Modern Flocked Christmas Tree

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).

advent calendar 2015 // via @simplifiedbeeHappy December! The first day of the month is always exciting for me, but I’m especially loving this first day of December. It marks the beginning of advent. A count down to Christmas Day. Advent calendars have been a family tradition that I’ve passed down to my own family. This year we even have two advent calendars – one that hangs on the wall that doesn’t have any treats and another my girls talked me into getting at Starbucks  seen above (I’m such a sucker!). Here are some other fun advent calendars to buy or make!

Merry Christmas

DIY alternative Christmas tree

One trend I’ve been noticing this year is the alternative Christmas tree like the one above. Perfect for urban dwellers and folks that won’t be at home over the holidays. I’m not sure if I’ll be trading in my traditional (even if artificial) tree anytime soon, but I’ve come to love the creativity of these alternative holiday trees.

Wishing you and yours a very merry Christmas!
