The holidays come but once a year but with a few adjustments, your Christmas tree doesn’t have to be in storage for 11 months. From Valentine’s Day to Halloween, there are many opportunities to wow your guests with your decorating prowess. Here are 8 year-round Christmas tree decorating ideas from Treetopia. (more…)
Several years ago, I threw a Little Lumberjacks and Jills Party for my children. It was so fun! We served silver dollar pancakes instead of cupcakes, there were Lincoln Logs to play with and of course, buffalo plaid as far as the eye could see. If only I had thought to get out my Christmas tree for a photo op.
Whether you’re getting ready to decorate or prepping to stow it away, cleaning your Christmas tree is a must. It may require a bit of work but proper cleaning can help your tree stay vibrant for longer. There are dozens of cleaning tips and guides available on the web, but we’re going to keep it simple and manageable with this comprehensive guide on how to clean an artificial Christmas tree from Treetopia.

TT: What are the little things that can make or break your design?
Twinkie: Attention to detail can really bring your project to life. I’m not sure that you are necessarily breaking your design by leaving out the small things, but I love that feeling when you’re looking at someone’s work or space and you discover something new every time you look.
