A Scandinavian Red and White Christmas Tree

I’m so excited to share my Scandinavian red and white Christmas tree as part of the Tastemakers 10 blog hop with Balsam Hill! We are celebrating
10 years of amazing Christmas.  This whole week you will find bloggers sharing a favorite set of Balsam Hill ornaments and how they have decorated their tree with them.

The past few years I have been decorating with lots of green and silver.  Last year, I added little pops of red into the Christmas décor and I loved it.   So when I saw Balsam Hill’s Nordic Frost Ornament Set, I knew that was the one!

 Be sure to read all the way to the end, one lucky reader is in for a big surprise!

A Scandinavian Red and White Christmas Tree

I normally pull out the Christmas Tree and get it set up right after Thanksgiving…but I have to admit, I had a lot of fun getting my Christmas Decor up before Thanksgiving this year.  Although it felt a little strange decorating a tree while it was hot outside, I’ll get to relax this Christmas season!

I love all the details in these ornaments, especially the hand-applied beading and glitter accents.

Beautiful hand painted ornaments

  2. Your tree is gorgeous Kristin! The red and white is so fun and festive! I used red the last few years and loved it and doing the same this year. That ornament set is beautiful! Your sweet pups are adorable. I can’t wait to decorate this year! Thank you for sharing your beautiful tree and home with us. xo

  3. I have put up a red and white Scandanavian style tree for several years now. It is one of my favorites of several trees I put up. Would love to have some of thise ornaments.My tree has lots of red and white hearts on it.

  4. I am obsessed with the winter frost glass ornament set!! However, I have to admit that after seeing how the little pops of red look on your tree, I’m debating that set as well!!

  5. Love everything on here and a big fan of Balsam Hill. I would love to get myself the CLASSICS COLLECTION

  6. I really love the ornaments you chose and I really need to replace a lot of mine. If i won I think I would get the Nordic set too or the MISTLETOE AND HOLLY GLASS ORNAMENT St.

  7. The Balsam Hill trees are beautiful! We have a tree but have not gotten any of their ornaments yet. I love the French county ornaments and the mercury glass ornaments.

  8. Your tree is just beautiful! One of my favorites of all the blogs I’ve seen today. I love the idea of decorating before Thanksgiving. We have always cut down our own Christmas tree, but we were thinking of getting an artificial one this year. The Balsam Hill trees look so pretty, so I would put the gift card toward a new tree.

  9. I actually would probably get a tree. We’ve always gotten real ones, but they are expensive year after year. This would probably push me over the edge to artificial because they are really nice looking.

  10. Your tree is very pretty and festive. I plan to decorate our tree with mainly red and white ornaments this year, so those would be my pick. I love the Scandinavian style. Or maybe I would select the baby potted spruce.

  11. I would purchase the same ornaments you used on your tree – the hand painted Nordic set. I also use red, white and silver on my tree!

  12. They have such beautiful things at Balsam Hill! It’s hard to decide, but I love the blown glass ornaments. Especially the owls!
