Non-Traditional Christmas Tree

I love picking out and trimming a tree for Christmas. This year I decided to take a less traditional route. I was inspired by these cotton branches I saw at my local cheese shop. I love how rustic they felt and also they are an homage to my fiance, who is from the “dirty South”, as he likes to say.

IMG_7803To anchor the branches, I found these lush and fragrant eucalyptus branches at the farmers market. It was easy to arrange and I just added mini ornaments to make it super festive. I had the idea to wrap the base in burlap from a floor display at Pottery Barn to add to the rustic home look. Merry Christmas!
