-- Christmas Tree 2011 --

After the "Great Tree Debaucle" of early December 2011 where our freshly decorated real Balsam Fir tree decided it would prefer to have a little lay down on the floor...



We have redecorated and even placed a couple wrapped gifts below.  Wanna see?



We always pick up a new ornament when we go on vacation.  This fall we visited Charleston, Savannah and Atlanta so here is one of our newest ornament additions...


Love how the tree looks when its all aglow.  The smell of the real balsam fir is quite possibly one of the best things ever :)


Here's to hoping she stays upright this time!!

I'm linking this post up with Kim's Dare to DIY Party from the Newlywoodwards where everyone is sharing their ways of Decking the Halls...

Your tree looks great! Our tree fell over last year, and broke some of my favorite ornaments.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today; I'm your newest follower :)

This looks so pretty. I love how full the tree is. We don't have a real tree, but I totally understand the appeal. Yours is beautiful. (Especially upright.)

Thanks so much for linking up to Dare to DIY!

Beautiful! I can't believe the first time it fell over!! How sad. I tried to add ribbon to our tree like this, but mine looked like garbage so I had to take it off. I love how yours curls. So pretty!!

Your tree is truly a sight to behold! So gorgeous. I would have cried when it fell over! Maybe someday we'll have to get a real tree, but for now we're faking it. :)

That is one big beauteous tree! (both horizontally and vertically ;) I love the color scheme and the ribbons. And I'd probably love the smell too but I have to rely on candles to give me that aroma since I'm allergic. Womp wommmmp.

We also buy a new ornament from each our trips we take. I love that tradition. I also LOVE those ribbons! So fun! I think it would drive my cat nuts though

Your tree is stunning!!! I noticed my real tree "ate" our ornaments, so you must have quite the collection for your tree to look so decorated!!! We don't have too many (this is our first Christmas) but I have high hopes for a tree that looks just like yours in years to come. We also started collecting ornaments from our travels. Our Hawaii honeymoon ornament being the first!

I'm a new follower. I look forward to reading more of your posts!!
