A Look At My First Christmas Tree Living in LA
Happy Monday! I’m excited to share a look at my first Christmas tree living in LA! As you know I moved to LA in June and now I’m spending my first Christmas in my first ever apartment. Of course I had to decorate it for the holidays as it is my first place I have lived in by myself. I’ve been wanting to decorate it for months and already had everything planned out. So on December 1st I decorated and now I’m excited to share a look at my first Christmas tree living in LA!
So growing up, my parents and I would decorate our tree after Thanksgiving and buy some decorations on Black Friday. Well this year I had no previous decorations so I went out on Black Friday and bought my tree. I got it at Target and it was on sale for only $30. I picked a pre-lit one this year as I always have problems with lights and putting them on and since I’m by myself this year with no help then it was smart for me to already have one pre-lit. I wanted a taller one but I ended up with a 6ft again and this is better then the one I had in Manila. It’s perfect for my first tree and very easy to assemble that I got it up in an afternoon. So here’s a look at my first Christmas tree living in LA and now I can show you the theme.
I went with a red and gold theme. I love the sparkliness and so I went with a lot of glitter. The ornaments I went with are all from Target again and I went with the standard bauble ornaments and a few specialty ones to show meaning in my tree. I never had a perfect tree growing up where it looks like it’s on display so I didn’t want that but I still wanted it to look good. I tried to get the red and gold ornaments as even as possible. Then I got a giant silver swarovski crystal “J”, a sparkly crown to signify my blog and thought it was cute and then a santa 2018 to signify my move here. Then I put a gold sparkly star tree topper to finish it off.
This shot was the first I took and it was an accident but I loved it. I always love the bokeh effect and it looks so pretty.
So this was a look at my first Christmas tree living in LA! I am so happy with it and love how my apartment is looking. You saw my bedroom yesterday here and the bedding is so festive and I love them so much. My bedside table is here too as I wanted a very Christmas wonderland. I hope you enjoyed a look at my first Christmas tree living in LA and all my decor. Also let me know what your place looks like and what your tree theme is this year.
