This year, I convinced my kids that hanging all of their ornaments on a smaller tree in the living room was a great idea, which meant I got the Christmas tree in our little sitting room all to myself. I used the flocked one that was on our patio last year and decided to go with a (mostly) white theme against the black walls.
(The chest is visiting from our bedroom—maybe permanently.)
I already had a few smaller stars, so I just went with it. I added several of these big, paper stars this year. They’re inexpensive and easy to fold up and reuse. (The “small” stars are really big, by the way. That’s them on the tree. The larger size is on the mirror.)
You may have also noticed the lighting is different. It’s the (smaller) Knox frosted pendant from Shop Ten 25. We took out almost all of the chain links to make it work for our 8’ ceilings. I think it gives the perfect glow against the darker walls:
