Happy holidays! This year I wanted to do something different with my Christmas decor. I've always wanted to do a White Christmas theme and decided to use that for my design ideas.
Using a harmonious blend of white, silver, gold and blue silver as my color palette, I named my theme French Winter Wonderland! Now, for all the juicy details as to where I bought everything to pull this look together!
On the cover photo I ordered the square silver tray from Amazon. The glass vase came from Target and the beautiful baubles are from the Sugar Paper Holiday Collection at Target (refer to my earlier post on those products). The white glittered garland I got from Michael's (on sale 60% off!). The holiday pillows on my sofa I got from Target and Michael's last year and on clearance! I put together that look for less than $50.
The scene below is my Woodland Creatures theme. I put everything together for less than $25. The wooden box was already painted and I got it, as well as the pine cones and greenery, from Michael's at 70% off. I already had the silver reindeer and snow (from Target) and the tree and little animals are also from Michael's. It's so easy to create these small scenes without breaking the bank.
I love my coffee bar! I had everything here already except the coffee mug and white ceramic house, and they came from Target. That little white house was in the Target Dollar Spot area and they sold out very quickly! I called four Target stores within 10 miles of me and they were all sold out and no one knows if they are going to get anymore in stock. The house was $3 and the mug was $4.99. That round tray and the canisters are from HomeGoods and the stack of mugs are from Pier 1!
Okay so here is the main attraction! My trio of flocked trees and I call this my French Winter Wonderland! It was a little hard to get all 3 trees completely in the pic, but you get the idea. It's amazing how these trees take on different looks throughout the day with the natural light. I took this picture close to sunset.
You see how the trees look bright white during the daylight?! I bought all of the trees from Michael's. Two 7ft slim flocked trees and one 7.5ft fuller flocked tree. The ornaments came from Target, Michael's and Ballard Designs. The boxes under the trees are from the Sugar Paper for Target line, and you can purchase them under Shop That Look as soon as I post the links, so be on the lookout for those!
The key to a "full looking" tree (as I like to call it) is layering! Start with your lights (if you don't have a pre-lit tree), then use ribbon or garland. Next, look for gaps or spaces within the tree. That is where you'll add big ornaments to fill in those holes. Next, start adding your other ornaments as well as any pics to add character. Use your more decorative ornaments on the outer branches to make a grand visual statement. Easy, right! No matter your decor style, always do what speaks to you! Happy Holidays!
