Christmas Trees...

My favourite part of Christmas  is putting up and decorating the tree! I love unwrapping all the ornaments and even finding some you had forgotten you bought! I don't like to clutter the rooms with too much as sometimes it can feel a bit claustrophobic! I am a firm believer that less is more!  We always have two large trees, one in the living room and another in the dining area. These are a few of my favourite photos which have given me some lovely inspiration...

   As my sunroom is a little small for a big tree, I am going to try and create something similar to the ones in the last photo above. I already have a little twig tree so I must go on the hunt for a nice container. I can't wait to get started, and I am depending on" himself " to go up to the attic later and pass down the boxes of decorations! :) I think he will be sorry he took today off  work somehow!!

  13. i love christmas trees but I don't like to make them. I wish there were trees that you can take of the box and already decorated, do you think it exist? I don't think so ;-) x

  16. I love that you have several trees that you decorate. I think that is awesome. I believe less is more also. I am such a minimalist Anne! Everything has a place, but not obsessively. HAHA I'm only doing a table top this year, because I'll be out of town. Love your inspirations. Wishing you a wonderful evening! :D

  18. Opening the ornaments is my favorite part as well, because I go to garage sales to find vintage ornaments and I forget sometimes about what I bought. So for me, taking out the decorations is like Christmas Day. I love all the photos, this is my favorite time of the year!!

  21. Hi Anne great ideas. I have saved a couple of the pics you've posted. I love a beautiful Christmas tree too. I caught my son yesterday sitting on the sofa just staring at the tree with a smile on his face just enjoying it. Thanks for your lovely comments and I look forward to following you too and those yummy recipes.
