Aqua and Red Flocked Coastal Christmas Tree....

So I've finally finished my Christmas tree...and I have to say, I'm really happy with it.  I love the combination of Aqua and Red...so that was my theme this year, along with my favorite coastal touches.  And let's not forget the flocking which I love so much...I may never go back to a traditional tree again.  Or maybe I will have to have two trees next year.   

It is filled with starfish, seashells, red coral, apples, jingle bells and other beautiful ornaments.  I think this tree reminds me of a really large, beautifully wrapped Christmas present.  You'll notice the tree is not decorated on the bottom third...and has nothing around it other than a burlap tree skirt.  That's because I have some very curious cats who have lived under the tree since I put it up last week. I decided to not tempt them by decorating it at the bottom where they could do some major destruction.   




















Hope you had a wonderful weekend...and while I'm a little late to the party, I'm linking up to:
