One tree down....

My Christmas decorating has been slow going... sigh
I don't know what wrong with me , I'm usually done by now.
But there is nothing like a deadline ( party) to get me in gear.

I got the "antler tree" up and decorated.
This is the husbands favorite tree.
Actually if it was up to him, it would be our only tree.
He has said so many times !

It's just a 31/2-4 foot prelit tree I picked up at the thrift store for $10.
But it is perfect in the corner of the living room.

First, I added more lights, frosted pinecone lights.
Love them !

Then I filled in some of the "blank" spots with flocked evergreen picks.
I may get rid of the red berries yet.
There is something about them I just don't like.

More pinecone ornaments , a small selection of my vintage-look birds , deer ornaments and
Only small ones , cause they are kinda heavy !

See, I may just have to get rid of the red berries !

Then I added the tree topper.
Vintage-look pheasant with real pheasant feathers.
Which you might recognize from a previous post.

I wrapped the base in burlap.
There you have it.
Rustic nature meets glam nature.
What do you think?
Those red berries really need to go right?

Oh and that party I mentioned.
If any of my followers would like to check out the Trailerhood in all her Christmas finery and taste some fabulous wine,
You're Invited !
Just leave a comment and I will email you the details.
