Fa la la la Fox Hunt was such a traditional week of tartan plaids, classic pieces, and antiques blended with modern pieces to formulate our families first ever Fox Hunt Christmas tree.
I started with my new flocked tree from Amazon that I am obsessed with. I installed the tree from the box in less than 15 minutes by myself. Yes it was messy but totally worth all the vacuuming, it is so gorgeous.
I added 1200 white wire/ white lights (12/100 light boxes) to the tree. Then I began layering and bustling in wide solid red ribbon & wide tartan with velvet ribbon. I purchased 25 plastic toy horses from the dollar tree and spray painted them metallic gold. I then knotted a fishing line to them so that I could make them into ornaments.
I pulled my fox hunt tea set collection from the pantry, added tartan ribbons, and hung them on the tree. I also hung vintage hunting napkin rings and @pomgrante_inc printed napkins from the tee. This tree stands in the hearth area of our kitchen, so I found it perfectly fitting to add pieces from the dinning room.
I have antique horse riding hats that I added to the tree and a hunting horn that I placed at the top of the tree from a large bow. The tree also has tassels, silver glass ornaments & silver mint julep glasses.
I framed family equestrian pictures in gold frames and hung them from tartan ribbon on the tree. My sweet friend @stylinbrunette made our family custom tartan monogrammed ornaments and I ordered some other custom Fox ornaments.
Horse figurines, bits, and equestrian flair from around the house are placed all over the tree. Horse trophies hang from branches and a stone horse head sits below the tree on a horse-bit tray. Instead of a tree skirt I chose to use a gray basket and love the extra space it gives.
I placed Hunter riding boots under the tree and Mr.McGee our new fox sits beside the tree in a chair. McGee was a gift from some dear friends for the theme tree.
Mixing vintage collections, family photos, and dollar tree bargains makes this tree completely #airicapuckettstyle!! If you've found inspiration in this tree, I've linked lots of similar items in my Amazon account here!
Merry Falalala Fox Hunt!!
