A Jewel Toned Tree, 12 Bloggers of Christmas with Balsam Hill + a Giveaway

The first Christmas in a new home is such a special one. There really is something magical about holiday decorating that seems to make a house automatically feel like a home. Once I figured out where I wanted to put our Christmas tree I knew exactly how I wanted to decorate it. Christmas is such a fun time to play with colors you don’t usually use in your home. This year I decided to give our tree a jewel toned holiday look, and I incorporated some beautiful amethyst colored ornaments, a color I really love but rarely use in my home. I’ve yet to do much else besides the tree, but I’m loving how cozy just the tree made our living room feel!

I was so honored to be included in Balsam Hill’s 12 bloggers of Christmas, where they invited each of us to deck out one of their beautiful trees and offer some really great prizes and discounts to our readers. I chose the Black Spruce tree with white lights in a 6 1/2 ft height, and I love how realistic the branches look! This is without a doubt the most real looking fake tree I’ve ever had!

The branches are nice and strong, so they don’t droop down when you hang heavy ornaments on them. This Black Spruce tree also boasts two different branch styles which gives it a great full look.

As great as this tree looks I have to admit what I personally love most was how easy it was to assemble. Three pieces that easily connect together with a strong tree stand, and it comes with a pair of light weight gloves to make fluffing the branches simple, hassle free and easy on your hands. I am all about keeping the holiday decorating easy breeze-y!

I used a mix of jewel toned classic looking ornaments mixed with the cream colored giant pom poms I made last year and a few other glittery gold embellishments like the pretty butterflies which are actually napkin rings my momma gifted me years ago. In lieu of a traditional tree skirt I opted to put the tree base in a large cream colored cable knit basket.

Now that our tree is up, I’m excited to decorate our mantel and the rest of the house!
