Christmas tree and holiday decorations

We chopped down the Christmas tree and brought it into our home, now all that was left was decorate! My mom, Geof and I spent Friday evening doing just that. After a quick Target run for some new ornaments, we were ready to go.

We went with a blue and silver theme this year and I really love how it turned out. I wanted a bow topper for the tree, instead of the traditional Angel or Star. I read a tutorial online and still wasn’t getting it. Geof came to the rescue and figured it out. I could tell that he was really proud of it because he kept trying to fluff it up and attach it to the tree so that it was as straight as possible.



Here are some of my favorite ornaments

Our monogram from Preppy Paper Girl

Lenox First Home ornamnet to celebrate the first year in our house.

Geof's favorite Phillies World Series 2008 ornament
