Hi Ya! Guess what I've been up too? If you guessed getting started on Christmas decorating you'd be correct!
Though I am usually not this early in putting up a tree before Thanksgiving, I decided to go ahead and get a jump on things by putting up the Christmas tree on the screen porch. Once again I have been perfecting my nautical tree for the screen porch. It's been a lesson learned after a few years of unexpected weather obstacles that I've had to learn to accomodate.
This year I have added a new tree. Well, it's actually the tree I've used in the kitchen the last few years. I am not doing a tree in the kitchen this year due to that being the puppy's room while I am at work and believe me when I say she cannot be trusted around a Christmas tree. I have already witnessed her tugging on the outside tree branches a few times. Bad girl!
Now back to the Nautical tree on the screen porch. I have slowly added a few more pieces to complement the look I am going for. I have yet to find the right tree skirt but that will come.
I was especially excited to find these sailboats at Kirklands this year. By the time I found them there were only 3 to be had but they did say they really didn't get many in at all. What a treat to finally be able to have some sailboat ornaments that are large enough to represent the sport that we love so much.
I also found a crab and a sea turtle ornament at Kirklands as well. A few other new additions to the tree was the green and blue glitter discs and the blue mirrored balls. I also added several glittery green and blue ornamental picks that somewhat represent seaweed to me. LOL!
And For this years tree topper I added more funky seaweed looking picks in blues, greens and silvers along with a bluish green ball pick that reminded me of water bubbles.
And it's all centered around these adorable kissing seahorses. Awww! The seahorse ornament was a cute find at Kirklands as well.
Thanks again for stopping by and checking out my Nautical Christmas tree.
I hope you enjoyed your visit!
