Rustic Red Christmas Tree

December 12, 2012 by 8 Comments

Quick question: Is three posts in 24 hours too many!?!  Last year I spray painted some nutcrackers white and the boys had a blast decorating their Christmas Tree.  This year, we went with a Rustic Red Christmas Tree…fitting because they often beg us to move out to the country where they can have acres of land to roam and explore.  For now, this little bird and the complimenting red accents on their country Christmas Tree will have to do!

This sweet little bird totally won me over and the stars with polka dots…too cute!  Thanks, IKEA!

Every year around this time we meet some of our dearest friends at a theater to catch a fun Christmas Movie!  The first year we went, I spotted a resale store across the street.  When the show was over, I forced convinced my family to stop in for a peek.  I walked in, went down two rows, turned around, went back to the door, grabbed a cart and continued my hunt!  I’m telling you wall to wall awesome decor…more Christmas decorations then I had ever seen at a thrift store.  I should have bought so much more because the years following haven’t ever compared.  My boys still have their nutcracker from there and play with that little bottom lip all the time!  I can hardly believe it’s still totally intact!

Okay, now look at the picture below…cute right, the boys did a really good job decorating.  I love that they totally get into Christmas!  There other passion in life…

…teasing their mommy!  They thoroughly enjoy scattering pieces from our Russian Nesting Doll Set throughout the house!  Can you spot one of the pieces below!?!?  Crazy little guys!  Did you see on instagram what they did as an “experiment?”  Like I said, crazy little guys!

I recently decorated the boys’ bedroom and shared all the scoop – where I stashed their dresser for more floor space, the DIY bookshelves, the baseball card bulletin board, and even how I scored designer bedding for way less.  The only additions to this room are the cute little IKEA pillow, their tree and nutcracker.  Oh, and the wreath on the outside of the windows…Big B and I put them on the outside of our windows around the house last weekend and we’re totally patting ourselves on the back!  It’s amazing how much wreaths dress up a house (props for Stud, too for lining the entire room with white lights…the C9 lights because those are my favorite).

And on Baby B’s bed is a stack of elf hats awaiting his party this weekend!  And the star of the party….

 Santa Baby himself!  If you’re curious about the party I shared some of the decor and a free printable that I made to use as our invitation – it’d be fitting for any Christmas Party!

Merry Christmas from Baby B and Big B.

    Your tree is magical, Aimee! How wonderful to try out a new take on the traditional colors of Christmas (and the Nutcracker is my favorite winter story)

  8. I love these pictures! I need to start making some ornaments for next year… When I brought out the Nutcracker, the girls started trying to chomp each other. Aka, it’s high on a shelf now ;-)
