Well, we did it! After lots of shopping to coordinate the tree to our new ornaments from Frontgate (the Medici collection), our live Christmas tree is up and decorated! (You may remember THIS post). We've never had a real tree before and of course, we had to get the biggest we could find! It's about 10-11 feet tall (so we needed a ladder) and it's 7 feet wide. As Husband said after we finally got it up "Little full, lots of sap." (From National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation). I even freaked Lallie out a bit as I stood on the ladder shaking and yelling "SQUIRREL!!!" She didn't like it too much.
Anyways, here are some pictures! The ornaments are absolutely stunning (pictures don't do them justice) and plenty to cover the tree. We will be enjoying these ornaments for years to come! We purchased several sprays of leaves, flowers and berries in red and gold colors and I'm working on a big bow for the top of the tree, right underneath the tall wheat sprays.
I'll be sure to post more pictures once the bow is on and the rest of the house is decorated.
Happy Friday Y'all!
