Husbands Says It Looks Like A Wedding Tree

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas.... my tree that is. This year I decorated it in silver, white, crystals and of course bling! I put deco mesh on my tree as garland, along with feathers, beads, and some wintery feeling ornamnets. It sits upon 4 round red gift boxes, and the tree skirt is snow and deco mesh. Now I get it all set up and Hubbs, looks over at me and says it's pretty but it looks like a wedding I am not sure if that's an insult or not. But I think it's gorgeous.

Christmas Mantle

It's that time of year for lights, ornaments and garland to come out and be festive on our mantles, tabletops, doorways. I have changed my decor this year. I went big and grand, no minimalist here this year. I started with a theme and picked three colors to use throughout my house. I started with a mirror, as a backdrop. Then added two snow white arrangements, complete with snow and bling, two reindeers that were remixed to silver. On the mantle I put white garland,clear white lights with deco mesh in silver and red woven through, along with silver ribbon. Adding ornaments, beads, picks, and snowflakes to finish. In front I sit two nutcrackers in white, red and silver, that were also repainted and glittered. It makes a grand statement and makes my fireplace look twice as big. And I love it!
