My BF and I have a date night planned this weekend to pick out this year's Christmas tree. Earlier this year, my gram gave us a stellar 9' fake tree, the giant one from Costco, which we will put up in our living room, however we both agreed we also wanted a real tree. I think I've mentioned before, my BF is Mr. Christmas. It's an understatement to say Christmas is his favorite holiday. He starts listening to Christmas music in August! I love Christmas too, and cannot part ways with the annual tradition of picking out a fresh tree. So this year we'll have our traditional tree full of the ornaments we've collected over the years, and a second tree, which I get to decorate however I please!
What better way to plan by gathering inspirational photos of some amazing trees out there? None, there is no better way. I must gather and I must share.
Here are some of my favorites:
I love the metallic wrapped presents, and the brassy gold ornaments on the tree. Very bling bling.
I've never had a flocked christmas tree before, I'm thinking of flocking a mini tree to see how it turns out. If it looks anything like this one above, I'm in!
I like how simple and modern this set-up is, it's nothing like my house but I would be ok with having a simple tree like this guy.

Peppermint stick, anyone? I love this tree! Traditionally red yet funky and crisp. Silver, white and red – I like.
WOW look at that tree topper. Apparently I can't get enough with the gold tones. Is the rug trimmed with gold, too? Sigh…
Ooooh, blues, silvers, and more blues. Now I'm torn.
I can't tell if this one here is flocked or not, maybe it's lightly dusted? Gold, grey/silver, and white – I like. I'm also a huge fan of the presents in buckets too, great way to keep the dogs from trampling the gifts. Oh, and I need that nail-head chair.
Lacking ornaments? you can deck out your tree in ribbons and bells, like this one above. Great way to re-use last year's wrapping supplies!
So yeah, these are just a few Christmas trees I find inspiring. Ta ta for now!
