A Tree For Me

To my surprise, my guys have completely embraced my pink and green living room. They like it so much that we've been spending a lot more time in there and decided to put our live christmas tree that room. 
So, I thought I'd push the envelope a little more in the girly direction and this year I got a slim tinsel tree from Target which I've decorated with lots of purple and white bird ornaments complete with feather tails (Michael's $1 bin). I also draped it in pearl garland as any jewelry designer is apt to do :) 
The stand that came with the tree wouldn't fit in the urn I wanted to use for the stand. 
So, I stuffed the urn with newspaper to get it to stand then covered it with that good ole white burlap I use for everything. 

Remember my ikat pillows I recently added to the sunroom?  The birds go perfectly -- it's all coming together people! :) 

This sparkly girly tree for me is in the corner of the sunroom where we also spend a lot of time -- we HAD to have another tree right?

I'm still in the process of decorating the house, so I'll be back with more later.

This color scheme is so great. I have yet to start my holiday decorating. I know it will be very minimal.

Purple-liscious! Love that girly whirly bird slim tree.
My decoration will be minimal too - just feeling the need to have lights!!!

Very pretty!
I'm on the fence about the trees this year. We are going to be away so I'm thinking I won't bother with our usual 4 trees (I know) but perhaps just one...

Julie, I can see you're having fun with this new look ! So nice your family has embraced the new look, my poor husband is the only male in this household and grew up with 3 sisters so he has resigned himself to girly stuff! Can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve - I know I will love it!

The wee purple birds look so happy in their with their pearls and ikat pillows - lovely! No tree for us this year, we're off to new Zealand but I must do something to decorate....you've got me thinking.
