Like in previous years, I take one item as my inspiration piece and use it as my primary color or theme for Christmas decorating, I’ve incorporated shades of blue, touches of white, as well as lots of pretty silver mercury glass ornaments into my tree’s color scheme — and kept everything else simple with lots of greenery. It’s incredibly realistic, as long as you put the effort into fluffing and shaping it correctly. Like I previously mentioned, the tree is filled with silver mercury glass ornaments. Mercury glass ornaments can be really expensive if you want to fill an entire tree with them like I did. The largest width ribbon is woven throughout the tree, while the thinner velvet strips hang from individual branches.
A wooden bead garland finishes the look off and ties in the other wood tones in the living room. I love to match wrapping paper and ribbons to my Christmas tree for a cohesive look. Target is my favorite place for pretty wrapping paper and ribbon during the Christmas season, but craft stores and Etsy are great sources too.
In recent years, I’ve ditched the tree skirt in favor of a basket. This year, I’m using a large woven basket that I bought at HomeGoods and plopped my tree stand in! If you plan to do the same, remember to measure the width of your tree stand to ensure that it will fit in the basket!
I love this view of my living room when you enter from the front door. You can see exactly how the blue throw pillows tie wonderfully into the Christmas decor.
They are my “decor” stockings – the kids actually use the cute Pottery Barn ones with their names on them that come out on Christmas Eve.
If you have a kitchen island, it would look beautiful and be easy to move aside or pop on the counter to get out of the way when needed.
from Target that I added lights and faux eucalyptus to (the same stuff I have in my living room, it looks so real! I’m particularly loving the simplicity of this year’s which is filled with evergreens and has a pretty blue bow and bells.
