So yesterday I shared our downstairs decor and today I thought I'd share the upstairs! I ordered a tree from Amazon and was so excited to do a whole "black, white and burlap" thing up here. I had Mason and Griffin with me and they went BANANAS over all the cute and colorful ornaments at Target and so I scrapped my idea and ran with theirs - and I couldn't love it more :)
The garland was plain (I picked it up at Joanns) and so I wired in some lights and a bunch of the colorful ornaments.
A couple of cute little Free People stockings and the kids countdown calendar.
The tree is seriously so fun. There are a ridiculous number of ornaments on it and multiple ornaments on branches and groups of colors and everything that would typically drive me bananas :)
I have a bunch of Christmas pillows that I was going to put on the couch downstairs, but I didn't love all the red down there so I piled them all on the couch up here :)
And while I was snapping these pictures upstairs there was a dance party happening downstairs :)
I had a few extra frames left over from the gallery wall in Griffin's old room so I ordered a few prints of our Santa pictures and hung them behind the tree.
The tree "skirt" is actually a blanket from IKEA that used to go on the ends of the boys beds.
I found the felt ball garland at HomeGoods for a STEAL considering each piece is 12 feet long - but I know that West Elm and Land of Nod have similar ones as well. I scoured the internet for this exact version and couldn't find it. SORRY! (I linked to similar versions at the end of the post)
The bucket under the table holds a bunch of Christmas books we've collected over the years.
The boys each have a little tree in their rooms, but neither one of their spaces were even remotely clean this weekend when I snapped pictures. So I may share their trees at some point - but not today :) In Griffin's room I put a little tree and "Santa Claus is coming to town" sign on her shelf...
And a little flocked tree on her dresser.
She decorated her tree herself... can you tell? :)
The tree skirt is actually one of her Matilda Jane skirts :)
And one more little tree in her bathroom.
So. Much. Fun. It's A LOT, but the kids ADORE it and are so so proud :) This is the first time I've tried the little scrolly-deal so hopefully it works, but you can find a lot of the ornaments and such that we used below.
Happy Wednesday, Friends!!!
