About Jennifer Perkins

Jennifer Perkins is an Austin based mom, DIY project designer, blogger, social marketing strategist and Treetopia brand ambassador.

Don’t let the 4th of July slip by without a single decoration. If you work quickly you could have a patriotic Christmas tree ready before the fireworks begin. Decorating for the 4th does not have to be elaborate or over the top it could be as simple as a wreath or garland. However, if the urge to decorate a full on 4th of July themed Christmas tree strikes—don’t let me stop you!

Love is in the air and apparently, in the trees too. Or maybe that is just at my house? However, you didn’t really think I was going to let Valentine’s Day pass without decorating a tree did you? Of course not, they are too much fun and the perfect way to say, I love you to a room!

Just because you live in a tiny house does not mean you can’t decorate big for Christmas. You just need the right slim, flatback, or corner Treetopia tree for the job. Join me on a tour of this adorable 256 square foot tiny house–all decked out for the holidays.

Pencil trees and table top trees are perfect for small spaces like a child’s room. When my tween asked for her own tree, I was more than happy to help. She picked the sweets theme and it just happened that I decorated an ice cream themed tree a time or two, so I had a bit of experience.

Jennifer Perkins with her Black Halloween tree

Remember when I posted about the Teal Pumpkin Project? Well in case you did not get enough Tuxedo Black Tree action, we are back for more! Here I am just leisurely relaxing with my cat (too bad my black one is not in the picture instead), and one of my many Halloween trees.

The latest addition to my Halloween tree forest is this guy: Mr. Lively Lavender. At first, I was skeptical about how a lavender tree would work for Halloween, but I gotta tell ya—this is my favorite tree this year! I know I never thought I could love a tree more than the candy corn tree, but this year, it’s happened.
