Christmas Decor (Part One- Our Big Christmas Tree)

I finally got most of our Christmas decorations up! I don’t know why I’m dragging with decorating this year. Maybe because it doesn’t seem like it should be December.
Let’s get started with our big Christmas tree… and Jack. He wanted to say “Merry Christmas” to you guys.
Why yes, I am holding a treat in my hand to get him to sit like this.

The tree is an artificial 7 footer. I showed how I put the lights on the tree here.

I scored the glass ornaments from Target at their day after Christmas sale in 2007. 9 boxes (15 ornaments per box) for $2.50 each (originally $9.99)! I love these ornaments. I think that they would really pop on a white Christmas tree. All I have to do is convince Brad…

The ribbon is from JoAnn Fabric, and the star is from Kohls.



It never fails, every year at least one ornament breaks. Last year Jack’s tail murdered an ornament.
It was my turn to destroy one this year. Whaa-whaa.
Our Christmas stockings are also from Target, circa 2007. Brad doesn’t really care for them, but I like them and that’s what really matters. Right?
Come back for Part Two, where I’ll show you our entryway!
How is your Christmas decorating going?

Do you also bribe your dog with treats in order to get a decent photo of them?

I’ll be linking up here!

  1. I seriously love this color combo. Nate would never go for it. Fun hater.

    And those stockings…

    We always use treats or toys with Ike. Treat monkey.

  2. Loving your fun colors and the tree is gorgeous! Jack is too cute…we have to bribe Chloe as well!

  3. Lol, he did take a great photo! We’re way behind on putting our decorations up. Hopefully this week. Love your colors. I buy a lot of those colors when I buy ornaments, but my tree is just a whole mish-mash. But, I have a lot of sentimental ornaments so that’s ok. We buy one ornament every year. I need to start looking!

  4. Your tree looks fantastic! I love how fun it looks. But with my tree at home I’m very much a traditionalist and I use red, green, and white ornaments. For me you can’t get much more beautiful than that. I agree with you that your color combo would be amazing on a white tree…I’ve been wanting a white tree to decorate with just red and green ornaments but unfortunately my husband just can’t see my vision!

  5. What fun colors! This year I was feeling silvers, whites, and glitter. I love your little pup in that first picture.. now if only I could get mine to do that..

  6. your tree is awesome! i love the bright and neon colors so fun and unexpected. love it chelsea, thanks for taking photos and showing us!

    I love your tree and your stockings though!!

  9. I love, love, love how colorful and bright your tree is! Beautiful!

  10. I am definitely not a traditional red and green Christmas decorator, so I am loving how you decorated your tree! We went with a blue/aqua scheme with pops of other color coming in from vintage ornaments. I love all the color at this time of year – it’s fun to stray from the traditional color schemes.

  11. coming from Thrifty Decor Chick’s Linky Party. . because the color in your pic caught my eye. . and I love color!!! I just pinned your tree.

    I do the jewel tones at our house, too!
    Mine are plastic…because I have a two year old, a four year old, two black labs and a cat…we’ll do glass when they are older (the kids)!

  23. These photos are breathtaking! I love the colors and the sparkle. Thank you for sharing!

  24. I have most of the same ornaments, and I am looking for a white tree right now on craigslist! I had a Christmas luau over the summer and decorated a small white tree-it was SO cute.

    Love your sequin stockings too!! I love that target does stuff in the same color family each year.
