I’m back today with another awesome blog hop. It’s the Merry & Bright Holiday Home Tour that I host with my blogging buddy Kellie from Design Asylum. This is the second year for the tour and we have an amazing line-up of 12 bloggers taking you on a tour of their holiday homes. If you’re coming over from Meg’s blog Green With Decor, welcome! I ‘m happy you’re here.
The Merry & Bright Holiday Home Tour takes place over next three weeks with today being the first in the series. We’ll be sharing more holiday cheer on Dec. 7th and Dec. 14th so mark your calendars.
Enough with the details…let’s get this party started!
Today I’m showing you my Christmas tree as well as a couple of sneak peeks at some of the other holiday decor that you’ll see next week.
If you remember a few weeks back I shared the inspiration for my holiday decor. It was this Poinsettia themed wrapping paper from Paper Mart.
Every year I change my tree decor and this year I decided to go with a theme that is perfect for the Merry & Bright Holiday Home Tour. The red, pink and green in the paper set the tone for my tree decor with a few additional colors thrown in to spice things up. I’m calling my tree the Merry & Bright tree.
During the day the bright colors make me smile and in the evening, all lit up the tree is just as beautiful.
Since the background of my inspirational wrapping paper is black, I decided to use two different ribbons on the tree. One is a black and white plaid and the other is a two-sided red and green satin.
To keep things simple, I used only solid colored ornaments in different colors, sizes and finishes. And I layered the ornaments from the inside out to give the tree a full look.

Here’s a little glimpse of some of the gifts I’ve wrapped so far. Next week I’ll share all of my wrapped packages with you as well as some fun gift wrapping ideas.
This green bubble ribbon makes an appearance in several areas of my decor and is so beautiful as a bow. Did I mention that I love making bows!
Next week you’ll also get to see my new blue and white bedroom decor which I’ve decked out for the holidays.
Oh Christmas Tree, oh Christmas Tree

I’m also excited that one of my favorite wrap, ribbon and paper goods companies has joined on as a sponsor for this years Merry & Bright Holiday Home Tour. Throughout the tour the participating bloggers will be showcasing Paper Mart ribbon and gift wrap products to inspire your holiday decor.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
