Our Bling Tree and Metallic Tree

As I mentioned in a previous post, my husband I celebrate both Hanukkah and Christmas. I like to use the term Chrismukkah when I think of the holiday season. Some people may thing it is strange to see both a menorah and Christmas trees (yes trees) in our house, but I like to embrace it all! One of my favorite aspects of decorating for the holidays is decorating our trees. There are so many possibilities for color schemes and tree themes, that I could never make up my mind. I convinced my husband that we should have two trees. So now the kids that grew up without a Christmas tree in their homes have some fancy trees!

The first tree is our "bling" tree. It reminds me of winter, with its white and silver tones, just like snow and ice. This year, we added some charcoal grey to add a little contrast. 






These crystal butterflies are some of my favorite decorations on the tree.





 Shoe ornaments!


The chandelier ornaments are my absolute favorite!


I just love the sequin trim of the tree skirt!


Our other tree has the warm metallic tones that I love so much. It has copper, bronze, and gold ornaments.





I love the fairy ornaments and the bronze poinsettias.



The mask ornaments were a great find at Target a few years ago.


My husband I each have a 'J' on the tree for the first letter of our first names.
