Red, White and Black… A Perfectly Timeless Tree!
I have always LOVED red, white and black as a color scheme! There is just something clean and classic about it; so every year I do a Christmas Tree in this color scheme upstairs in our game room!!
My eyes are dancing!!
Whenever I begin formulating my tree ideas, I focus on two elements: the ribbon and the topper! I know I can fill everything else in if I get those two elements correct!!
I’m not saying for sure, but when I saw this Black Top Hat at Walmart, I may have done a little dance in the aisle :)! I knew the direction I wanted to go! I love the deep black color, the way it shimmers, and it already had an adorable red and white bow! YES!!!
Walmart has THE BEST trees at such great prices! I grabbed this 7.5ft white pre-lit tree (on sale for only $140!) and went to work!
I always like the top of the tree to look like “a celebration”… giggle! By adding these red-sequined tinsel sprays around the top hat, I think it is Mission Accomplished!
OK, I have a confession, I am crazy for buffalo plaid!
Some people love chocolate, I love buffalo plaid! I don’t know what it is about it, maybe something from my childhood that is long forgotten; but whatever it is, it just makes me smile!! So obviously, this black and white buffalo plaid ribbon literally jumped out at me!
On to the Super Fun Part… Ornaments!
I distinctly remember walking through a Walmart about 3 years ago. I wasn’t familiar with the store and I was lost, but at least I was lost in the Holiday section! As I looked up and down the aisles, I’m sure my jaw must’ve dropped! I was shocked! I had no idea Walmart had such adorable holiday decor! I think I bought close to 75 ornaments that evening and have returned back for more treasures every year since! They have a large assortment of Christmas decorations that are great quality and don’t break the bank, which comes in handy with the volume of ornaments I put onto a tree and the number of trees I do! I also love that they offer free 2-day shipping on most orders of $35+!I found a bunch of ornaments that are perfect for our tree!
A mistake easily made is getting too many ornaments in the same size or shape. Be sure you are getting large ones, small ones, and ones in different shapes! I also try to get different textures, if possible!!
I will link all my 2018 favorites below!
Finally… The Tree Skirt!
I love ALL the trees I do every year and I couldn’t possibly pick a favorite; but, I will say, red, white and black is a color scheme I return to every year!! I love it!
I hope you love it too!
