Oh Christmas Tree

Every year I have a desire to do something unique and different with our Christmas tree, but most always end up doing the same thing year after year, and this year is no different.  Up went the same tree with the same ornaments.

Recently though, while on a little getaway, the Mister and I visited several Christmas stores and I was tremendously inspired.  My plans are to start collecting ornaments through out the year to place on next year's tree.  My problem with this, besides the obvious huge financial cost, is deciding on what theme and or color scheme to go with.  I have been looking at so many different styles of trees, some of them are definitely not my style but I still find them unique and interesting.  Here are a few for your viewing pleasure.

Primitive Christmas Tree
I love the muted colors and the shape of this primitive tree

Owl Fall inspired tree
This has more of the Fall colors with the dried flowers but how cute are those Owls!

Pink Christmas tree
What a beautiful retro feel with the wonderful pink tree with the clear ornaments.

Modern blue and green Christmas tree
Turquoise blues and greens with the muted white tree inside an urn.  What a lovely modern tree with a retro feel.

Twig Christmas tree
How different is this tree?  I could totally see it at a sea side cottage during the holidays.

Candy colored Christmas tree
How fun is this explosion of candy colors and monkeys.

Feather Christmas tree
A darling feathered Christmas tree placed in a ladies dressing area.

Sleigh Christmas tree
How about decorating a sleigh instead of a Christmas tree?

Whimsical Christmas tree
This tree is chocked full of whimsy.

Peacock Christmas tree
Peacocks, turquoise and purple ornaments and feathers decorate this lovely tree.

I hope you enjoyed looking at all of the different trees like I do.  If you celebrate Christmas, what does your tree look like?


  1. Our tree is a ceramic tree painted by my Dad years ago before he even married my Mom I believe. We've been using it for three years straight. It's a great way to keep a little of Dad with us this year!

    1. What a sweet way to remember your dad and have a piece of him with you during the holidays. My own fathers health is failing and we fear this will be our last Christmas with him so I understand how hard it must be for you.

  2. There are so many awesome trees here! I'd love to have a pink tree but my husband doesn't like artificial trees.

  3. I hear you loud and clear on all points, and have also vowed to start looking to expand (and at the same time create a more cohesive overall look with) my ornament/decor collection. These trees are stunning! I love the pink ones most, but at the same time, really can't get enough of the autumn-y owl one either.

    May your holiday season sparkle with joy and merriment, sweet lady!

    1. My decorations are sparse this year, having a toddler grandchild living with us at the moment, and those things we have put out will more than likely not survive him through the holiday! lol But Im hoping that next year I will be able to go all out with decking the halls.

      I hope you have a wonderful Christmas as well!
