I am so so so very excited to be sharing the first ever Bekuh & Ryan Browning Christmas tree. We're two big kids at heart, and decorating for Christmas, and all the crafting that has ensued because of it has made me giddy with delight (and Ryan really happy. He's never giddy). He came home after a meeting the other morning to me sitting on the ground in front of the Christmas tree all lit up, like a kid.
We spent a lot of time figuring out what to do with decorating the tree, because we're a little short on ornaments. I have this thing where I don't want to just buy a bunch of so-so ornaments but collect precious ones over years of Christmases. That being said we still wanted a "fully" decorated tree. Ryan had the genius idea of using some of my scrap fabric garlands in the studio to wrap around the tree; it added that little touch of homemade that I adore in everything.
As our engagement gift my Aunt Dana gave Ryan and I a gift card to Hallmark to pick out our first Christmas ornament together. It took us months to decide and I'm happy to share the silly Snoopy and Woodstock ornament we chose for our tree.
My mom was gracious enough to bring over some vintage ornaments from my grandparent's collection and a few of my childhood ornaments too. The pretty little elephant on the right was a Christmas gift from my friend Lauren last year and I cherish him. When we had all the ornaments on the tree and vacuumed up the needles I grabbed a couple of old linen tablecloths to use as the tree skirt. I like this all so much better than store bought anything.
Here's our tree all a glow with ornaments and garland. big kiss, bekuh
