So happy that you stopped in today! For today’s visit, I am sharing several of the Christmas trees in my home. This may be photo overload but here it goes….
The first photo I shared was from my Living Room looking into the Sun Room. My Living Room tree is years of memories of Christmas past. Most of these have been collected over the 29 years Donnie and I have been married.
Looking from the Living Room, the Sun Room tree has a bird theme.
My home is very traditional and most of my decor is also traditional. This one tree is woodsy and rustic and gives me the opportunity to embrace more of the country style.
I found beautiful ribbon with red berries that I tied in bows and used as fillers throughout the tree. I also filled a distressed wood box with holly berries and sat at the base of the tree.
The cardinal ornament was hand painted by my aunt Brenda.
Let’s move on to the foyer…
This is the tree I named the Butterfly Tree but it could easily be called a Rainbow Tree. I found a pack of beautiful colored butterflies at Hobby Lobby and basically modeled the colors of this tree after those butterflies.
I went with a very narrow tree this year only because last year’s tree had so many lights out that I had to make a quick trip to the store and came home with this. I like it but may go back with a fuller tree next year.
Isn’t it happy and bright? I think it goes great with my orange wall, too.
Let’s move to the Kitchen and my Gingerbread Man Tree…
Another narrow tree that has to fit in a very small space, the Gingerbread Man Tree in my Kitchen is filled with gingerbread men ornaments, homemade cinnamon ornaments (they smell great) and silver kitchen tools. My newest addition this year is the Raz marshmallow garland. I totally fell in love with the garland last year and really wanted to add it to my tree.
I went very simple with the decor in the Kitchen. I host a few dinners and usually sit food on the counters for a buffet. It’s good to have large items I can move out of the way when needed.
Rosemary is always a good idea. I have a large rosemary bush in the back yard and clip sprigs for seasoning while cooking and for just sitting around the house for it’s fresh scent. I also use it for garnish and decor. For this simple vanilla cake, a little rosemary makes it look festive.
I’ve already shared my master bedroom Christmas tree HERE but wanted to include it today just in case you missed it.
And here’s the Harry Potter Christmas Tree that I’ve already shared.
This is not a full tour of my home’s Christmas decorations but it’s all I’ve had time to photograph and share.
I do hope that you’ve enjoyed taking a peek at some of my trees and will stop by again some time.
Until next time,
