Holiday Open House Party- Week 3

O, Christmas Tree! O, Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can'st give me;
How often has the Christmas tree
Afforded me the greatest glee!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can'st give me.

Welcome to Week 3 of the Holiday Open House!

It's time to show off those fabulous Christmas trees!
If you have more than one tree, then show them all off!

I can't wait to see them!

I have showed you glimpses of mine but would you like to take a closer look?
I'll show you some of my favorite ornaments and the other things that adorn our tree.

Here is a view of our whole tree.
I have a red tree skirt under it. I think it is Martha Stewart.

Here is my tree topper.
I'm totally drawing a blank on the name of this thing. It is normally just a table top decoration but there is the perfect sized hole on the bottom of it to slip onto the top of my tree.

I wrapped the tree in two different Silver ribbons. The first is this ribbon that I have had for a few years now and it is Martha Stewart. Love the silver, glittery swirls.

The next ribbon is this shiny dot ribbon. It really bounces the light around and off the tree.

I made these Tree picks this year and they add a little dimension to the tree.
Tutorial coming up for these!

On to the ornaments:
This is Travis' hand blown ornament.
It is blue and orange but the blue pretty much overtook the orange.

And here is my hand blown ornament. I choose yellow and a light blue.

My little Noel Santa was a gift from my Aunt when I was younger. She would give my sister and I an ornament every year with our gift.

Every year, my mom buys my sister and I an ornament and vice versa.
This is the ornament I got from her in 2008. I love the unique little trees. There is a single tree on the back of it as well.

I'm a big glass, glittery ornament girl (I'm sure you're not surprised). I just love the simplicity of this white ornament with the snowflakes on it.

This was the ornament from my mom one year.
It actually came from Cracker Barrel Restaurant (they have awesome Christmas decor in their Country Store).

What's a tree without a Santa on it?!
This was a gift from my aunt growing up and he is still one of my favorites.

Chartreuse egg shaped ornament.

I love the shape of this and how simple it is!

I bought this one year from Hobby Lobby.

My sister actually gave me this hand blown ornament a couple years ago.

My mom gave me this ornament the year Travis and I got married.
We got married in January and one of our wedding colors was Chartreuse so she thought it worked well for our wedding ornament without literally being a "First Married Christmas" ornament.

I bought this one year also at Cracker Barrel Restaurant.
Perfect saying for the season!

Holly ornament.

Fun red and green glittery ornament.

Light blue snowflake teardrop ornament.

Most of my ornaments are light colors or red but I fell in love with this pink polka dot ornament and had to have it.

Glittery ornament was a gift from a friend in high school.

Another simple yet elegant ornament.

I bought this one this year as well at Hobby Lobby. I love the mirrored look of it.

Festive polka dot ornament.

I love this ornament as well since it is different from all the rest.
I also got this one from a friend in high school.

White teardrop snowflake ornament.

Another Santa ornament that was a gift from my aunt growing up.

I love the dark gray color of this one.

Simple, white ornament.

Love the glow of the tree at night!

So that's my tree!
I can't wait to see yours now.

Just a reminder that next week is the Last Holiday Open House and it is your Outdoor decor!
