Christmas Tree O' Christmas Tree

I love my tree. Love it. It is done in a food theme since it is in between our kitchen and den. But I do have lots of other ornaments that are not food or candy related. Special tissue made ornaments that Bram has made or special ones that mean something to me or my family.

This year I tied cute polka dotted ribbon all around in fun colors, green, turquoise, and hot pink.

Mrs. Claus holding cakes and cookies and a picture of my bald baby.

A sugared pear, and a picture of my handsome devil.

Santa holding a basket of bread, candy cane, and a wrapped candy.

Sugar cookie with sprinkle, and the Christmas shoes Tess wore last year.

Piece of chocolate cake with icing. So cute.

A little truffle wrapped in a bow and sugared fruit. One of my favorites is the chocolate covered pretzel with sprinkles. Loved them so much I bought all the store had!!

Santa holding a cake and a picture of my dude.

Lots of cupcakes and candy canes!

Love the colors.

Here is a tiny old milk tin. I have these, tiny pitchers, whisks, and rolling pins throughout. Also, tiny tea cups and saucers.
So here is my tree, like you give a toot. But whatever, I think it is adorable and just might buy some more ornaments today for it. So there.

It is so uncool to post about such a darling tree after I did so about my Charlie Brown version.

Love it, though.

Sooo cute! Love it! We got ours last night.... I plan on spending the weekend turning the tree and my home into a Christmas Wonderland. (Or make it look like someone threw up Christmas everywhere... As my scrooge friend always says. I tend to go overboard.)

Yes, love the ribbon!
Good idea! Glad I saw this before I put my tree up!

Love that ribbon and tree! TOO CUTE!

I really like the bright colors and the way you used the ribbon...I might try that next year instead of using the ribbon as a garland around the tree.

CUTE!! I love decorating my tree still now, but it was so much more fun when the kids were little. So much more color and much more festive. Now it's just me, by myself and a bottle of wine.
How pathetic am I?

I think that's awesome! It couldn't be more different from mine but that's what I love about it. Very fun and whimsical!!!
