Fairy Tale Christmas Tree

Last Christmas I had a Candy Land theme in the kitchen.....this year the kitchen theme is Fairy Tale....

The kitchen is truly the heart of out home.....the entry and hall to the bedrooms is to your left.....the family room and sun room are to the right

You may remember my post showing how I took bits and pieces to make a short fat Christmas tree....well,  the kitchen is where the tree found a home.

My Fairy Tale Christmas tree is decorated with all kinds of goodies.....

The Fairy Tale Christmas tree is sitting on an antique wooden wheel chair.   I put a rose wreath on both of the wheels and have a Christmas train around the bottom of the tree.

I bought this train at the auction this past summer.....

The train was in a "bundle" of Christmas boxes that I bought for $1!    You can't give away Christmas stuff at the auction during the summer!
As the elves move on this train car,  the bells swing and play Christmas music.

These elves shovel coal as the train moves.......

Here's Santa waving Merry Christmas from the caboose.....all of the figures on the train are animated.

I'm going to share a little secret with you........don't tell anyone.....
The pretty boxes that are around the tree contain the decor that was on the kitchen counters....all that stuff had to go somewhere to make room for the Christmas!

The Hoosier sets to the  right of the tree,  so I sprinkled some fairies around the existing decor....

Woodland Fairies.....

Remember how I said you can't give away Christmas stuff at the auction in the summer time?   Well,  most of the fairies that I used in my kitchen came from the auction this past summer one but me even bid on them......14 fairies @ $5 each!

Merry Christmas from Mrs Claus and her elves!
