Hello everyone! Welcome to Blogmas Day 4! Today I’m sharing my 2019 Christmas Tree with you.
Yesterday I shared my smaller tree which was fun and colorful and totally mismatched. This time I’m sharing my main tree!
Here it is! This year is a very traditional Christmas look. I wanted to use red baubles this year and since we threw out our white tree last year we decided to use the green tree we still have instead of buying a new tree. I’m really glad we went with the green tree though because it fits so well!
I did use all the red baubles we have, which was actually less than I remembered. My parents have had the plain red ones since I was a baby so they’re over 25 years old and quite battered. My plan is to use them this year but at the end of the season look for red baubles that are discounted and replace them for future years. I paired the red baubles with silver ones that came in the set from a few years ago when I had a blue and silver theme on the white tree so I was glad I didn’t have to go out and buy more!
We rounded out the tree with a few other red and silver fun ornaments such as ones I’ve gotten at the Christmas market or ones that my parents have had for years as well. There’s more fun ornaments than in previous years as my mom got really excited that they matched so there’s a Santa on the tree, a Beanie Baby ornament, some angels, some snowflakes, and more. I also had a red garland and a silver one so I put those up and we had found a silver star in TJ Maxx a few weeks ago so I put that up there as well. I then put down the red tree skirt that we’ve had and it was done!
This tree is a bit more of a hassle to put up as it’s also the tree that my parents have had since I was a baby so it’s quite old. Additionally, the branches have to be put on individually and it’s not pre-lit so I have to put the lights on manually as well. It’s not the end of the world and I don’t actually mind as we’ve now had to throw out two pre-lit trees because they keep going out! However, out twinkling lights for this tree stopped working so I’m now on the hunt for new ones for this tree in addition to new red baubles.
And here’s the tree lit up! I really love how great it looks in either day or night and the colors just are so pretty. I haven’t put up a traditional tree like this in years and I’m quite happy with how it turned out! Since I’m the one that puts it up my parents normally refrain from sharing too many opinions, especially my dad, but this year they both have absolutely fawned over the tree and told me how much they love it so I guess it’s a hit!
Let me know what you think of this main tree! Like I said, I’m happy with how it turned out and love the traditional look it has this year, although I do miss the pink tree!
