With a lot of thought and going back and forth, I decided that this year I would bite the bullet and purchase an artificial tree. I have had a real tree every year since I was born, so it was definitely a tough decision to make, but now that the tree is up, I couldn’t be happier.
The best thing is that this baby only cost us $20 vs. the $40 I usually spend every year on a real one. 🙂
So without further ado….
C and my first Christmas tree together in ‘our’ home. 🙂
The one downside of this new tree was that sadly, my favourite star was just way too heavy. So I used the next best thing I could think of. A paper ornament that I actually made on a whim this past week after reading this post on How About Orange. I made the ornament as per the directions and then spray painted it with some metallic silver paint for an extra little touch.
I think it works just fine. 🙂
And just for fun… here’s our whole little ‘Christmas Corner’ of the living room.
Just what I hoped it would be – nice and cozy.
