for me look perfect perched in our tree.
These sugar pine cones I purchased a couple years ago look
so beautiful paired with the Balsam Hill glitter pine cones.
One of my favorite tips that I like to use to make an artificial tree look
very full, is to insert some real branches in between the gaps. They
not only provide fill, but also add that familiar pine scent to the room.
And of course, never be afraid to combine the new with the old.
I just love how you can’t really tell the real from the artificial?
Including handmade elements always adds a nostalgic feeling to
our home. You can find the tutorial for this little reindeer here.
I love the natural elements with the browns and greens.
There’s something so magical about the glow of a Christmas tree…
…and especially by the flickering light of a roaring fire.
