My friends at Balsam Hill sent over a beautiful tree and decorations last week (I very much appreciate them sponsoring this post). I had so much fun decorating for Christmas at my daughter Stephanie’s “new” old home.
Steph and her husband Jon and 2 Littles moved into their charming 1928 cottage just off the Marietta Square a few months ago. She’s been working on their home ever since searching for vintage rugs, just-right furniture and one of a kind accessories.
(The front of the house on Halloween)
But it’s December and she’s put the interior design project on hold for the month of December so she can focus on decorating for Christmas!
In order to warmly welcome friends and family we decided to tuck the tree into the corner of the front room so it’s the first thing you see when you come into the house.To decorate the tree, I picked out pastel pearlescent ornaments,
and frosted blue, champagne, and platinum ornaments,
and this faded antique velvet ribbon. (Which is absolutely stunning.)
I’ve worked with Balsam Hill several times in the past and I’m always thrilled with the excellence of their products. But seriously, these ornaments blew me away. They’re hand painted blown glass that are adorned with gorgeous delicate details while being surprisingly heavy duty.
The tree itself is also beautiful. If you’re looking for an artificial tree (maybe for next Christmas), consider a Balsam Hill tree. This Adirondack Spruce is 7 feet tall with a full (53″) width and 850 lights! I like at least 100 lights per foot on a Christmas tree and this tree exceeds expectation.
This tree sets the mood for celebrating all those special Christmas moments. Below, check out the list of products I used to decorate…
Merry Christmas my friends ~ xo
