We never miss the Nutcracker! My niece has been a cast member for over a decade now and the living room battle scene is hands-down my favorite part of the entire production. Even my oldest son squeals with excitement when the Mouse King raises his sword. The timeless quality of Balsam Hill’s new line of home decor reminds me of the classic tale and its breathtaking scenery. Yesterday we raved about the ease of set up with Balsam’s Flip Tree. Today we want to shine a light on the BH Balsam Hill Fir that currently stands tall in our Great Room. It never fails to be the conversation piece of every gathering.
Of course you can’t talk about a tree without talking about presents. This year we decided to make our very own larger-than-life DIY toy soldiers using just cardboard boxes, construction paper, and gift wrap. As luck would have it, the box that holds the Sprays was the perfect size for our gift. The dimensions of the boxes made for perfectly tall and skinny upright soldiers. We made stately uniforms out of solid gift wrap and cut their faces and hats out of construction paper. Just like that, our presents are safely guarded until Christmas morning!
