Trimming the Tree

Happy Holidays, Pinners!

One of my favorite holiday traditions is picking out our Christmas tree on the Friday after Thanksgiving.  This year, we were able to include both our our sets of parents in the hunt for the perfect Christmas tree in our first home.  It took two tree farms, but we finally found it!  It was a beautiful winter day in Iowa, just a little snow on the ground and it was in the mid-40s.  Our son also was able to use is brand new sled for the first time.

My post today, is all about my fabulous tree skirt.  I have seen dozens of tree skirts on Pinterest, but every single one that I had pinned to my All Things Holidays! board were ruffled with burlap and fabric.  When I went on Etsy to order one, I found that they were very, very expensive.  I am in no way good at sewing, but thankfully, my aunt is amazing.  I emailed her a picture of my pinned tree skirt that would be absolutely perfect.  Screen Shot 2014-11-30 at 8.54.07 PM

Within four or five days, my new tree skirt was at my door stop from The Windy City.  When I opened the box, I couldn’t believe my eyes.  It was everything I wanted, from the fabric, to the hemmed burlap, to the ribbon closures.  IT IS PERFECT!  It was the finishing touch to my gorgeous first tree!  Here is a Pinterest win, that we were able to make happen because of my incredibly talented aunt.
