Your tree didn't look far off from the one in the magazine to me. Both are beautiful and yes plenty of time to still decorate and I can't wait to see!

That is a beautiful piece of styling and so clever! Looks to me like an apple tree but I wonder how they got it to stand so straight. Thank you for these pictures Colette, I loved them

Sooo pretty Col; there are too many beautiful images here! I will be scavenging in the forest around Beaune in a few weeks for greens and whatever i can find to decorate for Reveillon de Saint Sylvestre. Hopefully i can find some mossy branches like your beautiful tree!

Colette, both your tree and the one in the magazine are beautiful. All the images you have shown are exquisite. I also was just catching-up on your previous post. Your home looks so lovely and festive. Absolutely beautiful.

I have been so overwhelmed with work and life lately and have not been blogging as much, but I had to stop by and wish you and your family a very wonderful Merry Christmas. XO
