HI everyone! I am excited to be a a part of the 12 bloggers of Christmas! Welcome if you are coming over from Vanessa’s! Last year, I shared my upstairs tree with you, this year I have a downstairs tree to share with you! This year I went with a Pom Pom Christmas tree theme.
I needed a smaller tree for our family room space. I really wanted a tree, but it was a tight space. When I saw the Revelstoke Fir, I know it would be perfect, because it wasn’t too tall either!
It was the perfect fit next to our faux mantel!
What I really love about it is how it looks when it’s fully lit. It really is a pretty tree.
The base is a post and stand instead of a traditional tree base, so we were able to cut a hole in the bottom of a $9 Ikea basket and use that at the bottom instead of a traditional skirt. I love how it looks!
We drilled a 2 inch hole and put the base on the floor so the top of it stuck up through the opening and just slid the tree on.
I love how it ended up giving a really fun, casual look to the tree.
I also love how the branches look, and how each little needle looks so real.
It was the right tree for our cozy downstairs.
