What type of Balsam Hill tree do you have and how tall is it?
This tree was part of Balsam Hill’s 2013 “12 Bloggers of Christmas” series. It’s from the Greenwich Estates Pine Tree Set. It is 4 feet tall, and I gave it added appeal by placing it on top of a wooden sled.
What mix of ornaments did you use for your Greenwich Estates Pine tree?
I was so excited to create my own custom monogram ornaments for this tree in my entry. I used mason jar lids and printed out the initials of the members in our family and then used hot glue to attach a little piece of twine for the hook. In addition to the mason jar lid ornaments, I used little chalkboard tags and we all wrote down things we love about our family. It was so fun to get creative with this tree, and because it was so small it was easy to keep it to an overall theme.
How many ornaments did you use to achieve this look?
There were approximately 30 ornaments on this tree.
How much garland/ribbon did it take to cover the tree?
I used ribbon for extra detail, and then made my garland out of twine and paper to give it more depth and texture.
How did you decide on the decorating theme of your tree?
I am completely obsessed with monograms, and I thought it would be so perfect to have our family name represented in the entry of our home, greeting each guest that walks through the door.
