Wow – I can’t believe this month has gone by so quickly. It seems as though November just began and here it is already near the end of the month and Thanksgiving tomorrow.
I have been traveling for work a lot this month and haven’t gotten that early start on my Christmas decorating that I had hoped I would.
I need a little inspiration so let’s all get inspired with a festival of trees. You might remember from previous posts that I had a floral and gift shop for 32 years. One of my favorite things about owning the business was the fun I had attending all of the gift shows. I was always inspired whenever I attended.
No doubt about it, my all-time favorite shows were the ones that featured all of the Christmas and holiday décor.
Today let’s take a walk through some of those beautiful trees. Maybe we will all get inspired to haul out those decorations over this upcoming weekend.
Festival of Trees
We’ll begin with this beautiful silver and white tree accented with the bright blue ribbons. I love the silver packages under the tree.
This beautiful copper tree looks stunning with the variety of ribbon accents flowing down through the tree. The Santa standing beside the tree adds a special touch.
The vibrant fruit tree looks so festive. The orange slice ornaments remind me of the spicy scent of the oranges we used to find tucked into our stocking on Christmas morning. That’s what makes the holidays so special – all of the wonderful memories. And don’t those bright red poinsettias tucked in the tree make it come alive??
I love this look of a traditional tree. I have a collection of glass ornaments and one of the trees in my home always features this lovely look.
This whimsical peppermint tree is just so cute. Can you see all of the little gingerbread men peeking out of the branches? The red and white polka dot ribbon sets off the contrasting peppermint ornaments.
And for a totally different look, this primitive tree is just so appealing. Don’t the red berry branches make a great tree topper? The berries accenting the branches of the tree carry the look through the whole tree.
This red and gold tree is stunning. The white snowflakes accenting the tree give it an interesting appeal.
Another version of a traditional tree was created using red, green and gold. The beading hanging from the ceiling made this a beautiful display.
I love this white tree using all red and white ornaments. The snowmen and brilliant red ornaments give it such a fun and fanciful look. The face on each snowman is so cute and you just have to smile when you see them.
This woodland tree creates a wonderful winter wonderland. Accented with red cardinals, snow branches and birdhouses, it brings the beauty of a winter day right inside. The base of the tree is even nestled into a tree stump for an additional woodland look.
What a lovely vignette. The contrasting red and lime green made a statement throughout the whole setting. The table arrangement was stunning.
I hope you enjoyed this visit to a festival of trees. I am now inspired to drag out the decorations and begin the process of bringing Christmas into the house.
But first ….. let’s get to that turkey and sweet potato pie! Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving day with family and friends.
