I know that I originally said I was keeping my tree a bit more minimal this year, but I lied. This was one of those shower ideas that I conveniently had the resources for at my fingertips. I think the ribbon is a great feminine touch, and the bows tie the tree off perfectly! As I type this, I'm remembering that by Christmas day last year, I ended up with a big gold bow balanced on the top of the tree, if only just to keep it out of the way after taking pregnancy announcement photos for my brother and sister-in-law. The bows have come full circle!
Let me know if you'd ever try this on your own tree!
