Our Blue and White Christmas Tree is upstairs in the Bonus room which is where the grandchildren like to hang out when they visit.
My Breast Cancer Awareness ornament is in honor of my Mom who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2013. I found this beautiful ornament at Avon a few years ago. The pink needs to stand out and it does that well on the blue and white tree.
This tree is a 6 ft. artificial pre-lit and wrapped in three different ribbons. One is a baby blue grosgrain I picked up from a yard sale on a huge spool for only .50¢. There is a really thin soft blue almost white ribbon with little silver beads which I remember buying at Big Lots years ago. Finally I used a cream color tulle tucked in cascading down the tree which was also a yard sale find.
All of our ornaments have been accumulated through the years. My hubby and I have been married twenty years. You tend to accumulate Christmas decor over the years. After losing much of my Christmas decor in a flood in 1994, I had to start over. In recent year’s I have discovered that Big Lots has gorgeous ornaments at reasonable prices. Most of the ornaments on the Blue and White Christmas tree came from Big Lots over the last few years. I actually pack them away in bins according to ornament colors for storage after Christmas.
Pop over here to see our Traditional Red Ornaments and Plaid Christmas Tree in the living room. It is a huge live Frazier Fir we treated ourselves to for our first Christmas in our new home.
The Dragonfly on the front of the tree was a gift from my daughter. Isn’t it gorgeous! Christmas ornaments are always more special when they were gifted.
The bonus room has the only front facing window we could place a Christmas tree in front of. Unfortunately there is a tree growing tall enough to block it’s view. Isn’t that funny.
Three Tips for Decorating A Fake Christmas Tree
- Even if you have a pre-lit tree add more lights. The more the better.
- Buy some Dollar store green garland to use for wrapping the inner part of the tree to make it appear more full. If you wrap the garland strategically, it will make the tree seem more full and hide the empty spots.
- Use LOTS of ornaments. Hang ornaments in layers deep on branches and out to the ends. Also be sure to use all sizes especially large and small to give your tree depth.
