Simple & Elegant Christmas Tree


A Christmas tree dotted with twinkling lights and delicate glass ornaments is always something that brings beauty to a room — but a Christmas tree dressed for a Christmas wedding? Even more enchanting.

In my previous post,  I shared a look at a Christmas table setting with a garland centerpiece…


… and today I am sharing a closer look at the Christmas tree decorated for a wedding. As with the table, I wanted the tree to be simple yet elegant and dotted with shades of shimmering golds, delicate creams, and soft shabby aqua.


The Winter Frost Ornament Set  was perfect.


Each ornament is made out of hand blown glass…


… and some of them are covered in delicate details such as beading, sequins, and glitter.


I love the way they compliment the snowy white branches of the Frosted Fraser Fir perfectly.


A tip when decorating the tree for a full lush look: layer the ornaments within the branches. Place some of the larger ones a little further back in the branches and add a few longer ones on the outer branches.


I like to use a mix of large ornaments, with pretty delicate finials and even a few crystal drops and jeweled crystal sprays and also to keep the colors similar in shade when trying to achieve a more elegant look.


Simple and pretty and a perfect complement for a Christmas wedding to add another sprinkling of magic to an already enchanted day.

    Beautiful as always Courtney. I looove Christmas too! I’m deciding if I want to drag everything out while I still have good light up here to take pictures. The color of those sea foamy green ornaments is just beautiful.
