I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday weekend, I know that I did! I pretty much spent three days straight in my jammies and even did a little Christmas shopping, also in my jammies!
As you know, I have been decorating around the house, some of which I have already shown you, and some of which is still to come!
I told you a little about my tree in my previous post and even showed you tid bits of it.
I am really happy with the way it turned out and I hope that you like it as well!
I have seen trees placed in galvanized tubs all over magazines and throughout blogland so I really wanted to give it a try this year.
I absolutely love the look!!
I simply added a red table cloth inside with just enough color peaking out and set the tree into it!
It fit perfectly!
I tried to stay with a natural theme this year (and by natural, I mean artificially natural, except the pine cones in the wire basket)
The wooden "fork" is usually above the mantle, but that space is being occupied right now so I thought that it look cute against the tree.
I used burlap for a garland as well as strings of berries. There are piks of snow covered evergreens, berries on vines and metal snowflakes on twigs placed throughout.
My topper are branches that I purchased at Michaels that are surrounded by some of the metal snowflakes.
The big red wooden stars I have had for a couple of years and I just love the way the add a little whimsy to the tree.
White poinsettias are scattered through out to add a slight formal touch.
I also went back to Walmart and horded all the remaining "good" mercury glass acorns to hang on the tree!
Tree lit up at night.
In the back ground is my mantle, which I will be sharing with you on Tuesday!
I hope you enjoyed my little tree and I cannot wait to see all of yours!!
