25 days of ornaments: day 1

Happy first day of December!  Can you believe it's already here?

I've found so many adorable ornaments online and in stores recently, so I thought it would be fun to post an ornament a day between now and Christmas.  I'll start with one that I bought for my own tree!


Little red wellies! Aren't they darling?!  I found them in my local Target store; they are Smith & Hawken brand.  I'm having trouble finding them on the website {surprise, surprise...something not easy about the Target website}, but I believe it were less than 5 dollars.

And here's our first married Christmas tree!

It's not quite finished yet.  It needs a topper and a few more strands of faux cranberry garland {and the garland needs to be redraped}.  Since I took this picture, I took off 6 of the matte red ornaments and added 6 crackle-finish champagne ornaments to lighten things up.  I was going for a Ralph Lauren chic look for our tree {with all of our cheesy, sentimental childhood ornaments thrown in for good measure, of course!}, inspired by these tartan colors.




With just a few last finishing touches, I think we'll have it pretty close!

I'd love for y'all to play along! Please post or let me know about any fun ornament finds you have.  I can't wait to see all the Christmas pretties out there!

What a fun idea! I may steal this too, I think it's adorable.

I bought four little ornaments at Target over the weekend....I didn't see the wellies though, I would have brought those home too!

Gorgeous - isn't your first Smug Married tree together fun? I love the idea of mixing the stylish tartan colors with the fun ornaments.

Love that Wellies ornament; as luck would have it, I have to make a Target trip this afternoon, so I'll be on the hunt for that (and inevitably a bunch of other stuff).
