Okay, I’m warning you. This post has way too many pictures of my Gradient Rainbow Christmas tree. Prepare yourself. Or, as Britney Spears would say, “Don’t hold it against me.”

Anyway, I was finally able to decorate tree #2 yesterday. For those of you who were following IBC last year, it’s going to look pretty familiar.

Please welcome back my Gradient Rainbow Christmas tree!

Gradient Rainbow Christmas Tree

Hands down, this is my favorite holiday decoration. I did, however, make a few changes to this year’s version. First, and probably most noticeable, I have a new tree. My friends at Treetopia sent me this gorgeous Slim Spruce Christmas Tree. Not that I’ve owned a lot of Christmas trees, but this is by far the nicest artificial tree I’ve ever seen.

It’s so full, and I love how the branches are set up and stick out of the tree. It makes decorating much easier.

I also added a star to the top of the tree. As you might have guessed, it’s vintage. I found it on eBay. Shopping eBay can be a great source for beautiful vintage ornaments and tree toppers.

The topper is kind of perfect. It’s easy to see why I’m loving how this tree came together.

In addition to the new tree and topper, I also have a brand new tree skirt. Last year I used a table cloth, but wasn’t completely satisfied with the look. This year I found this incredible tree skirt from Red Envelope. Unfortunately, they are no longer in business, so I will treasure this purchase.

The detail in it is stunning. I also love how it ties in with the bottom colors of the tree. What luck, right?

All of the balls on the tree are glass. I have a bit of a glass ornament obsession. (As you can see.) If you’re wondering, I tried to count and there are over 300 ball ornaments on this tree. Say what!?

There are all different types of ball ornaments on this tree. Some are matte, some are shiny. Some are small, some are large.

There are event some glittery ones tucked in here and there. The only qualification is that they were glass and a ball.

Wait, I lied. I have a few glass bird ornaments tucked in here and there.

The ribbon around the tree is burlap.

She’s a beauty, right?

Oh, in case you’re wondering, my vintage-inspired tree has been relocated to the dining room. (You can learn how to make those candlesticks on the table here.)

Initially I tried this tree in there, but it was just a bit too big for the space. This is a much better fit.

    Your gradient and vintage trees are both so beautiful, I can’t decide which one I like better. Any chance you can share where you got the ornament hangers? They’re so much prettier than the cheesy wire ones I use.
