My First Christmas Tree and My Weekend of Stylish Holiday Events
This weekend was filled with holiday cheer as I threw my first Christmas party at my home (it’s hard to believe I have been living in my condo for almost a year now!) and I also attended another holiday party at my friend’s sister’s home in the beautiful Smoke Rise community in Kinnelon, New Jersey.
Here is a look at my Christmas tree! Although I very much admire a real tree, I decided to go with a fake one as its just easier to maintain and I know I can use it every year. It came with the built in colored lights and I added candy canes, a gold beaded garland, gold glittery ornaments, and a big red bow on top.
I really wanted to get a star for the top of the tree, but I honestly did NOT find one I was 100% in love with and I’m not going to just settle for any old star unless I knew it was perfect. Instead, I decided the bow was a nice finish (hard to see in the photo, but it also matches with the red decor theme of my living room).
Here are some photos taken from my holiday party along with the other party I attended this past weekend:
