Coastal Tree 2019 #ChristmasTreesonParade

Welcome to the Fourth Annual Christmas Trees on Parade! Hi, I am Terri, the owner and curator for this blog, Christmas Tree Lane!  I am so excited about this year's event. To see the past events, you can see 2018 here, 2017 here and 2016 here! We have a nice group of bloggers who are excited to share their trees with you!  Please visit each one and tell them I sent you!


I am sharing the tree we decorate for my daughter's bedroom. My daughter is married and comes home fairly often but we always want to make her room very special when she visits for Christmas. This year is even more important for us. Two weeks ago, two days after moving into their first home, the flat below them caught fire and destroyed four homes, including hers.  Now they are living in temporary housing, for up to 12 months, while their home is restored, rebuilt and refurbished. It is a living nightmare for them.  Thankfully, everyone in their family was safe, even though their beloved dog Huxley had to be rescued.



Since we moved into our home in 2013, our kids have called our home The Resort. We live by a lake, so we named our home Lakeside Resort.  The tree in our daughter's room has a beachy feel, as the neighborhood we live in is called The Beach District (in New Town at Saint Charles.)  We decorate it with family ornament collections, silver bells and a Hallmark series called the 12 Days of Christmas, and beach ornaments that we collect from vacations. Let's take a closer look!


Our newest coast ornament was handmade for us!


My first tip is to select a theme. It is really a great way to focus your ornament collections and to highlight something that you truly love. In addition to the coastal tree, this year I have a travel tree and a pink ribbon tree. It is also an awesome answer to the question, "What can I get you?"  💖




Thanks for stopping by and checking out our Christmas trees!  Go and visit these other blogs for new and interesting decorating tips.

  13. Wonderful ideas for decoration. It reminded me of my Christmas tree and how I used to spend time decorating it. Unfortunately I had to leave it with a friend once I shifted out from the city. Do hope he would take good care this Christmas.
