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.

A healthy combination of artificial and natural lighting can open up any space. During daytime, remove obstructions from your windows and entryways to maximize sunlight. Don’t rely on a single source of artificial light for nighttime illumination and opt to spread out multiple light sources around the room. Photography by Tessa Neustad.

Since President Coolidge started the tradition in 1923, the National Christmas tree lighting ceremony has embodied the country’s spirit. The ceremony is headed by the First Family and marks the beginning of the holiday season and the Pageant of Peace. Today is President’s Day, and we thought it would be the perfect time to look back at the National Christmas Trees from the last 17 years.
