I thought I’d share photos of our formal living area with the whimsical, fun Christmas tree. Last year was our first Christmas to ever have a tree – thanks to med school/residency moving so I went all out. I wanted a really funky, different tree. I opted for a flocked tree because I love how the colors really pop on it. My sister is a master tree decorator – seriously so good. We are working on a little video to share of how she does all of it! Basically, she lets me pick out my colors and ‘theme’ and then she just puts it all on the tree and it looks incredible. I’ve been getting lots of questions regarding the other tree in our living room – it is a Burberry theme and it is super classic and very traditional. John really likes that tree a lot – he likes Burberry though, lol. I’ll share photos of that room separately along with the video. We shot this super fast yesterday bc John had a little lunch break so he ran home and took these. The lighting isn’t the best, but hopefully you’ll still get the idea. I’ve had so many requests for this posts and I didn’t want to make you all wait too long.
 
SO.. My sister’s big thing with ribbon is making sure you splurge on ribbon! I bought all Hobby Lobby ribbon last year, not knowing, and she tossed it. (lol). It’s like fashion really – you  can wear a completely F21 outfit but carry a designer handbag and it totally changes the look and brings it up a notch. The nicer the ribbon, the better it holds up and looks on the tree. Utilizing ribbon this way is so different and fun and really elevates the look. The store where I buy all of my ribbon is in Northwest Arkansas and I think it costs about $40 a roll. This white flocked Christmas tree is from a store in Tulsa called At Home and it is 7.5 feet tall. We probably used 7-8 rolls of ribbon for this tree, but honestly, next year I will add more & change it out bc it didn’t look as ‘neat’ this year. I’m hoping to catch it on sale at the end of the month. My mom had to iron the ribbon this year because it got wrinkled in storage. Many of my statement ornaments are also from the store in NWA and other random decor are from there also. We got every October to get what I want before the good stuff sells out. *Edited- the little silver glittery deer are from WALMART! ($10)… the darker, larger silver one was from the store in Arkansas and it was $40!
 
I will make sure and link everything that can be ordered online at the end but for now I’ll quickly tell you all where the other details are from. The tree skirt is from Dillards (last year) and the stockings were custom made from a store in OKC. I actually snapcchatted that I couldn’t find striped stockings and the company reached out and said they can do custom ones! I just sent them a photo of the shape that I like and told them I wanted b&w horizontal stripes. They turned out perfect!
 
The wrapping paper was all random and last minute, lol. I’ve gotten them from Target, Home Goods, At Home, etc. The ribbon w/the deer on it is from Hobby Lobby. 
 
FLOOR MIRROR (25% off)
CHANDELIER (sold out – similar here) (I bought this before we even closed on the house – I’ve always wanted it but John says it looks like a a science project!)

  1. I love all your decor idea from Christmas to everyday!!! I have learned so much watching your videos and reading your blog. Do you have any other recipes you and john make that are good! I loved the Buffalo dip! and Do you have pandora? If so what artist do you like to listen to? Have fun in NY with your family!!! xoxo

  2. I would love to see more pictures of your home or a house tour on you youtube channel? 😀 The houses in America is so different from the once we have there in Sweden.

  3. Hi friend Am Peggy Barry from Canada,i wonder why people still don't believe that roots and herbs are very essential and fruitful in different aspect,especially when you can't conceive and bear children. I am a living witness because I tried all I could to be pregnant but all to no avail,until I contacted Native Hindi,who gave me some roots and herbs syrup and told me when to have sex with my man.I missed my menstrual flow within a short period of taking it,and the doctor confirmed that I am pregnant.I am very glad to tell the world that I am a mother of a bouncing baby boy,contact him for your own testimony on: hindinative@yahoo.com .

  4. I hope i can find a flocked tree like this. i really love how fluffy the branches look. its hard to describe but it is so pretty. i am trying to recreate this tree for this year.

    1. Mine are from a store in Tulsa called At Home! I actually don’t remember the brand or style name of our trees! They are from the past few years! So sorry!
