Christmas Trees on Parade!

Join me on a lovely parade of Christmas trees from Blogland!  You will see an amazing amount of beautiful trees, all from blogs that I love.  Each blog will offer tips for decorating a tree as well, featured in italics so it is easily found!



My decorating tip:  If at all possible, have your tree visible through a window.  It make the most charming background on the inside and the prettiest decoration from the outside!

In my home there are currently three full sized trees decorated for Christmas.  This is down from five last year and down from thirteen in years past.  My living room tree is now housing all our family ornaments, including those handmade, from vacations and collectibles.  It has over 300 ornaments on a skinny tree.  In my eyes it is simply beautiful.

The tree I am sharing with you, though, is my daughter's tree.  This is in our guest room, which our daughter claims as her own.  That's fine by me, I want her to visit as often as she can!!  This tree has a seaside theme to it.  There are two family collections of ornaments, one are sleigh bells given to my husband while he was a principal and the other a Hallmark collectible on the 12 Days of Christmas. The silver bells and clear acrylic make perfect accompaniments to the starfish, greens and silvers of the tree.

A few special ornaments give a tree focus and beauty.  We love the soft green of the stocking and the adorable tag.

  4. Green is one of my favorite colors. :) We have a similar sleigh bell on our tree. And I'm loving the starfish! My youngest daughter and I made a beachy Christmas wreath and it has starfish and shells from South Carolina. :)
    Thanks so much for putting the parade together for us, Terri!

  5. I love the memories each ornament holds. Beautiful tree, beautiful ornaments. I'm also impressed by how many trees you've done in the past. My family has never done more than one. I've always dreamed of having two though!

  6. I'm also a huge fan of the green and white decor for the tree! I really want to have a tree that's only white or only gold ornaments one year!

  9. I really like the idea of having the tree by the window, because it's beautiful from inside and outside. Both perspectives are nice when it comes to a tree! xx Adaleta Avdic
