Have a Royally Good Christmas

Last year for the first time I decorated a Christmas tree long before most think of doing so. I did it for Hiawatha Homes' annual Festival of Trees. Three of my friends and I made a tree filled with Candyland dreams .

This year I'll be decorating two trees. One with two of my friends and another with my husband and kids.

I actually really enjoy decorating the themed Christmas trees because our home Christmas tree is filled with a modge podge of decorations ranging from the first ornament I received from my grandmother as a baby to the latest ornament I bought for my kids on clearance at Target. These trees I decorate give me the chance to decorate a tree that is coordinated and unsentimental.

The kids go to see the trees and are immediately enraptured by the themes. Last year, M loved the Barbie tree for its pure pinkness. K loved the woodcarver's tree that had a barn at the base.
So this year the theme for the tree with my friends was "Have a Royally Good Christmas."

Here are the pics:







If you're in the area, please visit. It doesn't cost much to see the trees and the kids are usually quite impressed with the trees.
And we hope you have a Royally Good Christmas.
One tree done. One to go for the festival. I'll post those when it is done.

Every year I go into Hobby Lobby and want to do a themed tree. But then I'd have to store it and all the extra ornaments in the attic with the rest of the Christmas stuff.

That's a beautiful tree!

So pretty & what a good idea! Our home tree is sentimental, too. I used to long for a coordinated one, but decided it just wouldn't be the same and now I wouldn't trade for anything. This is a great way to play Martha S. but still be Mom at home. :)

It looks so good! I love the way the tons of lights show through the ornaments. Makes it look all glowy and dreamlike.

Cool, you've helped me get in the mood for Christmas. This weekend we're breaking out the decorations and the tree. Or at least cleaning to get ready for it.
