Well this week officially kicked off all the holiday posts, so I hope you are loving them and don’t miss Tuesday’s post with the launch of my “Favorite Things” virtual party! It’s chalk full of the things I truly USE and LOVE. This year I am honored to be a part of 12 Bloggers of Christmas with Balsam Hill and sharing a metallic and glass Christmas tree with modern touches.
You see, this year is extra special because this it’s our first Christmas in our new home. The scale of this home is much grander then our last home, which means I really
needed wanted a larger tree to fill the space. You can see my last years Christmas tour here. I am super excited and thankful to be partnering with Balsam Hill for this post, 12 bloggers of Christmas, to showcase our new 12 ft Red Spruce Tree all decked out with glass ornaments and modern metallic bursts.
Shop my Living room furniture
When selecting a tall Christmas tree, always think about the circumference. The taller they get, the wider they are, unless of course you select a slim cut tree. I wanted it to make a statement, just not take up my entire living room! I have to say, the quality of this tree far surpasses any other I have owned (I mean that whole heartedly). It’s rich and full and the branches are so pliable. The authenticity of this tree is truly a sight to behold. I selected the 12ft Red Spruce Prelit Tree, but it comes in several different heights. The tree comes equip with a light pole, which means you don’t even have to hunt down all the light connections when attaching each piece. All you have to do is stick it in the pole and it lights up! AMAZING!
A tall glamorous tree needs to wear an equally glitzy skirt don’t ya think?! I selected the Nicole Miller Platinum tree skirt. The metallic color and pleated edge detail won me over. This tree skirt comes in 3 different diameters, but mine is the 72″ size. I always like to put my own spin on things, even if its just a tree skirt. That’s why I layered the metallic skirt right over a zebra Hyde. Layers add depth and comfort and I love the statement the pair make together.
Shop My pillows and textiles
I chose a mixture of glass, crystal, and metallic ornaments to create a classic look with a bit of a contemporary twist. I think the combination is interesting and beautiful all at the same time. My favorite piece on the tree (although hard to choose) are these glass teardrop ornaments. Each glass ornament is embellished with glitter and pearlescent beads that reflect light, providing beautiful sparkle. The teardrop ornaments come in small and large sizes – I ordered the large.
Of course I had to get the french country themed ornaments as well – being the style of my entire home. They remarkably resemble the sophistication of classic french design. I got the jumbo size and they come in a package of 12 assorted glass ornaments of all different shapes. You’ll find ornaments of clear glass, etched glass, ombre, foil, and crackled design. They are heavy, but O so pretty!
The modern bursts of gold add a bit of the an unexpected element to the tree. I always love a good mix of contemporary and classic pieces (which you’ll see throughout my home). This Nicole Miller ornament set is so chic and adds gold metallic surprises all over my tree. I really love the ornaments with pearls!
Shop other season items
Every tree needs a topper and this Double sided stardust adds a big WOW finish. There are so many gorgeous ways to top a Christmas tree, but I am partial to a star. The symbolism flows deep for me through this Christmas season. I love the way it shines at night and stands so tall in the room. The incandescent lights glimmer through the capriz shell creating the perfect golden halo. This Star comes in 2 sizes, mine is the 14″.
After I have found the perfect home for each ornament on the tree, I always fill in the blanks with ribbon. I wove this 3″ tinsel ribbon throughout my entire tree and finished with a few pinecone picks. Adding picks that burst outside the silhouette of the tree add the perfect amount of imperfect charm. The Iced pinecone picks are just the right amount of rustic charm with a touch of glitter.
I hope I have left you inspired to create a glitzy metallic tree that your whole family can enjoy. Please read on below for more information about how you can experience the full tour of the 12 Bloggers of Christmas with Balsam Hill this Christmas season!
