Elsa Tree Topper

With Adora loving Elsa and Bob loving Olaf we decided on a Frozen Christmas tree this year. We started at the top. A doll, a snowflake ornament and a little Krazy glue and voila… Elsa crowns the tree. Took me 5 minutes!

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.

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!

Tree Time: Decorations picked!

I’m obsessed with Christmas. My favorite music is Christmas music (I’m listening to Josh Groban’s NOEL CD right now!).  With my new condo, new baby on the way and new outlook on life I’m so excited to decorate our family’s real ‘first tree’. I’m going to get a real fir– pickin’ it out this week. Meanwhile, I’ve already started working on my vision. Lotsa silver and gold.. vintage ornaments… old glass… and old paper.What’s your theme this year?
