Hello lovelies! It’s been awhile! Hope you’re enjoying this beautiful wet weather we’re having on the east coast. I’ve had a cold the past week, so in order to cheer myself up I put my creative cap on today.
I don’t know about you, but this is by far my favorite time of the year! I don’t know if it’s the cool air, bon fires, the roasting of marshmallows, the flannels, or the plain fact that it is now officially “sweata weatha”, it all has my heart throbbing!
There is one thing that I have been waiting eons to do! And now that I’ve finally made this happen, I would like nothing more than to share it with you.
Along with being a HUGE fan of fall, I’m also a HUGE fan of Christmas. In particularly, Christmas trees. I’m a bit obsessed. And since purchasing a Balsam Hill tree, I’ve been wanting to keep it up year round. So, if you’ve ever wanted to keep your tree up during the whole year and decorate it with the changing seasons/holidays, keep reading!!
I’m so pleased with the end results and the never ending beauty of a Balsam Hill tree. Before purchasing everything for the tree, I first started with the ribbon. The timeless fall flannel pattern on the ribbon completely gets me in the mood for a hot cup of tea.
Once the ribbon was chosen, I made my way through the floral department of Michaels to find all the reds and oranges I could get my hands on. Finding the Bronze ornaments were a bit tricky outside of the holiday season. These were found on Amazon for a steal. They came in a plastic circular container, ready to be hung. It was super simple, though placement was a bit tricky. To place the ornaments evenly, I went from the top to bottom and by the time I made it to the middle, I began placing them near the stem of the tree to fill in the holes.
The burlap bow topper was already in my ribbon collection waiting to be made, just for this occasion. It was a toss up between the burlap and a pumpkin ribbon that matched the color of the ribbon throughout the tree, so I went with the burlap for more contrast.
It is amazing what a little TLC, ribbons and florals can do to a faux tree. If you haven’t heard of Balsam Hill (and if you watch Hallmark, you should have by now), check out their amazing products. Yes, they can be on the expensive side, but the quality of the tree is infinitely worth it! Wait for a good sale and check out Affirm for payment options, too! This makes it a little bit more affordable.
