Christmas Tree 2016

Let's have a look at the main Christmas tree!  This year it is an 8' Noble Fir and it is the crown jewel of my Christmas decor!

I don't have a specific theme for this tree as I do with the others.  They are just some of my favorite ornaments that I have collected through the years.
A Santa with his reindeer garland dances through the tree...
It is filled with handmade ornaments from Germany as well as vintage style ornaments.  There are also ornaments collected from our various travels.  An ornament is a great little trinket to remind yourself of trips that you took!
I also put some other strands of lights into the tree, below you can see a strand of ornaments filled with string lights...
There tree sits next to Ms. Mora and makes the clock look quite pretty at night! 
A closer look at both...
My favorite ornament is the one below... it was our wedding topper that my Mom put inside of an ornament!  A clever idea and one you could do too if your topper is small enough! 
The tree is so pretty, especially at night time.  
Every year the main tree looks a bit different. This year I did not put icicle ornaments on as I do with previous years, as I was afraid of how my cat would react to the tree.
So far she is most interested in pulling the ribbons and trying to open the presents.
Oh, and drinking tree water.

  1. Exquisite! I love that your tree is filled with meaningful ornaments. To me, those are the best kinds of trees! The wedding cake topper made into an ornament is priceless. What a wonderful idea. I will remember that idea.
    Merry Christmas! Thanks for sharing all the splendor that is about your house this holiday season.
