It is official...Christmas is just a week away! Most of you have probably already taken the time to put up a Christmas tree and all of your other Christmas decorations. (I started decorating 3 weeks ago!) This is the first year I was able to decorate the Christmas tree as a wife! I am sure you can imagine my excitement. Our small tree is the perfect size for the the corner of our living room, and luckily there is still room for all of the presents to fit around it. (Trust me...if the tree were any bigger presents wouldn't be an option!)
Decorating the Christmas tree is something I enjoy doing every year. When I was a child I would get to pick out a new ornament before Christmas, and as we decorated the tree each November we would look back at all of the ornaments that we collected.
Dane and I don't have an impressive collection of sentimental ornaments ro decorate our tree. I am sure that we will begin to collect those when we start having children, but this year I wanted my tree to have a theme: rustic!
Dane already had a great variety of rustic ornaments thanks to his wonderful mother!
We also had some shimmery, little red ornaments that added a needed pop of color!
Unfortunately, we did not have a tree topper, but that just meant that we could add our touch to the tree that was already great! We found this pretty silver star at Wal-Mart.
I also got a few simple, silver ornaments for the tree, and I used a couple of those to make these fun rustic ornaments!
Dane and I are so excited about spending this holiday season as husband and wife. We love our cute little tree and I am sure that it will evolve as we celebrate more Christmases, (I also need to find new stockings at some point...or make my own!) but for now we are very happy with our little tree and the special ornaments that decorate it!
