It’s a Tree-Tastrophy!

Mom and dad started taking down my Princess tree. I told them there’s snow outside it’s still Christmas! What were they thinking? As you can see it didn’t go over too well.

Adora putting the ornaments back on.

O Tiarabaum, O Tiarabaum

So this year I let my daughter do the tree. She is going through a Disney Princess phase right now so we had fun with it. I always have a real tree but decided to do a white one for the theme this year. We got cheap ornaments .. a mix of candy, birds, jewels at Big Lots and Walmart ($4 a box). I went to Michael’s and bought a Disney poster with plans to cut the faces out to put in wooden frames. We got the frames at Michael’s too (3.99) and painted them. The most pricey part was the actually Princess ornaments. I found them at CVS and Hallmark. They ranged from $7.99 to $19.99 a piece. Must admit.. they’re real cute!

I bought a star but it wouldn’t stay up– so I grabbed an extra tiara from her birthday party and we crowned the tree!

Oh Christmas Tree

We’ve got it up and the baby has surprisingly been great about it. No broken ornaments, no eating the tree, no tampering with lights…. an occasional peek at a present.. that’s it.

Oh Christmas Tree

One of my favorite things in the world is decorating the tree. It was a difficult task this year as I recover from surgery so I got a little help. Denise Nguyen owns Great Falls Florist. She along with the wonderful Tamara helped beautifully decorate my tree. It came out more beautiful than I imagined! It’s a throw back to a vintage Christmas. Older ornaments, lots of paper, blown glass, real glass and of course some glitter. Apparently it created a spark in the air.. see pic below of parents, Ren and Chin. I don’t see mistletoe anywhere, do you?
