Animal Print Christmas Tree

Happy Monday and Merry soon to be Christmas. Have you finished your Christmas shopping? I haven't started yet. So today I will be making a mad dash to the store, to get it done. Any who, I didn't do a lot of decorating this year, so I figured I would share a Christmas tree from a few years ago. I had purchased several spools of ribbon that I loved. I wanted to use the ribbon, but I didn't know how or where. At the time I purchased the ribbon decorating trees with poly mesh was BIG business. I liked the look of the poly mesh trees, but I didn't have any on hand. So I decided to decorate the tree with the ribbon......

Animal print ribbon....
  I am slowly easing you into the finished tree, so be patient. I used not one, not two, but three different ribbons. What can I say about the tree topper? I like it because it's everywhere, sort of like my hair! lol. You like?
 The addition of the ornaments and poinsettias add depth, dimension and sparkle. Gotta have that sparkle! Did I mention animal prints are my fave?
Even the tree skirt is trimmed in animal print! Are you still with me? Almost there....
Drum roll please....

Here's the decorated tree. So what do you think?


I used the remaining peacock ribbon to make the doors in the entry look festive, and to coordinate with the tree. Have you ever used any animal prints in your Christmas decorating?
Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Hi Lory, Merry Christmas! I love your animal print ribbons! I really like the peacock ribbon & feathers. I have a peacock as the topper on my tree. I wanted peacock feathers, but I didn't want to over spend this year.

    1. Thanks Dee, hope you had a very Merry Christmas. You know my motto "Every room needs a little animal print." Happy New Year!

  2. Very pretty, Lory! Your tree is so full! Love the different ribbons you used. Merry Christmas!!

    1. Thanks Brandi, and have a Happy Healthy and prosperous New Year!

  3. That's a very pretty Christmas tree. I've never seen one quite like it and the skirt is so glam. I love how you decorated your front door, too. Merry Christmas to you... :)

    1. Thanks Dee, the tree was a hit with friends and family. Happy New Year!

  4. Oh Lory I totally love it! The peacock ribbon is fantastic.

    May you have a joyously happy and healthy new year!

  5. Thanks Laura, have a blessed and prosperous New Year!

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.   My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes. Spode  China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew? Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings. You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?             

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started! These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath. If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila!  I used a pipe cleaner/chenille

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

 I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well. (mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both partie
