A Very Robeson Christmas Celebrating 10 Years
Welcome back to a special Christmas edition at Robeson Design.
Hi! I’m Rebecca Robeson and today well let’s just say
大家好 我是Rebecca Robeson 今天呢
I have saved the best for last.
We have uploaded.
This is our fourth Christmas tree this year and
I want to stop for a second and say thank you so much
to the thousands of you
who have left comments on our videos.
I love reading them and I read all of them.
So thank you
And while I’m at it, if you’re not a subscriber of this channel,
please hit the subscribe button and the bell
so that you’re alerted
whenever we upload a new video
and of course give this video a thumbs up.
As in all of my trees,
Matt helped me a lot with this one as well.
So we’re going to show you the process of
how we took it from just a plain green tree
to what you’re about to see.
The next step after we get our tree fluffed and lit
is to put the top on the tree.
You want to do that early
because you don’t want to have balls hanging on the tree
that you might possibly knock off when you’re putting the top on.
So I was trying to think what would I do
on a nostalgic traditional tree
and I think of an angel,
a lot of people put angels on the top of their tree.
Try to starburst up there.
This is an old mirror that I bought
a long time ago at an antique store.
You think it’s too much or do you like it?
You guys think it’s cool?
leave me a comment, let me know
Because I think this is the one we’re gonna go with.
The kind of gunmetal color of the bursts are distracting me
and I either think they need to be super silver
or they need to be gold.
So why don’t we add some gold glitter to it
and hopefully I don’t destroy my vintage mirror.
Let’s, let me have that and let’s take it outside.
We have glue, spray glue.
I have a bunch of random leftover glitter.
Let’s take that off and see what it looks like.
It looks really cool.
She needs to have a bigger piece of wire and
it needs to come around the trunk here.
Now this is the thing that actually inspired this tree this year.
Remember back in the day when they actually used to put candles on the tips of the tree
was very very old fashioned.
– Ah, it’s hot! – It isn’t.
-嗷 太烫了！ -才没有呢
It’s a candle
I found some candles that
remind me of the ones I buy at Pottery Barn that like flicker
and they’re strung to a set.
So I’m gonna do some experimenting with ribbons.
Both of those seem a little orange gold to me.
But I could feature the gold side and through the red side.
Ha. Yeah. That’s what I’m gonna do.
We used this ribbon on a tree that we did for the design session
Well, right now, we’re doing Christmas sessions.
So we did three trees
just for the design sessions members
and this was on one of them and it was gorgeous.
What do you think of this?
Do you see the addition of the plaid ribbon we’ve put on here?
– Do you like that? – Are you gonna mad if I say no?
Welcome back for day two of this tree.
I love these. These are amazing.
And then I have some really beautiful more decorative types.
So you guys, isn’t it nice that I have a helper?
I would highly recommend
that you decorate with a friend.
Matt is an amazing helper and
anything I need in my business just a side note.
Matt, what do you think of Christmas?
I love it.
How cute is that?
How cute is this bicycle?
And a covered wagon.
Now this one I got on sale because it was broken.
And I just tuck it in the tree and hope no one sees.
because that’s my only Rebecca ornament.
– Oh! – So the answer is I prefer glass.
A lot of you guys watch my Christmas videos from last year
and you know that I used cobalt blue
So this year,
I think I’m gonna forego the cobalt
because look how it really stands out
and I’m gonna go with this blue,
which is more of a traditional blue.
This color, this shows up.
So this is the color we’re after.
A lot of times I like to start with
my biggest balls on the bottom,
like I did right there in the front.
I only have one big green one.
How did that happen?
I take this ball
I’m gonna put it deep inside the tree
Start and look Christmassy ha.
You know, I think people
don’t decorate the backs of their trees.
They don’t think anybody sees it.
But I don’t think they realize is that
you can see your eyes pass through the tree.
I mean it just gives it depth.
So we take that back in this direction.
Now you’ve got silver, blue, gold, red and
现在我们已经用了银色 蓝色 金色 红色
their sizes changed not only just the finishes change,
the colors change, but the sizing changes.
That’s what makes that look so pretty all together.
I just took care of Santa’s bum sleigh by filling it with balls.
So what I’m having Matt do right now
is we had an extra string I think of 50 lights
that was on already plugged into the top of the tree just for in case.
What I can tell is that the inside of the tree is really dark
because it’s a green tree and
it’s dense and there are no lights deep into the trees.
So he’s running that one string of lights
and then you’re gonna be able to see
all those ornaments and balls that we’ve stuffed into the center of the tree.
I think that’s vintage angel project that
Matt and I did turned out so beautiful,
start from the top with these beautiful velvet bows
and then the what I call Ribbon Garland,
where I take the ribbon and I essentially wrapped the tree
and a swirling effect down around.
I thought the plaid gave it that little bit of that
old-fashioned nostalgic feel
and then of course these amazing candle lights that flicker.
You’ll notice on the other trees I did this year
I did not include spinners and so
so many of you caught me on that
You’re like where are the spinners
You’ve never seen me do a tree without spinners.
Well, the other themes didn’t go so well with spinners I thought,
but this one a hundred percent.
so keep in mind you want to have a tree skirt that
is definitely bigger than the edge of this
and let me show you this is two curtains.
They’re literally pulled aside and
if I show you one to here, do you know what this is.
This is the white fur tree skirt
and it is no bigger than the very edge of this tree.
So it’s a big difference.
As you notice,
my living room furniture is not in here right now.
I moved it all into the family room
and I’m moving my dining room into this room.
This is where we are going to have Christmas dinner
in front of this tree.
And on the design sessions, I actually have
a whole episode on how to entertain for Christmas
and have your calendar together and be super prepared.
And in my built-in, I decided this year.
Now on some years, you’ll see that
every single cubby is decorated for Christmas
last year I did the cobalt blue and white.
This year, I thought I’m going to keep it simple.
I’m going to keep all of my books where they go
and I’ve turned them around
so that you see the pages not the spines.
Did you notice that?
And in these four cubbies that all I addressed.
I decided to stay with this nostalgic theme
and what was I going to do to tie it all together
to kind of create this amazing symmetrical look.
I use this beautiful velvet and gold ribbon again.
The same ribbon that’s on my tree.
I want to also tell you that I got these carolers at Shinoda,
Shinoda Design Center
which is where most of the things that
you see on my trees and in my decorations,
most of it comes from there.
And then, as I go across to the other side,
look what I have over here.
Put him on this thing.
He has a base that kind of looks like his own base anyway.
And then over on this side and these other ones
I was talking about actually I had to fill them up this morning.
I guess it was only four left. These are so delicious.
So what do you think?
If you like this nostalgic traditional tree,
it is a return back to what we know as our home and our family
and that’s what Christmas is about,
especially this year for me.
The thing that I do when I film
is I look in that lens and I imagine you
a person, a man, a woman, a boy, a child, a girl
可能是男人 女人 男孩 女孩
and I think I want to talk to you.
So I’m doing that right now.
This December completes my 10th year as a YouTube content provider
and we’re gonna take a look back
not just of 10 years on YouTube,
but 10 years of Christmas on YouTube.
We’re gonna have an amazing giveaway this year.
I’m gonna be sharing with you the details.
So while you guys are decorating your homes and
getting your own stuff pulled together,
you’re gonna find so much inspiration on that video.
So come back and watch that it’ll be up very soon.
Have a very very Merry Christmas.
We’ll see you back here for another video soon and
just remember 2019 best year ever!
All right, god bless.
How do you like that show we put on for you.
All those airplanes? Just for a starburst.
