Last year I put up my green tree. I also have a red one. All small table top trees, appropriate for apartment living.
I just choose which table top tree I’m going to put up according to whim really. I do usually use a lot of red and white, so that typically remains the same.
I adore the combination of red and white. It’s such a fun and spirited combo and it makes me happy to see a tree made up in red and white.
The little holiday vignette is beside the TV. Last year I put the tree in the dining room.
Both times I put the tree in this red galvanized tub I bought a few years ago at the antique mall. It is for beverages, but I use it for my Christmas tree.
I’m not putting Christmas all over my apartment. Just in a few select places. Tomorrow I’ll show you my dining table vignette.
See the “snow” I put around the white tree? That is white netting I use every year to resemble snow. It’s cheap to have some cut at some place like Hobby Lobby. And I think it makes the tree look elegant.
Okay, my ankle is killing me and I missed lunch entirely so that’s all I’m doing today. Like I said, I am just decorating in a few areas, because I don’t want holiday clutter on every single surface.
I’m getting to the age when I enjoy putting up the holiday decor, but get tired of it rather quickly and then of course I have to take it down.
I imagine it’s the same with everyone!
