I’ve been sharing a few sneak peeks on Instagram, but the day has finally come to share all the details of my Christmas tree! After several years of flocked snowy themed trees, I was ready for a more classic looking realistic tree. When Balsam Hill invited me to participate with their Balsam Hill 12 Bloggers of Christmas campaign I was thrilled! I’m excited to be joining 11 other bloggers who are sharing their Christmas style.
With all the white in our new home, I was craving the fresh green look of a real tree. It’s especially white in all of these photos, because I shot this in the middle of a snowstorm – it was very cozy. Balsam Hill’s 9 ft Sanibel Spruce was the perfect tree choice for our space. I have never seen a more realistic looking tree!
The shape and color are perfect. The irregular branches really give it a classic vibe.
Not to mention this is the absolute easiest tree I have ever set up in my life. There was no fighting with lights or trying to match up plugs. This pre-lit version has sections that just insert into each other with the plugs built right in. Balsam Hill’s trees also come with really nice storage bags to keep them safely stored the rest of the year.
In keeping with that classic theme, I picked out these beautiful mercury glass French Country ornaments.
Along with this Antiqued Snowflake Ornament set. My photos don’t begin to do these ornaments justice – they are so, so, beautiful.
Even my 7 year old son oohed and ahhhed when we placed the Antiqued Snowflake Tree Topper on the top of the tree.
Mixed in with the mercury glass ornaments and the snowflakes, I added the Crystal Palace Glass ornament set. All the unique shapes and silver tones of these ornaments make them feel like vintage ornaments I have collected over time. They really feel like something my grandma would have passed down.
The gorgeous Silver and Platinum Christmas Tree Ribbon I tucked into the tree added to the metallic theme. Velvet is a huge trend this season from fashion to home decor, and this ribbon could not be prettier.
I talked about my love of these fun Color Changing LED Christmas Tree Candles a few weeks ago, and they are the perfect finishing touch to my classic tree. My kids have been loving changing the colors every day when they get home from school.
I love the fact that all of these silvery ornaments will easily transition with whatever Christmas theme I decide to go with next year. Many thanks to Balsam Hill for partnering with me on this project. I’m so excited for the cozy classic tone this tree has set for our Christmas this year. I can’t wait to share the rest of our home decked out in the next few weeks!
