Our family always looks forward to decorating the tree because it really kicks off the season and puts us in a holiday spirit!

This year we’re especially excited to trim the tree because we designed our own Buffalo Check Tree Skirt for McGee & Co.! We really wanted to create something classic and timeless so it will be a part of your holiday decor for years to come. Buffalo check is a traditional pattern that we love to use—especially on an oversized scale. We went with a neutral tone-on-tone pattern in a rich texture. Don’t miss the details, like the beautiful lining and striped ties!

Our Trimming Tips

  • STEP ONE: The first layer we like to add is the ribbon. It sets the tone and color palette for the rest of the tree. This year I went with a neutral pattern that will pair with any ornament and keep things feeling classic and put together.
  • STEP TWO: The next thing you’ll do is add in the ornaments, spreading them evenly throughout the tree in a zig-zag pattern, rather than straight rows. Spread out repeat and coordinating ornaments so the tree doesn’t feel too uniform. 
  • STEP THREE: Make sure to walk around and make sure everything feels balanced. Don’t hesitate to rearrange until everything feels just right. 

We filled McGee & Co. with some of the ornament favorites from last year, as well as some new ones! You know we love a natural touch, so Shea often leaves quite a bit of greenery showing to keep things feeling fresh. Our design philosophy applies when decorating a tree: we want to create a curated, collected look by decorating with a variety of colors,  patterns, and textures.

Our tree toppers are bright and bold, but simple enough to stay classic. We love the vintage feel they have.
