This year I decided to go with Festive Red and Gold Christmas Tree Decorations for the upstairs tree in the bonus room.
I love to add a decorated Christmas tree to the bonus room. It’s a hang-out place when the house is full so I want to always create a festive atmosphere during the holiday season.
It took me days to finally settle on decorating this tree in Red and Gold for Christmas this year. I don’t usually decorate my Christmas trees the same every year.
Before I share how I settled on Red and Gold for the Christmas tree this year, take a look at this same tree from the last two years.
Last year I decorated this same artificial tree heavily with red and gold ribbons and bows.(see above) I love all of the long tails of the ribbon draped around the tree.
During our first year in this home, I decorated the upstairs tree in blue and silver. (see above) It turned out quite beautiful and has been shared over 15k times.
Red Chevron Burlap Ribbon adds a nice rustic touch to the traditional red and gold Christmas balls on the tree.
You can find lots of beautiful Christmas balls at Big Lots. I have accumulated ornaments in various colors through the years and many of them came from Big Lots at very reasonable prices.
My angel tree topper was a happy find. It took me several years of searching for the perfect Angel tree topper that brought to life the childhood memories in my mind.
There are many Christmas tree toppers to choose from these days but not many are angels and they are far too expensive for the most part.
Amazingly, we found this one at a yard sale for $1! What a hoot that she checked all my boxes. She is perfect to top my Christmas tree decorated in red and gold. Her porcelain head makes her a little top-heavy but positioned just right, she stays in place.
Some of the Christmas balls on the tree are glass but most of them are plastic. They remind me of childhood Christmas trees when all of the balls on the tree were made of glass and they were just beautiful.
It is fun to give a nod to the vintage looks and style of Christmas trees I grew up with.
Our grandchildren and family will feel the Christmas spirit in the bonus room with such a festive decorated Christmas tree in the corner this year.
