Christmas After Dark with Tree Classics

Welcome to Christmas After Dark with Tree Classics!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When my son was a little boy, every year at Christmas he begged for a tree with colored lights…….

…..and I always wanted a tree with clear lights.

To solve this dilemma, I would put up two trees, one with clear lights, and one with colored lights for my son.

Why, oh why, couldn’t I have had a tree like the Deluxe Noble Fir with changing LED lights from Tree Classics?!?

It would have made life so much easier!

When this stunning Deluxe Noble Fir tree arrived from Tree Classics, I was excited about putting it in our living room that we recently finished renovating.

The tree was so easy to put together. It comes with it’s own stand, and all you have to do is simply snap the stand into the bottom section of the tree, tilt it up, connect the treetop, and the setup is complete!

A built-in rolling stand lets you find the perfect spot for your tree easily, and after the holidays, the tree will store on its stand with its upright custom storage bag!

The living room isn’t quite ready for the full reveal yet because we’re still trying to bring in some furniture, hang artwork, etc. But this room just begs for the Christmas tree to be set up in front of the bay windows, and I have envisioned it being there from the moment we moved in.

So, that’s where I set the tree up.

This tree is beautiful during the daytime….

….but it’s stunning when lit up after dark.

Decorating the tree with the gorgeous glass ornaments from Tree Classics was a joy. The ornaments are so pretty and classic.

I chose the silver and gold ornament and finial collection and then added my Tree Classics ornaments from last year in gold and red, and finished with a few ornaments that I’ve had for years.

I love “stuffing” the branches with organic materials, such as gilded branches and large pine cones, some gilded with paint, and some left natural.

I added a stunning tree skirt from Tree Classics in a gorgeous gold satin and gold sequins around the edge.

I used a large 72″ size because I like to bunch it up a bit around the base of the tree for added depth, layering the gifts around it.

I brought in some of my favorite things to surround this beautiful tree, and set the scene for an old fashioned Christmas!

The rest of the living room is pretty sparse with just a chair and a french sofa, but that’s all we need to sit and enjoy the pretty lights on the tree at night.

Hopefully we’ll have the rest of the room put together soon and I can do a full reveal!

We have a decision to make with this tree…..do we want clear lights……….

……or do we want colored lights??

You can have both with just the flick of a switch!

The Deluxe Noble Fir tree comes with color changing LED lights, which gives you four lighting choices….clear LED lights, multi colored LED lights, alternating from clear to multi, and off.

I can’t decide which lights I like better!

It will be fun switching back and forth, depending on our mood.

In addition to the usual Clear lighting option, the stately Deluxe Noble Fir offers our Color Changing LED Lights. This option provides 4 lighting choices, all into one tree: 1) clear LED lights, 2) multi colored LED lights, 3) alternating from clear to multi, and 4) off. The breakthrough is that the same LED light bulb changes from a clear light to a colored light (yellow, red, blue or green) so that all of the tree's lights stay shining and bright.

I look forward to sitting in here with hubby and Miss RubyLou at night and enjoying this beautiful tree, drinking a cup of hot chocolate or maybe a glass of wine……

…….playing Christmas music, and maybe reading a special poem to Miss RubyLou….

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the pack,

Not an animal was stirring, not even for snacks.

The stockings where chewed by the chimney with care,

In hopes that Santapaws soon would be there.

The doggies were nestled all snug in their beds, 

While visions of rawhides danced in their heads……

  1. Can you please tell me what color and brand spray paint you used on your tall gold floor mirror? I have one very similar and it needs a fresh coat of paint but can’t figure out if it’s a brass or a gold paint. Thank so much! Love everything you do!

  2. I love your tree, esp. the clear lights. Ruby Lou adds a special touch to any room with her Christmas outfits.
    She loves to pose for pictures while she keeps Mommy company. Precious!
    I have a little girl cat, named Miss Kitty, because she was born Southern Georgia. Miss K is my constant companion but does not dress up for photos.
    Enjoy decorating and have a blessed Christmas season.

  3. There is always something new on the market to temp us , isn’t there? Beautiful tree! My husband and I just spent a week in Biloxi . He was in meetings most of the time but one morning was free and he asked what I would like to do. Knowing that Theodore , AL was less than an hour from Biloxi, MS and that Bellingrath Gardens and Charles Phillips Antiques were there, I knew exactly what I wanted to do! The gardens and home were gorgeous I spent 2 hours there. Hubby decided to opt out of the house tour but that was ok. I loved it. BUT Charles Phillips Antiques! Oh my! Eight buildings full of antique shutters, doors, and furniture. Then fabric, dough bowls, and accessories. I was totally overwhelmed. I will need 2 or 3 more trips there before I can actually get organized enough to know what to buy. It was a perfect day. Beautiful weather, beautiful gardens, beautiful home and over the top antique store. I may never get to actually go back but I got there once. Thanks to your blog I had a fabulous day.

    • Oh, Claire, I’m so glad you got to visit those two fabulous places! Charles Phillips Antiques can be a bit overwhelming the first time you visit, but if you love European antiques, it is paradise! Thanks for commenting!

  4. So funny, my son also loved the colors lights! He and his wife now live in the guest house on our new property so he can now have his colored lights! I think this year I will honor my mom and use her beautiful ornaments. I will be a nice memory.

  5. For the first time in years I’m doing my LR tree with red (and gold, white and some nature elements). I got so tired of using the traditional red and green but got inspired by posts like yours. Thanks for more inspiration! Lovely tree….can’t wait to see the rest of the room reveal.

    • Thank you, Connie! I usually don do red but the last couple of years I have and I’ve enjoyed the change! Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!

  6. Cindy, your tree looks beautiful! I agree, it’s such a pleasure to be able to switch the lights to colored at the touch of a button. It’s a joy to be on this Christmas After Dark tour with you! xo

  7. What a lovely home you have and your Christmas decor is beautiful! I love all the special touches you’ve added around the tree. Having the option of clear or colored lights is refreshing since I can never decide which ones I like the best.

  8. Everything looks fabulous! Your mirror and the reflection of the tree are breathtaking! Is the little grapevine tree on your staircase similar to the one you arranged with hydrangeas? That vignette blew me away!

  9. Cindy, it’s magnificent!! I’m a fan of clear, but how wonderful to have the choice!! Very cool. Can’t wait to see your living room reveal too. Looks like a room with fabulous bones and with your talent, I know it will be stunning!!

  10. Everything looks lovely. Cannot wait for full room reveal. Choosing light shape and color is such a funny thing. I miss those big classic bulbs. I love twinkly white, but love color too. I live in a rural area, and a neighbor has a very long fence. Every year, going on 25 now, the fence is adorned with colored lights and I adore it.
    Not only do I love your tree’s light options, it has a beautiful shape. And of course decor is spot on.
    Finally, off topic, the terrarium/wardian case in the background: I must have one in my life.

  11. First of all, the tree is magnificent Cindy! I think my next tree will be the one with the changing lights as my hubby loves the color and I love the crisp white lights! I had to laugh when I read the story about your son. As it was the same in my household when my son was growing up and I had two trees …. back then I was the renegade as not many people had two trees….I had my tree with white lights in the living room and the “boys” tree of colored lights in the family room….Love, love your home every day; however, at Christmas time you can hear the angels sing!

    • Aw, dear friend, you are so sweet with your kind words! Thank you! Last night I was playing with the lights, switching them back and forth, and I couldn’t help but think that my son would have loved this tree when he was growing up!

We would love to hear from you!
