It’s time to select our annual Christmas Tree – yay!! Our family tradition for many years included a trip to a nearby tree farm, selecting a “Charlie Brown” tree, Dad sawing the trunk, kids helping haul the tree to our car, tying it on the top and hot cocoa. Great memories!
This year we will visit a local charity sale, and the good news is the selection of trees and the proceeds benefit a local service organization. My favorite tree for decorating is a Frasier Fir for its soft needles and sturdy branches. I select Leland Cypress trees for my urns outside and buy fresh cut wreaths and garland from my kids’ school fundraiser. The fresh cut greens really feel like Christmas – I enhance the fragrance with White Barn Candles in Fresh Balsam and room spray!! Buy Candles Here
The holidays are busy so my decorating strategy is quick and simple focusing on time with family. My children decorate the tree with collected ornaments – handmade with popsicle sticks, painted hands and feet, gifts and treasures. Tree trimming is a tradition for a week night in our family complete with Christmas Carols, and Hot Cocoa with lots of marshmallows. These memories make your house a home. We will talk Cocoa recipes and more in the next post…be sure to subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss it!
May your Christmas Decorating be Merry and Bright! MHD
