Decorating a yellow tree for Mother's Day.
Different people celebrate Mother’s Day different ways. A common tradition is a mother daughter afternoon tea. I took this tea party theme and ran with it for my latest Mother’s Day Tree. I say latest because let us not forget, the pink tree full of pictures that I decorated for Mother’s Day last year.

Decorating a tree for Easter.

Easter is so kitsch-a-liscious and that is why it is one of my very favorite holidays to decorate for. The bunnies and chicks are so colorful and happy. All those beady little eyes staring back at you, rejoicing to be feeling the April sun on their faces after a year in a dark attic. As with every holiday, my trusty white Treetopia tree comes in handy as a way of displaying my collection. This guy looks just as cute at Easter as he did at Christmas.

Ornament storage with Jen Perkins and Treetopia

Were you starting to get worried about me after last week’s post about Christmas Tree Storage? Wondering if I was lying in an attic underneath a mountain of unorganized holiday decor? Never fear, all is right in the world. The trees are in their bags and now the ornaments are in their storage boxes. Not to mention, my attic is looking pretty tidy. (more…)

Did you do an Instagram #bestnine for 2016? It probably comes as no surprise to you that all 9 of mine were pictures of my gorgeous Treetopia trees. I’ve got a couple. OK, I’ve got A LOT.
