Since we live in LA, a fresh cut tree is out of question..too expensive! So, we went with an artificial tall slender tree! It was odd at first putting it together..but we are really happy with the results! Here are some pictures from our evening!
Kingston loves his new Christmas stocking! No, Little Man, those are not real bones!
We have a mantle...so we purchased two stocking holders...they were 50% off at Michaels! The green stockings are from Target. The green matches perfect!
Target had a little bling to add...of course I couldn't say no!
Popped some pictures into the stocking holder frames! This picture was taken after our appointment with the florist!
The tree looked silly...then after some time..(I couldn't' believe how long it took) it started to look like a real tree.. Still had some work to do with positioning the branches....I love the height of the tree!
Throwing on some lights! We got the LED lights..They are a bit bigger..and brighter! Plus they are energy efficient! 9.99 for a box...but worth it. You can kinda see the tree skirt..that was also purchased at Target. Simple light brown with white snowflakes.
We plan on decorating the tree this weekend when my parents fly into town. At least I will be able to continue this tradition with my family!
So, who-else is having their First Christmas this year?!
