Forests of White

with silver

I started with a small Noble but pruned out every other layer so I can tuck the ornaments in...way in.
Then I add frosty pics tucked in for 
extra sparkle and texture.

Funny how the  lights photographed. 
They really are balanced in person, but 
with one more tree to do, I was hesitant to 
take the time to pull the lights forward for a photograph.
It is why I ADMIRE so much the talent of 
other bloggers who spend hours 
to get those gorgeous shots.
I am a point and shoot kinda gal.

Just beautiful! And I love that you trimmed out some of the branches to make room for tucking ornaments in deep. I'll try this idea next year! Hope you're having a wonderful holiday season! xoxo Gigi

Well, point and shoot gal, to me it looks absolutely devine! Beautifully offsets your shades of white and creme. Very beautiful.

Your tree is beautiful. I love how you trim out rows...that is a great idea! It looks lush with ornaments {and those are beautiful, too}. So nicely done! :-)

Hey Suzan....you did good! The tree is lovely, and I love the idea of triming the branches (never thought of it). You are just too clever!

Have a great week.

Your pictures are beautiful! The second one is perfection.
Another beautiful tree!

What a beautiful tree Suzan. I am so far behind on my decorating this year. I don't think I'll do as much as usual. We're going to be gone over Christmas this year and I can hardly bear to think about taking down my booth at Monticello's and all the decorations in my own home when we get back.

I've always loved the way the tree looks with just the lights on it and might try it this year. My kids are getting older and say they don't mind if things are different this year.

Best wishes,

What a grand idea to trim out the layers of the tree!! I've already put 1200 lights on my tree or I would have the clippers to it tonight! There's always next year!
Beautiful decorations!
Tammy :-)


Just beautiful. I just want to pull up a chair in that cozy wingback and stay a while.

Happy WW,

A beautiful tree, I love the white!

Soooooo pretty! I have to agree with everyone, trimming the branches is a great idea! Duane and the kids love the big full blue spruce trees, and cringe when I lead them to more sparse fir trees. This year I have warned them we ARE getting a tree that you can actually hang lights and ornies from without cutting up our arm! You do a mean point and shoot, your shots are gorgeous! Theresa xoxo
