2014 Christmas Tree

Can you believe Christmas is next week?! The thought of it sends my heart racing. Well our 2014 Christmas tree is finally up. This year my tree is all about back to basics - I amalgamated a pool of ornaments I liked and got to work, with no particular theme or color variations in mind. 

This is probably the last year I am going to use a faux Christmas tree. Next year I am going for a real one - not only do they smell good but their shapes and forms also look so much more lively and organic. A faux fir tree looks so rigid and formal, not the type of the look that excites me any more. 

The jumping-off point of this year's Christmas tree is this blue glass ornament my best friend Jessie made for me. It's heavy so I had to hang it pretty low on the tree otherwise if it slips off the tree, it will shatter. 

Each ornament has its memories and sentimental value. 

You are not going to believe this but I found this wreath at Dollarama! $2 never looked this good! 

This is our foyer now fully decorated for Christmas and holiday season. 

The Paperwhite Narcissus Ziva bulbs I planted three weeks ago are on track to bloom around Christmas. It has been a very rewarding experience to witness the Paperwhite from sprouting to budding. This is definitely a holiday tradition I will be keeping. 

Next up is our holiday table setting and dining room decor. Until then, stay warm and merry!
