Christmas Trees

O' Christmas Tree

The Christmas tree is the world wide symbol of Christmas. There are many ways to decorate your Christmas tree, from traditional to whimsical. Your Christmas tree should reflect your own personal style and loves.

This is a picture of our family Christmas tree in the living room. This year it is decorated with all of our treasured ornaments that have either been given to us, bought on a family vacation or made by the kids. This tree they always get to help me decorate. 

This is the tree that is in our kitchen. It is our "treasures of the sea" tree I decided to do this year. All of the seashells have been collected by us during our travels to Florida, the Bahamas, or Jeff's travels to China and Taiwan. The starfish on the top he brought home from his last trip to China. To make the ornaments I hot glued ribbon to them, clear coated them and then sprayed them with adhesive and glittered them.

The pictures above are of a traditional "ball" tree we do every year upstairs on the landing. This has become also a favorite for us because we are always on the hunt for a new and different Christmas ball to add to this tree.

These are pictures of a table top tree I found in a Cupcake shop inside the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas. It is done in a whimsical style with lollipops, cupcakes, icecream cones, and candy garland. It was adorable!

Recently we took our children on vacation over Thanksgiving to Disneyland in California. Obviously, the highlight is the huge tree in the center of Main Street inside the Disneyland park. But there were also many other interesting trees to be found there. Here are just a few examples of some of the trees we saw around the park. 

The tree inside the Goofy's Kitchen restaurant.

The children by the tree on the boardwalk inside the California Adventure park.

These are just some of the wonderful Christmas trees we have seen this season. Any Christmas tree is magical because of the love, hard work and thought that goes into creating them. 

Wishing you peace, love and holiday blessings,
