Peppermint Tree

Linking up with Show and Tell Friday, Deck the Halls, Frou Frou and Punkin Seeds -
links in my side bar.

Peppermint tree at night. Window garland and all the foo foo added.


This is my peppermint tree. It is so cheery! . It was a little sparse at the bottom so I added some red and white trivets and hot pads inside the middle and it worked! I put a bunch of red and white ornies on this. There is a little pillow that was my aunts from a wreath she made that is tucked in. My old Barbie doll with a red dress, sits on the limbs. I had some red glass tear drop ornaments that I added at the end and it pulled it all together. I love it!
This is the tree topper. I had a couple of candy cane ornament gifts and
they were just perfect to add here.

Bottom with stuffed animals and other red and white decor.


This shows the red felt advent calendar at the bottom of the bay window.
Perfect to go with the Peppermint Tree!

You sound like a girl right up my Christmas alley! Love your peppermint tree, darling. How many trees do you do? I get up to about 11 or 12 throughout the house plus a Christmas village. I have started decorating already too as it takes awhile to do.
I will be back to see more.
I am going to a store tomorrow for my annual first visit for inspiration, they have over 40 themed trees and "rooms" of things for Christmas, it is wonderful.
Blessings, Linda

You are a woman after my own heart!! I love having different trees through out the house. and I absolutely adore this tree!!
I do a small Kitchen tree with pepermint candy ornaments and light and gingerbread and small kitchen utensil and cookie cutter ornaments!
My kitchen is then decorated with a gingerbread and candy theme.
