Weekend Inspiration: "O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree..."

It is a tradition at my house to put up the tree the day after Thanksgiving ( I don't like Black Friday shopping) or at the very latest, that weekend. I have been racking my brain over a theme this year. I thought maybe I should have one. I guess not having a theme could be a theme...maybe. Either way, sometimes you just need some inspiration to make that tree perfect. There are lots of options. You can choose a color theme, vintage theme, homemade ornaments theme, winter wonderland theme, Santa theme, and the list goes on and on and on and on...Enjoy!
                                                                                                                                         

Up first is a tree from Trendzona. I love the red and green theme going on here. They weren't afraid to go all out and use large items on the tree. Love it!

Southern Living shows us a modern, glamorous tree in peacock blue and sea-foam green. I also love the pot the tree is standing in. And how about that tree topper? Wow!

Purple, purple, purple! Who doesn't love purple?! Throw in some pink and teal and you are in business! This tree from Sassilia is all about purple; and boy, does it deliver!

This winter wonderland theme comes from Homestyle Diary. So beautiful!

Gold. My mother used to decorate one of her trees in golds, white and silver. It was stunning. One of those trees you could just sit and stare at. Wish I had a picture of it. But, luckily, Home Klondike shares this beauty with us.

The rustic look is shared by Female Ways. I love this little tree and all it has to offer!

I am partial to blue, so when I came across this beautiful tree I had to share it from Tiwule. Gorgeous.

Have you ever considered using fruit to decorate your tree? Young House Love did!

I'm going to leave you with one more, just because I thought it was so beautiful. I found it at Kitchen Decorating Ideas 4 U. Simply gorgeous...

Regardless of how you decide to decorate your Christmas tree this year, I recommend simply enjoying it. It doesn't matter if it looks picture perfect, all that matters is it is picture perfect to you. Did any of these trees give you some inspiration for decorating your tree? I hope so. =)

Lastly, please remember why we celebrate this time of year. Cherish all you have been blessed with. Have a fantastic weekend! (((Hugs)))

  2. I and my small team at http://hometipster.com really love this post. The blue one is my personal favorite but the last one is sublime. Must take a lot of thought and work to produce. Being I've got a sweet tooth the Sweet Treat wouldn't last until Christmas :)
