Country Christmas Tree

It took a few days (lack of preparation on my part), but the tree is finally up and The Croakery decorations are finished.

This is Thor, A Norfolk pine he lives at the top of my stairs

The glow from the lights catches my eye as I walk past the foot of the stairs

 

I went for a palette of icy blue and frost white for the banister

I used snowflake tinsel, mini glass baubles, paper cut out doves and...

 

origami cranes, all strung with ribbon

 

The tree came from a local tree farm, cut down by my own hands. It's a spruce so has prickly needles

 

Finally up ready for Christmas

 

White suede doves are strung together on icord

and spell out the word peace

 

 

I ended up with classic theme of red and white for the tree

 

Oversized shiny silver jingle bells gleam in the twinkling lights

A pail filled with candy canes dangles from a branch for guests with a sweet tooth
