Red and Gold Christmas Tree – Michaels Dream Tree Challenge

Thank you to Michaels for sponsoring today’s post on the Michaels 2nd Annual Dream Tree Challenge!
Red and Gold Christmas Tree - Michaels Dream Tree Challenge #JustAddMichaels

Hi friends! A couple weeks ago I shared with you that we have already started our Christmas tree shopping at Michaels! That’s right, lights are already aglow in our house and despite being a little confused about the comingling of Halloween and Christmas, our boys are ecstatic! We headed down to our local Michaels who has a TON of fun Christmas crafts, decor and more on the shelves! Ahhh, this is my most favorite time of year!

We started out with bags full of red and lime green ornaments, garlands and more…but then realized that red and gold was really the way to go for our home that would allow us to transition through the Fall and into these holiday seasons. And we’re so happy with our choices! Michaels has everything you need, from great pre-lit trees (hello, easy!), to gorgeous glass ornaments and fun glitter garlands.

We chose red and gold glass bulbs, fun glitter snowflakes and picks, and probably my favorite – gold glittered pinecones!

And the boys picked out some fabulous airplanes and even wanted Mom and Dad to pick out our own fun ornaments, thus the Mr and Mrs Penguin that are gracing this beautiful tree…

The selection was great and we’re in love with how warm and inviting our new Michaels tree is!
