It’s the 10th day of the 12 Days of Christmas series and today is all about Christmas Trees. Of course, the song, O Christmas Tree, is looping in my head. My favorite version is this one by Aretha Franklin. As I’m humming, I’m also excited about sharing four beautiful Christmas tree decorating ideas.

My daughters say I don’t come visit them enough. Truth is, my house is the central gathering spot and most of our family get-togethers happen here. I thought I’d surprise my daughters and drop by with camera in hand. Of course, I called first because I am southern to the core and we always call first. 🙂

DIY Woodland Theme – Daughter #1

Holly's Tree - Beautiful Christmas Tree Decoration Ideas

I simply love this tree! Holly is so gifted and she made many of these ornaments herself.

Traditional and Eclectic Designs – Daughter #2

Daughter #2 lives in a historic Dutch Colonial on Main Street and goes all out when it comes to Christmas decor. Every year, she puts up at least 4 trees. She has two traditional trees.

She also has a pink/lime tree in her sunroom and the kids have a Hallmark tree in their upstairs den. I start a Hallmark ornament collection for each grandchild on their first Christmas.

I love everything about Rebekah’s house and Christmas decor.

Scandinavian With Classic Elements – Daughter #3

Daughter #3 is a minimalist and likes clean lines. Caitlin’s tree is so pretty and has me wishing for snow.

My Tree

I was late to the party this year. I normally have all my Christmas decor up before Thanksgiving (blogging world, you know) but this year I cut down on the decor. It was a few days after Thanksgiving before this baby went up.

I meant to get a photo before I started stacking gifts. Oops. When you have 5 grandkids and you actually do your Christmas shopping early, they start stacking up. I don’t have a lot of storage in this house, so as soon as I wrap/bag gifts, they go under the tree.

My tree is usually a hodgepodge of collected ornaments that have been accumulated over the years. I will always keep those handmade ornaments the kids made at school. I also collect ornaments when I travel. This year, I hung those ornaments on my tabletop dining room trees. My main tree is decked out in red and white, plus my Father Christmas collection.

My oldest daughter gives me the new Hallmark Father Christmas ornament each year to add to my collection. Isn’t that sweet?

If you want to take some photos of the lights blurred on your tree, here’s my tutorial.

I didn’t include my daughter-in-law because she and my son are busy moving into their new house. They just recently closed on it and they hope to be in it and settled by Christmas. She has a Starbucks tree and I can’t wait to see it. I’ll share it when I can.

If you’re looking for a new Christmas Tree, Wayfair has some pretty ones and the prices are very reasonable.

Whenever we travel, we get a new ornament from that place to put on our tree. So our tree is full of memories.

Amber Myers December 10, 2018 - 8:18 am

These are pretty! Our tree has a bunch of mis matched ornaments on it, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. They all mean something. I can’t do bows or ribbons because the cats would attack them.

Karen December 10, 2018 - 8:30 am

I adore these themes so much. Decorating the tree is my favorite part of Christmas. You can do so much with it!

candy December 10, 2018 - 8:32 am

I love the homemade christmas ornaments they are always some of my favorites. We have picked up some beautiful hand crafted ornaments on our travels.

Jeanette December 10, 2018 - 9:10 am

Oh my gosh this looks beautiful! I am nowhere near creative enough to do something like this. I will have to enjoy it in these pictures. They are gorgeous.

Bohemian Babushka December 10, 2018 - 9:46 am

Apparently your hijas inherited their mother’s sense of keen and classy style. BB loved ALL those trees, and of course, café lover, look forward to seeing that Starbucks arbol. 🎄😁😉

Melissa December 10, 2018 - 10:02 am

I love Christmas. It is my favorite time of the year. You have given me so much inspiration! Thanks for the gorgeous ideas!

Tomi C December 10, 2018 - 10:30 am

Thanks for that photo tutorial. I love taking pics of my tree as a backdrop but it’s an epic fail every single time. Can’t wait to try your technique and post the pics to Facebook

Brandy Tanner December 10, 2018 - 1:32 pm

These are some pretty cute Christmas tree decoratring ideas. I need to get ours decorated tonight. We cut it down this weekend and have it in the tree stand, ready for us.

Tasheena December 10, 2018 - 2:54 pm

The trees are so pretty. I love the various themes for each one. I typically, try to change up my color scheme each year.

Marie InteriorFrugalista December 10, 2018 - 4:23 pm

Thank you so much, Alli for sharing your family’s Christmas trees with us. They are all beautiful! I’m about simple traditional trees but when my eyes saw your daughter’s pink & lime tree, my heart skipped a beat. Love it!

Chubskulit Rose December 10, 2018 - 4:59 pm

You have a beautiful Christmas tree. I love how that tree topper looks, so unique and pretty.

Pam December 10, 2018 - 10:43 pm

So many beautiful tree decorating ideas here! We went with a blue and silver themed tree this year.

Terri Steffes December 10, 2018 - 10:47 pm

I love your featured tree. I managed not to get mine added to the link up on time. I cannot get into the routine of adding it early! I loved learning about your tree traditions.

Cathy Mini December 10, 2018 - 11:23 pm

I want the Scandinavian theme so pretty. Decorating the Christmas tree is my favorite part. Love the ideas here!

How many beautiful decoration ideas! I need to show this post to my family. I think I found some ideas to improve our Christmas tree!

Kathy December 11, 2018 - 12:05 pm

I love all of these trees. They’re all so beautiful! I want to go with a colored theme next year. We normally just decorate ours with multiple colors, but I’m loving some of these ideas.

Shoshana Sue December 11, 2018 - 1:00 pm

Oh my word the pink and lime is so unique and stunning! I love all the trees but this one has me captivated

Jenny December 12, 2018 - 5:31 am

These Christmas trees are all fabulous! I like the themes of each of them and just wow! I’m in awe of the beautiful trees your family has.

Super Mom - No Cape! December 12, 2018 - 1:33 pm

It was fun to see how each of your daughters’ and your trees are so different from each other. Our daughters too have very different styles from each other and from me.
