You guys, I'm losing it.  I set up our Thanksgiving Table yesterday, photographed it, and sat down to edit photos last night.  As I did I realized that I didn't even put glasses on the table and left off a few other little things I wanted to include! #fail  It felt like something was missing all along, but the glasses never dawned on me.  I almost went ahead and posted it anyway, but just couldn't do it!  So, I'm putting the finishing touches on it and will post tomorrow, and I'm bumping up the post I originally planned for tomorrow.  Everyone's looking at all of the One Room Challenge reveals today anyway, right?  ;)

Many people are getting a jump on their Christmas decorations already, but even if you're a purist and wait until after Thanksgiving to decorate, we're only a week away!  I was happy with my tree last year, but there are a few tweaks I want to make this year.  I've been storing away ideas in my head and thought I'd share some trees that have been inspiring me.  None of them are short on color!

This photo popped up in my Instagram feed yesterday, and it took my breath away.  All of those vintage ornaments... I'll definitely be adding some of those to my tree thanks to a good estate sale find last month!  It wouldn't hurt to have the Chiang Mai chairs to flank the tree either... ;)

These paper lanterns added to Yvonne's tree are too much fun,

and so are the paper stars on Sarah's tree.

Flocked trees have been all the rage for the past few years and from what I've already seen this year they're not going anywhere.  I haven't had the desire for one in the past, but I might be leaning that direction this year!  Maybe a DIY project?  Has anyone ever done that?  I'd love to hear about it if so!

Even though we just had our entire house decorated for Christmas in July for a week, I'm getting pretty excited to get it out again!  How about you, have you started yet?   I WILL be back tomorrow with my Thanksgiving Table, see you then!

  1. When I see this kind of stuff it makes me wish I had an enormous house so I could put a tree like this in EVERY room!

    1. I was just thinking the same thing yesterday but about normal accessories... I need more room to use everything that I like! ;)

  2. My daughter tried flocking a tree using fake snow and it was a disaster. She said it didn't look pretty and in order to get it thick enough she had to spray a ton and then it wouldn't dry. And the stuff that did dry was powdery and brushed off when adding lights or ornaments. She ended up throwing it away and found a really nice flocked tree at Walmart. Maybe there's another product you could try besides fake snow. Good luck - the flocked trees sure are pretty.

  3. I wonder how many of us would not have noticed the glasses were missing?
    Whoooaa....slow down life!

    1. Probably not many would notice, but it bothered me! It turned out for the best, anyway. I did a little more tweaking and I like it much better now!

  4. Jennifer! I'm loving the flocked trees myself!! Blogger Kelly Nan did a post a few years back about doing a DIY flocked tree, you should check it out!! love your blog the most!! All of your colorful decor / decorations are amazing and i always look forward to your new posts!

    1. Thank you Jessica! Thanks for the tip, I'll check out Kelley's post for sure!
