Our 2017 Christmas Trees

I am so excited to share our Christmas trees with you today. Our set up overall is very similar to last year in that we have 2 trees!

I know, it’s over the top and very extra, but it makes sense for us. I already own this faux tree – and have had it for 6 years!

Sean’s set on a real tree, but I see no need not to put up both since we already own the fake one. So, we have 2 trees.

Our real Christmas tree is in our front room which has a coastal theme. It really blends in with the decor up there and is a lot of white, silver, and blue.

We used our same sand and sea glass ball ornaments, and white rope garland.

This year we added a lot of sand dollars (found this summer on the beach & dipped in polycrylic to keep them from breaking!) and also some little faux starfish that I painted blue and silver metallic.

We also used our DIY drift wood angel tree topper which I love.

Our second tree, the faux tree, is in the sunroom. To be honest, at six years old (plus some, since I bought it second hand, who knows how old it is) it is looking a little worse for the wear.

But dang are pre-lit trees easy!  We deem this our colorful tree and decorate it with lots of kind of random ornaments. The felt citrus and colored balls I made in 2011 (pre-blog but I retroactively posted about them).

The rest of the ornaments are sort of eclectic and many of them gifts, but some of my favorites are the felt animals which have been collected from West Elm mostly. The topper on this tree is a big blue bow + the bird tree topper that Sean made for us last year!

2 trees seems over the top, but it really makes our home feel festive AF. We are loving it!

Check back in later this week for how we made the DIY tree collar and for details on our holiday mantel!

Both of your trees are pretty in their own unique way. Enjoy them. I'm all for the pre-lit trees too! Visiting from the blog hop.

I love your coastal tree- it is beautiful!! I also love that you have 2 trees- you can never have too many Christmas trees, in my opinion!

The felt citrus ornaments are so unique. Your stockings on driftwood are the bomb! Love your pretty setup. Kim
