Christmas Tree Decorating Ideas

It's time to start thinking about Christmas decorating!! It won't be long before we will be getting those boxes out of the attic. Here are some tree decorating ideas to get the wheels spinning in your head. I took these pictures when I was in Dallas a while back.
 
I loved the HO HO HO at the top of this tree. So cute!
Beautiful and tradtional... 
 
 Love the snowman tree topper!

 So cute...love the Santa and candycane at the top.
 Look at those adorable reindeer...
 Pretty in peppermint...
 So colorul and whimsical!
 Very elegant in silver and white...
 Now if you want something really different here you go...lol. Those fish are so funny!
 Some of you might remember this tree from last year. Well, tomorrow is the big day! Most of you know that I have a handful of houses I decorate for Christmas and this one is scheduled for tomorrow. I will start decorating this tree around 10:00 in the morning. If you follow me on facebook you will see step by step updates from the beginning to the end. This tree takes me about 4 hours!
 
I hope you got some ideas for trees!
 
Happy decorating!!

Hi Krsiten,
Wow, those are some amazing trees. My two favorite trees are the Ho Ho Ho tree and the whimsical one with all the neat ribbon. And, oh my goodness, I love the tree you did for your friend. I can't wait to see what you do this year. Happy Tree Decorating! XO ~Liz

Hi Kirsten! Thank you so much for this post! I went to a shop in the city last week that usually has beautiful trees but I was so disappointed in them. I love inserting sprays and whatever but they had so so much that they didn't even look like trees anymore. I plan on starting my own decorating this week and will be following along with you tomorrow on Facebook!
