Oh, Christmas TreeS!

Pin It!
Yup, it's me ... again!
 
Just when you thought you were done seeing my Christmas  posts, I thought I'd spring one more on ya' before the big day!
 
I'll make this easy though ... not many words ... just pictures of a few things that I had yet to share.
 
First up, the tree in my husband's office ...


dressed in deep reds, dark greens, golds and browns and another crazy tree topper ...


full of our "12 days of Christmas" ornaments,
 
 

along with a vintage golfing Santa or two.


Moving on over to little man's playroom ... you never know who you'll find on his tree ...

 
There's Frosty flying around,


and even a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle ready to attack anyone who dares to mess with any of the ornaments.


In Jax's bedroom, I added a small table-top tree:


dressed in all things sports.


And, sp*eaking* of sports ... step on out to my husband's man cave, where I treated him to a NY Yankees tree (my apologies if you're not a fan).


For fun, I added a few things you'd find on a day at the ballpark, such as popcorn,

 
boxes of cracker jacks and an ice cold Budweiser.
 
 
Lastly, we'll cruise on over to our bedroom.  This tree is dressed in colors of blues, creams and golds to match our room's color palette:
 
 
Fleur-de-lis ornaments (from Dillard's) sparkle in the light,
 
 
as do words of "Joy,"
 
 
and a wild and crazy tree topper.
 
 
I'm a bit sad that, not only will our trees be coming down next week, but our festive Christmas cards will, too (idea from Pinterest),
 
 
as well as allll of this.
 
 
Are you a bit sad, like me, at how fast this holiday season has gone by, or, are you ready to start the New Year with a fresh, clean slate?
 
Merry Christmas!
 
Becca

Becca-Each and every tree is just so wonderful...from hubby's office to the boy's tree to yours which I absolutely LOVE. I think it is just soooo very pretty. I love your toppers, too, and think I will copy the idea for my tree next year.
Things are looking like Christmas all over at your house.
I, too, am amazed at how quickly the season has flown past- xo Diana

I love your drapes in your kitchen! I'm going to borrow that idea!!!! Erica

Beautiful trees! I think a man cave tree is in my future Christmas's. I always get sad right before Christmas.. I don't want all the beauty of the season to end. That is why I relish each and every minute of it.

Beautiful Becca.
I just tweaked the family room tree and furniture arrangement. The thought of removing all this luvliness makes me sad. I try to leave it up until 12th night. tradition since I was a child. That way I get to enjoy it until the 6th.
Thanks for sharing your luvly home.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.
Cheers, Gee

Everything looks so beautiful and festive! I love each of the trees. I have no clue how you've done all of them + everything else. I'm thinking it's your youth and high energy level ~ both of which I do not have. :)

I really feel sad that it's happened so fast. I feel like I've missed out on most of Dec. The new year brings another chance to get it right though. I do feel claustrophobic with all this Christmas stuff ~ my space is small so I think that's the reason. I will miss the lights on the tree ~ love them! I turn them on when I get up and off when I go to bed. :)

Merry Christmas!

Your trees all look great, Becca! You are so creative and come up with such fun and festive themes. I'm usually just about ready to by now to want to begin dismantling right after Christmas, but I'm not feeling that way this year. I think I'm going to be sad to see it go, too!

Hope you have a lovely and Merry Christmas!
Carol

They are all beautiful Becca!!! Love the one in your bedroom. I'm leaving my Christmas up until after New year's. I just put my tree up a few days ago...lol.

Merry Christmas!!

Patty said...

I'm totally with you on the sad part. I go into a deep depression taking it down and seeing how empty the house seems to look after. The bright side is, time goes by so fast before you know it the Christmas bins will be coming out again! Have a wonderful and blessed Christmas Becca, you and your beautiful family. The house is gorgeous as always!!!! Love Patty

The Decorative Dreamer said...

Love,love,love the tree in the office. The hubby's man cave tree is so cute too. Well, really all your tree's are just fabulous! I think mine will be up quite a bit longer since we are celebrating Christmas later with my side of the family and who knows when I will have the time to pack them all up again. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

You've decorated each tree so beautifully, Becca! I love how they are each so different yet fit in the room they are in perfectly. I don't take my stuff down until January 6th, so I've got a bit longer to enjoy mine. I've got a purge planned so I will start going through the stuff I didn't use first and get a box going for Goodwill.

Merry Christmas!

Suzy said...

Everything in your home is sooo beautiful, Becca. I don't blame you for being sad that it all gets packed away so soon. I always have mixed feelings - on the one hand I hate to see it go and on the other I'm ready to get the house back to normal. I hope you and your family have a joyous and blessed Christmas!

Judy said...

what can i say that already hasn't been said before? you are the QUEEN of Christmas trees and toppers and your home should be in a magazine...wait, is that a knock I hear on your front door...big time decorating magazine editor calling? (LOL)!

My SIL would love that NY Yankees tree...next to Alabama football that's his favorite team. He's flying to Miami for where he hopes Alabama wins another National Championship.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas my sweet friend....we'll be chillin' at the beach!

Donna White said...

Becca, beautiful trees. I am hoping to find some after christmas sales that will bring a new tree (for my kitchen or bedroom)for me to decorate next year along with some wonderful tree toppers or the supplies to make them. I am soooo loving lots of trees, yours are amazing! Thank you for sharing.

Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

I'm looking around my kitchen right now, thinking about how sad I'll be when all of the lights and sparkle are gone :( Aren't we glad though, that we blog, and can look back at each other's posts to cheer us up when it's all feeling a little drab?!! Thanks for all of your wonderful inspiration this season, and I hope your Christmas was everything you dreamed of! I'm so happy to have found your gorgeous blog this year.
xoxo, Andrea

Your trees are gorgeous Becca...and my hubby is a HUGE Yankees fan too!!...I have a baseball tree for him in his man cave....his "man cave" is a shrine to the Yankees!!....It certainly shows how much time and love went into those trees as they are just spectacular!

I can't even imagine how long it took you to put up and take down all those trees!
They are gorgeous! I love how personalized they all are!
We are a one tree family (if you don't count the small trees outside flanking the front door).

Happy new year!
