I wish I could share with you that I was staying up until the last minute last night decorating our Christmas tree. Or that we waited until December. Nope, we’ve been enjoying our tree for almost 3 weeks and it’s been amazing.
There are far worse ways to enjoy a hot cup of coffee in the mornings! We decided that since we have an artificial tree, we’d enjoy it this year and take a good portion of the holiday stress off our hands by decorating early. #bestdecisionever
Grab a hot cup of coffee with me this morning and take a tour of our Christmas tree in our living room. We are excited to have you!

If you’re new to our home,our ceilings are almost 19 feet tall in the living room. We chose a 12 foot tree 3 years ago from Lowe’s to see the larger size would look better in the room than our usual 7.5 foot live Christmas trees. While I’m still not sure if it’s perfect for our space, it’s certainly convenient to pull out of the storage containers each year.
Owen & Aubrey are obsessed with trains. Trains we pass along the rode driving, Thomas the Train movies, and even trains running above our heads in restaurants. If they can find a train, they are in love.
Knowing this, Jordan found this Polar Express Train set from Amazon last year. It’s perfect for the kids since it runs all day and says a few cute sayings. 🙂
We aren’t very specific or fancy when it comes to decorating. Aside from a Target pack of shatterproof ornaments, you’ll find each ornament was gifted to us throughout the years.
Jordan (my husband) & I continue that tradition by making sure each of our little ones receive a new ornament each Christmas!
Since our ornaments stay the same each year, I changed it up by making my own bows. While it was a little bit of a learning curve, I knocked all 36 bows in one evening while watching football. Once I was done, I was convinced it was totally worth the effort.
Now, I’m on a bow extravaganza trying to make a new bow for everything!
I’ve been on a sign kick lately. Can you believe that large wood sign was only $9 at Michael’s? Total steal. I’m not sold on leaving it next to the tree yet. I’m thinking it could look really nice on our faux-mantle.
Recognize that monogram shadowbox? It’s interchangeable for every season. I added in my Christmas-y scrapbook paper and voila! Instant Christmas decoration.
This big basket is full of cozy blankets. While winter hasn’t officially hit Michigan yet, you can bet that you’ll find me in the evenings bundled up!
Thank you so much for stopping by our home today! Please continue on the hop and see the other beautiful Christmas trees from bloggers all over the country!
