Our 2012 Christmas Tree

This Christmas we brought a real tree from a family from Oregon who sells trees. They grow the trees all year in Oregon, then travel to Palm Desert to sell them. Since they were family grown, we were glad we could help them out.

They even had some sprayed white, incase you want a white christmas.

After we got the tree tied up to the Hummer, we brought it home and then it was time to decorate!

The theme for this years tree was to have a color blocked tree. My mother and I wanted to tie fashion into our tree. We decided to make the tree on trend with color block and found these great ornaments from Target.

Only problem is, we had to tie the hook on every ornament. Which took up a substantial amount of time.... We ended up making another trip to Target to buy hooks.

Then came the fun part.... the DECORATING! First, we had to string all of the lights.

Then came the ornaments, we started with red.

Next, the pink ornaments.

Then came the purple ornaments.

After purple, came blue.

Last, we added the green ornaments on the bottom.

Merry Christmas!
