Holiday Open House, Week 2

Welcome to Week 2 of my Holiday Open House party! 
 Today is the time to show off those gorgeous Christmas Trees!
If you didn’t get to share your decorations last week, you can share your living room, dining room, kitchen, etc. decorations at this party as well. 

Here is our tree and a close up shot of my ornaments.

I placed our tree in front of the large window in the front of our house again this year.

Here are some of my favorite ornaments.
Travis broke some of my all time favorites last year, boo :(, so I had to buy quite a few new ones this year.
 I love glass ornaments.
I love ornaments with glitter.
So I have LOTS of them! 
The Santa star was a gift from my  Aunt one Christmas.

 I bought the pink ornament with the owl as P’s first Christmas ornament. I just bought a paint pen and wrote on the back the year and “Parker’s 1st Christmas.”
 The two top ornaments are two new additions this year. 
The Santa icicle was also a gift from my aunt.
And the cute Reindeer was a gift for Parker last year. 
 The two ornaments on the left side are also new ones this year. 
I love the top left one! 🙂 
 The two top ornaments are the ornaments Travis and I made at the Louisville Glass Company when we lived in KY.
The bottom right is also a new one. 
 I’ve had all these ornaments for a few years now. They were either gifts or ornaments I bought. 
 All four of these ornaments are new additions. 
 The right ornaments is the last new one this year. 
Told ya I like glass, glittery ornaments! 🙂 
I wrapped my tree in burlap ribbon this year instead of the silver ribbon I normally do and then still included the glittery tree picks I made a few years ago. 
Patton enjoys taking naps on the tree skirt while he can before the presents are all shoved under there! 
I topped my tree with my usual tree topper as well. 
I love the glow of my tree at night and how the ornaments glisen! 🙂 
In our family room area, I have these two little trees all decorated. 
 I topped each tree with ribbon bows. 
 Travis’ Broncos Football Ornament goes on this tree. 
Along with ornaments Travis and I created over the years.
Just put paint into clear ornaments and bam… your done!

They add a nice little touch and glow to the family room.

Now it is time for you to show off your trees!!

    I love your Tree(s), Allison! I love your new ornaments too! Sorry to hear about the broken ones, but the new ones are awesome! I didn't have a chrismas tree picture/post to share, but I made a snowman wreath, so I shared that! Thanks so much for hosting this fun party! Looking forward to see what all shares! Cheers!

    Thanks for hosting, Allison! I love how your ornaments are so personal and (let's be honest) glittery! So pretty.
