Last year we lived in an apartment, so getting a 3 foot tree and proping it on an end table was perfect, but this year, our house could definitely accomodate a large tree. Soooo... we bought an 8 foot tree. Haha, it definitely didn't seem like that big when we were standing in the tree lot, but once we lugged that bad boy into our living room, we realized that we just purchased a beast.
And then... I realized I had to put lights in the whole thing... That took me two evenings to accomplish. Trying to get that whole thing lit in just one night was way to intense for me. Not to mention the fact that we actually ran out of lights, since we didn't anticipate the Goliath that is our Christmas tree... But the tree has been lit, and the ornaments hung.
Here are a few other accents in our home to accompany our silver, green, and purple themed tree.

Since the toffee was not as much as a success as I had anticipated, I am switching to butterscotch. Hopefully, that will be tonight... but stay tuned to see how Butterscotch Chocolate Oatmeal cookies turn out.
