You know the saying "less is more?" What I've discovered this year is that "more is more" when it comes to decorating a Christmas tree.
(Well, that is unless you want a Charlie Brown tree, and that's the look you're going for, then less is more, because, less is less, right? I'm confused.)
Isn't this one from Sweet Something Design just gorgeous?
Anyway, with our move to the lakehouse, I wanted to go for a more "natural" look with our tree, the problem was: A) we have an artificial tree (around $80 clearance from Target after Christmas sale six years ago,) that is sparse and you can see the individual levels and B) going "natural" can be costly even if you are shopping the sales (i.e. burlap garland runs between $9.99-$11.99 a roll!)
As usual, I decorate on a budget, heck, there isn't even a budget for Christmas decorating, more like I decorate as cheaply as possible.
So back to my story, I put up my tree, trimmed it, had a housewarming party, and hated how it looked, so instead of shopping (Husband would die)
Ahh...that's better. Let's call this "chaotic tree trimming."
I mean we have all sorts of
So how does it look? It looks fantabulous! Well, let's not get carried away...
I think it will do, for this year anyway. ;)
