Remember This Tree, #13 Simply Christmas....Home Decor...


Hello all my sweet friends!  TGIM!!!  Wait...Rewind...Thats not the way that goes :-O 
 Oh well, its Monday!  Sooooo,  heres hoping to a Blessed Monday and that it goes by QUICKLY so we can be at Tuesday :)


Home Decor for the Simply Holidays Tree...

I just LOVE the Welcoming feel of this Tree that truly feels like Christmas, growing up as a kid!  As an Interior Designer, I get the opportunity to do a LOT of different Trees and themes (Uuuhhh, DUH! Right?  Like you didnt know that after going through 14 DAYS of Trees!  HELLER!) ...But this one truly speaks to the "Classics"

And the Snowmen....TOO CUTE!

Remember to get Creative...Use wall decor on your tree...it makes a BIG showing and its "Out of the Box!"

REMEMBER this trick too...Get picture frames, flip to the back and staple gun the ribbon on and VOILA, a tree ornament!



Fill a decorative bowl with these docorative beeds (you can find these on the ribbon isle in the christmas section OR in the Regular season isle) and simply lay some Ornaments on them, 
OR...I have used ACORNS out of our yard! 
Designer TIP: Need some Quiet time from the kiddos?  Send em out to the yard to gather ACORNS...(Wheather you use em or not....HeeHee) 
 I have NEVER done that...GASP!  Yeah, right Kara!  Are you kidding?   Sometimes Im like "I need WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more my lil  elves"  :) 


WALL DECOR!!!  Did you know you can use WALL DECOR on your TREE?!   Uuuhhh, like a THOUSAND TIMES KARA!!!
Heres a new tip!  You can use WALL DECOR on the WALL!  BRILLIANT!!!

I put tabletop trees EVERYWHERE!!!  Look out if you are my Client...You MIGHT get in your CAR to find a Tree vignette set up....NAW!  I havent done that....YET!  I have, however, put a wreath on the front of my Hubbys car!  That went over REAL WELL!  He was NEEEERT so happy!

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE these!  These came from market and sad to say, ive never seen these (or a "knock off") at a craft store....but they are DARLIN!  I can almost hear them singing..Can you?! 
Oh holy night, the stars are Brightly shining.... 


I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this ribbon ( From market! Uhg! )  It looked like it had Diamonds in it!


Ornaments for Place Card holders  :)


Like here..You can use Wreaths as Candle rings and table centerpieces ;-)  
Again...ALWAYS look at things in a TOTALLY different use! 
Stockings-hang on the tree
Wreaths-centerpieces on tables
Wall Decor-on trees
Ornaments-on tables
I HAVE A FEW OTHER LIL TRICKS UP MY SLEVE...GONNA PULL EM OUT ANOTHER DAY :)


Picture frames with Some Old Fashioned GREETING CARDS in them...another Home Decor idea...



Wall Decor in a Wreath...





For all you Crafty People...this is a GREAT DIY project!  Use Construction paper...and popcicle sticks glued to the back to make stand up...
Me....ordered from market!  LOL! 
 I just dont know how some of the AMAZING ladies in blogland have time to do all those DIY projects!!!  Like, EVERYTHING they do is a DIY thing!  God Bless Em!  They ROCK...I just cant seem to find the time to do all that! 
MAAAAAAAAYBE, cuz im decoring FOURTEEN TREES!  LOL!

Aaawww!  Arent they SWEET?????   They are Obviously NOT married yet!   :-O
J/K!!!


WHEW!  Thas a Biggin!!!  You DIYers...Get after it!

I LOOOOOOOOVE stacking wreaths!  I LUURVE Ribbon...so ANY way I can incorporate ribbon, DUNZO!!!!
Do some to look like Snowmen!

Im CRAAAZY about these lil beads!  I use em everywhere....
They are Inexpensive and SUPER EASY to make Festive decor...

I ADORE this little Santa in his "House"...It reminds me of Santa Land ( Here in Lubbock)  and going to see Mr and Mrs Clause and sitting in their laps, telling them what I wanted for Christmas! 
Uuuuhhhhhhhhhh...Am I to OLD to HOP UP into their laps and do that NOW!  The things I would ask for have DEFINATELY CHANGED!
I can hear it now!:
Santa...Can you pay my Mortgage.....Aaaaaaand, my electricity bill.............Aaaaaaaaaaaaand, A YEARS worth of a Housekeeper...........OH!  And I would LOOOVE it if you could get me someone to go do all my Grocery Shopping...AND, Gas for my car!!!
What do yall think????  Is that REASONABLE?  Ill sure give it WHIRL if it will work!!


These lit Presents are SOOOOOOOOOO CUTE!  I HAVE seen these at Hobby Lobby!

And the Trees in the Coloches....Really Pretty!

I SPY and Ornament in a bolw filled with those beads!!!!!

Well!  There you have it!  Home Decor for Tree #13!  Simply Christmas!!!
SO MUCH of these things can now be bought at Craft stores for 50 % off because we are sooo close to Christmas day!
OMGosh!
When I JUST typed that "We are so close to Christmas"  I just FREAKED a bit!  I have SOOOO MUCH left to do!
Like, shopping for gifts to go UNDER the tree!!!!   
Ive done about ALL I CAN DO to the TREES....I need to work on a GOAL of getting the stuff to go UNDER them!!!

Hope you all have a BLESSED Monday!

I BE Goin Shoppin for da KIDS!

I love those beads so neat!

Liz said...

So many great ideas here. I love the Trees in the Cloches, very elegant. Those beads with the candle is very festive too. I also love the carolers. I have a lot of Byers’ Carolers, but I have no clue how to decorate with them. Last year, I had no problem, but this year I can't make it work. =( So, there they sit in the basement.

Wonderful pictures....love all the ideas! =) Thanks for sharing! XO ~Liz

Oh, I like this one as well! I know what you mean about speaking to the heart! Just Beautiful!

Tete said...

I love it all- but the picture frames to me make it look like a postage stamp hanging in the tree. I think its cool.
Love all your ideas and most I have already used.
You should have seen my trees in the antique mall!
Hugs- Tete

Kara, this Christmas decor is just overwhelming -- so beautiful. Each area has its own personality. I could spend forever just looking and investigating and taking lots of mental notes. Beautiful post.
