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!
Have a very Merry Christmas! What is your tree theme this year? You might also like my stovetop potpourri recipe or winter fur wreath tutorial. You can find all of our Christmas tutorials HERE.
