I have to admit I never look forward to putting up our Christmas trees, but once they’re up and decorated I love them and hate to see the season end. So, I thought it might be fun to give you a peek through our front door and show you our trees; plus a few ideas on how you can personalize your Christmas tree and make it shine.
This tree stand in our kitchen – we leave it up all year. It looks like a Colonial feather tree and we keep Primitive ornaments on it. My favorite part – I never have to take it down or put it back up.
I found this Family Photo Christmas Tree at Better Homes and Gardens. Do you put family photos on your tree? You can hang them in tiny ornament frames, or make your own frames using scrapbooking supplies.
While getting my hair cut the other day, my stylist shared that she loves her white tree and has no idea what color ornaments and lights she’ll use this year. This Whimsical Tree at HGTV would look great in any modern colorful space. I love the bright atypical colors on this tree.
I’ve spent many Christmas celebrations in the north woods of Michigan; so, this North Woods Christmas Tree – from Midwest Living brought back lots of memories. Magnolia sprigs, pinecones, and knotty pine walls . . . add a beautiful fireplace and you have a taste of home.
Maybe snowmen and sledding is not your idea of holiday bliss,. If you’d prefer warm gentle breezes and sandy beaches, then this Sparkling Starfish Tree at Better Homes Garden is for you. Simple green flowers, starfish, and sand dollars give this tree that Florida feeling.
Whether you need your tree to be mobile or not, this is a beautiful way to show off a small tree. Thanks to HGTV for sharing this fit anywhere idea.
This is our new Christmas Tree. We like a more traditional look – so, we use white lights, deep red, gold, and white ornaments. I would like to add ribbons, but I have a terrible time making ribbon garland look right. If you have any tips this garland challenged gal would love to hear them.
Silver and gold gift boxes and gold bells cover our tiny living room tree. Do you decorate multiple trees at your house? Where would you like to put a tiny tree?
This Charlie Brown Christmas Tree always makes me smile.
Charles Schultz blessed us when he shared the message of hope in A Charlie Brown Christmas Special, when blanket toting Linus took the stage with a simple tree branch decorated with one red ornament and said:
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this [shall be] a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.
