The tree is trimmed! Here it is cheering up our living room in all its glow-y heart warming beauty!

I mixed all of our old ornaments with a few boxes of new designs and I love the way it turned out. Here’s a closer look at the ornaments I used.

I started with the above silver ornaments that I picked up at Target this year to fill in such a big tree. This is the biggest Christmas tree we’ve ever had so I knew I needed some extra ornaments, but I didn’t want to break the bank. I got 12 large ornaments in this pack for $15 and they nicely filled in a few holes in the tree. I layered on the white ornaments next followed by the green and finally the red. Putting the entirety of each color on at time helps me evenly distribute them throughout the tree for a more balanced look. Last and most importantly I added our more ornate and meaningful ornaments like the angel that Mike’s grandmother gave him during their last Christmas together, and the lovey dovey snowman couple that we got for our first married Christmas – complete with our wedding date. Here’s the final product!

There it is! I love how it glows like this at night. I’ve become quite the Christmas sap since marrying Mike. He’s helped me see Christmas in a whole new way and appreciate little things like a cheerful tree much more than I used to. If you celebrate Christmas, do you have your tree up yet? What’s your favorite ornament?

  1. Brie…..Gorgeous tree, love the sentimental ornaments that Mike showed on your Vlog. I lost all of mine this summer when Toronto had this terrible flood and our basement was flooded with sewage water so everything had to be thrown out.
    All your bulbs are very pretty and I love those Red Cardinals…because in the summer we have lots feeding on our Crab-apple trees that we have in the backtyard…it’s like a buffet for them.
    Take care….
