If you guys know one thing about me … it is that I love some bling!  In fact – I need to make a search label for the blog that just says bling!  So I think it should come as no surprise that my Christmas tree is a gigantic mesh of shine, sparkle and glitter!  Behold – I give you my tree! 


Isn’t it purdy!!  It makes me smile every time I look at it!! 


I have had most of the red ornaments for a while – one of those big containers of ornaments from Target.   I adore the big ol sparkly snowflakes!!! 


I love how they pop just as well as the silver ones in the lowlight too! 


The silver ones I picked up last year – love the sparkly star!


I also have my handmade rope ribbon ornaments that I made last year.  You can check out the tutorial if you would like to make some of these for yourself!! 


I also just LOVE the little mirrorball ornaments!  Had to give you guys a close up of those!! 


Oh and my tree topper?  That is actually one of my pew bows from our wedding!!  I love that I have kept it and that it was a part of another special day for us!!  That and I can’t make a bow to save my life and the ones that my MIL made were so beautiful!!!


So here is one final shot! 


Ah!!  I love it!!  I hope you guys do too!!  What does your tree look like?  Do you go for traditional colors or more contemporary ones?  Is yours full of bling and sparkle too?

Your tree is beautiful! Our tree has ornaments I have made through the years, some in felt and appliqued, some newer ones sparkly. I also have the things our kids and grandkids have made, chains, mostly, beautiful in the eyes of Nana and Poppop. Our tree is full of memories, along with the lights that don't come off, hurray!

I was gonna hunt you down @ Sarah's, (knew you'd be there too ;) but I got you by email 1st thing this am. Yay!

Love the red & silver. I don't think I've ever done red & silver, which I can't believe because I used to do soooo many trees. Yours is just gorgeous! Love all the bling!

And it's okay to love bling! Me - give me ribbon. Lots and lots of ribbon. [sigh] It almost makes me want to do weddings again. Almost.

I love that you use a pew bow for your tree topper. I always wondered what people did with those things after the ceremony. :)

Bonnie@Creative Decorating said... @ December 9, 2010 at 2:01 PM

Just stopping by to say Merry Christmas and everything is just beautiful and festive!! The tree looks great!!

Erin @ Domestic Adventure said... @ December 9, 2010 at 7:44 PM

Looks so good! I definitely need some bling...I feel like it is taking me forever to build up our collection of ornaments!

Karen said... @ December 10, 2010 at 8:34 AM

So pretty Jess! My mom does an all red and silver tree and I've always loved the way it looks. Love your addition of white and the very important element of bling!

Have a great weekend.

Beautiful tree! I love the mirror ornaments too. I clicked over to your rope tutorial and think maybe I'll do those with the kids at the YMCA (I work with the 6+ group in childcare) -- I figure some Styrofoam shapes and holiday yarn might work! Thanks for visiting my blog. . .I've enjoyed clicking through yours. Hope you might get some of that snow everyone is talking about this weekend!

Hi there~ Love your tree- it is covered in gorgeousness!! I just blogged about my living room tree last week and it is pretty much covered in bling too. Your tree is beautiful- well done!

Kitty Deschanel said... @ December 11, 2010 at 9:15 AM

I love your color scheme! Really, I just want to sneak over and "borrow" your tree for my own house. You could have it back after Christmas! ;)

If you get a chance later today, I'd love for you to stop by to link up to my Not "Baaad" blog hop :)
