I absolutely love Christmas, it has always been my favourite time of the year. I love the colours, the sights, the songs, the smell of pine and the absolute joy that I get from the smiles on my kids faces when we start decorating for the holidays. My entire adult life I have never had anything new for the holidays, something just bought for me and the family. I have always had a hand me down tree and hand me down ornaments and Christmas décor that didn’t have any sentimental value for anyone else. Not that I have any problem with that whatsoever but I really wanted to just go out and buy my own tree and do my own thing. This year, I finally did and thanks to Canadian Tire and the Canvas Christmas Collection, I may have the most spectacular tree on my whole block.
They make it easy to decorate and choose beautiful colour schemes to match any mood, décor or moment. I was in awe when I stepped into the showroom at Eglinton and Laird. I was in Christmas heaven. The store looked like how I’ve always pictured my house could be if given the chance. It was filled with so many colours and decorations I could have spent an entire day there and still would have come back for more. The Canvas line is so beautiful and with so many choices I had a hard time deciding how I wanted the final look.
I really loved the Teal collection and I wanted my first non hand me down Christmas tree to look like the one Monika Hibbs, a blogger from Vancouver, had done. I went online to look at all of the things she used and thought that it was definitely easy enough for even me to do. It totally was and I had the tree up and decorated almost like Monika’s tree but with a little more of me.
I am so happy with how my tree turned out and it’s gorgeous. If you didn’t know it was an artificial tree, you wouldn’t be able to tell from looking at it. I purchased the Canvas Holiday Mixed Willow Lifelike Tree and it’s gorgeous and I am finally in my happy place with my tree. I already know this tree will last me a lifetime. Even little man had fun helping me with the tree and although he kept wanting to take the ornaments off the tree, the Canvas Christmas collection ornaments are even toddler proof and did not crack or break even when he threw one. This was such a relief for me to have such beautiful decorations that even my toddler couldn’t break.
The Canvas Christmas collection made it so easy to get the look I love and you can easily get this look or any of the other colours yourself by visiting Canadian Tire and checking out the Canvas for Christmas collection. Stay tuned for my next post that looks at how easy the Canvas Christmas Collection makes entertaining, even with my big bunch.
