Black and White Simplicity

I'm loving the black and white trend that seems to be popping up in everyone's Christmas decorations this year. It fits perfectly into my everyday decor so I ran with it!

This is our first time ever to have a banister to decorate. Instead of wrapping it with garland (which would have been pretty too), I thought it'd look nice with a handful of wreaths.
Want to know my trick for getting them to stay in place? Poster tack! You can find something similar here. Sneak a tiny bit right under the ribbon and you're golden.

Then there's our tree...
This picture is post massive fall, i.e. shattering lots of ornaments and scaring us to death at 2:30 in the  morning! I'm talking base and all, which means we were not only cleaning up glass but lots of water too. Fun times. We're still not sure how/why it happened exactly. Maybe it was our silly elf playing a mean, mean trick. ;)

Yikes!! And, that tree looks huge! I've been loving all the black and white stripes, lucky you, it couldn't be more perfect for your staircase! Hope you had fun decorating new surroundings!

I have not yet used black-and-white but it is a great color combination. The wreaths are pretty, Dana. Sorry about the tree and the mess - must truly have been very scary to happen in the middle of the night. Perhaps it was too weighted on one side?
