Decorating a green Christmas tree with a vintage Santa collection.

Believe it or not, I have a traditional tree in my house—a whole room even with red, white and green. After last week’s tour of my Colorful Christmas Home, you were starting to worry weren’t you? My Oh Christmas Tree from Treetopia is the showstopper. Sure, it is 75 degrees outside but it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas in my game room. The nice thing about a green tree (or any tree) is that it is a blank slate. Besides ornaments, I like for my trees to have a theme. Last year I decorated the tree with my vintage Fisher Price toy collection. This year it is all Santa, all the time.

How to decorate an orange Christmas tree.

I’m a firm believer that when it comes to Christmas, more is always better—more trees, more color, more kitsch. I guess after a year of being the Treetopia brand ambassador, you already gathered all that. This holiday season, it is safe to say I have a tree in almost every color and in just about every room in my house, including orange.

Spooky Wreaths for the Spookiest Day
 


“Wanting to create a spooky and sophisticated Halloween Bar Cart this year, I decided to decorate my black wreath as if it were a funeral wreath. I adorned the front with a banner and added in some blood red peonies to enhance the “creepy factor”. Adding the phrase “Drink Up Witches” adds a little humor to the vignette and invites my guests to come over and pick their poison.”

Day of the Dead tree decorating.

Today on the Treetopia Halloween Mystery Bloghop and Giveaway we are headed to El Paso, TX for a sneak peak into the traditions of Vanessa Brady of Tried and True. Vanessa gave her Treetopia Stiletto Black Christmas Tree an amazing Day of the Dead makeover. Dia de los Muertos is more than colorful skull decorations and face paint, it is a beautiful tradition honoring loved ones who have passed on. Vanessa made the gorgeous frames for her photos, whipped out some amazingly cute tassel ornaments, and even handmade tissue paper flowers for the tree. She topped it off with pompom trim, because everything is better with pompoms.

How to decorate a candy corn tree.

I first fell in love with Treetopia because of their Candy Corn Tree. Sure, I’m their brand ambassador and you would think I have to say nice stuff about them, but really I adore this tree—maybe even too much. Last year, I used the tree in my Halloween Party Photo Booth, and the tree makes an appearance on the DIY Network post 9 Ways to Decorate a Halloween Tree. Also, if you are looking for Halloween Games and Activities for a Kid’s Halloween Party, the tree makes a great centerpiece for a round of musical chairs. So many options. Who knew a Candy Corn Tree was so versatile?
