We’ve had a flocked tree for three years now and I’m totally hooked on them! It’s the one way we can have a white Christmas in our home since we don’t get snow here. I loved the idea of using blues and greens to complement the mantel garland, and this year the stand sits inside a gray Colonial Mills braided woven basket. It’s our blue and white Christmas tree all decked out for 2012!
I found this beautiful peacock blue ribbon with gold trim for half price at Michaels and couldn’t resist crimping and weaving it through the tree like party streamers.
I also opted for two strings of white globe lights instead of twinkle lights… I think I’ll string them outside when Christmas is over… I ordered them from Novelty Lights a few months ago and they come with real glass bulbs so you have to be careful with them but I love them!
