How did Christmas creep up on me once again?! It’s hard to believe we’ll be celebrating next week and the year will come to a close shortly after. I’m trying to cram in all the fun holiday festivities while I can. I’m embracing the decor, gift giving & wrapping, our recent snowfall, holiday baking, and Christmas music. I thought it might be fun to squeeze in one last holiday post and share 10 of my favorite trees I’ve seen this season… all from fellow design bloggers! Tis the season to spread the love. Before we dive in, if you missed MY tree and holiday home tour, check it out here.
#1 // Blue and Beautiful
Susan shared this image for our recent cookie swap and despite the delicious rum balls sitting on the table, I couldn’t take my eyes off of that gorgeous tree! The monochromatic bow, the delicate ornaments, and the fact that it’s sitting in a brass urn on the coffee table- what’s not to love? That woman is a creative genius.
#2 // Small Table Tree
Brady’s masculine and modern space looks great with a touch of greenery… no ornaments or ornate decor needed! The naked tree adds texture, height, and color to this beautiful tonal living space. He’s just proving that holiday decor doesn’t have to be complex or difficult!
#3 // Pretty in Pink
Gwen does it again with her holiday decor (everything she touches turns to gold!)… this time in her daughter’s room. A pretty in pink tree that looks sophisticated and fun- all while complimenting the canopies that drape over the headboards. It’s a smart move that adds height and draws your eye upward to the beautiful wallpapered ceiling.
#4 // Flocked, Cozy, & Minimal
Kim has since decorated her tree and it looks fabulous, but I was most impressed with her flocking experiments this season! She tested different types of flocking on different types of greenery, garland, and trees. She did the tough work for us and let me tell you- she knows what she’s doing! Her holiday decor this year is modern and stunning, to put it simply.
#5 // Soft, Feminine, and Textural
Cara’s tree is styled with dried florals and I’m loving the tiny pops of color they add! It looks so soft, textural, and lovely… super feminine- in a cool way. She has quite the knack for playing with pastels and neutrals in her home.
#6 // Neutral Texture
It’s no surprise that Shea’s tree turned out stunning this year. In her typical style, she used lots of neutral metallics and textural ornaments- brass, glass, and wood hues heavily styled on the flocked tree look cozy and fresh!
#7 // Simple Scandinavian
Cassandra managed to style the perfect Scandi tree this year. I love how minimal and warm it feels. The sparse branches really lend negative space that pulls your attention to the garland and ornaments. It’s a beautiful combination!
#8 // Potted Entry Tree
Jacquelyn shows that you don’t need a full size, grand Christmas tree for your home to feel festive. This easy potted tree in her entryway paired with a spray of greenery on the mirror is a subtle and sophisticated way to acknowledge the holiday season… without spending a ton of time or effort!
#9 // Rustic Mountain Tree
Do you guys remember Cathy’s tree saga last year?! You HAVE to read it here. I’m just happy she has a whole tree this year. Haha! I’m joking… that story still makes me belly laugh. In all seriousness- I love the tradition behind the hunt for her tree. She and her family go into the mountains, find the perfect tree, and style it beautifully in their farmhouse. Don’t even get me started on that stunning mirror and wreath.
#10 // Warm and Bright
Lastly, my friend Sarah perfectly executed a warm and bright tree in her living room! It doesn’t get prettier than that, my friends. I love the way she uses neutrals… and I also like that she photographed it lit.
Wasn’t that fun?! I enjoyed this little tour! I hope you all have a wonderful and festive weekend. We have a couple holiday parties I’m looking forward to. We’re also hoping to knock out the formal living room (finally). Maybe that will be my holiday gift to you guys…. the room reveal, since you’ve all been waiting patiently. Are you on board for that? Haha! I’m so ready for it to be finished. Whew!

Lovely! Everyone’s trees are so uniquely magical, and your warm, kind words are perfectly apt. Here’s to some holiday relaxing and celebrating! (Just got to get my grades done today.) And, I can’t wait for the living room reveal! I know it will be a stunner. Happy Holiday Friday!!!🎄💖

Thanks for sharing the holiday tree tour. So much fun to see the many variations from those in design field. We just mostly have the same tree from year to year. I’m kind of liking the sparse, imperfect trees also known as the Charlie Brown trees, since they are so often found in nature that way. So funny how we always tried to avoid those on the tree lots.

It is so fun to look at how everyone styles their tree! I know, I know- the sparse trees are growing on me too. I’ve always had a classic, full tree… but the minimal ones are so beautiful and organic looking!
DannaDecember 20, 2019 at 8:10 am
Enjoyed the tree tour! The masculine tree even without ornaments was still warm, cozy and I loved it! So many variations and personalities that come through with each one. I feel like less is becoming more (or enough) for me. Happy Friday & the weekend!
SarahDecember 20, 2019 at 9:07 am
I totally agree, Danna! The minimal trees are really beautiful. I think I’m becoming more of a maximalist (haha), but the those trees convince me maybe minimal is the holiday decor route to go. lol! Happy Friday!

Ok I’m officially in the Christmas spirit with this post but I have still lots of shopping to do. I think I must like the pressure of last minute gift buying, crazy crowds and insanely long lineups 🙄 anyway…..
All of the Christmas trees showcased on this post are so lovely with each being so incredibly different. It’s really fun seeing all the unique ways Christmas decorating can be displayed, so many ideas and wonderful inspiration. Cheers and Merry Christmas Sarah!
SarahDecember 20, 2019 at 9:09 am
Woohoo!! I’m in the same boat, Colleen. I had zero time to shop and now here we are- Christmas is next week. I tried to run to the mall yesterday and it was a mad house, so I turned around and left. Haha! Have a great weekend and Merry Christmas! Glad you enjoyed the tree tour :)
