Festival of Christmas Trees

Let's decorate the Christmas tree!!!! ......or trees????   How many trees do you decorate each Christmas?   The tree is my favorite thing to decorate, and I try to put one in each room....even if it's just a little one.

 I had two trees on each side of the fireplace last year....
This year....I made a lace and satin tree for each side of the fireplace!

I have decorated "out door" trees....
flocked trees....
white trees....
Pastel trees......probably every color of tree!
This is the carousel horse tree from this year....

this flocked tree is from a couple of years ago.
A small silver tree was on the buffet last year...

There are woodland trees on each side of the buffet in the formal dining room this year...

This years tree for the kitchen has a Candy Land theme .......

and I have a second tree in the kitchen this year....
Last year, I had a french drying rack for a tree in the kitchen!
I decorate trees of all sizes!

This Nutcracker themed tree is in the entry way this year....

Last year, I had a tree in our bedroom that I made from vintage wedding dresses...
This year, I used the same tree, but decorated it a little different....

I even have been known to put a tree on the!
a tree in the hallway...sure!

maybe even a Paris themed one in the bathroom! 
I hope you enjoyed seeing my present and past "Festival of Christmas Trees"!

Merry Christmas!


  1. OMG, your trees are so beautiful and so many. I don't know how you do it. Do you stay up 24/7 and decorate? I would not know where to begin. I thought 1 big tree and 2 little ones where enough and that pooped me out.
    Have a great evening Penny.
