*everything else is vintage/antique
It’s officially November and while I know we still have Thanksgiving coming up, I’m ready to go full-on holiday mode!! I decorated a bit yesterday just with some little things that were quick and easy to put up. I have mentioned this before but I don’t do a TON when it comes to decorating. However, I do want to make our home this year feel EXTRA festive.
We are going to put up our actual tree next weekend and then our house will be pretty much fully decorated for Christmas! I will wait a bit to do our outside entry, though! I wouldn’t normally decorate THIS early but I want some cheer and this alone was enough reason for me to decorate early!! But also, I have some collaborations that I want to have a holiday-vibe plus I want my general content through the New Year to feel happy and festive and bright, so here we are!!
I just wanted to share this little vignette with you all as it was inexpensive and so easy to set up. Plus, I think it turned out so pretty! I wish I would have done something like this in my apartment as I didn’t really have the space to set up a full Christmas tree! We also just got this piece back in March so this is our first Christmas where this area is decorated which is exciting!
The champagne bucket is from Sasha Nicholas and we got it as a wedding gift. I love it SO much and am so appreciative to have received it. It’s so beautiful and it works year-round as decor but it’s also great to use as a champagne bucket, vase, etc. You don’t have to use this exact bucket (obviously) but basically, think outside of the box for the base of your little tree. Maybe it’s a vintage planter or a cute rattan basket, or a silver punch bowl- basically, anything beautiful will work and it will make the tree mesh in with your own home decor more seamlessly!
The Mini Tree is so cute for the price. It really doesn’t look cheap at all. It does come with lights, but since I was putting mine in a pot, I couldn’t really use the light feature without the cord becoming obvious. However, you could plug it in OR you could buy battery string lights like this. I might do that but I honestly don’t even think it needs lights since I have the lamps there. We’ll see…
I was going to leave the tree blank so it felt ‘clean and simple’ but as soon as I saw these Mini Ornaments I knew I had to go that route. They have a nostalgic vibe and are so beautiful. Worth every penny, in my opinion. Seeing the space without the ornaments and then with really made me realize it was a good choice! 1 box of ornaments was enough to cover 3 sides of the tree. I didn’t do the back but if you want to, you’d probably need a second box. I honestly might order another box just because I want to do a set up like this for years to come- I already broke one ball (I dropped it). Whoops!
I had wanted this Ralph Lauren Book for a while as it is a beautiful book. The cover is Blackwatch plaid so I used it as my excuse to purchase it so I could read it/display it year-round, but specifically in this space for the holidays! It feels festive!
