Hello Friends, and HAPPY WEEKEND! I’m so excited to be joining in with Balsam Hill’s 12 Bloggers of Christmas and sharing our NEW tree. If you are joining me from Erin at the Sunny Side blog, then Welcome, I’m so glad you are here! I loved Erin’s frosted tree from Balsam, and just in case you missed it, you can see it HERE, in her lovely home! I will have links to all the bloggers sharing at the bottom of this post, so be sure to scroll down for lots more inspiration. Now about our new tree!
I’m so excited to share our new Christmas tree with you today. If you’ve seen some of our Christmas tours from past years we had a beautiful flocked tree. This year I am changing things up and went with the most realistic looking faux tree you’ve ever seen! Seriously, she is a beaut!
This is Balsam Hill’s European Fir Tree, it’s new this year to the Balsam Hill collection. I decided since we went with a new tree this year, it only felt right to switch things up and put it in a NEW spot in our living room!
Nestled in between one of our wingback chairs and the half walls that open into our dining room, I put our tree. Honestly it feels so much cozier now in our living room, and I love that I get to curl up in our cozy chair right next to it!
I have to tell you, my favorite are these new ornaments from Balsam Hill’s Essentials Set. Especially the white ones, but I don’t think that’s much a surprise to you!
I mixed in different sizes, Balsam Hill’s white and gold matte and glossy ornaments. They are SO elegant, and I am in love with how it doesn’t take much to make this tree look festive.
Since our new tree is much larger on the bottom, I needed a larger tree skirt. I couldn’t resist this fringed tree skirt from Balsam.
It looks just like linen, and was inspired by those ever popular moroccan wedding blankets, with tons of texture, and tiny little champagne sparkles.
I added some shimmer and sparkle to our tree by using two different types of picks.
These beautiful pearl drop picks compliment the elegant feel of the white and gold ornaments. You can find them at Balsam Hill under tree picks. They are called Winter Pearl Glitter picks, and they are even more stunning in person.
Then I also mixed in some glittered coral tree picks. You guys these are amazing. Every inch of them is made from this high quality wire. Meaning even down to the very tip, I can bend and mold them however I like. I was so impressed by their quality, these are not your average picks!
And even though they are titled as “coral”, they looked like snow flakes to me. Shimmery, shiny snow flakes delicately placed throughout our tree.
I hope you enjoyed the first glimpse’s of Christmas in our living room, and our new tree. I will be sharing more of our living room this week, and can’t wait for you to see.
