Balsam Hill Tastemakers Housewalk

In celebration of Balsam Hill’s 10th anniversary, we’ve gathered some of our most seasoned bloggers—our Tastemakers—to share their inspiring designs for the season. Our Tastemakers Housewalk will showcase our bloggers’ Christmas trees decorated with their personally selected Balsam Hill themed ornament set and accessories.

Balsam Hill’s collaboration with bloggers began in 2012 when we invited writers to share their elegant Christmas party essentials with their followers. Since then, we’ve had the pleasure of featuring the beautiful home and holiday designs of many more bloggers through a wonderful series of posts, tutorials, videos, and housewalks. Read This Entry
