Decking Our Halls

This year I finally bit the bullet and ordered a white Christmas tree.

It's something I've always wanted and I am so happy I brought myself to order it. It's quite a bit larger than our previous tree and we almost didn't think we'd have room for it as we started putting it together.

I started to panic just a little and then it turned into nervous laughter. Dave didn't help because he was convinced it was going to be too tall, as well. Uh.oh.

But, after all was said and done, it fit snugly between our two chairs.

Phew.

Crisis averted and all is well in the NVD house.

Right now the tree has pink, silver, and white ornaments on it and I am really digging it. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but most things I like aren't, and that's ok. : D

Take a little peak at our living room all Christmased up! Are you all decorated yet?

I LOVE your white Christmas tree! It is gorgeous! :) Our halls are decked- 2 trees this year put lit garland all above the kitchen cupboards. It added so much light in our kitchen that we might just leave it up there!

It looks amazing Joi! So glad that it fit so perfectly. We got our tree home on the weekend (we cut a real one each year) only to find out it was at least a foot too tall, so we were sawing in the kitchen. That wasn't very fun to clean up :)

Love the decor!

I love white xmas trees, and yours looks great!

Emily V. said...

I loooooove it! Where did you get it?(If you don't mind telling) I've always wanted a white tree but all the ones I find are so small. It's so pretty!

Michelle @ Ten June said...

Loving the white tree! The glitzy stockings are adorable too. Got to love a little glam in your Christmas decor!

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

The tree looks so pretty - there is so much inspiration to get from these pictures!

Isn't Christmas all about what makes YOU feel festive!! Glad you went for what you wanted, the white tree looks fab. :) We're partially decorated, and at this rate it might stay that way for awhile - eek!

It is so, so beautiful!! I am in love! I've been wanting a white tree, but didn't know if I'd come to regret it. Walmart has one for $38 I've been debating getting.. It's cheap enough that I could never use it again if that's what I wanted.

Kristen said...

Your tree looks amazing!! As does the rest of your decorations! I cant wait to finish my decorating this weekend.

Christina C said...

Karen said...

Your tree is so pretty and the room looks gorgeous.The dresser is fabulous too.No I'm not close to decorated still working on making ornaments since I decided to change the color scheme this year...since I have no budget the dollar store and handmade are where its at for me. But as per usual , I'm running behind.

Kim @ NewlyWoodwards said...

I love it, Joi. Just lovely. I really miss my white tree that was broken last year. Maybe I need to find another after Christmas.

Leslie G said...

I have been loving white Christmas trees lately! I love the glow that they bring when they are lit up. So pretty.
As far as our decorating, we have everything up except the tree, which will go up after Cameron's party this weekend. We don't have much space for 30 kids/adults to mingle, so we figured we'll wait to put it up so it doesn't come crashing down with all those people.

Natalie said...

Your tree is gorgeous! I want to live in your house, you have fabulous taste!

Sara @ Russet Street Reno said...

I love your white tree and beautiful decorations! We have a lame undecorated tree up and nothing else. I'm just not feeling it this year, not sure why?

Hi! I have the same shiny reindeer - have you ever been able to find candles that fit in the antlers? I would LOVE to buy some!!

Allison aka Half of VAMH said...

Whoever says this isnt their cup of tea is no friend of mine. (I kid, I kid.....sorta)

LOVE!

Jessica said...

It's outside the box, but I love it! You were my inspiration for the diy wreath I made. Not the one with tinsel, but the one with yarn. You gave me the motivation chica to actually do it! Joi come to my house and make it pretty por favor :)

Oh sister! It's definitely my cup of tea! I love a white Christmas tree and don't know that I will be able to own anything else. I am so wanting to add some pink to my blue and silver color scheme. Just haven't found any pink ornaments I love.
