The tree is up

Oh what a workout!! lol
I had hoped to put it in front of the big windows in front but it just stuck out into the room so much so it's planted in the corner instead.
We never use that door anyways as DH parks in back and I have issues in my knee getting up and down the front steps so it worked out well.

I've waited a long time to do this color scheme and am very very happy with the way it came out. It also has red/clear lights on it but I couldn't get a pic of it at all despite numerous attempts.

and the table has been changed to match...

and the sidecabinet to..

What a huge, BEAUTIFUL tree!! No wonder you got a work-out decorating that. WOW. Your tablesetting is very pretty, and I like all the red on the side cabinet.
Does your big jar have a pedestal base? I can't tell from the photo. I got one like it, with a pedestal base, yesterday and love the size of it.
Had to laugh at myself tho...I paid too much. I had to go to my daughter's and noticed the church near her was having a rummage sale. It was the end of their second day.
Darn!! I stopped to look around, very little left that wasn't clothes or just was junky. Then I spied the huge jar and was thrilled. I went to pay and the lady said things were ONE DOLLAR as they were getting ready to close.
Well the money goes to children for their charity. So I gave her $5 for the jar. LOL. Guess I failed bargain buying.

Gosh I love your tree, and makes me wish I could have a big one like that. My cats would love it too much. You are lucky, I don't think Pugs climb trees. LOL.

hugs, Karen

MM, the red/silver looks great together--what's the other color I'm seeing? Is it black or green, can't really tell on my monitor. Your table looks "elegant" love the layering of the plates/charger. Nice candle holders and pretty red candles on the side table too. You're off to a great start--I'm still trying to figure out how to box up all my Fall! LOL

Thank you :)!
Karen : No, the jar doesn't have a base. It's actually just a very large flower vase that I tend to stuff all kinds of things in rather than flowers. lol

Nana: About 9 hours from dragging everything out to finish. Oiiii. lol

Luvs: The 3rd color is black. I've waivered back and forth for awhile about using it but decided , just go with it and see what happened.

That table is just beautiful and elegant!! It would work for New Year's Eve too. And your tree has just the right amount of everything, so huge, too. Again, love that table.

That's a beautiful decorating job on the tree. How long did it take????? I wish I could hire me a tree trimmer. I dread the work. I get so impatient.

Your table is beautiful. I think it might be the best one I've seen you produce so far. You just keep getting better and better. I love the double napkin thing you did.

RE: The tree is up

MM. love your color choice and everything is beautiful. I love black with most colors but this is stunning.

Love it. We have some black decorations for our tree. It really adds something extra to the scheme.

RE: The tree is up

I just saw on an HGTV holiday special that some of the best trees are decorated using 3 colors and yours is a testament to that. I love trees with lots and lots of ornies, you did great. Your table is very elegant and your napkins look like candles to me.

That looks so pretty and cheery, MM! I always think that red at Christmas is so lovely and holiday-ish. How nice that your table now carries on that theme, too!
