Whether it’s tucked in a corner or taking center stage, my favorite part of holiday decor is undoubtedly the Christmas tree. Whenever I see a blog post or article about a holiday home tour, my eye goes straight for the photos of the softly glowing Christmas trees. Growing up, we always had two trees: one for all the colorful, mismatched ornaments we received as gifts or made at school, and a fancier one with my mom’s electric candle lights and pretty ornament collections. Now that I get to decorate my own home for the holidays, we have the same two-tree policy. The tree in our family room is covered in fun colored lights, the angel tree-topper we’ve had for over a decade, and a wide array of ornaments ranging from baby’s first Christmas to hand-painted cardboard gingerbread men with my kids’ school pictures glued in the center. Once the lights are wrapped around its branches, the kids are in charge of putting ornaments on the tree. It always ends up looking cute and a little haphazard. The tree in our living room, a room that gets used far less often than the family room, gets to be all mine. It has soft white lights and all of my delicate glass ornament sets that match. I get to spread them evenly over the tree, thoughtfully choosing where each ornament will sit. Both trees are beautiful in their own way, and both have an equal share in bringing holiday cheer to our home.
As holiday home tour posts have started popping up, I’ve enjoyed looking at the gorgeous trees that bloggers design. Some are simple and others are over-the-top. Here are just a few of the beautiful Christmas trees I’ve spotted so far this year.
