Christmas Decor...A Silver & White Tree

I did it...
I went with "sparkle" instead of my traditional red & white.
You can see the trees that inspired me HERE.
I LOVE how my tree turned out...
I bought a few rolls of ribbon, the star & this "Merry Christmas" sign from Tai Pan..
I I also found these beautiful birds there...
They really sparkle!
I I already had the snowflakes & some of the ornaments.
I was going to get a new tree skirt, but the only white one at Walmart was $36...too much for me to spend!
So, I got a yard and half of this material & it only cost 3 bucks!  
I also changed my decor on my piano to match my tree.
I love how it turned out!
I started by buying these 3 little houses & trees from the dollar store.
I painted them with some white craft paint & threw some silver glitter on the roof of each one.
I also "flocked" the little trees with some paint.  I love how it turned out!
Total cost: $5
I did splurge & added the silver deer from Michael's.  It was half off for $17.
I usually have pictures of my kids hanging above the piano, but I took them down and put up a wreath & mirror I already had.  I'm really enjoying the change!
Here are a few more pictures of my tree lit up at night!
I love this time of year!
I can't wait to show you how I added a little "sparkle" to my entryway & staircase too.
If you'd like to see how much different my tree is from last year, You can find it HERE.
