Modern Flocked Christmas Tree

modern flocked christmas tree // @simplifiedbee #christmastree #holidaydecor

My teenage daughter is the first one in our family to pull out the holiday decor boxes and start decorating for the season. She adores having her own tree in her room. However, a large classic green Christmas tree with traditional trimmings wouldn’t have suited her petite teal bedroom or personality. On the search for the perfect tree, I teamed up with Treetopia. They known for delivering the widest variety and highest quality artificial Christmas trees – many which are space-saving! We narrowed it down to the Frozen Fir Flocked Christmas Tree (6′ tall) with a slim profile was just the right scale and design for her bedroom (or any small space for that matter). When trimmed with with pops turquoise, green and silver ornaments the look is chic, youthful and modern. In addition to the pops of color, natural elements – adorable forest creatures, wooden gingerbread houses and gilded pinecones add a touch of whimsy and warmth to the flocked Christmas tree. It’s just perfect! Wouldn’t you agree?

Scandinavian Christmas Style

Have you been busy decking the halls? Truth be told – I haven’t gone crazy this season. I’m not sure if my hesitation to go all out decorating for Christmas is because of all the hectic house construction over the last year or that my holiday style is changing. Over time I’ve been increasingly drawn to the simple style of the Scandinavian Christmas. The style embraces minimalist, rustic and natural elements that I’m loving this season. To show you, I’ve pulled some of my favorite images featuring this Nordic style – all found on my Holiday Decorating Ideas board on Pinterest (yes, still a go to place to organize images and inspiration).

Friday Finds :: Classic Christmas with Garnet Hill

I have to admit that I’m lacking the motivation to decorate our house for Christmas this year. Because the last year has been full of exhausting house renovations, I’ve hesitated to pull out all the holiday decorations, just to put them right back a few weeks later. Do you know the feeling?

However, my mood quickly changed when I recently received the sweetest felt stockings in the mail from Garnet Hill. Part of the Hable Christmas Stocking Collection (now on sale!), the stockings come in a variety of timeless themes and can also be monogrammed for a personalized touch. I love that they are generous in size too – lots of room for Santa’s goodies!
