Georgeous Christmas Tree Inspiration

Are you looking for inspiration for your Christmas Tree this year? 70% of American households will put their Christmas tree up after Thanksgiving dinner - and while I won't be putting one up in my own house, I am looking for inspiration for my many Christmas Tree's at the Christmas show house this year. I've already decorated one and taken it all apart, something was just all wrong. I don't know what it was - it just was.

So, I came home tonight and started searching - as I'm sure many of you have been - and I thought, why not throw a post together with Inspiring Christmas Trees that may or may not strike your fancy this year and have you decorating outside the box.

So, gorgeous, right? I mean who doesn't love a packed Christmas tree, filled with ribbons and ornaments, and branches, and fun big pieces like snow shoes and sleds. But when you do these home tour things, you have to change it up and do something different each time ... people begin to look for what's next. 

Thus, I've just ... like two seconds ago just ... been inspired by some pretty unlikely, and not so Christmas'y displays: 


That's right folks! I had already planned on filling some shelves with books - and bought a ton at a local 1/2 off sale at the thrift store. The bindings were removed, so just the pages remained ... and I had a million, literally! So, let's see how it turns out! It's too close to the day of to turn back now!

  2. Wouldn't it be amazing to have the $$$ and the room to have 5 or 6 trees to decorate!!???? That would be heaven to me. I just did ours yesterday, I am trying to get a head start because I am on our neighborhood tour of houses. And since we are in this new house just over a year I want to make it all real pretty and special. Wishing you a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!!!!
