Red, White, and Black Christmas Tree
It’s Christmas!!!!! This is the first year in the history of my life that I’ve put up Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving. It’s 2020 and I figure we all need; not a little Christmas, but a lot of Christmas. So I put our tree and our kids tiny trees. If you follow me on Instagram (@katie.mcminn) then you know we’ve remodeled our kitchen. If you’ve seen the TomKat Adventures-Home Edition then you also know when I say we I mean Thomas and I, not contractors. We used contractors sparingly. Sorry I’m off topic, sort of.
When we remodeled we added a huge and completely gorgeous range over our stovetop. Well, when I started to decorate for Christmas I found these frame illustrations one with a camper and one with a pickup truck and Christmas lyrics on each of them. I was so inspired by these cute illustrations that I decided to decorate the tree in red, white, and black this year.
I’ve never done black before and was a little worried about it being too dark. Early one morning, I took a trip to Micheals and found the plaid ribbons, the white sprigs, and the enormous magnolias. I think all the white I used kept the black in check.
Tree Trimming Hints
Always starting with the ribbons or garland.
Add the sprigs and florals.
Add the ornaments.
This year above any other I hope you all truly enjoy the holidays with the people you love.
