I only really theme my trees by colour, I have always used red and gold in the past, and have usually only one tree but my ideal would be 3. One in the living room, one in the family room and one more either in the dining room or hallway.

My living room needs a major overhaul - the plaster needs to come off the walls and the ceilings need to be replaced. It definately won't be done by christmas so I will use my usual red and gold theme.

We are currently working on another project (family room and laundry) which I am hoping will be completed before Christmas. So my plan for a red and silver tree in the family room may become a reality, will have to see.

I am in the process of collecting some plum and silver decorations for a tree either in the hallway or dining room.

I do have a snowman theme in my kitchen and I have to say this is my favourite. I absolutely love snowmen.

Snowbelle, I love and collect snow people!!!

And color themes are fantastic! Then you can use the items around the room also. I've done that in the past and it is flawless decorating! Kudos! :smilecc:

Last year my dear MIL gave us her pre-lit tree for the family room. This tree I decided would have only homemade decorations other than the lights. A week before Christmas we get a real tree and it goes in the dining room.It has a whole mix of different types of ornaments.
One day In January my DH and I had a wee argument. I guess either this was his way of apologizing or my Christmas craziness has finally worn off on him. Because he came home later that same day with a new pre-lit tree. :lol: :lol:
One problem-where to put it???
As for lights. Well....there are never enough of them on my trees. Everyone just rolls their eyes at me when I complain that I need to get more every year.
Sorry for rambling.
3 trees for sure, maybe more.

mm :jump: :jump: :jump:

This year I will hopefully be having 2 trees for the first time.

I am in the process of having my old garage converted into a family room, hopefully it will be done by Christmas, and will have a skinny tree in there which I bought in the sales last Christmas.

I also plan on having a tree in my living room. We usually have an artificial one but providing my family room is completed then after Christmas we will move onto re-modelling the living room so I may go for a real one . Will have to see where we are at when the time comes.

My children also have a mini tree each in their bedrooms.

We are now having difficulty even thinking of a tree. My Dad and I were going to shop for a new larger prelit tree for he & Mom. Now that he is gone...........I wonder if I will even decorate this year.

All of your decorations sound wonderful! What a merry group! :smilecc:

My tree doesn't have a theme. I sometimes try to color coordinate it though. My favorite decorations are the ones made my kids. :scene: :throw:

I want to get a 4-ft. Christmas Tree for my daughter this year, for her bedroom. I'd like to get a prelit one, but if not, I'm sure it's not a big deal to string a 4-ft tree with lights, lol. Anyway, I want to let her make some garland for it with popcorn and cranberries. and pick out some of the ornaments off of the big tree to put on it. Then I'd like to get a small set of color-themed ornaments to let her put on it. I think that will be so much fun for her and make her feel extra-special this year, just when she's feeling a little outshined by her "new baby" brother. I also figured she could put the presents she makes and buys for friends and family under her tree, and maybe in exchange, "Santa" will leave a couple of her presents under there on Christmas Eve... :P

Yay!! I'm so excited! I hope I can get more of my family into the Christmas Spirit earlier this year, so that the "season" lasts much longer...

I have 2 big trees - one eclectic with all the beautiful ornaments that I have collected over the years and the other is a silver and white theme.

I also have 2 table top trees - one that is decorated with gold, silver and pine cones and the other is decorated with starts of all colours.

I am seriously thinking about buying a new tree this year for my room and a real one in a big pot that I can leave out on the back deck to decorate.

Watching a snippet of Joan Rivers on QVC last weekend I saw Russian enameled egg ornaments and decided to buy enough for a tiny tree in our master bathroom! I am so excited!!!

Our tree has never really had a direct theme. It's usually a variety of things that stand out to us, plus ornaments of old...we still have ornaments from my parents' first Christmas together as well as my grandfather's childhood ornies. We have tons and tons and tons of Hallmarks that we've collected over the years, and wonderful beaded ornies that Mom made way back when.

Now that I've moved out, I don't know if my fiance and I will have an actual theme or not. I want to start out own "memory tree" :)

Our family room always has a 'memory tree'. We had to start over a few years ago. Your tree sounds beautiful from the heart, Silver Bells, that this is the most beautiful tree!!! :holly1:
