My Guest Room is always simply dressed for Christmas.
Yes, you read that right . . . simply . . . I can do simply at times!
However, this year that is not the case as I added a grand tree in the Guest Room.
The tree took on a 12 Days of Christmas theme with a Southern Traditional look.
So let’s take a look at My Christmas Guest Room and a Beautiful Tree.
Today, I am joining some wonderful fellow bloggers of the 12 Days of Christmas Tour
partnering with the fabulous people of Tree Classics.
I am featuring the 10th Day of Holiday Decor,
A.K.A. the Day of “Ten Lords A Leaping.”
I have a large collection of Dept. 56 Dickens Village.
Part of this collection are figurines depicting the 12 Days of Christmas.
So I dusted them off from being in the attic for years and added them to the tree.
The ever so cute tags depicting each day were gifted to me by my friend and blogger
Christy, of 11 Magnolia Lane. She is a sweetheart!
Now how about that tree! I am truly in love with this tree,
not only for its beauty, but for its ability to change the total look of the tree
just by pressing a button! A button that will allow you to change the color of the
lights from multi-colored lights to clear lights, OR you can have both!
Yes both, as they change from pretty colors to sparkling white.
I have shown you the multi-colored lights on the tree . . .
so let’s see the tree with the clear lights
and the beautiful Tree Classics Bethlehem Star Topper.
I truly cannot decide which lights I prefer as they are both so pretty to gaze upon.
My hubby and son have always loved the multi-colored lights on a tree.
Our Christmas trees for the first several years of our marriage were
strung with stands of multi-colored lights with larger bulbs that you inserted
into the socket. When a light went out, you knew exactly which one it was.
A luxurious quilted red velvet skirt from Tree Classics
lies beautifully beneath the tree.
I filled the tree with pretty ornaments (see source list below), fruit, and stems of cotton.
Sprinkled throughout the tree are loops of black and white checked ribbon
to coordinate with the black and white checked fabric in the room.
When the tree arrived and my hubby saw that it was a 9 footer vs. the 7 1/2 foot trees
that I have from Tree Classics . . . he commented that knowing Tree Classics
this should be easy to assemble….No cords to plug in with each section of the tree.
Each section automatically lights up when you place it into the trunk of this tree!
So now I will switch to the multi-colored lights!
So if you are a house divided, you can have the best of both worlds!
I have to say that I have been partial to the clear lights; however,
I do love the way the multi-colored lights cast such a pretty glow in this room of blues.
When seeing the pretty multi-colored lights on the tree,
it brings back memories of one Christmas as a teenager.
Oh I think I am about to date myself!
It was the year that my dad brought home the shiny silver metallic Christmas Tree.
He was so proud of it! We were all shocked as he being an Iowa Farm Boy,
loved having real Christmas trees and always told us stories of how they would
cut down their own Christmas trees.
So we all accepted this rather “Jetson” looking tree.
Then, my dad comes in with this other box.
It was the latest and greatest . . . The color wheel! It spun round and round
giving off the different colored lights to shine upon the tree.
“No stringing up the lights anymore!”, he said. My mom, being my mom simply smiled!
During the Holidays, we all seem to think back on the wonderful memories we had
with our family . . . some happy . . . some sad.
However, I so love it when seeing something, like the twinkling colored lights of a tree
sparks a memory of a past Christmas. I can clearly remember the joy in my dad’s
face when he brought our “Jetson” tree home with the amazing color wheel!
I want to thank Tree Classics today for bringing back sweet memories of a Christmas past.
And . . . for making my hubby a happy camper . . .
to have a tree with the option of having multi-colored lights!
I know where that tree will land next year!
I wish you all a Very Merry Day!!!
