Yesterday I shared our main bedroom sitting room fireplace. And you know I couldn’t have a new space in our house and not decorate it for Christmas. So I added a white and silver Christmas tree. Because that’s my business.
White and Silver Christmas Tree Inspiration
The white and silver Christmas tree was inspired by the glam Christmas tree I created a couple years ago. And by ‘inspired’ I mean I took most of the things that I used on the glam tree and used them on this tree. That’s because I’m trying not to buy new Christmas decor this year and use what I already have.
I think this tree is very ‘Chelsea in 20 years without children in the house’.
I scored this 7′ slim flocked tree for $80. And when it showed up on our front porch (two days early), Brad found it and was all, “You bought another tree?” I, of course, played dumb. But it didn’t work. He’s since come around to it and appreciates the tree being the backdrop of his work video meetings.
The tree skirt is a piece of faux white fur from JoAnn Fabric. To give it some body, I shove plastic bags underneath. I doubt Martha Stewart implements that technique.
The tree is adorned with feather boas, disco ball ornaments, white and silver ornaments, snowball ornaments, and various white and sparkly picks. I even took apart a garland I had to create some of the picks. Again, using what I already have this year.
I love how the feather boas look like snow on the tree. All I do is cut regular feather boas into smaller sections. At night the lights glow through the boas. It’s very pretty and rather romantical.
After sending a photo of the tree to a friend, I said, “Why do I always turn into an extra AF 65 year old woman when decorating my Christmas trees?” It’s an odd phenomenon. I see a Christmas tree, and my brain screams “More! More! More!” See my peppermint Christmas tree and red and white Christmas tree for examples.
I can’t wait to share the rest of this decorated space with you. Brad has the fanciest Microsoft Teams background of all his colleagues. Just saying.
