This year when the girls and I went to pick out our Christmas tree they fell in love with the tiny "baby" trees. At ten dollars each we picked out two. Combined with two five foot fake trees I already had, we each had a tree to decorate however we wanted. It was so much fun.
I placed my tree on the little used dinning room table. I've really enjoyed having it up out of the way not taking up floor space. The kids loved it too. They eat breakfast each morning in the glow of tinkling lights.
Underneath the tree I placed a red and white striped table runner and a few glitter houses Zoe and I made together this year.
It's the perfect place for the houses, they glitter and sparkle so pretty at night.
I've scattered a few smaller trees around the house also. I'm loving this simple one in the living room with white stars.
The girls placed their trees in the family room. This one is Emily's.
This one is Zoe's.
And this one is Jasmine's.
We may have started a new tradition with the baby trees. We all had so much more fun decorating them this year than in the past. Plus baby trees are much easier to drag in and set up. I can see us going it again next year.
