We just wrapped up decorating for Christmas last week! So it’s time to share how we have decked our halls this season. And for the first time, we decorated a just little bit in the kitchen with some small ceramics and bottle brush trees.
Long time readers of the blog will know my passion for aluminum Christmas trees, and that this little pink tree is actually just the top half of a seven foot pink one I scored back in 2012. Pretty genius, right? Since acquiring a six foot green one 2015, we decided to just put up part of the pink one, especially because it is a time consuming process to put up and take down! The pink tree is unique in that it is made up branches of varying lengths to achieve its tapered look, unlike most aluminum trees which have branches of all one length and use holes of different angles to create the look.
We also went through several precautions to keep Colonel Whiskers at bay, and so far it’s worked! So I’m thinking of whipping up a post of how to keep cats away from your precious vintage aluminum trees.
In addition to all of the decor inside, this year we have decorated outside as well! And I hope to share an outdoor post sometime soon!
