Oh (faux) Christmas Tree

Yes I did. Call me crazy. I’ve decorated the Christmas tree already. With Thanksgiving running so late this year, I decided “what the heck!” Don’t worry though, it won’t be a pine-needle-less, fire hazard by the holiday. It’s an artificial tree sent to me by Tree Classics. I’m super impressed with the quality – it’s hard to tell it’s not real even when you are in the same room. The only thing I miss about having a live tree is the lovely pine scent that fills the house.

I selected the  7 1/2′ classic Fraser tree with clear lights because of it’s narrow profile – great for small rooms. Love that the lights were already on the tree and that they are LED! Assembly took me about 30 minutes from start to finish. I did have to pull in my hubby to put on the top layers though.

This year I went with a crisp white and rich gold color palette for the tree decorations. Tons of white feathers were placed throughout the tree and along the top of the Chinese cabinet. I also added a new new items this year such as the fab faux fur tree skirt (above), owl snowglobe (next to the white peonies above) and felt snowflake ornaments (below) I picked up at West Elm!

    Love that the lights on the tree are LEDs. Energy efficient and easy!

    I’ve had my faux tree for several years now and I love it! Pre-lit and ready to roll! You’ll love it even more next year when you just get it out of storage and start decorating. The scent sticks are a great idea!! I’ll have to look for those. It doesn’t feel like Christmas without that scent.

    This is exactly the route I’m going this year too! Lots of white, lots of feathers with touches of gold. I have an artificial tree too…have you seen the Christmas tree scent stick ornaments sold at Target, JoAnns and probably other stores too?? That’s how I get my Xmas tree scent with out the falling pine needles. =)
