Trim The Tree Thursday Week #4

It's time for Trim The Tree Thursday again, hosted by Brett, Southern Hostess. Stop by Brett's blog to see a list of many blogs with wonderful and creative Christmas decoration postings!


This tree is in my living room. I love Christmas trees and I try to have one in every room. Of course they all vary in size. The living room tree is a 6' green tree with white lights. I use all clear glass, white, and silver on it.

I love the silver star on top. This year I bought the silver beaded wire bow in a fabulous gift shop downtown. I just love it!






This hall table is in my front entry. It's dark cherry and I use a silk beaded, rose and green scarf on top. This year I scattered an assortment of beaded Christmas trees over the table top, then placed two cake pedestals in the center, topping each with a cloche. A crystal beaded garland works it's way around the trees and pedestals.


The shorter cloche and pedestal holds pearl glass Christmas balls.



The taller cloche encases a little crystal bowl which is hand painted with holly. It's filled with white and silver glittered starburst ornaments and topped with a white feathered bird. Another bird sits outside the bowl on the cake pedestal. I just love those sweet little birds!



The lamp shade is crowned with a little pine wreath. A mirrored ornament hangs, with the greeting "All Hearts Come Home For Christmas". I know mine does!


Merry Christmas everyone...enjoy these last couple of weeks preparing for Christmas!

I love your tree! You are so right about the star. It's stunning. It's so hard to find the perfect top for a tree. Yours fits the bill!
Your home is beautiful. Thanks for the tour!
Merry Christmas!

I love your tree topper. I'm in awe that you get so many trees up. I'm still struggling to find the perfect topper for our main tree. You have filled your home with so much beauty.

Hi Kathy! I love the beautiful displays you are showing today. The tree is fabulous with all the silver! The cake plates you have really caught my eye. I love the square one and the cloche really adds enchantment there :0)

I love those beaded christmas trees-they are just wonderful! Where did you get those? Surely you didn't make them! I would love several of these for my hallway on the top of my secretary-they are just perfect!

Merry Christmas!

Hi Kathy,
I just love your living room tree with all the clear and white and the cloches are darling. I've done something similar on my buffet in the dining room. Don't you just love the way the white lights twinkle off the cloches? My husband thinks mine looks like a strange science experiment.

Kathy, Everything is exquisite. I am amazed at your talent. How wonderful to have a tree in each room. I really love the glitter and sparkle. The beaded trees are lovely as is the silver star. I have to buy a cloche. I am seeing them often and really like them. Thanks for sharing.
Hugs,
