A Feathery and Silver Christmas Tree

Our home has been through quite a transition this past year.

I didn't realize to what extent until I went through the blog post from last year concerning our Christmas decorations. Our home now feels completely different... especially with this year's Christmas decor. The biggest change was eliminating the color teal from not only our home, but also from the Christmas design. [Not counting the teal in kiddo's room.] It provides the punch of red to really stand out.

I'll save the Christmas Edition Home Tour for later in the week.
But, right now I want to share with you our Christmas tree!



Last year we got the new pencil thin silver tinsel Christmas tree due to space constraints. This tree takes up much less space, but it packs a big punch! Especially with the new look.

When I found these red peacocks.... I was filled with instant inspiration!
I knew exactly how I wanted to design the look of this year's Christmas tree.

I utilized red poinsettias in the past on our trees for a punch of red to bring the whole look together. And I thought the peacocks would be a great modern and glam approach to create the same effect. I think it works nicely at bringing the whole design together while creating a punch of color and interest,

The rest of the ornaments are all silver, gold, white and mirrored. 

One constant on all of my trees has been the growing collection of cross ornaments.  
But, this year, I did add some new ornaments to the mix. For example: this Eiffel Tower ornament which was given to us by my lovely mom. It brings a smile to my face.

I love it when ornaments do that... don't you?

The most challenging component of the tree was the topper.

I kinda go all out on our tree toppers.

This year, I added ostrich feathers!!!!!

And.... a lot of glitz, glam and sparkle!

I had so much fun decorating! 

But, it got the best of me. I spent all day Sunday on the couch.... sick.
I am quite thankful for my hubby who made me tea and brought me soup to help my recovery.

And... the tree was a joy for me to gaze upon between my catnaps.

And even though my tree is not made from Junkers' Materials... I've linked to the Christmas Junkers Unite Link Party, cuz I love the people over there! And Ivy and Elephants.
