Christmas in Small Spaces Blog Hop: Tween Bedroom with Jennifer PerkinsPosted by in Treetopia Christmas Decorating Ideas
Pencil trees and table top trees are perfect for small spaces like a child’s room. When my tween asked for her own tree, I was more than happy to help. She picked the sweets theme and it just happened that I decorated an ice cream themed tree a time or two, so I had a bit of experience.
I started with a tall, slim white Treetopia tree. This tree is great, because my daughter’s room is not all that big. This tree gives her the look of a full-sized Christmas tree without taking up her entire room. I have decorated this versatile tree for Christmas, Easter, 4th of July and even as part of a candy corn tree forest for Halloween. Nothing like a lush white tree to fill with sweet treats, like cupcakes and ice cream. Who needs visions of sugarplums when you have these cuties.
When my daughter opted for a sweet treats themed tree, I was prepared. I’ve decorated a tree for National Ice Cream Day not once, but twice! Want your own DIY sweet treats ornaments? Check out these pompom ice cream cones, ice cream cake boxes, ice cream sundae cups and air dry clay ice cream cone ornaments.
My daughter’s room already had a lot of pink going on, so this theme fit right in. When decorating a bedroom for a holiday, don’t be afraid to add in extra’s like holiday themed picture frames and even change out the bedding to something seasonal. Did I mention that a Christmas tree makes an awesome night light?
Let your kids be the guide when choosing a tree and theme for their room. You know what they like and what they would enjoy in their rooms. Tweens like sweets and my son has toys in his tree. I’m kinda jealous and thinking I may need to put a Christmas tree in my own bedroom.
Sure you could put a mini tree or even a small tabletop tree in your kid’s room, but really impress them (and let them impress their friends) with a fun slim full height pencil tree in their bedroom. My daughter says she wants to keep this tree up year round and it is so cute I just might let her!by
