    I am really digging this 🙂 I love having a big tree in my living room, but something like this would be perfect for my dining, bedroom or office 🙂 very nicely done!ReplyCancel

    I love your little tree in the basket. It inspired me to get my small artificial tree from the attic, and place it in a similar basket.
    Thanks for the inspiration!ReplyCancel

    Quick question, is this a fresh tree or a faux, and where did you get him, he’s so plump and cute?!ReplyCancel

      It’s a real tree – we got it at our local grocery store, Wegmans! 🙂ReplyCancel

      Hi Sarah – if you’re talking about the hanging garland, it’s actually a felt ball garland! It’s from West Elm!ReplyCancel

    Hi Manda- how did you steady your tree in the basket? How did you keep it watered?ReplyCancel

    • MandaSunday, November 27, 2016 - 2:49 pm

      Hi Tara – the tree came with a stand, and we set the stand on an upside down bucket inside the basket. The stand around the tree held water, so that’s how we kept it watered, we just had to pull the blanket aside and then add water. You can see pictures of the inside of the basket and stand here – hope that helps!ReplyCancel

    Probably a dumb question but how did you get the tree to stand in the basket? It’s so beautiful!ReplyCancel

    • MandaSunday, November 27, 2016 - 2:46 pm

      Hi there – the tree came with a stand, and we set the stand on an upside down bucket (to make it tall enough) inside the basket. You can see some pictures of that process at here. Hope that helps!ReplyCancel

    Hi! Just wondering if you remember how tall your tree was roughly?ReplyCancel

    • Caitlin McGrathMonday, November 28, 2016 - 11:29 am

      It was about 50″ from the base to the very top!ReplyCancel
