So this past weekend manfriend and I went on the daunting task of #1 getting him a new tie at Macy’s for his Holiday party and #2 picking up our very first Christmas Tree together. Well Macy’s was a breeze compared to finding a fake, green Christmas tree of the 6- 7 feet variety. They were all sold out everywhere!
We would have gone the real tree route but we have a pretty curious cat that has been known to climb into the real Christmas tree, proceed to knock said tree over and with it spilling real pine needles EVERYWHERE. You can see why we had some reservations about the real tree (ie we still don’t trust her from years past).
I had my heart set on a Christmas tree this past weekend. The more places that we went and didn’t find one, the more downtrodden that I got. Then manfriend was like, do you just want to get a white one? I had not eeven given that a thought because I was almost POSITIVE that he wouldn’t want a non-traditional tree. Wellp, I was wrong and to home we went with a white tree, red and white lights and a renewed “in the air there is the feeling of Christmas” hop in my step.
Now we had some very specific ornaments that we picked out on our trip to CO over Thanksgiving. So we obviously had those in mind whilst thinking of our decorating goodness. See ornaments below:
Anyhoo, We decorated our Christmas tree and all was good with the world… until I decided that a skirt must be made for our wonderous Christmas tree, using some of the totally awesome Alexander Henry fabric I purchased from the lovely Pink Chalk Fabrics.
