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. 🙂

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.
