So we finally got our tree up....and when I say "up" I mean way up, so Axel, the sweetest little biting puppy ever, can't get it. It actually looks really sweet...I just put it on an end table I had and used an Ikea curtain as a tree skirt. (This is officially my second Ikea hack haha). I like things simple and classic at Christmas. Not too much clutter...actually, I think with the world being a tad cray cray right now, a lot of people are feeling the simple Christmas thing.
I trimmed the tree with most of the things I had from last year but also purchased some Martha Stewart glitter garland at Home Depot.
I added some feathers form the dollar store to the mantel...looks so pretty...like snow.
I also made some garland out of some gold & silver glitter ornaments from the Superstore and put them on my lamp shades in the dining room.
And this is the reason why there are no presents under the tree yet....Axel, the destroyer.
