Traditional Red & Green Christmas Tree The Tree

Last year, I decided I wanted to put a tree in our dining room. I completely adore the flocked trees from King of Christmas so buying one of those was a no-brainer decision! I decided to purchase an unlit tree as a way to save a little money. With this tree being only 6 feet tall, it’s very easy to put a few strands of lights on it. The tree is very full and fluffy with the flocking. The downside to that is that it makes it harder to tuck the strands of lights in and hide them without hiding some of the bulbs. Seeing the cords doesn’t bother me but if it would bother you, I’d stick to the prelit version.

The room used to have red walls and red and green striped chair cushions. We also have a really formal dining set so I knew I wanted to do something fun, bright and whimsical to break up some of the seriousness of the space. I loved it so much last year that even though we painted the room navy this past spring, I still wanted to use it again in the space. I simply just added a few navy colored bulbs to bring in some of that pretty new color. It’s such a small area between the tree and the table that I don’t bother “decorating” under the tree with wrapped gifts. I just bunched up a small white blanket and called it a day!

 These big sequin flowers are from Michael’s and I loved them so much that I wish I had purchased more but they ended up selling out before I could get my hands on them.

Ribbon

This red and white striped ribbon really makes the tree, I think. As you can see, I just tucked ribbon in here and there, creating bigger “poofs” as I did it. I used the red and white striped ribbon, some green and some white with gold polka dots that I already had on hand, all in varying widths. In all honesty, without counting the time I spent adding lights to the tree, the whole thing probably came together in under 30 minutes. Small trees are fun like that!

One of my favorite traditions is adding a new photo frame ornament to the tree each year. It’s so fun to see the progression of our lives since our first Christmas together back in 2005. I used to hang them on our big family room tree but they would get lost in the sea of ornaments every year so I decided to hang them on this tree. It’s nearly full now so I guess I’ll just have to get a matching one for the other side of my hutch! 😉  (Don’t think I didn’t already pre-buy the ribbon and an additional tree topper “just in case”. Ha!)
