Over the weekend I finally got around to getting my annual tabletop Christmas tree. It’s a little wonky, as these NYC sidewalk trees tend to be-but I love it all the same. Mainly because it serves as a holding device for Christmas lights, and who doesn’t love those? I’m still scheming out a way to have fairy lights up all year long…maybe strung along my curtain rod. That’s an idea that’s always floating around in my mind (along with the fear that if I do that, my curtains might light on fire…hence why I haven’t gone ahead with it).
I decorated with just one type of ornament-these petite, sparkly ones from West Elm a few years back. I love that they’re mini, since regular sized ornaments tend to look a little awkward on these tiny trees. While I was decorating (and pretty much nonstop all weekend), I listened to this playlist from Sarah– it’s pretty spectacular.
If only I’d looked as glam as Inslee’s December girl while I was decorating it!
PS-I’m taking a photography class and I just learned that those dots of light you see above from the lights reflecting on the glass frame are called “bokeh.” Pretty, yes?
