Since Lukas is more curious than ever, putting up a tall tree isn't going to happen so instead I found this awesome table gold sparkly tree from Home Goods and I added the red birds that I got from Kmart.
I am so proud of my mantle this year and it reminds me of an english country home.
My all time favorite photo of my husband's grandparents suits very well in the mantle and added that vintage glamour feel that I'm going for.
Just because we didn't have a real tree this year doesn't mean that I'm gonna miss on the pine tree smell so I went to the local christmas tree yard and asked for scraps of branches and made it into a center piece on my dining table by adding the fake little pine trees that I got from Michaels for 1/2 off discount!
To add more sparkle and glamour I wrapped the stair bars with red and gold ribbon and added a candle wreath on the safety gate to add a punch to it.
