Christmas Cheer Link Party {The Christmas Tree}

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Christmas Tree edition of our Christmas Cheer Holiday Link Party!

We are getting closer to Christmas!  Do you have your tree up and decorated yet?  In our house, the tree goes up the day after Thanksgiving and comes down around the start of the new year.  I so enjoy having the tree lit at night and really look forward to having it around each year.

Our tree is lit with white lights, filled with lots of gold, silver, and amber balls, as well as a few special sparkly ornaments. 

The owl ornament is a nod to my grandma, who loves owls.  Ours was found at Pier 1. 

Some of the lights are still (remember last year) out on our faux tree:)  Do you spy me and the tripod in the glass ornament?!

The “Our First Christmas” ornament is to the left.

Let's be friends!

And a little bit of bokah:) 

I can’t wait to see YOUR Christmas trees!!  Link up below!  I will be featuring some of your trees next week:)

    Gorgeous, Megan! I love the placement of your tree and all the silver – I did mostly silver on my "mommy tree" too. Happy Holidays!

    I haven't published my big tree yet, so I hope it is ok, that I have linked my little special bedroom tree. It is dear to me since it is a special little memory tree.
    Thank you for the party! I'll have so much fun looking at all the trees.
