Welcome fall with decorated trees
One of the best ways to welcome fall is with a beautiful combination of artificial Christmas trees. Why decorate just one tree for fall when you could decorate three? I happen to think that the Chocolate Truffle Potted Tree, Treetopia Basics Orange Tree and the Treetopia Basics Yellow Tree all look pretty groovy together. (more…)

Jen Perkins' Back to School Wreath

Back to school time is here! For some people it could not get here soon enough, and for others it’s always sad to see the kids go back. I was just excited for an excuse to decorate a Back to School themed wreath. No matter what grade your kids are in, this adorable wreath has all the bases covered.

This is my final Christmas in July post, and luckily I am signing off with one of my all time favorite Treetopia styles—Pretty in Pink. I have the wreath and the potted version. This baby pink tree has helped my family celebrate Christmas, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s and even National Ice Cream Day. Then, of course, there is my pride and joy—my Valentine’s Day wreath. Who knew pink was so versatile?

White Christmas trees are the best; they are blank slates just waiting for the perfect holiday. Even better than a plain white tree is a small tabletop tree like The Winter White Potted Tree. Fewer ornaments, less commitment, and perfect for keeping up year round. Check this baby out decorated for Mardi Gras.

Jen's decorated Oh Christmas Tree from Treetopia

Time for Round 2 of the Treetopia Christmas in July Special. It looks like July in this picture of my Oh Christmas Tree with the pool in the background, but I promise it was December. I may have a tree up year-round (right now my Ice Cream Tree is in the game room) but I only decorate those trees for Christmas in December!

Christmas in July with Jennifer Perkins and Treetopia

Christmas in July, you’ve heard the term—but what does it mean? Is Santa coming? Should you hang up your stockings? Not exactly. What it does mean is that July is the halfway mark to Christmas. In 6 months, hall decking will be in full swing. In the meantime, July is a great time to find awesome discounts on Christmas decor.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM!!!! Make that a Pretty in Pink ice cream tree and I’ll really be screaming at the top of my lungs. Just in time for National Ice Cream Day, I have a sprinkle-covered concoction of super cuteness to share with you.

donut ornaments

National Donut Day will be here before you know it, so you better start planning your tree now. Might I suggest crafting up your own DIY Donut Ornaments for the tree? Guess what these baked good beauties are made from: old compact discs! Come on donut lovers of the 90’s, you know you still have a stack somewhere.

Jennifer Perkins' Treetopia Yellow Pineapple Christmas Tree

The weather is getting warmer, summer is right around the corner, and today being Cinco de Mayo, margaritas and frozen tropical drinks are on the minds of many. I know they are on my mind. Christmas trees are probably not the first thing that comes to mind, but maybe they should be. Well, at least if that Christmas tree looks like a giant pineapple.

How to add flowers to your wreath for spring.
Bouquets on the table are so last year, so why not try some fresh flowers in a wreath? Easier (and cheaper) than you might think. Hang that wreath on a starburst mirror and you have the perfect statement piece.
