Every year I dream of a beautiful buffalo check, woodland Christmas tree. With babies and toddlers at home for the past 6 years, we were in a different stage of life. The tree was always a touch-friendly, free for all that certainly didn’t coordinate or match. By Christmas morning, the top half was the only part of the tree that still had any ornaments. I adored those years and I miss those years, but I’m looking forward to this new stage.
This new stage of life includes my buffalo check, woodland Christmas tree! I just adore how it turned out and our living room feels so cozy now. I opted for a snowy pine artificial tree with berries and pinecones on it. I love how realistic it looks and it’s perfect for my woodland theme! Do you think my family would notice if I just left it up all year?
ALL of the ornaments, ribbon and even the JOY sign are from Big Lots. Who knew that they had such cute stuff, I had to pry myself out of the holiday aisles (and no, this isn’t a sponsored post)! I adore the plaid owls and birds, but I think the cork reindeer are my favorite. They have a really cute driftwood wreath that I want to go back for!
While the big tree is no longer touch-friendly for the kids, I plan on setting up a winter exploration area with pine cones and other things that they can touch and study. I might even put a mini tree in each of their rooms that they can decorate themselves. Since I’m on this buffalo plaid kick, you know I had to order matching Christmas pajamas for the kids. I can’t even stand the cuteness!
