In addition to our first tree together as a married couple - it's also not only my, but also my husband's first time ever having a tree of our own. We of course have had family trees with our parents but in our own home - it's a first so it's a pretty special holiday for us.
Given this, I decided to make decorating an event. So...off to the craft store we went for supplies to make our own ornaments, silver balls, lights, magnolia flowers & starfish.
For the hommeade ornaments we purchased plastic balls and filled them with a variety of items including:
Sand & Shells
White Feathers & Sparkles
Silver foil leaves
In total, all the decor cost about $100 - and took us about 2 hours from start to finish. That of course plus the time to go to the Christmas Tree Farm to cut down our tree and set it up - which you can see here.
We enjoyed a few glasses of champs & some holiday music while we decorated and have decided it's a new tradition. Here is the finished product...
How do you decorate your tree?
