Our Christmas Tree

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas is my favorite holiday and I love decorating for it as soon as I can get around to it! This year with just having had a baby my husband helped me get it all down and decorated with me so that we could actually get it done by December 1!

One of our traditions when we travel is to pick up an ornament from each place we go! The wine barrel is from our trip to Napa, the Canadian flag is a memory from our honeymoon where we visited Whistler and Victoria, and the Portland Oregon one is pretty self explanatory!

I spent a couple months when I first was buying our tree looking for the perfect tree skirt… I knew exactly what I was wanting but couldn’t find it anywhere and when I did find one similar they were a fortune. What I did here is I found a blanket at Target that was the right color and texture and I just bunched it around the bottom of the tree to make it look like a tree skirt! I love the way it turned out!

    I have been shopping for a tree skirt and they’re SO EXPENSIVE! I love the idea of bunching up a blanket. Sounds like another good reason to go to Target lol
