Denver's had record-breaking low temperatures the past couple of days. I think it is -2 degrees right now. Wow. As I look out of my living room window and see the the frost gathered at the corners and the snow-lined streets beyond, I am sooo happy that I have a Christmas Tree to accessorize the weather. It really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Since we are visiting Matt's parents in Albuquerque for a week over Christmas, we were debating whether we should put up a tree this year. It didn't help that the holiday season snuck up on us in a major way. But...after searching through the basement for wrapping paper I saw all the goodies we bought last year and made an executive decision-we needed to get in the holiday spirit.
We have a red and golden theme with white (only white, thank you very much) lights. When thinking about how to best make our tree "designer" as my husband put it (he's so darn cute), we tried to keep the clutter out and focus on a few elements stars, glitter, bows, etc.
The best part for me is that I was able to personalize it with the following DIY decorations:
I'll be posting my how-to on the tree decor later this week. In the meantime, I'm entering our baby in the Tip Junkie Christmas Tree contest. *Wish me luck*!!
