Christmas trees are such a fun part of the decor for the holiday. As we have since we’ve owned this house, we put up two Christmas trees again this year – one real and one fake.
The tree in our front room is our “fancier” tree and the tree in the sunroom is our “fun” playful tree. We have so many ornaments and already own the fake tree from our time in the condo, so we have a lot of fun with this set up!
Luke is almost 2 months old so he obviously has no idea what is going on. However, I really look forward to next year when he gets it better!
As we have been all month, we are sharing our trees alongside a bunch of other bloggers!
The Formal Tree
We always do a coastal Christmas tree theme for our more formal tree. This year I tried to mix it up every so slightly with a bit of a coastal Charleston Christmas tree theme.
The baby pink garland is a chunky yarn that we braided in long pieces.
The tree topper is a wooden birdhouse shaped like a lighthouse from Michaels. I painted it and drilled a hole in the bottom to stick it on the tree!
The Casual Tree
Our casual tree lives in the sunroom and is covered with all of our miscellaneous colorful ornaments. There are even some from Sean’s childhood!
I love love a themed tree (that’s what I grew up with!) but really enjoy having a place to display all of these memories.
We have ornaments from our wedding, Luke’s first ornament, and ornaments from many vacations.
Do you prefer a themed or sentimental tree?
