Show Off your Christmas Tree Contest

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree! I’ve just finished decorating 3. If you celebrate Christmas, more than likely you decorate an evergreen tree (real or artificial) with ornaments and lights. It’s a Christmas tradition in our home. Throughout the day, the Christmas tree stops me in my tracks. It’s a moment when I’m reminded to Rejoice! I’m celebrating the birth of my savior. When the days are short and evening arrives early, there’s just something happy about twinkly lights on a Christmas tree that lifts my spirits and warms my heart this time of year.  Christmas Tree Party and Contest I’m a “do what you love” decorator. Classic, modern, French country, rustic, vintage, farmhouse. See what I mean? Our old farmhouse doesn’t have an open floor plan, so rooms aren’t all the same theme and color. I love so many different styles and our home reflects my indecision…I mean: appreciation for a variety of decorating styles. Here is a look at the trees in the DIY Show Off home:

The family room Christmas tree is a white. I love how it glows and the fun bright colors are perfect for the eclectic vibe in this room.  Trimming the Christmas tree is such a fun part of the holidays!

{tips for decorating your Christmas tree – can you tell lights are strung vertically? I create a faux root ball to give our 7.5′ tree another foot of height.}

A peek from traditional into bright and eclectic through the French doors…

Our dining room tree is decorated with thrift store treasures, burlap ribbon browns, golds and a grapevine wreath star. Base is an old trunk and an old crate which give the tree some height {and charm}. vintage natural Christmas
