we happened to get our tree a couple weeks ago at the most incredible tree farm ever. it's kind of our secret place now since every tree is a whopping $10 (!!!!) incredible, wouldn't you say? we kind of put off finding a tree until 4:00 in the afternoon that saturday, which meant by the time we got to the tree farm we had to find our christmas tree in the dark. thankfully each tree was perfect. I mean PERFECT. so our only problem was trying to decided between one perfect tree and another. which turned out to be more difficult than expected.
did I mention it was freezing? well, it was freezing. i didn't even bring a pair of mittens!
we couldn't wait to get home and decorate the tree, in fact we stayed up until two o'clock in the morning carefully tying sage green ribbon to each one of my ornaments . The tree has about 150 ornaments, counting the chandelier pieces I made earlier on. The rest of the gold, silver and ivory glass balls were purchased at none other than goodwill for $1.99 for a pack of 12. talk about a steal.
78 glass ornaments - $12 all together
1 beautiful noble fir - $10
tree stand - $15
martha stewart christmas tree lights - $32 for 3
total for tree: $72
amount remaining: $20.50
