I am crazy about Christmas decorating. However, I am not crazy about taking boxes and boxes of decorations out of storage and putting them away after the holidays. So, a few years ago, I decided to minimize my work but still have the spirit of Christmas all over the house.
The answer? Seven Christmas trees! Yes, you heard your brain right. Seven. Why not? I have all six trees pre-decorated every year but one. The seventh is the real pine tree. So, of course,that will have to be decorated as soon as the tree is cut down. Well, that used to be the case. This year, 2012, we decided that our seventh tree will be a faux tree as well.
I’ve always wanted to have a white Christmas tree. Unfortunately, I’ve had a difficult time finding a narrow tree in white, so I decided the next best thing. I chose all the ornaments and trimmings to be in white and it worked!
Finally, the last of the seven trees, the most important of all of them. This tree is in the family room where we gather mostly during the holiday season. Where all of the traditions happen. As we sit in front of her, memories of days gone by filter the air.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR TO ALL!
Sending you all my best,
