The Christmas Tree

Hey there, friends.  I hope you’re all having a great day.  Today I thought I would share the Christmas tree since I haven’t done that yet!  My mother-in-law typically puts up two big trees — one in the library/dining room and one in the Brick Room.  This year she opted for a little less decor than usual, so we’ve got one tree up in the Brick Room.  Which makes sense, because I’ve mentioned before that on Christmas Day, this is the room where most all of the festivities take place.  The rest happens in the kitchen.  🙂

 It’s a pretty tree, with lots of red and gold, which goes perfectly with the decor in this room.  And look!  You get a rare Kuma sighting.  🙂

We’ve sort of got a red, black, and white theme going on this year with those presents under the tree.  MacKenzie Childs-inspired!

I love the birds on the tree.  And there are quite a few red Santas, too — all different from one another.

 There is also no shortage of feathers and mesh ribbon on this tree, either.

Here’s the tree with the lights on.  At night it is gorgeous.  When you drive up into the driveway, it is visible from the windows outside.  A beautiful sight to come home to!

 Here is the fireplace in the same room.

 This is the same garland that goes up every year.  That swagged red tassel is my favorite part — it is beaded!
