i am a little behind updating what i did at the dutch house to decorate for christmas. i really wanted to get a tree that was small enough to fit inside the galvanized metal tub i bought at michael's. i looked and looked, and finally found a fraser fur for a reasonable price (over $50 for a tree is ridiculous)!
as you can see, it was the perfect fit! i purchased the smallest tree stand i could find, which is for a tree under five feet. however, if your tree is skinny enough it can be up to six or seven feet! good to know.
my mom bought me a $10 plain wreath at market basket, which i jazzed up with some baked pinecones (pop in a 250 degree oven for 20 minutes and it dries up the sap!), fake berries i had left over from my thanksgiving dinner, and plaid ribbon i bought at target.
a pot of the baked pinecones. i bought the cream pot on sale at a garden nursey for $10 over thanksgiving!
my gold reindeer from the wishbasket standing in a platter with fake snow. you can see the christmas tree in the background!
my pottery barn stocking with the letter K ornament
the other pot. i filled a vase with greens that i found around the property and put it inside to give my bedroom a little christmas tree!
