Our Christmas Tree Inspired by Houzz

Houzz is still my most used app especially now that we’re in full on Christmas decorating mode over here. I can’t get enough of Christmas (I have 4 trees!) and since it’s Harper’s first one I want it to be extra special. For our big tree in the living room, I wanted to do something different this year so I browsed pics on Houzz to get inspired. This was our inspiration below:

And ours which took us like 5 hours last night.

It still isn’t finished, we need to fill in a few gaps and make the edges tighter so you can see sharper contrasts, but I really like it. We did a row of traditional ornaments in the center that you can’t see very well in this mediocre IPhone photo, but I like the idea of incorporating these old family ornaments I have into a more modern backdrop.

Downlad the Houzz app which isn’t just for home decorating. They also have some great articles about entertaining, how to set up a room to create a better flow for a party, and table centerpiece ideas that are easy and gorgeous.
