It’s almost that time of year, and for some of you, you’ve already started. I personally have not even initiated the conversation with Mdub yet to bring out the boxes. Mainly because I’m dreading a certain 9 month old pulling ornaments off the tree for the next month and a half. However, that doesn’t mean I’m not giddy inside and can’t wait to see PB’s face when his tree goes up.
If you’ve seen the pictures of his room, you know that he has giraffes on the wall, and his Christmas tree does as well. I found the ornaments before his first Christmas, big time on sale, and of course, I don’t have a picture of it. I’ll snap one when I get it up next week.
Now, onto the fun stuff. Yes, I love all things boy, and if I’m being honest, I really do like dressing PB more than AB. It’s fun to see him with all his trucks and trains and do all things boy. But, I think I’m going to LOVE doing a girl tree. At this point in her life, we need something small that will fit on her changing table. Crazy lady would be all over that thing if I had it on the ground. So, remember a couple of weeks ago when I raved about the super cute Anthro ornaments? Well, I think I found a close second….and at none other than Tar Jay. I know they’ve had their Christmas decorations out for some time now, but I’ve been good and have stayed away from that section of the store until this week. That’s when I came across these amazing pastel ornaments. I was immediately drawn to them because they remind me of my great-grandmother. She had all glass old lady style ornaments and these just remind me of her. I probably won’t be using the feathers, but aren’t they cute?
Now to find a tree. I love, love flocked trees. Every year as a kid, we got a real tree. I remember begging my parents for a flocked tree, and one Christmas my dad agreed……well kind of. He said we could buy a can of flocking and spray it when we got home. I was so excited the entire 50 miles (remember I’m from the middle of nowhere.) When we got home, he sprayed the can, and much to my disappointment, it covered maybe half a branch. I’m still begging Mdub, and one day, I promise, I’ll have my real flocked tree. But, until then, this 3 foot beauty might have to do. The lights are perfect, and I love the slight Charlie Brown look.
Even though I already have PB’s tree, I’m a sucker for a tree on top of an old car/camper. Might have to change out his tree when we outgrow the giraffe room. All found at our fav place!
While browsing the aisles, I came across these and thought, who would do a tree with these weird ornaments. Then, it hit me – a fun/wacky favorite things tree! If I were doing a favorite things tree for PB, these ornaments would definitely be on it. Random likes of a 2 year old!
Any others out there put trees in their kids’ rooms? Not sure why I started with PB, but it’s a way for me to get my “non traditional Christmas decor” bug out of my system. Only 37 sleeps until Christmas!!!
