Christmas Tree Tour: Glam Tree

By | Christmas, Decorating, Holidays | One Comment

Well here we are, down to the very end of the Christmas Tree Tour! Thanks so much for hanging in there with me, I just love sharing my passion with you all! Last year I had my Cupcake Tree in my office, but since I changed it up this year at displayed the cupcake ornaments on a cupcake stand, I still needed a tree in my office. And with all the boys in the house, I needed a splash of glam with this Glam Tree!

The cute little table top stands about 4 feet tall. The white tree used to be in the boys room with baseball ornaments, but they decided it was fine for me to use it. I love all the new color combinations that are popping up lately. The bright pink and blue are so fun and really brighten up my office.

The addition of the pinwheels from the Pinwheel Garland adds a lot of whimsy. The clear ornaments, that we found at Michael’s, were filled with candy and what else…cupcake sprinkles.

Another bright pinwheel and some pink sprinkles this time.

For the topper, we cut 22 – 1 inch wide strips of scrapbook paper, looped and glued to form a flower and a leftover snowflake from the Paper Lanterns was added to the middle.

And in case you missed the rest of the Christmas Tree Tour…here’s a look back at them…

Christmas Tree Tour: Winter Wonderland

By | Christmas, Decorating, Holidays | No Comments

As you may have already figured out…we are a little crazy about Christmas. And this year our decorating has taken many twists and turns and ended up with some of our favorite Christmas decorating we have ever had.

You can see the Holiday Home Tour re-cap and today I am sharing the Winter Wonderland Tree we created for the Living Room.

With the addition of the Twig Trees on the Mantel, we wanted to carry the feeling throughout the room. We started with some branches that we gathered outside, put them in a large bucket and filled it with stones.

Then added some spray snow. We used lights that reminded us a little of snow and also lights that you would see outside. A few white balls that resembled snow balls were hung, some snowflakes and icicles.

I traced an angel and dove patterns onto velum scrapbook paper and simply cut them out. The patterns are from Holiday with Matthew Mead. All the ornaments were hung with fishing line.

I think the Winter Wonderland Tree looks a lot better at night.

Christmas Tree Tour: Photo Tree

By | Christmas, Decorating, Holidays | 3 Comments

Well, I’m back again today with another fun themed Christmas Tree. We are enjoying the Ladder Tree that we put up in the front foyer. And making our way around the house, decorating like little elves.

Today we are sharing our Photo Tree…you have heard of Cookie Exchanges, and of course exchanging presents…well how about a Gift Card Exchange. Instead of mailing out your Christmas cards this year, host a simple get together for family and friends and exchange Christmas cards.

Our Photo Christmas Cards are from Tiny Prints, when I saw the cute little round photo cards, I thought they would make perfect decorations for a themed tree. And you all know how I love to decorate themed Christmas Trees.

We simply punched a hole in the top of the cards {some already had a hole}, tied them up with a ribbon and hung them on the tree.

Whether you host a Christmas card exchange or not, I think the Photo Tree is a fun way to display family photos and Christmas cards from past years as well as this year.

Visit Tiny Prints and check out all the great holiday cards they have!

Christmas Tree Tour: Ladder Tree

By | Christmas, Decorating, Holidays | 12 Comments

I have been looking forward to the Holiday Season for months now. I’m so excited to start sharing some Christmas decorating ideas with you. If you have been around here for a little while, you may remember my Holiday Home Tour from last year.

If you are new…welcome and hold on tight because I get a little crazy around this time of year. You see, I put up 12 Christmas Trees…yes 12! My family thinks I’m just a little crazy, but little do they know I’m extremely crazy…about Christmas, of course!

So today marks the beginning of the Christmas Tree Tour, we are going to start at the front door with this adorable Ladder Tree.

As you may have seen in the Splendidly Homemade Magazine {new online publication that I recently released}, Doug and I LOVE to come up with unusual Christmas Trees. This tree was actually given to us by my sister-in-law {thanks D we LOVE it}. We knew right away we had to share it with you.

The tree is created on a wooden ladder, then some artificial greenery, red berries, red jingle bells and rustic Christmas ornaments like stars and snowmen. Doug added the lights, they are a Micro Set. I love how they make the greenery twinkle. We placed the Ladder Tree in our front foyer, added some of my large snowmen and an antique sled.

And a little peek at the Themed Trees we created for Splendidly Homemade
