Rustic Gold Christmas Tree

I worked so hard on our Christmas tree this year and it is by far my most favorite tree ever!!! I enjoyed every last minute of it too. I watched a little Christmas Vacation while Pat was hunting and it was just the best time ever. Yes I know, I’m weird.  Pat FINALLY agreed to getting a real tree. So we headed out to our local tree farm to hunt for the perfect tree. treehuntingMy brother rents a house on the tree farm so he and his adorable girlfriend joined us. I totally made Pat hold my hand for this picture too.

If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed some pictures of our tree already, but here are some more up close and personal details.

This years theme for the tree is rustic and gold. I’m sure you are shocked lol.  I just cant help myself.

I used a lot of natural accents this year. I brought out my burlap ribbon that I made for last years tree and since this one is a little bigger than my old skinny tree I had to cut a few more rows.  I used some lace ribbon as garland along with the few strands of popcorn garland that I was able to salvage from last year.

I stuck a few decorative twig balls that I usually keep in a vase, in random spots on the tree. When my granny passed away in January we went through her things and I took pretty much all the gold ornaments I could find. That’s where those little birds and presents came from.  I did not buy one ornament for this tree, I mostly used what I had, things that I have gotten as gifts and some hand me downs.  The best time to buy ornaments is after Christmas when most stores have them for like 80% off.

What do you think?

Do you have a theme for your trees? Or do you just do the same thing each year?

I would love to hear from you.

  2. You did an amazing job! It looks like you could spend so much time looking through it at all of the pretty ornaments- it’s anything but plain or cookie cutter. Love your idea to include the twig ball decorations as ornaments as well! Hope you have a happy holiday : )
