Our 2013 Christmas Tree

 Each year when decorating our tree, I like to combine traditional elements as well as a few modern touches. My kid's have a collection of Boyd's Bear ornaments that their grandmother got for them several years ago, so they are on the tree each and every year. 

The larger bears sit on the tree skirt at the bottom of the tree. They are so festive and fun. 

I used the same burlap chevron ribbon that I talked about yesterday as a garland for our tree. I draped pieces of it down the tree starting from the top. Those little spriggy things are from Cracker Barrel several years ago.

The rest of the ornaments consist of shatter proof sparkly blue, silver, and white ornaments, snowflakes, and white bows. The Peace and Joy ornaments are from Walmart. 

And finally we have our tree topper. This one is new to us this year. I found it at Sears marked way down on black Friday. Audrey wanted a tree topper that she could put on the tree herself while her daddy picked her up. *so sweet*

Here is a shot of of our tree all lit up at night.

So cozy! I love this time of year! Now I need to go make some hot cocoa. :)

Have a BLESSED day!


  1. Love skinny trees jam packed with ornaments!!!
    So very festive:)

    1. Thank you! I've been second guessing myself on the skinny tree. I love full trees but our little living room isn't quite big enough! Thanks for commenting and thanks for stopping by!

  2. Stopping by from the link up! I love that your tree has a coordinated look but still holds your children's ornament collection. Sometimes I think I should have two trees, one for our all time favorite and then another one themed.

    1. Thanks so much Colleen. We have a smaller tree in our kid's playroom that has all of their handmade and special keepsake ornaments on it. :) I hope to share that one soon. Thanks for visiting!
