Christmas Tree Inspiration

I am so excited about Christmas I can hardly stand it!  Last year we just had a mini [fake] pine tree, daintily decorated and placed on a side table … our place was tiny and we couldn’t accommodate a full sized tree.

This year she is running all over the place and into everything, so I am chomping at the bit to get our tree and finish putting up all of our holiday decorations.  Despite the fact that I am trying to be more eco-conscious this year, we are going to pick out our [real] evergreen today.  I want the house to be filled with the scent of pine and a big full tree and memories of Christmas’ of my youth.  My dad was a big pine tree fanatic – he planted them all over our property and I’m all for planting trees too – at sites like goevergreen.org you can ‘plant’ a pine for $35.00 – good stuff!

Now we have tons more space and I am going to take advantage of it!  I’m still deciding how I want to trim our tree and spent some time looking at other people’s decorations on Flikr for some inspiration.  Here’s what I found …

via boopsie.daisy – so bright and colorful!  and love the sweet stuffs on that sofa, turning formal into fun!


via craftybeaver – the tinsel tree looks great w/ those walls – so retro!


via floodinpdx – great alternative tree … such a natural look … and i’ve gotta have those lights!


via ATLITW – i would keep this up all year round … genius!


via dottie angel – very crafty, very inventive, very awesome


via Super*Junk – so adorable for a kids’ room … and i just love that rug.


via Simple Tess – so simple and some would say bare, but i really like it.  sometimes less is more.
