Nothing says Christmas like the cozy glow of a Christmas tree! While we love to fill the house with all things Christmas, decorating the tree with all the trimmings is one of our most treasured holiday traditions each year. Yesterday, I shared some of my favourite artificial trees and today, I thought it would be fun to dive into some of the trimmings that really make them shine!
We’ve been decorating not one, but two trees for the last few years – the tree in our main living room is a little more polished and intentionally put together, while our second tree is much more nostalgic, filled with all of the special ornaments we’ve collected through the years. I love that we have the opportunity to try out two different looks each year – I get to flex my decorating muscles with our main tree, while Carson has all the say with our family room tree.
Here’s a little look back at our Christmas trees past…
And our nostalgic family room tree, filled with all of all of our most treasured ornaments – each and every one that Carson has ever made, all of the ornaments he’s collected over the years (we gift him one every Christmas Eve – read more about our Night Before Christmas Box tradition here), the ones Brady and I purchased when we first moved in together, some that we used as children ourselves growing up and even a very special collection that belonged to my Gram. It’s definitely a very special tree each year and always my favourite to decorate (you can see more of our family room tree here).
Whether you’re decorating a more planned out & polished tree, or more of a nostalgic tree filled with memories and tradition, hopefully you’ll find some beautiful new trimmings to add to the mix in today’s post!
