2023 Family Christmas Tree Reveal

I am excited to share our 2023 family tree with you all! Typically, I don’t share our family ornament tree on the blog as there isn’t as much detail that goes into this one. I save a majority of the room on this tree for all of our family’s ornaments from throughout the years. It has always been a tradition of mine to get the kiddos a new ornament each year. Also, if we travel somewhere special we like to bring home an ornament as a souvenir for our tree. Pretty soon, I am going to need a bigger tree just to be able to put all of the ornaments on! Let me tell ya…they are adding up! It makes me happy to see all of the ornaments up on the tree and it is so fun watching the kids hang them year after year. However, the more ornaments also means the kids are getting older and growing up too fast on me! I’m sure a lot of you can relate! With that, I just try to live in the moment and enjoy each and everyday with them!

I start this tree off just like I do all of my other trees I decorate. I used a neutral colored deco mesh for this tree. You can see exactly how I do this step RIGHT HERE!

Next, I add in my picks throughout my tree. I found these fun picks at Walmart and thought they were perfect for our family tree!

How fun are these bright colors!? I can’t wait to craft with these gorgeous pine cones!

Next up is the ornaments! Each year when picking out the kids’ ornaments I like to find something that resonates with each of them. It’s so fun to look back over the years at all of their ornaments! Such a fun tradition I hope they will carry on with their kiddos! If not, Grandma to the rescue! HaHa!

I hope you all have a blessed Christmas!

2021 Navy Themed Christmas Tree

Navy | Christmas Tree | Snowman

Happy holidays!!! I am so excited to share with you my Christmas tree for this year! I went away from the traditional red and green theme and decided to go with a navy theme! I absolutely love how it turned out! As soon as I got the deco mesh on, I knew it I loved it!

Typically, we buy a real tree so I am not able to put our tree up as early as I would like…but this year I decided to try something different! I happened to be looking through the Black Friday deals at Wal-mart and found this beautiful tree for ONLY $69. So, I bit the bullet and bought an artificial, flocked tree. It took my family awhile to get used to it as we have always had the real tree and the awesome Christmas smell that goes along with that but they adjusted well!

I knew I wanted to have some navy accents in my holiday decor this year so when I found this mesh at Hobby Lobby I grabbed a couple rolls. I only used one roll on my tree as I only decorated the front side but if you were to decorate the full tree you would need two.

To apply the mesh, I simply folded the mesh in half and used the branches of the tree to secure the mesh as shown. I did this about every 12 inches starting at the top.

Next, I strung some garland on the tree. This also came from Hobby Lobby. It has bells and the faux cotton pods on jute twine. After that I began filling in the tree with ornaments and picks. These all came from Wal-mart and Hobby Lobby.

I found a 4 pack of the navy, oversized, colored ball ornaments at Hobby Lobby and new they would go perfectly with the mesh I used. I simply placed them throughout the tree where there was a bare spot and they finished off the look perfectly!

Now for the tree topper! Is this not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen! I knew I had to have this as soon as I saw it at Wal-mart! It’s not your traditional tree topper and that is exactly why I love it so much!
