Did you know the tradition of decorating an evergreen tree at Christmas started in Livonia and Germany in the 16th century? I'm so glad it did because it really gets people into the Christmas spirit and allows people like me to become preoccupied at home for an entire month until I'm sick of seeing pine needles everywhere!
Do you have a preference when it comes to trees?
My favorite tree for this year would definitely go to the upside down tree that hit the market a couple years back. It's definitely not your traditional tree but it is absolutely beautiful! I think trees in general in all shapes and sizes are pretty. Depending on your home and style you can find excellent trees from the supper skinny look to the more traditional Pine Tree.
I just love the top hats ...
A friend of mine once put different trees in each room of her house. How cute would these look in a children's playroom?
