Trimming Our Trees!

Our Christmas trees are up and we are in love!

I first heard about King of Christmas trees through blogging and instagram. So many bloggers have been raving about these flocked trees and now I can see why!

They are reasonably priced and the quality is FANTASTIC – which is probably why they sell out as quickly as they do!

Here’s ours when it arrived!

Just beautiful, even without anything on it! I easily set the tree up all by myself. It came with a stand and 3 parts that took 10 minutes to put together.

We have 9′ foot ceilings and the one shown here is an 8′ prince flocked tree.

Here’s a picture with me in it to get a better idea of scale.

PS. how do you like my “mom” jeans? I was totally against high waisted jeans until I got some via Trunk Club. I’ve been LIVING in them ever since!!

And here’s our tree all decked out for the holidays! 

Do you love the tree collar? I’m really digging them this year vs a skirt. I feel like I was always adjusting the skirt before so this is much easier.

I took these photos tonight of our dining room/sunroom! This is my favorite room in the house because of all the windows and I wanted to to be extra festive this holiday season.

One thing I’ve learned with seasonal decorating is to focus on the spaces where you spend the most time.

Don’t mind the vacuum sticking out here haha!

I promise to get a better picture of this view for my full holiday house tour. I’m teaming up with some very talented bloggers this year so stayed tuned for that!

I’m also sharing a few things I’ve learned in my experiences decorating trees (we have 4 this year so I’m like a pro now 😉

1. Make it fun! Enlist your family or friends to help.

I’m lucky that my mom does our lights every year. She is so good at it! The kids help with the ornaments and Eric cheers us on while we belt out christmas tunes. If I didn’t have them, I would definitely be bribing some girlfriends to help trim the tree!

2. Cut your ribbon!

I wish I had known this trick years ago. I always wondered how people did their ribbon so beautifully. I learned it is much easier to cut strips about a foot long (doesn’t have to be exact) then tuck them throughout the tree.

3. Hang ornaments on the tips of the branches to create a fuller look.

You may have heard this one before. And it works. But, don’t forget to use larger ornaments or floral sprays to fill any holes. The nice thing about the King of Christmas flocked trees is that you don’t need to do too much decorating for it to still look beautiful.

You can order yours on Amazon, free shipping with prime. Here’s the link: 8′ Prince Flocked Tree.

The 7′ foot tree is only $159 today!

Happy trimming!

Thank you King of Christmas for gifting the trees to Shining on Design! As always, all opinions are 100% TRUE!
