Another Buffalo Check Christmas Tree

Another Buffalo Check Christmas Tree

This is the third Christmas I have had two Christmas trees. Growing up I always had a dream of having more than one Christmas tree that just seemed so fancy. So when I bought my house and it had a sunporch I immediately knew I could have my second Christmas tree. This year I decorated the tree in buffalo check. I know, I know we are not surprised. I LOVE buffalo check. However I did switch it up a bit by doing something I have never done beforeā€¦. I used two ribbons. I first adorned the tree with this buffalo check ribbon and then in between the ribbon I went back in with a burlap and red glitter ribbon.

A Rustic Christmas Tree

If the ornament or decoration does not fall within that story it doesn't make this tree (yes I have another tree).

Holiday Home Tour

Holiday Home Tour

I wanted to invite you into my home this holiday season. See this is a special holiday season for me since this is my first year in my new (rented) home and my first year celebrating the season on my own. While I have lived on my own before it had been in grad school where I travelled home for the holidays and there was no real need to decorate. This year I was very excited to decorate but boy can it be overwhelming. It took me almost a month to pick out a fake Christmas tree, I started looking in early October!
