Choosing the Perfect Slim Tree for a Tight Space

Are you searching for the perfect tree?  
Not too big, not too small, 
not too short, not too tall?  
I have partnered with Tree Classics to bring you this gorgeous Kennedy Fir Tree

This is the 7.5' Kennedy Fir Slim Artificial Christmas Tree with color changing LED lights.

The Kennedy Fir Christmas Tree features Tree Classics "Quick Set" lighting system.  This innovative technology automatically connects all string lights within the trunk of the tree, so all you need to do is pop each section together and plug in the tree!  It took me less than five minutes to completely set this tree up!  I was so excited, that I immediately called a client and told her about it.  She had one ordered and set up in her entry a few days later!

The needlepoint stockings were purchased with each new baby.  I found some similar ones HERE.
The brass planter was picked up at an antique store for $20.  To raise the tree up inside the planter, I had a sweet friend make me a 16.5" square platform 8" high.  I forgot to take a photo of it down in the planter.  Ugh.  Sorry about that!
Here is what it looked like when I received it.

It just slips down into the planter and raises the tree up a smidge.

I also added the Merry and Bright Vintage Ornament Set to mix among my own vintage ornaments...

Our family ornaments are a collection of handmade, a few of both of my grandmother's ornaments, and some we have collected through the years.
I purchased my ribbon at a little shop in NYC, but found some similar for you HERE.

When my boys were little, we made this paper chain over two Christmases.  We use it on our tree every year.  It reminds me of the sweetest memories and the tiniest chubby hands with glue sticks.

See how real the branches look?  
They are so life-like.

My favorite nativity in blue and white.
This was handed down from my mother, but I would purchase THIS one in a heartbeat!

See? I do use color in my home!
My boys were MOST EXCITED about the color changing option of LED lights.  They are right and have won me over!  I love the colorful, vintage vibe that the tree is lending to our home.

Remember our Tree Classics Tree from last year? 
You can see more of it HERE!!
This year, I added the Bethlehem Star Tree Topper and Silver Sequin Tree Skirt.  I think they really finish the tree!    

Thank you, Tree Classics, for inviting me to participate in your 12 Days of Christmas. 

One last look at my vintage Christmas tree...

Merry Christmas, darlings!

  2. Your tree is so beautiful and the paper garland is such a special touch. Love the pops of color, too! The color makes it such a fresh and festive room. Great job with the tree and room! Merry Christmas from Susie at The Chelsea Project

  3. Merry Christmas! Love that green ribbon!

  4. Emily, how fun to see you using all that color!! It looks wonderfully festive and perfect for the holiday. I really love how you incorporate all your family traditions. So very lovely and meaningful! Merry Christmas!

  5. Hi Emily, I saw your IG post about the colorful tree a little while ago. I agree that the colorful lights remind me of a vintage Christmas (80s in my case)! I grew up with bright colorful lights on my parent's trees. We aren't quite settled in (kind of a construction zone), so no tree for us this year. The only Christmas decorating I've managed to do is place candle lights in the windows. :) Merry Christmas from Miranda at Hannah's Hill


I enjoy hearing from you! I read each comment and will answer any questions you might have. Thank you for stopping by!!
