Did you happen to notice what was in the corner of my room in my last post. Yes it was a Christmas tree! I know it's a bit early for some of you, but I promise there is not a lick of Christmas decorations downstairs yet :) It's a bit of tradition for me to put up the bedroom tree in the beginning of November. It really puts me in the Christmas spirit and makes me excited. There is nothing like laying in bed at night and staring at a Christmas tree.
I did this years theme a little differently. Normally I have colored lights with lots of glittery ornaments in the same colors as the lights. This year I brightened it up. A lot of the ornaments you see are handmade (I think those are the best kind). I included lots of white and did clear lights. It has to be my favorite tree ever.I love it so much I decided to do the big tree downstairs in the same style.Yay!
Its always been tradition to put up the tree and decorations the day after Thanksgiving. It is honestly my favorite day of the year, I look forward to it all year. I love it even more than Christmas Day :)
When do you put up your tree and decorations?
We normally put ours up when school finishes..after the first week in December. That's when it normally starts to feel really Christmassy here. This year the bug seems to have struck me a bit earlier. You must have been really busy over the past few months making and collecting all of those great ornaments. The colours are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Yes, I had noticed that, wow... already a christmas tree, but I love it. In my house I have some branches in a vase and I have put all my crochet stars and snowflakes in it... also cute! byebyeReplyDelete
Your tree is absoluetly gorgeous Becky!!! Love all those handmade decorations and those colours are right up my alley! Very inspiring, we usually put up our tree on the first day of december, and i usually let my kids decorate it, so it always turns out quite haphazard. Have a great day, julie :)ReplyDelete
Becky, your tree is great, so colorful and fun. I am not putting up a thing until the Sunday after Thanksgiving then I will be like a wild woman decorating like crazy.ReplyDelete
Have a great weekend,
Your tree looks great! No wonder you are in the spirit. We always do our house on the weekend after Thanksgiving - it takes all weekend to get everything up and arranged. I love it!ReplyDelete
love it! love all the bright colors. and all the handmade goodies!ReplyDelete
Today.....I hope. Tired of orange. I love your tree. These are the colors I want to do in my bedroom. You must love it as well.ReplyDelete
We cut our tree down Thanksgiving weekend and get that up as well as the outside lights....then the rest follows. Love your tree, so bright and colorful! I am a new follower!ReplyDelete
Love it, love it, love it! We are holding out for 1st December, but I must admit I'm itching to decorate this year. I went to the Ideal Home Christmas Show this week and now I'm ticking off the days....XXReplyDelete
wonderfull! i like it so much!ReplyDelete
I LOVE your tree!!ReplyDelete
We usually put ours up the weekend nearest the 1st December. I try earlier but Hubby isn't too keen! Your tree is absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to start on mine. xxReplyDelete
We also decorate the day after Thanksgiving, starting with lights on the outside of the house. Your tree is lovely.ReplyDelete
Oh! Your tree is gorgeous! I love all the crocheted ornaments - you have been very busy! I've begun adding Christmas around the house - no trees yet - but I have started doing some tabletop vignettes. I've made a few Christmas-y things and those are in place already, too.ReplyDelete
What a stunning tree! Beautiful decorations! Laura (www.strawberrymousecrafts.wordpress.com)ReplyDelete
Your tree is so pretty - the handmade stockings are great!ReplyDelete
what an original tree full of crochet. love it. We put up the tree after the 6th of December (after Sinterklaas has been, Santa Claus who brings gifts to the children, 'your' SantaClaus is called father christmas over here).ReplyDelete
A truly gorgeous tree! Every year my hubby & I have a "discussion" as to when to put the Christmas decs up... I say 1 Dec and he says 16 Dec (as if!!)- needless to say they go up on the 1st ;-)ReplyDelete
Your pictures made me gasp with delight! So beautiful!! I especially love the granny square circle ornament. Where did you get the pattern? We put our tree up after Thanksgiving. Best time of the year!ReplyDelete
Your tree is very pretty. I don't put mine up till after the 20th December mainly because we are chock a block with birthdays between now and then!ReplyDelete
Have I told you how much I love your bedroom, with the wonderful crochet blanket and gorgeous Christmas tree!?ReplyDelete
My daughter decoreated the house last week, but we haven't put up a tree in 3 years, because of one of our dogs. Maybe this year will be the year we can do it again.
Your tree is stunning! I love the idea of you having a tree in your bedroom. [Might have to steal that idea as I love it so much!!!] Our tree goes up on December 1st ... can't wait : -)ReplyDelete
