Tree Styling

Like many of you, I like to decorate my holiday trees with their own unique personality. This year I wanted something different for my big tree in the living room, so in addition to the silver and white ornaments and white berry garland I used some of the fabulous tags I have collected from various talented artists. I love how it turned out and hope you do as well. Here is a tour of trees in my home...


The "tag" tree. A 7' slim pre~lit tree in an old concrete urn. The tags are all from etsy sellers.





The dining room tree is a table~top tree in an old crusty white bucket. This tree gets a mix of new and old silver ornaments and creamy cotton icicles.



This is a new addition to my home this year and I call it the "bling" tree. It has seam binding with old buttons, an old watch and a collection of old pins. It sits in a crusty old light fixture.




I love this old bottle brush tree.


I have a pair of these silver trees on the mantle in black iron urns.


This tree is in the kitchen on top of the refrigerator. It looks good just bare I think.


I adore this "Charlie Brown" tree.


I couldn't resist a night shot of this twig tree on the porch, shot through the lace curtain.

I am liking the bling tree! And what is going on with the wall behind the tree on your fridge? Is that a wall treatment or what? Cool stuff, Ms. Shelley. Your home is gorgeous! ~Mindy

Shell, love the tag tree. There's a similar one in Country Living this month. I always enjoy seeing what you'll do next.

Wonderful ideas! I love the tag tree...in fact, I love it so much, I think everyone should send you a card to add to it. Maybe with a special sentiment written on it. All I have is business cards, but I can write Merry Christmas on it!

Hey T~~well just when I thought I had an original idea about the "tag" tree... Oh well great minds think alike I guess (haha). I hadn't noticed that tree in CL to be honest.

Hey Mindy~~thanks for the compliment. Those are just the upper cabinets over the fridge that are so hard to use.

Hugs,

Shelley

Shelley, I love all of your Christmas trees, every one, but my favourite has got to be your bling tree - just perfect, especially with that stand!

Anne~fiona and twig said...

That is the absolute BEST idea, and one I never would've thought of! Of course, you know how this works, right? I'm stealing your brill idea for myself! ;-)
Hugs,

I love the tree post! I'm always looking for 'perfect' slim trees, so that first one might be my favorite. Or was it the little bottle brush tree, or the "charlie Brown" tree? Luv em all!

Faded Charm said...

I'm loving all your trees. You have some great ideas for bases. I always try to think of new ideas each year. I'm a little late on my decorating this year, but will hopefully have some time to work on it now.

Hope everything is going well with you. Take care.
