Here it is, my 2021 Christmas tree! This year I opted for shades of rose gold and muted green for a play on the traditional red and green Christmas colors. It love how soft and elegant looking it turned out!

The tree itself is the Balsam Hill 6.5ft Balsam Fir. I adore Balsam Hill’s trees and usually the quality and fullness of the tree cannot be surpassed. Unfortunately, this particular tree has been a slight disappointment and I’m not sure I would recommend it for the amount of money it costs.

Unlike my other Balsam Hill trees, no amount of fluffing eliminated visible gaps in the upper half of the tree. The lower half is very full, the top not so much. It’s still beautiful – but I was a little disappointed.

To help bring more green into the color scheme (and let’s be honest, to fill some of the gaps!) I added faux eucaluptyus picks throughout. I love the different shade of green and added texture they bring.

At the last second, I also added some dark green throw pillows and a simple blanket to the couch. I’m not sure how I feel about them as I usually prefer a softer look, but they added some much needed color contrast for these photos!

Afloral has been my favorite source for faux flowers, garlands and the sort over the past few years. Not only is my mantel garland from there, but also the faux magnolia branches and these pretty juniper stems on my coffee table.

As much as I love the Christmas tree, the mantel is my favorite view in our living room. We have our Frame TV mounted over it, ad I switched out my usual landscape art for this pretty snowy scene.

I layered three different artificial garlands to get this look – my favorite Afloral Norfolk pine (sold out), some faux eucalyptus and a cedar garland that I purchased at Target last year.

Some stockings and a cute bell finish it off!

The entire living room looks like a bright, but with the right amount of festive twinkle and warmth. I just love it!
