If you’ve been a reader for a while, you’ve probably noticed that we’ve been into keeping things simple, minimal and neutral around our homes. And we’re keeping with that trend with our Christmas decorating! We’re partnering with West Elm to share how to style and set up this Scandi-Chic Christmas tree. It’s perfect for small spaces – Caitlin picked out this cute mini tree for her apartment and with a few cozy items from West Elm, it’s perfect for bringing holiday cheer this Christmas season! Head on over to West Elm’s blog, Front + Main, for all the details!

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!

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!

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!
