12 Bloggers of Christmas with Balsam Hill – A Mixed-Metal Christmas Tree
Hi friends! Christmas is finally starting to make an appearance around our home and we are all absolutely loving the beautiful new evening glow with our mixed metal Christmas tree this year.
You see, this year is extra special because we recently found out all of our belongings in storage in Houston were badly damaged during the hurricane late summer (Harvey, some of you may remember him) and this is why I am super excited and thankful to be partnering with Balsam Hill for this post, 12 bloggers of Christmas, to begin restocking our Christmas decor!
We are currently living in approximately 1500 square feet of space while we build our dream home (you can get caught up on that later here) so we are starting from the ground up and needed a nice, slim tree for our small space plus lots of beautiful ornaments and picks to create our mixed metal tree theme this year.
Speaking of nice, I have always dreamed of having a really nice tree like this but my husband and I were both truly amazed at the beauty and quality of this tree when it arrived. It is so authentic looking and it’s irregular shape makes it perfectly imperfect. If you are in need of a slim tree, this Red Spruce Slim Tree is definitely a beauty to behold!
Another thing I really love about this tree is that it comes in several heights (mine is the 7 1/2′ since our apartment ceilings are 9ft) and next year when we are in our new home with higher ceilings I can grab two more of the same tree in varying heights to create a trio of trees that will make an amazing statement in our living room – I’m getting giddy already for next Christmas just thinking about it!
Another fun thing I started my Christmas decor collection off with is this Lodge Faux Fur Tree Skirt. It’s super luxurious and comes in four diameters and three colors. It will be hard to resist using this one on the couch for a snuggle blanket and I’m sure our sweet pup, Gracie will find her way onto here at some point as well:)!
Also chose this flexible woven decorating ribbon in gold that can be used on your tree or on packages like I used it here.
I chose a mixture of ornaments and picks to create an eclectic mixed metal tree that is interesting and beautiful all at the same time. My favorite thing on the tree I think are these silver and gold leaves picks.
And then of course all of the beautiful ornaments were chosen in a combo of gold and silver to create a mixed metal theme (see full source list at the bottom of this post).
These French Country ornaments in Ombre are a personal favorite as well! They have a beautiful pink tint from the bottom up.
I also chose this neutral Christmas bouquet tree topper. In the past I’ve always just used single picks to make a topper (which usually turned out to be a disaster, btw) so this spray was great for that perfect topper look! It also has a mix of silver and gold that work well with my theme this year.
One thing I really like to do if I have left over ornaments is to fill a vessel or bowl with those extra pretties. It helps to tie another area of my home to my tree plus it creates another little Christmas moment for us to enjoy.
Again, I used gold here and even threw in some blue with hints of silver this time for a pop of color. These ornaments are a combo of the matte gold and the Midnight Frost Ornaments.
And here are 3 simple Tips for creating your own mixed metal tree this year…
- Gather ornaments and picks in silver and gold (or at least a minimum of two metals of your choice).
- Use at least one ornament or tree decor item such as a tree topper or picks that have both of your metal choices included (for example, some of my ornaments are both silver and gold and my tree topper is silver and gold).
- Decorate to your heart’s desire strategically placing your mixed metal ornaments evenly throughout your tree and enjoy!

Your tree is absolutely beautiful ! You always offer such great design inspiration ! I noticed you posted a laundry inspiration picture on your Instagram by artfulhome. Odd question but you don’t happen to know where she got the door knobs in her laundry room ? I checked her Instagram and didn’t see the source. I knew you were building so thought maybe you would know ?
Hi Michelle, I don’t know but I bet if you direct messaged her on Instagram she would be happy to help you out with that info if she can. She’s super sweet! Best of luck and thanks for stopping by!! xo
And thank you for your kind words!!!
Thank you so much ! And I love your tree so much that I’ve decided to do the mixed metals as well. Home Goods had some great ornaments this year and I just ordered some mixed metal Christmas stockings. Too cute !
Also wanted to say that I’m so sorry about your storage unit. It’s never easy to lose memories but you have the best outlook ! You are always so positive and your talent for design is flawless !
I’m so happy you felt inspired, Michelle!! Thanks again! Happy Thanksgiving and I hope you enjoy your mixed-metal tree this year!!! All the best to you and yours:) xoxo
