30 days of Christmas Tree Ideas

Decorating for the holidays is a tradition in our home.  My favorite part is opening the box of ornaments I've collected over the years. Every ornament has sentimental value to us, otherwise it doesn't get hung on our tree.  My favorites are the pictures of family members I make every year through Kodak Gallery and the original "crafty" school projects I usually have to mend.   Hanging the vacation ornaments of places we've been always get us reminiscing about the good (and bad) times we've experienced.  The collection of angels and crosses gets bigger every year as does the addition of a bible verse or quote I like to focus on.  The tree is complete when the burgundy and gold-trimmed hydrangeas are placed throughout and edible See's Candy Climber Canes get hung on the branches.  

Our tree is a reflection of our family and a story is told with every step around and glance down. Although I would never change my style it doesn't stop me from enjoying the various themes of Christmas Trees available.  So for the next 30 days, we will be having a Christmas Tree decorating contest.  All you have to do is upload a picture of your tree to the NEW! 30daysof page on Facebook and you can win a $100 gift certificate to the TaiPan Trading Company
