Our 1st Christmas >>> Featuring: Our Tree!!!

Friday, December 9, 2011

Wow, it's been a while since I've been back and boy it does it feel good! =) I missed ya'll! Since my last post back in June, there has been so much goin' on in our lives... IE: Our home is no longer under construction! YAY! It is now complete... well, almost... now we are filling up the rooms, slowly but definitely surely! I am one happy camper =)

On another note which may be the biggest contributor on me coming back is that it is CHRISTMAS! My most absolute favorite time of the year. Truth be told, I think I'm a little crazy about it. One would ask themselves, "Why would Jaryce be so crazy about a holiday?" and my answer to you would be, "Well, all my life I have been the Christmas elf. I've helped pretty much everyone in my family decorate their trees as well as decking their house out with holiday cheer. Come to think about it, I can't recall a year where I haven't decorated at least 3-4 houses dueing the holiday season. Through the years of decorating others homes, I have been able to make mental notes of what I would want and what I don't want. I've pretty much been imagining how my home would be on it's first Christmas and I am ecstatic to finally dress it up in everything I hoped it would be.

But in order to make my dream a reality, I started shopping for decor a few years back. No, I did not have a tree to decorate nor did I have a house to fill up, but I did know that one day, I will have a home and it will be ready for the holidays. And when that time comes, it will be nothing short of spectacular.

So for the last 3 years, I did major "after the holiday" sale shopping and am excited to finally display my treasures! =)

So, without further ado, I present, our 1st CHRISTmas Tree!

All warm and toasty... {below}

Upclose & Personal

To dress up a simple topiary, alls ya gotta do is add lights and poinsettias and BAM.... gorg!!

For me, vintage ornaments gives trees that sense of comfort, that homey feeling, that little warmness we all love to feel... especially, when they are passed down from someone near and dear to your heart.... like a grandmother ♥ {below}

I went with a color scheme of gold... typically, when decorating within a certain color, I like to give it more depth by using all different shades of that color. In this instance... golds, champagnes, taupes and other colors of the same palette such as browns and bronzes give this tree the perfect glow without being overbearing with GOLD.

The key to my heart, which Mr. Everything holds!

Dripping crystals make me smile =)

This is EXACTLY what I was looking for when shopping for a tree skirt.

1. The color cream to soften the overall look
2. The crystals to shine when reflecting from the lights. {{There's nothing like a little bling}}

3. And the faux fur to give it the glam that this tree is SCREAMING!

Some ideas I've been pondering...
1. Possibly adding some copper swag throughout the tree
2. Adding bunched up pointsettias in browns, golds and creams to act as a tree topper

3. Giving the tree more texture by adding twigs sticking out

Welp, there ya have it. Our 1st Christmas Tree! =)
