Happy Sunday and hope you’re having a great weekend! It’s so fun to have the whole month ahead of us and looking forward to all the festivities that go with this season of the year. I just love Christmas, don’t you? It’s a happy and joyous time of celebrating with family and friends and also a time to remember the true meaning of Christmas.
Today, I’m joining Tree Classics and several other bloggers for a Snowy Sundays Christmas tree sharing as we have all decorated our trees and enjoy sharing them with all of you. I have a Snowy Aspen Spruce from Tree Classics and it’s a 7 1/2′ tall tree, lightly flocked and very beautiful. It’s a little bit wide at the base and so we had to move around the furniture in our smallish living room to accomodate it, but it sure is pretty!
Come on in and join the party! We don’t have snow here in Georgia, but we can still celebrate Winter and this beautiful time of year. We have very balmy weather right now and we never know what we’ll get in December from year to year, but typically it’s been pretty warm.
The sofa got moved and the chairs are out for now, but it makes for cozy seating in front of the tree. I can see some hot chocolate sipping going on right here.
The Snowy Spruce is really a beautiful tree, lightly flocked and very full and lush. I was going to go with all cranberry/gold this year and had some new ornaments from Tree Classics in those colors. I did use all of those too, along with many of my own gold and cranberry ornaments that I’ve had for many years. But, once I saw all the Shiny Brites that Mark had in his collection, along with my own Shiny Brite collection, I decided I just had to go all colorful and add them all!
And I’m so glad I did! We all grew up with very colorful ornaments on the tree, so I’m going back to that tradition for our tree and I think this will be our new look from now on.
A colorful tree makes me so happy and truly brings back childhood memories with all those beautiful and colorful Shiny Brite ornaments that we had on our tree. My mom passed along what was left of our childhood collection to me several years ago and I cherish and treasure them.
Mark has quite a few too so it only made sense to just use them all. I added his on the front right side of the tree and mine towards the back on the left side. You can see these pretty burgandy and gold ornaments from Tree Classics too if you looks closely.
This Merry Christmas ornament is one of my favorites from his collection.
I’ve got some beautiful and fragile ornaments from my childhood on the tree and we are going to have to be very careful with them, since they are paper thin now. I have several of the faceted ornaments that were so popular back then. I’ve also collected a few other boxes of vintage ornaments from antique stores along the way.
These two from my childhood are faves too, that pink and silver swirled one at the top right and this striped pink and yellow one in the middle. These were both hanging on our family tree growing up and I love them so much.
I used a neutral black and cream ribbon with sparkles that I found last year since neutral ribbon works with anything. I just love the addition of these colorful ornaments from both of our childhoods hanging on the tree. We are going to look for additional vintage style ornaments to add to our tree next year, since new vintage style Shiny Brites are being made now too. I’m so glad they’ve made a comeback! Oh the nostalgia they create!
My pretty Fitz and Floyd nativity set has been with me for about 25 years now and I treasure it too. My grandmother’s side table was a perfect spot to show it off.
The tree really makes a statement in the living room and we sure do love it.
I hope you don’t mind, but I took at lot of pics of the tree at different times of the day. I wanted the colors to really be shown off and without the lights on, the colors really shine.
It feels like our vintage trees from the past and I couldn’t be happier with it. It’s not a fancy designer style tree, but we love it.
This bell was a favorite from my childhood tree.
And the Merry Christmas ornament from Mark’s childhood again, I just love it along with the swirled one and the one above with all that gorgeous color.
There are many beautiful ornaments to capture our attention and I know we’ll be staring at this tree a lot during the Christmas season. The pretty cranberry and gold Christmas tree skirt is also from Tree Classics.
I’m so happy to be sharing our tree with all of you today and I hope you enjoy the Snowy Sundays tour!
You can see a peek into the kitchen and I’ve got a special surprise in there to share with you, so that will be next week. It’s feeling so festive around here!
I’ve got several more spaces to share, so I’ll be breaking it all up into several posts in the next couple of weeks, but it sure is looking like Christmas around here!
