I love decorating for the holidays! This year, I was on the hunt for a new Christmas tree. So, while I was in town visiting family a few weeks ago, we stopped by the happiest place on earth… Bronners.
Located in Frankenmuth Michigan, Bronners is “The World’s Largest Christmas Store!” Seriously, they have everything that your holiday loving heart could want. I found a gorgeous 7.5ft tall tree with white lights. It is perfect! I also maaaay have went a little crazy picking up beautiful baubles and personalized ornaments!
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I was so excited to start decorating. I actually decorated my tree on Thanksgiving evening!
I even pulled out my Olivia Pope wine glass and some Christmas tunes to get me in the spirit!
In previous years, I have always used multi colored lights and an assortment of sentimental and meaningful ornaments. This year, I wanted to do something different and try a color scheme! I decided to go with silver, gold, and hints of blue. Then, I used a cozy, fuzzy blanket that I picked up from Target as my tree skirt this year. I love the texture that it adds and how pretty it looks draped below the tree.
I even got a personalized ornament with my home’s name “Morning Joy” and the year to celebrate the accomplishment of purchasing my own home. I also picked up a beautiful ornament for my dad, who we will all miss very much this holiday season.
This “Noel” ornament is my favorite one on my mom’s tree. This year, I had to pick one up for myself! It is so beautiful with little gold rivers swirling around, a delicate ribbon, and the whole thing is actually a working jingle bell!
I really love how it all turned out!
Gosh, Daisy is so stinking cute!!
I have quite a few more plain gold/silver/blue ornaments that I could add to fill things out, but I sort of love how the unique ornaments really stand out!
Is your tree up already? Do you stick with a color scheme or use an assortment of sentimental ornaments? Should I add more to mine or leave it as it is?
