House to Home: First Christmas Tree

      Over the weekend my fiance and I were able to get our very first Christmas tree in the new apartment! Growing up, I actually never had a real Christmas tree. My parents opted for the artificial ones, but my fiance and I really wanted a real Christmas tree and the experience of choosing one. We opted for a 6 foot Fraser fir, and I already purchased all the ornaments which arrived the week of Thanksgiving. I wanted a nontraditional color scheme, but I also wanted it to blend in with our living room decor so I chose a powder blue, white, and gold color scheme. The miniature lights are also in "cool white" rather than the more common warm white string lights because I thought it would pop more against the dark green branches of the tree. It's the perfect festive touch to the living room and I can't wait to have guests over during the holiday season!
