Yes. That title has the word ‘Christmas’ in it. And yes, I do know it is June. I mean, June 29th is almost time for Christmas in July and I do already have a twinkling tree in the barn…
And you know what the best thing is about this project? It combines two things that I absolutely love. Christmas and fresh flowers. A sprinkle of Christmas cheer is perfect anytime of the year – and Christmas with fresh flowers? Even better.
This project was so much fun to work on. It started out with an idea for decorating a tree using natural touches and a ‘woodland’ theme. And it kind of meandered around into a tree that was perfect for summer with flowers.
Where I started
I started out with the color scheme of the tree -with the tree style, ornaments and picks. And that pointed me in a direction with the flowers.
We used a Balsam Hill Sanibel Spruce which is a beautiful soft sage color tree that creates a lovely backdrop for the ornaments and flowers.
For the decorations I chose natural bleached pinecone picks, a natural rich neutral ornament set along with beautiful beaded golds– and a new favorite- strands of battery operated LED pinecone garland. They are a GAME CHANGER folks. (and on Clearance right now!)
From there- I chose what flowers would fit the color scheme based on what my supplier had in stock- and got started.
Fresh Flowers & Greens
I ordered several favorites:
- White peonies
- Blush peonies
- Baby’s Breath
- Chocolate Lace
I wanted the tree to have an ‘earthy’ natural feeling. And chose filler foliage, chunky filler flowers and some smaller accents. Then I played a bit, tinkered here and there-and then called it good.
I love how this natural tree turned out- full of so many things that I love all mingling together with the magic of Chrismas.

What do you think of this Christmas in June tree?
Disclosure: I work with Balsam Hill as their Brand Ambassador -but my love of Balsam Hill and Christmas in June is my own.
