12 Days of Christmas

Day 1: Christmas Trees

I’m so excited to start the 12 days of Christmas series! Throughout the next three weeks, I will be sharing tips on decorating for Christmas, inspirational photos, fun crafts, and resources that will help make your Christmas one to remember. 

I can’t think of a better way to kick off the 12 days of Christmas series than a little Christmas tree inspiration! Many of you may already have your tree up, but I’m sure you’ll still appreciate these beautiful trees. This year I’m especially enjoying white trees; they’re so unexpected! 

Do you have traditions when it comes to decorating your Christmas tree? Every year when my family decorated our tree, my sister’s pink elephant was always the first ornament to go on the tree. We also hide a pickle ornament on the tree on Christmas morning, and the first kid to find it gets an extra present. I have no idea why it’s a pickle; apparently it’s an old German tradition, and it’s actually pretty hard to find it! I would love to hear some of your traditions; leave a comment!
