I have some friends asking for a post about our Christmas trees. So, here it goes. I wasn’t always the type to have a Christmas tree in every room. I wasn’t until I went to my husband’s best friend’s parent’s home back in Tampa. Say that five times fast. It’s a little difficult to get completely into the Christmas spirit in South Florida, especially when it’s 80 degrees out and the AC is still running. Well, their home was pretty inconspicuous on the outside with just a few lights and a wreath up, but the inside was a Christmas wonderland. Each room had it’s own theme and tree. I absolutely loved it and I wanted that tradition for our family.

So, last year I started a new to us tradition of having a Christmas tree in every room. We are at five right now. Crazy I know, but I absolutely love it.
Coming in our front door, you’ll see our red and white candy cane inspired tree. It has a little bit of sass and whimsy.
We have our main tree between our family and dining room. This year I decided to go with a silver and chartreuse color scheme to match the more neutral colors in family room since adding the leather sectional. It also pulls the greens from our new dining room art (which I need to blog about ASAP because you’ll love it).
When you head up the stairs, our little man’s nursery is the first room on the left. He’ll eventually get a bigger tree around his third birthday, but the little one works perfectly for now. I decided when he was born that I would do a more rustic/Canadian inspired tree for him. Need to let his hockey playing, toboggan riding, Moose in a Maple Tree reading roots come through. His first ornament was the felt moose and this year’s in the tiny toboggan. Obsessed!
V’s tree is colorful and girly, just like her room. We have the flocked tree I made last year in her room. She’s barely messed with the tree with the exception of removing all the glitter reindeer. She has an obsession with My Little Pony, so the ornaments get added to her imaginative play and turn into baby ponies. Not mad about it.
Our latest tree is this gorgeous flocked gem I picked up at a Korean underground market for the master bedroom. I’m absolutely smitten. I chose teal as the main color and this tree also holds the sentimental ornaments that I’ve collected since our dating days. I didn’t have a tree skirt for this tree, so I just used a curtain panel I had. The fabric is by Robert Kaufman and it’s called Khanjali Peacock. The little sheep and salt dough ornaments I made with my oldest are my favorite parts of the tree.
Congratulations! You’ve made it to the end! What does your Christmas tree look like? Leave a link if you have one or just describe it to me. Merry Christmas everyone!
