The holidays have officially arrived at Happily Inspired, and I’m embracing every minute. Gimme all of the white Christmas tree decor ideas! In all honesty, I used to be one of those people who wouldn’t even bat an eyelash at holiday decor until the day after Thanksgiving. What changed? With this season being my absolute favorite time of year – I wanted to get the most out of it. It just gives me a couple of extra weeks to fully embrace the glitz. I’m sure you’ve seen this article circulating around – decorating early for Christmas makes you happier, it’s science. Just have to do what makes you happiest, and ignore the haters! There’s just nothing better than winding down after a long day with twinkling lights and a cup of hot cocoa – am I right? PS: I’m changing things up a bit this year, and will post an updated holiday home tour in the next couple of weeks. Definitely stay tuned! Make sure to follow along on Instagram, I tend to share things first.

Today, I’m actually sharing my white Christmas tree decor ideas from last year, because I never even showed it off on the blog! I was a bit busy snuggling a newborn, so I had a good excuse. This photo got reposted on Instagram, and received over 33,000 likes! I just love how this tree looks freshly covered in snow, and it photographs so beautifully. As much as I’d love to be a ‘real tree’ person (best scene ever in National Lampoon Christmas Vacation) It’s just not for me. Also, it would most definitely fly off our car, that’s a fact. Although, I still love visiting tree farms because they’re so festive and fun. Would love to hear some of your local favorites in the comments below.

White Christmas Tree Decor Ideas

Here’s the best part, I found a white Christmas tree for under $200! It’s pre-lit, 5 star reviews, and takes all of 15 minutes to set up. It’s a favorite amongst other bloggers as well (how I found out about it in the first place). This white Christmas tree does tend to sell out quickly, so make sure to scoop if you see in stock. I will keep you alerted on similar when it does sell out, just make sure to follow along on Instagram. I’m also crushing on this flocked pine needle tree – it looks so beautiful and real. Just wish I had somewhere to put it! Last year, I wanted things to be whimsical and fun. Soft pastels, food ornaments and a touch of vintage bliss. I put a blush slipper sofa next to the fire (so cozy) and softened up the room. I added a faux fur tree skirt for some winter glam and absolutely love how it turned out. Was the most magical Christmas yet with my Harlow. This year will be even better! Although, not sure how decor works with a 15 month old. Feel free to chime in on that! Will definitely share more white Christmas tree decor ideas in the coming weeks!
