I love our white themed Christmas tree! I have collected white and silver ornaments over the last couple of years on clearance after Christmas for when Jeremy and I got married. So we had a few to put on the tree, and then I also made some ornaments.
My favorite part of the tree is the garland. It has a capriz shell look to it, don't you think? It is actually made from wax paper! Here is my tutorial for making your own wax paper garland
Here are some of the ornaments I had bought over the past couple of years.
The olive tree wood ornaments above were some that I bought on my trip to Israel. They are so special to put on the tree, and remind me of my time there, as well as the true meaning of Christmas.
Another one of my favorite parts is the tree skirt. It is in fact a wedding dress train! If you've been a reader for a while, you may remember this post where I mentioned using it as a tree skirt. I worked at a bridal shop when I lived in VA, and we received this huge wedding dress train as a donation. We couldn't sell it, so I I took it home and made a couple of things from it!
I think it works great as a tree skirt!
I only wish that I had some way to get those wrinkles out- any suggestions for how to get wrinkles out of real silk? I tried to steam it, and I just made brown spots.
