It's a Very Merry MacKenzie Childs Christmas

     I am so excited to finally be sharing our Christmas tree with you guys! I typically always do a "white Christmas" in our household. I think all white is so elegant & pretty. Although, this year I wanted to switch it up and add a pop of red, yet still make it very elegant & classic. I am beyond happy with the turn out and I am so thrilled I decided to try something new.
     I decided that this year's theme was going to be inspired by MacKenzie Childsit's going to be a very Merry MacKenzie Christmas! I am a courtly check kind of girl. I think the combination of black & white check is beyond classic and timeless. 
     As you can see, I used the classic & signature courtly check ribbon throughout the tree. Besides just using that, I wanted to add something a little more, making it very festive and adding different textures. I decided to also throw in the MacKenzie Highland Ribbon. You guys, this ribbon is so gorgeous. It still gives off that Mackenzie vibe with the courtly check on the sides, then gold lining, red velvet, and plaid in the middle. Does it get anymore Christmas than that?! I don't think so.
     I go with a certain theme every year, so my ornaments have to match. Almost always, the base color is white. Majority of my ornaments are white and silver, and I added a pop of red in there for this year( The 3 faux poinsettias being the main pop). To tie my MacKenzie theme together, I added a few Courtly Check Ball Ornaments in the tree as well. 
     Our Christmas tree is 9 foot, flocked, and yes... artificial.  It is 100% a personal preference. Growing up, we always had real Christmas tree's and yes they do give off an amazing scent in the house. But, that's what Bath& Body Works wall plug ins are for, right?! Ha! My family and I still go to the tree farm and experience that, we just don't have to take one home, put it up, then bring it back down,only throw away in the trash. So artificial, just works better for us. We found our tree at Hobby Lobby last year (our 1st Christmas in our house) and we got an amazing deal on it. Below I linked a couple other options for you guys! Also, our tree skirt is a grey faux fur from Nicole Miller. I found ours at HomeGoods last year, but I found a very similar one at Pottery Barn.
     Now, we couldn't forget the big bow topper or the presents under the tree could we?! For this bow, I made it as big as I possibly could, ha! I wanted the Bow to be the main focus of red, with a little touch of Mackenzie. Then, the presents were wrapped all in red, white, silver, and plaid wrapping paper matching the tree's ornaments and ribbon. The little plaid bow wrapped on the silver and red boxes really allowed for the plaid in the MacKenzie Highland Ribbon to stand out and pop, which was the whole point!
     I hope you guys enjoy our Christmas Tree. Merry Christmas!
Stay tuned for Sophia Grace & Noah's Christmas tree's.
