~~~O Tannenbaum!!!~~~

 Hello everyone and merry Christmas season!!!! It is so hard to believe it is coming so fast! I spent Sunday and today Christmas shopping and got some great deals and had ALOT of fun! I love finding what I feel is the perfect gift. I wanted to share our Christmas tree!!! We have it in the morning room, that is the only spot it would fit:):) The ceiling in here is peaked so it fits well here and I love that I can see it from the hall, the living room and the kitchen.  The skirt is a velvet center with an embroidered edge. I have done this red and gold theme for several years. I have too much invested to change it!

 The poinsettia ornaments were found at LOWES!!!
 I LOVE bling and these ornaments are full of bling!
 Here are some tips for decorating your tree. I use long sparkly branches resting on the tree branches. You just kind of push them in and they fill in the spaces wonderfully. I have a combination of red and gold branches on the tree.
 Here is one type of the gold branches.
 I also have several styles of crystal (faux) hanging pieces.


 I love these stars.
 The "crystals" just sparkle in the sunlight. We haven't had any sun in days so these are not the best pictures and I apologize.
 These are cut out.
 This is my favorite ornament, I think.


 My topper is 2 large bows attached at the front and the back. Then a variety of sticks are inserted into the top of the tree. I actually keep the topper decorated when I take the tree down. I put tissue paper into the loops of the bows to keep them nice.
 My view from the kitchen. We put the table on an angle to accomodate the tree and I like it!

 The green ornament is one of 3 that I have that my Mom made MANY years ago.


I hope you have enjoyed seeing my tree. I appreciate every visit and read every comment and try to respond. XO, Pinky

Pinky, that is such a wonderful looking tree. So large and sparkly! Love the red and gold. Your topper really takes the cake, and makes my star on top a big small and uninspired. Love it that your tree is so close to your table. Joni

Your tree is gorgeous, Pinky. I love the colors and where you placed it. Perfection!

My camera is a Canon Rebel T2i. I used a 50mm lens for the pictures on the blog today. I didn't take any lessons. I did research and I continue to practice whenever possible. Today, the light was perfect in the kitchen and I decided to practice. Had no idea what kind of pics I would get. I used Photoscape to edit them a tad. I never hesitate to edit.:-)

Dolores said...

Oh Pinky, your home, tree and decorations are gorgeous!!
What a job it must have been to set up the tree and get it decorated.
I love your morning room.... a happy room!
Hugs,
