Get excited. Today I’m sharing our 2018 flocked Christmas tree!
I’m also joining another amazing holiday home tour with a bunch of talented bloggers so be sure to check those out at the end of the post. If you’re stopping by from Life is a Party, welcome!
Before I get to the Christmas tree, I wanted to show you how I decorated the board and batten wall across from our built-in coat lockers. You see this wall when you’re coming from the front door to the living room and kitchen so I figured it needed a little Christmas cheer.
I got the felted wool mistletoe garland and wreath last year during a sale. The red and white felt ball garland was also a sale purchase– I want to say I scored each strand (there’s two in this photo) for $10 each.
I love the felted wool because it’s so classic and timeless– I can’t see it ever going out of style.
Now onto the tree!
Last year, was my first year with this flocked tree. I was so awestruck by its beauty that I added some picks in it and called it a day. But this year I thought I should up my game a little, so I added some silver and red mercury glass ornaments.
I got the ornaments from HomeGoods. I’m sure the cashier wanted to strangle me when I waltzed up with that many breakables to wrap. But I think I surprised her by wrapping the ornaments while she rang them up. And seriously, they’re gorgeous, substantial glass ornaments for the price. I’d believe it if I saw the same ornaments priced at $15 each at Pottery Barn. Oh, and I dropped one from at least 4 feet up, and nothing happened to it.
Some of you may be thinking, “Wow, glass ornaments with a 9 month old baby. Ballsy, Chelsea.” BUT Emmett hasn’t shown much interest in the tree. And I figure next year he’ll be way more into it so I need to seize this moment and do glass ornaments this year.
I have to be honest, all the white boxes with red ribbons and bows aren’t even wrapped. They’re just white boxes that I put red ribbons and bows on. Easiest. Gift. Wrapping. Ever.
I had to share this photo of Emmett taking his short morning nap in front of the tree the other day.
If you’re following the tour, Tatertots and Jello is up next! But definitely check out all the amazing Christmas spaces throughout the week. And shout out to The Happy Housie for organizing this tour!
Today I’m joined by some talented friends who are also sharing part of their Christmas home tour with you…
And the sharing continues all week long!
