New Year’s Eve
“Being a visual person (can you tell from my groovy NYE tree), actually making something physical like a vision board helps me not only realize my goals for the upcoming year, it helps those goals to actualize.” Learn more from How to Host a New Year’s Eve Vision Board Party.
A Colorful Christmas

Some “Likes” for Summer
“Bring the outdoor fun into the air-conditioned comfort of your home with a summer fun tree. A quick trip to the beach toy aisle will supply you with everything you need to decorate your Some Like It Hot Tree.” Visit her Pink Flamingo Summer Tree post to see more.
Cinco De Mayo
“Using Crafty Chica paper, baker’s twine, a Big Shot, hole reinforcer stickers, Avery Elle Papel Picado goodies and embossing supplies, I whipped up a banner. It was mini and just right for a Winter White Potted Pine Tree.” More on her Cinco de Mayo Tree with Papel Picado Banner here.
One for Mom
Vintage and Easter
“I have decorated my Some Like It Hot Tree to look like a Vegas Showgirl, a Sweetheart Tree, and this month it is a giant kitschy ode to Easter.” Get the look by visiting her Vintage Easter Collectibles Tree post.
Tabletop Mardi Gras
“Pick up a few supplies at the craft and party store for your tabletop Winter White Treetopia tree and you can almost taste the beignets.” See more by visiting The next Best Thing to New Orleans – Decorate a Mardi Gras Tree.
Lovely in Valentines
“I just couldn’t bring myself to hide the awesomeness of my Some Like It Hot Tree in the attic after Christmas. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, nothing says love like a 7ft tall hot pink tree.” Visit Transition Your Pink Christmas Tree into a Valentine’s Day Tree to see more.
Everything in Between
“I love thrift stores, flea markets, estate sales – you name it. When I heard there was an actual holiday called National Thrift Shop Day, I felt it my duty as a red-blooded American to decorate a tree to show my support.”
