Christmas Tree Decorating Themes

Tis the season, we bought our tree today! It's a big beauty that is teasing me while I am waiting for the branches to drop so I can decorate it. Oh the fun of having a real tree! Ybor City did the lighting of their tree this weekend which I was able to go grab a photo with during our 6 mile run today. This tree makes me look like an elf!

In the meantime, I wanted to share some fun decorated Christmas trees that I witnessed at Robert's Christmas Wonderland in Clearwater. If you are in the Bay area, you have to visit this place. They have something for everyone.

My favorite of the trees: Duh, the wine Christmas tree:
Are you more of an Ice Cream person? They have an Ice Cream Christmas tree:
Or you prefer it shaken, not stirred? James Bond 007 Christmas tree:
Oh you have a Starbucks habit? They have a tree for that, the Coffee Christmas Tree:
Or maybe you know a cowboy. Yes, they have a Cowboy Christmas Tree:
One tree that caught my eye was the Gator Tree:
Sorry Robert's, I may have to come decorate this tree next year for you as my Gator Christmas Tree is a bit better. So sad all that orange and blue is sitting in my garage at the Daytona house. Why did I have to fall in love with a Seminole graduate...............
What do you do for your Christmas tree decorating? Are you a traditionalist? Or do you have a theme? Growing up, we always had two trees. A real one with colored lights which had family ornaments which my brother and I would assist in decorating along with a fake one with white lights and mother of pearl ornaments which always had to be perfect. The traditional tree sat in the main window while the fake theme tree was the one we put presents under.

  1. I guess we don't really have a theme. We use our same ornaments year after year. Although, except for the plain, standard ornaments, many of the others have memories attached to them and they are fun to take out and reflect when decorating the tree...

    1. That's the "traditional" tree we had growing up. My Mom still has all the handmade ornaments we created in pre-school.
