Happy Monday everyone! Christmas decorating is continuing this week and today I’m thrilled to begin the My Home Style Blog Hop: Christmas Tree Edition! If you didn’t catch the first blog hop, check out that post here. I love the My Home Style Blog Hop! Not only is it a great way to discover different styles of home decorating, but it also gives you tips and guides to achieve the look in your home. Be sure to visit the other amazing bloggers sharing their Christmas tree styles each day this the week!
To kick off the hop, I’m sharing my green and gold global, eclectic Christmas Tree! I opted for a gold and green color scheme that complements my entryway. You can see my winter entryway shared on part one of my home tour here.
Decorating the Christmas tree is one of my favorite holiday events. We make hot chocolate, bake cookies, and finish up the night by decorating the tree as a family. We have two trees in our home, a family decorated tree in the family room and my “designer” tree in the dining room. The dining room tree is the one I get to experiment with. Each year, I use different colors, ornaments, ribbon, etc. to decorate my “designer” tree without little hands moving the items. Check out the rest of the dining room in part two of my home tour here.
In the first My Home Style blog hop, I described my style as Cozy, Global, Eclectic style. My Christmas tree displays a lot of those elements and here’s how I put it together.
Global inspired ornaments are my favorite ornaments to buy. I typically buy all the ornaments on clearance and use them for the upcoming year. The look is pretty much planned out a full year in advance. The green and gold ornaments as well as the glittered burlap ribbon were purchased last year at Michael’s.
The burlap ribbon is perfect for that cozy feeling. The fact that it was glittered just made it 10 times better. After wrapping the ribbon around the tree, I added the mirrors I purchased from the thrift store. It made the tree have a nice glam, eclectic look.
I pulled ornaments that looked worldly or global inspired in style from my ornament stash. I found that beaded finial ornaments as well as glass finial ornaments are pretty global looking. The beaded finials can read a bit Indian while the glass finial ornaments exude a bit of antique European baroque.
To fill the tree, I added a slew of colorful and gold glittered ornaments. I also added a few glittered sprigs around the tree and one as the tree topper. The star tree topper was instead used as decor under the tree.
I don’t have any gifts wrapped, but I thought I would still showoff some goodies under the tree. I really like how this vignette turned out.
Since I used a faux fur blanket as the tree skirt, I rolled up my gold tree skirt and simply placed it in a basket. A few boxwood spheres and a topiary add some greenery to the bottom of the tree.
What’s the best part about decorating a Christmas tree?
Turning on the lights!
So, what do you think? Perhaps you’ll bring in some global, eclectic accents to your Christmas tree this season? How would you describe your home style? Snap a pic of your tree, post it to Instagram with the hashtag #myhomestylebloghop, and describe your tree decor style.
