Do you decorate your master bedroom for Christmas? Up until several years ago, I didn’t decorate it at all. And then, one year I decided to put up a Christmas tree in the master bedroom and I was hooked. You might ask yourself, “Why decorate a room that no one will see?” Simply because it’s your private sanctuary, is the exact reason that you should decorate it!
Adding a beautiful tree, no matter the size, brings just a bit more serenity to the space during this sacred time of the year. It’s like adding a bit of holiday cheer just for you. Each morning when I wake, and see this beautiful tree, it brings a smile to my face.
Since childhood, I’ve been smitten with flocked trees. My mother always wanted a flocked tree during the holidays, and for many years we tried doing our own flocking, using everything from the cans of artificial snow (what a mess!) to the commercial flocking kits, which had a better end result, but the process wasn’t for the faint of heart!
Today, it’s so much easier to buy a gorgeous flocked Christmas tree and this one is so pretty and realistic. Even hubby was impressed, commenting several times about how beautiful this tree is, and he was very impressed with how easy it was to set up. Each section just snaps into the previous one, and automatically the lights are connected!
I placed the tree in an antique French basket and added a furry white throw at it’s base, spilling over the top of the basket, adding to the snowy effect. This year, I wanted to decorate with the classic seasonal colors of red and white, and the red ornaments look striking against the snowy background.
I tucked tartan ribbon among the lavish branches, letting it curl and cascade down the abundant boughs. I love using matching ribbons on the packages for a coordinated look, and tartan is very trendy this year.
It’s so easy to pick up wide ribbon in a multitude of patterns and colors, and wind it through the tree, as well as adorn the gifts with it. I always use the wired ribbon and curl it around my arm in sections. When it’s unfurled, it will keep it’s “curliness” for the perfect shape to tuck into the tree branches.
My last addition to the Christmas tree was a sweet bird’s nest. One of my childhood traditions was adding a bird’s nest to our Christmas tree every year. My mother always insisted on it, telling the story that good luck would come to any home that found a bird’s nest nestled among the branches of the family Christmas tree.
As an adult, the bird’s nest has become a charming tradition to add to our own holiday celebrations. A bird nest, a bird sitting on its nest, or a simple bird, are the most natural of all ornaments to place on the branch of your tree.
No decorating is complete without Miss RubyLou dressed in her holiday finery.
