A White Christmas

 

 

You know how certain families have their Christmas decor on lock year after year?  Yup, that has never been me.  For some odd reason, swooner and all, I have never been able to resolve to a tried and true holiday decor tradition.  Don’t get me wrong…. it’s not because I haven’t tried, more so that nothing ever felt good enough to be THE ONE.  That is until I decided to go tonal in a winter white color scheme coupled with the subtle, translucent flair found in the trio-sized irridecent glass ornaments.

But moving onto the tree, the lights specifically…. they always, ALWAYS, prove to be a drama to get right!  Who’s with me here? WELL, I have the hack for you.  And one I didn’t even realize was a hack until I posted a time lapse of decorating my tree on IG and I received a whole slew of DM’s asking me about my net lights.  So here they are!  The net lights go on in a single sheet, no fussing and  no filling “holes” — offering  both ease and consistancy for a swoon-worthy tree.

Even our stockings fit the White Christmas theme.  Faux fur and customized with our names!

My advice for a cohesive Christmas tree would simply be to stick to a consistant color scheme. Whether that be gold and silver, pink and copper, or irridescent and white as I choose.  Even blues and greens would be stunning!

Always remaining holistic in my decor choices,  I even found a cuddly faux fur blanket (my son’s request) and a minimal white Christmas tree skirt.
