Christmas this year brings a return of the “We Three Trees”.
What began as a compromise because I didn’t have one large tree has become one of my favorite things.
My color scheme is the same as last year but other than the trees being in the same place I purposely tried to make everything else a bit different.
My tree “stands” are the table that normally sits here throughout the year, a printed burlap and leather box/end table from Marshalls and a collection of stumps.
One stump seemed lost all by itself so I gathered 3 together.
The “tree skirt” on the smallest tree is a Reproduction French Grain Sack from Online Fabric Store.
The medium size tree sits in a linen lined wire basket. Because this little guy has an equilibrium problem he’s being held steady by three bricks which I covered with fabric.
But don’t look at him funny. He may still topple over.
Silver, white and neutral with a touch of burlap for the trees.
The mother-of-pearl Nativity, my Dad gave me years ago, found a home on the sofa table.
All the colorful ornaments, including those special kid’s-photo-ornaments-that-you-will-never-part-with, found a home just off the kitchen in the office. This room is our office/computer room/homework space/music space/etc room.
A small tree decorated with lights and silver snowflakes sits in on a dresser in the master bedroom.
This year my Christmas decorating was a whirlwind. We had 2 church Christmas parties scheduled for the first weekend in December. I began decorating and cleaning on Wednesday night. By Saturday, the night of the first party, I needed quick and easy to finish the job.
The entry hall table received a quick spray of fresh cut garland in a vase.
More of the fresh garland filled the empty planter on the front porch along with a small lighted tree. All the outside lanterns received lighted wreaths as well.
A set of Glitter Jingle Bells from LaurieAnna’s was added to my “it’s seen better days but still looks good from a distance” winter wreath.
Here’s a glimpse of our “We Three Trees” from the front door.
I love driving through neighborhoods at night and seeing a peek of their inside Christmas lights.
When we drive home you come to the garage side of the house first. At night, during the Christmas season, I’ll purposely drive the long way around to come up to my house from the other direction just so I can see our trees from the street. Makes me smile every time.
