Ok, I know we all just finished trick-or-treating, our costumes have barely hit the floor, and our faces are still damp from washing off the makeup. However, now that Halloween is behind us….it’s officially Christmastime! Wahoo! That’s how I feel at least.
The holiday season is my absolute favorite time of year, and I start celebrating as soon as possible! Well, as soon as it’s socially acceptable. Thanksgiving what? ;)
One of the best parts of the holidays is of course decorating the Christmas tree and having it light up the house day and (especially) night. That’s why I was so happy to team up with At Home Christmas Decor and explore their amazing Christmas decor options to share with you guys and gals….and we even got ourselves a brand new tree this year!
It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas Here at WTSHB!
We purchased our previous Christmas tree back in 2008 and it was looking worse for wear, let me tell ya. The branches and pine needles were super raggedy and patchy, it didn’t have a lot of lights, and it was quite small. It needed replacing, like yesterday.
Enter At Home!
Our town just had a brand new At Home store open about a month ago, and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. They are a one-stop-shop to design your whole house – every single room. Literally. They have EVERYTHING, especially for the holidays, including an unmatched assortment of indoor and outdoor décor items for Christmas.
The Tree for Me Lot
They have trees of all different shapes, sizes, colors, and more in the following styles:
- Fashion Color
This Tree for Me lot is HUGE, and we spent quite a while perusing all the different varieties, playing with the light functions, and feeling the pine needles.
And this picture just cracks me up because here we are picking out Christmas decorations and my son is in shorts and flip flops. Ha! That’s fall in Alabama for ya.
See some of the different fun tree varieties they have? Even an upside down one!
I would have liked to go a little crazy with our tree selection, but my husband is 100% traditional (some might say boring), so here’s the tree that we ended up going with.
It’s from the Classic style, naturally, and has a great variety of pine needles and branches and classic white lights. It’s also a Goldilocks size…not too big, not too small. Perfect!
The Pretty Things!
Not only does At Home offer a ton of artificial trees to choose from, but they also feature all kinds of fun and pretty Christmas décor items (from dining to ornaments) in FIFTEEN decorative themes:
- Seas & Greetings
- Holiday Hoedown
- Lavish and Luxe
- Peppermint Jazz
- Berry Platinum
- Forest Fairy Tales
- Crystal Chateau
- Cherished Memories
- Heaven and Earth
- Midnight Plume
- Regal Renaissance
- Snowcapped Scene
- Handcrafted from Around the World
- Dem Darlings
Here are a handful of them…LOTS of variety!:
They also carry lots of bulk ornaments too.
Here are the goodies we snagged. Everything is so affordable thanks to their everyday low prices! And since we have a toddler, shatterproof is our friend.
Our Trimmed Tree All Lit Up!
I just love how our new tree looks in our family room! There are so many lights on it and they shine so brightly. At night, we turn off all the other lights in the house and have this as our only light source….it’s so pretty and is one of the best parts of the holiday season. Now we just gotta get some gifts wrapped and placed underneath! :)
This is the first year that my son is really starting to get into all the holidays and he is obsessed with this tree (especially playing with the ornaments….#momproblems). He’s also quite mesmerized by the lights….and also by the camera on the tripod, which he just had to come investigate. ;)
