Fa-la-la-la-la… Hi, friends! I have a great giveaway and some tree decorating tips to share with you today! I’ve teamed up with Scentsicles to spread some holiday cheer and to help you on your way in creating your own “dream tree” this season.
I’ve started the holiday decorating early this year because our move is shaping up to take place over our holiday school break. We might be spending Christmas amongst boxes and ordering take-out. So, we thought we’d do it up right one last time here. It’s the perfect time to share some of my favorite tree decorating tips with you since I’m getting a jump on decking the halls this year.
Selecting the right size tree for your room is important. Consider your ceiling height and allow for space to add a topper. Also, narrow rooms are perfect for slim trees. Our room is narrow and our slim pre-lit tree doesn’t feel overwhelming.
If you are decorating with an artificial tree, I have a great find for you! Scentsicles are naturally fragranced ornament sticks that you can hang discreetly in your tree to add that aroma of Christmas. They are made with only the best essential oils.
I’m such a fan of these. I miss that fresh-cut tree smell and by adding Scentsicles to our artificial tree, I have the best of both worlds. Scents trigger fond memories. For me, the aroma of fir brings up childhood memories of cutting down our family tree. Such a great way to add another layer of Christmas to your home!
Layering your ornaments from the inside out of your tree really adds multi-dimensional interest. Also, it helps fill in any gaps or bare spots revealing the trunk. Metallic ball ornaments are perfect for this and bonus–they add extra shine and reflection off the twinkle lights.
One way to add some more texture to your tree decor is to layer up your tree skirts. A fur skirt over a silk skirt is a great mix and adds that festive mood. Get creative and use fabric or table cloths too. You can really mix up the base of your tree.
There’s a few tree decorating tips to get you on your way to creating your own dream tree this holiday season!
Now, here’s a great giveaway for you! Head on over to Scentsicles for a chance to win your very own Dream Tree designed by one of your favorite designers. I’ve curated a tree design for you and I’d love for you to be able to use it in your home! This is a great chance to win a head-to-toe tree design including a pre-lit tree, ornaments, toppers, a tree skirt and more!
I’m going to keep on decorating our home for the holidays here. I hope you enjoyed our first holiday post today. Our home smells amazing right now!!! It’s giving us all the Christmas feels since our moving date is making us celebrate a tad bit early. It’s our last Christmas in Illinois, but we are all ready for our new adventure to begin in Connecticut!
I’m so glad I could introduce you to Scentsicles today! Good luck in the #dreamtreegiveaway too!
