12 Days of Christmas Projects and Tours at thehappyhousie.com

Good morning! And welcome to DAY 12 of my Twelve Days of Christmas Series.  Can you believe I have posted a Christmas project or idea for twelve straight days?  I can hardly believe it, and I am tired.  But I still have serious Christmas-on-the-brain so I just may be back with more projects before you know it.

But despite my exhaustion, today I am super thrilled to be sharing my Christmas Tree Decor Style as part of the My Home Style Christmas Tree Hop hosted by Stephanie from Casa Watkins.  If you have “hopped” over from A Designer at Home, then Welcome!!  {Start HERE if you are new to my blog or head HERE if you want to learn more about me!}.  At the end of this post I have the links to the rest of the amazing ladies who are sharing the details on their Christmas trees this week, so there is a lot more to see when you are done here!

I would describe our Christmas tree style this year as Rustic Natural & Blue Lake Cottage/Coastal

I am a big fan of blue at Christmas.

Well, actually, I’m just a big fan of blue anytime of year.

I know it isn’t some people’s cup of tea… but I pretty much consider blue a neutral.

I mean, it is the colour of the sky, right?  (Well, not around here, these days, that’s nothing but grey grey grey).

Anyhow, I think blue blends beautifully with whites and rustic and natural materials, as well as with other hits of Christmas colour – like the hits of red that I used in our living room this Christmas.  {take the full Living & Dining Room tour here}

To create this tree I used our blue and white ornaments from seasons past, and mixed in some new more rustic ornaments that I made or purchased, in addition to finishing it off with some beautiful thick burlap ribbon that I picked up at Michaels.

I’m loving our Rustic Natural and Blue tree this year.  Does it have a lake cottage/coastal feel to you?

Hits of white are always a beautiful balance to the blue and natural/rustic ornaments too…
