I’m Sharing My Girly Christmas Tree :-)

Hello everyone I took a little break during the Thanksgiving Holiday but I’m back to work and decorating for Christmas.

I decided to get a new smaller tree this year so I went to Wal Mart and bought a white tree about six foot in height, with lights, for only $39!
On Black Friday I waited until after lunch (thinking I would miss the crowds Ha) and met up with my friend, Penny, at Hobby Lobby.  I wanted a pink, silver, and white tree so we proceeded to look for silver and pink ornaments, ribbon, and other trimmings.

Here are some of the decorations we found, some I purchased at the end of season sales last year, and a couple I picked up at Wal Mart.

A butterfly brooch would be nice

Of course we have to have a handbag Princess

Every girly girl needs a ribbon

A pretty cross necklace wouldn’t hurt

Some angelic music

Of course you’ve gotten all dressed up so there must be dancing

A little white haired man bearing gifts is always nice

And for good luck…

A little elf mouse!  I do not know if this is from the German side of my family, the French side, or if somewhere along the way someone just made it up, but we always had a mouse on the tree for good luck.  Anyone else ever heard of this tradition?

Next I used about four rolls of silvery ribbon to drape down the tree and to make a large bow topper. (Please ignore 1980’s wall paper border and painted paneling lol)

And finally to finish off our girly tree what else but a pink tutu!

Unfortunately I have not done any shopping for gifts yet but I did have this pretty Paris box that seem just perfect until I get a few gifts all wrapped up and under the tree.

I’m not through with my tree it still needs some more color and I will continue to add to it over the next few days.

After looking at this pictures I can see some areas that need tweaking.  Oh, well right now I am painting and will share a finished piece of furniture tomorrow.

Hope you enjoyed my girly tree until next time happy decorating.


I'm sharing with these lovely ladies parties.
