Each year our decor team decorates over 60 trees throughout the store. I offer here another sampling of a few more that have been completed for 2011. Enjoy the sights!
This tree is highlighted with green glittered thistles and artichokes – another in a long line of surprising and beautiful choices for a Christmas tree.
Along with the beautiful red and gold decorations on this tree, I’m drawn to the striking gold deer in front – would love to have a mantle or hall table worthy of being graced by one of these creatures.
Filled with animal ornaments made from natural elements, this tree is always a favorite for me. Notice the three platforms with snow-covered cabins that have been worked into the tree this year – such a clever touch.
(By the way, don’t yell at me if I haven’t gotten every tree name just right – I haven’t yet received the formal name list.)
Case in point, this is our kitchen tree, or maybe the gingerbread tree ~ but I think of it as the Limeade Tree! If you look closely, under the heavy white flocking, the branches of this tree are lime green – it looks luscious enough to lick, but there’s probably a tag attached warning me not too. It’s a colorful and refreshing backdrop for the peppermint all-day suckers and other kitchen helpers making themselves at home in its branches.
And changing gears just a bit, we have a stunning new collection of tin angels on the floor this year. They come in several different sizes, and are so eye-catching – I would love to see photos of how you use them in your Christmas decor this year.
They are so elegant and whimsical at the same time ~and you know I love whimsical! Along with the angels we’re showing this amazing silver deer.
That’s it for today. And I only used the word “glitter” once! Aren’t you proud of me?
Be sure to check out our fall events calendar for the store – we’ll be showcasing several new artists and a cookbook author for signings from September into December. (I’m sorry if the items aren’t in perfect date order – we have elves working on that right now!).

P.S. Would someone please tell me whether to put the description above or below the image?? I can never figure out which is best, and I see that I changed directions in the middle of this post! I hope you can follow along….
