Decorating with Christmas Trees Throughout the Home

Amazing Christmas Ideas

Think outside the box and discover the joy of decorating each room with it’s own unique Christmas tree.

We’re use to having our Christmas Tree in our largest room of the house, which is usually the family room. Adding Christmas trees to other rooms as well will continue the celebration and joy throughout the home.

Consider decorating a tree for each child’s room. Most bedrooms are small so a small Christmas tree could be placed on the chest or dresser. Decorate the tree with ornaments that reflect the child’s interests and use ribbons to carry out the color scheme. You can also purchase ornaments with your child’s name printed on them such as this personalized Santa ornament. That gives the tree a very special personal touch. And I especially like these Lil’ Angel Girl and Lil’ Angel Boy Personalized Ornaments. Those are so adorable!

Very small trees placed on kitchen counter tops, the refrigerator, or cabinets dress up the kitchen, especially when placed in groups of three using different sizes. They can be dressed up with berries or small fruit picks or just sprayed with a little snow. You can also use one or more these collectible tabletop Christmas trees. They don’t require any extra decorating. Just place them anywhere and they instantly light up a room with Christmas. I myself have several of these.

The dining room is the perfect place to add an additional tree; especially if Christmas is the only time it is used. This room should look especially beautiful and festive. A slender Christmas tree in the corner, a small tabletop tree placed on top of a hutch, sideboard or small table you have added for this purpose will add decorative excitement to your celebration. Make your dining room special. The entire room should sparkle with joy and excitement. A Christmas tree placed in the appropriate spot will add enchantment that is unique to this time of the year.

The entrance hall is the perfect place for a Christmas tree. It will immediately shout “Merry Christmas” to everyone who enters the front door, whether it’s you and your family or guests with whom you want to share the holidays. It should of course look very special since this is the first room your visitors see as they enter your home. And ideal tree for the entrance hall is The Tree with Father Christmas.

If you’re decorating on a budget, the use of ribbons and bows will go a long way in adding elegance and charm without breaking the bank. Buy the ribbon when it’s on sale and make your own bows. It’s simple to do and simply elegant. A little Christmas tree will wish you a Merry Christmas in every room. Happy Holidays and may the Lord bring happiness and peace to your home.

    This will be my kids 1st X-mas of having their own trees in their room, and they are looking forward to it. My husband loves the smell of fresh pine so we’re having that in our formal living room. Since I decorate my tree with Santas, and they’re quite heavy, I have my “fake” tree in the family room. I’m kind of stumped with what to do with my guest bathroom. Any suggestions are welcome. I’ve looked for Santa towels, they are not appealing to me at all.

    My family started years ago decorating the entire house. We put greenery over the kitchen door, lights on the mantle in the family room and never skip on the outside docors in the back of the house since that is the part of the house where we come in and out of the house. Small Christmas scenes set up in the bathrooms add to the decor and Christmas ambiance for anyone who enters those rooms. Never skip on Christmas!

    A Christmas tree in the bathroom would be adorable decorated with little fancy soaps. Doesn’t have to be the red and green type, but decorate it with the colors of your bathroom. As an alternative why not tiny bathroom items from dollhouses tied with pretty ribbons and hung on the tree?? In other rooms, if your child is a computer wiz, why not use CD’s, old mice, and even the old “ribbon” from inside a computer to decorate, add lights and the shiny CDs will sparkle. My son had a collection of keychains he bought as souveniers everywhere we went - they are adorable as ornaments, plus you can smile as you remember all the fun times you had at each place visited. I tuck several in my own tree now (he is gone and on his own now - a grown man) But we have had several trees in the house when they were younger - each with a “personality” that reflected the decorator or the room. Have fun and BE CREATIVE!!

    this is one of my favorite things to do is to decorate Christmas trees! My main tree is decorated with Birds, Bells, Angels, Christmas balls instruments, frosted riendeer, and berries. I try to stick to 2 or 3 main colors, red and white with gold. Then I have the dept. 56 Dickens Village under the tree with trains running around. For my second tree I have a miniature Hallmark tree with a very mini Christmas village all setup and a very small train set going around this tree. I’ve been collecting these mini ornaments for over 10 years so I have quite alot of them. My Kitchen tree is with of coarse baking ornaments, hallmark, and I have a nature tree with a village and last a Hallmark Fairy tree. have a very Merry and Blessed Holiday Season, Bernadette Lasorsa

    I have decorated my home from top to bottom for the past forty four years and my children , grandchildren and now, our great grandchildren can’t waite to see what Grandmas done each year. They love it. I have snow scenes throughout my home and each one is different The children go from room to room to see each village. I have a tree in each room and one is decorated with all the things our children made while in school , they enjoy looking at them and remembering fun they had making them. I also used the small dolls and trucks they had as children along with pieces of their crib mobiles that once adorned their cribs. Of all the trees , this one is the one they all enjoy being around.For the last couple of years my grandchildren have been bringing me small items of theirs to place 0n the tree , It has become a real center piece not just for them but for visitors as well.
    Merry Christmas everyone May God richly bless you this beautiful season.

    For a personalized touch, try adding small photographs to your tree. I used some small frames that were designed for scrapbooking. I also added Christmas photographs of when my children were younger to the outside of small boxes that I use each year to wrap in. Be sure to make color copies so you don’t lose your originals.

    I, too, put a tree in almost every room. I have a tree with nothing but snowmen on it in my dining room. My kitchen tree is decorated with red & white check ribbon as garland and small kitchen utensils as ornaments. For a tree topper, I use a Santa hat and have a red tree skirt. Very festive! One year we collected a lot of sand dollars from the beach, bleached them white, put them all over the tree tied with red ribbons and for a tree topper, we used a star fish. It was a lot of memories from vacations at the beach. My main tree is a hodge-podge of old and new ornaments, those made by my children and lots and lots of white lights. Christmas is wonderful!!!

    I love Christmas! I have a Christmas tree in almost every room. The main tree is 9ft tall and decorated with hundreds of ornaments collected over 30 years. The family room has a corner tree which my boys get to decorate with their ornaments from school and ones that have been bought for them. In the dining room is a “star trek” themed tree, with blue lights and all star trek hallmark ornaments. In the sitting room is an irish tree, all green and a shamrock tree topper. In each bedroom (4) is a ceramic tree. My boys love having a tree in their bedroom, we leave them lit even during the day, to make it festive. The guest bathroom even has a tree which was stitched by a friend and I have framed it. The kitchen has a feather tree. I also have glass trees thoughout the house on tables and shelves. It makes it very festive!!

    I’m so glad to meet someone that loves Christmas as much as I do. I have had a tree in everyroom of my house for about 20yrs. My house just glows and looks like a story book home. I have had as many as 23 different trees at one time scattered all over the house from 2ft.trees on top of chests to 7ft.trees in each room with garlands and swags to match the trees. My friends are amazed to see the bathrooms decorated for christmas. Can’t wait to start this year, this is how I found your site. Thanks for the ideas, I’m running out.

    We have a tree in every room. Living room - our “family” tree. It has all the ornaments from when our kids were younger (kids are now 25, 22, 16) and when we were first married (been married 28 yrs), 2 in the nook (blue & white) and a fiber optic spinning one, 2 in our bedroom (white Victorian, and a small one on my cedar chest (w/very small packages), 2 in the family room (12 ft high one) w/burgandy and gold large ornaments and a “woodland tree” that we found on the side of the road in a ditch! (all woodland ornaments - bears, ducks, pheasants, various birds, cranberries, pinecones, etc.), 1 in the dining room (red and silver), one in my daughters room (decorated in candy ornaments and she has her m&m’s from past years that are with their Christmas clothes on. I also have 4 manger scenes up, greenery all over the kitchen cabinets, Santas, angels, snowmen and a lot more. Someone I know said “it always looks like Christmas threw up in your house”. We love it and hate to see it down. One of my kids had a great suggestion - put timers on all the tree so we don’t have to always plug them in and take them out.

    My mom does this, every year. She has a huge tree that goes in her family room, then another that goes in the foyeur, being the first thing you see as soon as you come into her home. I love coming home for Christmas because the feeling of mom’s home for the holidays just puts my soul at ease. I’m really really looking forward to Christmas 08! God Bless!

    My husband is a soldier and is currently training before leaving for afghanistan. He will be home for two days around Thanksgiving. My son who is 4 and I, are trying to get the whole house decorated for him, for an early Christmas. My theme for my tree is all red white, and blue, from ribbon and beads to the ribbon draped around it. However I am on a very tight budget, but would really like to suprise him with a beautifully decorated americana themed house. If anyone has any ideas of decorating on a budget, or has any ideas for homemade decorations please let me know. We have 22 days and counting until he gets home. God Bless Everyone and Have a wonderful Christmas holdiday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Last year was the first time I decorated my own flat and decided way too late that I wanted a fake white Christmas tree. As a result I had a very cute, silver candle tree. This will go into the bedroom this year as I bought by white tree nice and early. I have a 1 bedroom flat so that’s already the two main rooms done.
    For the bathroom I have snowman towels which my mum gave me as a present last year, but the easiest way to decorate a bathroom is use window stickers or gel gems around your bathroom mirror and maybe a christmassy candle by the bath which is enough to transform a bathroom. Find a cinnamon soap too. Even better if your mirror decorations are of Christmas trees as then you are keeping a tree in every room!
    Because I had the luxury of starting entirely from scratch I’ve chosen a colour theme for my decorations that blends in nicely with my existing decor. That way even un-christmassy soft furnishings look equally part of the decorations.

    for a guest room, if it is being used over christmas then a small table top tree would be a lovely touch. decorate with small silver or coloured baubles.

    i would not go for santa towels, insted a gold or red star may be easier to find and thier is a wider range.

    lol maxie im only 14 aswell =D

    merry christmas and god bless y’all

    I love small 2 foot table top trees and have them in almost every room of my house with different themes. I have learned a trick to make managing 10 small trees a breeze. When you decorate the tree, use florist wire to securely wire on all ornaments, ribbons, bows, etc. At the end of the season, place each small tree, base first into a large draw string plastic garbage bag. Pull those strings tight and hang the entire tree from a nail in the rafters of your basement or attic. Next Christmas, all you have to do is take the tree out of the plastic bag, tidy up the decorations, and you are ready to display in a matter of moments. As I get older, packing away every individual ornament became such a chore, I almost gave up my little trees. Now I can really enjoy each and every one. I still redo a couple every year as my interests change just to make it more fun.

    I, too, love to spread the joy and wonder of Christmas throughout my 100-year old house. I have trees in each room … yes, even the bathroom. The living room holds ornaments from my childhood along withones I have given each of my four children as they were growing up and beyond - crocheted snowflakes, cranberry garland, birds, a real bird’s nest with not-so-real eggs, pictures of each child in kindergarten, handmade ornaments my grandma made from styofoam balls laden with velvet, fake jewels and sequins, and real-looking icycles dripping from the branches. The front bedroom tree - the grandkids’ playroom - holds ornaments given to each grandchild at our Thanksgiving celebration … these range from Dora to Elmo to football & baseball collectibles. The kitchen tree is adorned with silver cookie cutters, apples and snowflakes. My outdoorsy daughter’s tree has all natural ornaments made from twigs and berries … there are even a few sets of deer antlers hanging on a branch. My bedroom is adorned with angels, a collection I started years ago. My newest grand-daughter has a special little tree in her bedroom that is all in pink - pacifiers, teddy bears, rocking horses and rattles. And, the tree in the bathroom - well it’s decorated in a southwest Indian theme including a native American nativity scene at the base. The house literally glows from room to room with something new to see each year. To top it off, every horizontal spot in the house has snowmen - crystal ones for the china cabinet, funny ones in the playroom, teapot and cookie jar ones in the kitchen - where there’s an empty spot, there’s a perfect place for a snowman (or woman). So, enjoy Christmas - wrap your arms around it and embrace the wonder you see when you watch a small child gaze in wonder at the lights that glow with a warmth only this magical season can hold.

    Looking for ideas for my daughter’s new “big girl” bedroom christmas tree I stumbled upon this wonderful site. I myself am a Christmas fanatic and I’ve “converted” my entire family… My husband and I work so much that we wanted our 3 year old twins and ourselves to enjoy the tree as much as possible as they LOVE Christmas. So we have a tradition I’m sure will sound crazy but for us it works! Every halloween we take the kids to get candy and come home a little early… we order in pizza and make hot cider/coco and have hot donuts from the local farm. We come home to watch a scary Christmas movie - A Christmas carol and we invite all our family and friends who want to come over to be a part. We take out all the trees and begin the fun.

    I have a tree in every single room… Last year someone asked me the most profound question… “What Tree do you open your presents under on Christmas?” LOL!

    I have a Gingerbread and gumdrop tree in our kitchen - we purchased a “corner tree from JCPenny that I receive so many complements on. I top the tree with a Gingerbread man I found at Crackerbarrell - who has cute items at resonable price. the lights are all candy design and I buy gingerbread and cinamon air freshners and hang from the tree in that room - keeps it smelling like I’m baking all season.. The rest of my kitchen is filled with gingerbread decor and christmas greens with small flicker bulb lights in the greens.. So warm and cozy…

    On my 3 seasons porch we put an electric fireplace to use it all year and I made that into a Farm Porch Christmas… Filled with all types of old fashion tractors and farm decor like fake eggs, chickens, cows, etc.. I found at crackerbarrel and on ebay for farm decor… My twins nursery was farm theme so it was a great way to keep all their farm christmas ornaments and decor…the tree has a star made of twigs and white lites and the country touch and the fireplace with greens is amazing! No matter how cold you just want to stay there :)

    My Dining /Living Room has a tree I’ve named “The Family Tree” it is filled with all Gold, Amber and beige and sage green color balls and picks from my local HOBBY LOBBY which is an amazing store!! Then I hang little picture frames I found in shape of sage green and gold christmas trees I bought over 100 - I have a big family and I have pics of every member from my husband and my great great grandparents to the little ones born recently… everyone loves to come by and re-live the memories ! Such a fun tree! The skirt is a champangne color skirt with “snow” I sprayed on it and I put my dickens village under the entire tree so it is visibe and fills the floor with light and glow too!

    The bedroom in my sons room is all Woodland filled with all woodland creatures, moose, deer, and more - topped with a black stuffed bear on top and flicker flame lights on the tree… the tree skirt is nothing more than a warm hunter green blanket with all woodland stuffed animals around the skirt.

    My master bedroom is all handblown glass ornaments that are “vintage” my bedroom looks like an old victorian bed and breakfast and has an electric fireplace in to suplement heat and I decorate that with all greens and berries and the cherrywood furniture is accented with little statues and christmas greens and berries … It makes us want to go to sleep and wake up and feels like we are on a vacation everyday!

    We decorate our family room with ornaments from our great great grandparents to today - all ornaments with special meaning and when we pack them away we put them in a box and lable what each ornament is and so that one day when passed on just as we received them the children will know where each came from and why it was so important - makes it very special…

    Our bathrooms all also decorated… One is all snowmen and snow flakes and is a white and light blue/green color so the snow just fell into that room.. lights and the smell of peperment flls the room… Its so pretty and light and airy. The next bathroom is a beige and champagne color in general… so we went with a tree that is that color with white lights. The glistening of the glitter ornaments and cream color is soft and the smell of vanilla fills the air. We accent the room with greens and twig design berry pics in dark cranberry color - very rich looking!

    The playroom is in the design of white, blue, silver colors and has snowflakes and snowmen in white and blue. Crystal icycles and more… we put a lot of unbrakable ornaments we found at the store on this tree so the kids can’t get hurt ! To prevent them from going near it we found a small 12 inch wooden fence from homedepot in white - it looks like a picket fence we put the tree in the corner and this fence all around it about 2 feet from the tree. Piled the bottom with cotton snow and moving animated snowmen and kids playing in snow… found those on ebay too! they love to watch it but have not gone near it…

    We just finished the garage too and we will be putting one in there too filled with old tools my husband can’t use anymore and red lights… He loves the smell of cinamon so I will be getting pinecones with cinamon spray that you can get at the craft store…. Any other ideas are greatly appreciate for this tree too!

    Oh, yes, we buy air fragrance from yankee candle for each and every room to match the theme ….

    My daughters bedroom is the one we are stuck on.. I know kids change their minds so much and right now she is into pink and princess things…. Her bedroom is all oak and poster bed… the decor is all beige with only a few very faint pink touches like a cross and bonnet on the wall and dress that says for this child I have prayed…

    Since here bedroom is very traditional and cozy I though that a theme of “Its a wonderful life ornaments might work with light pink and brown christmas balls … and the Its a wonderful life village under the tree.. …

    We waited 8 years for these miracles and wanted to give them a special tree for their new bedrooms… Any ideas will be appreciated for her room.

    Hope you enjoy our families traditions and may your Christmas be filled with joy, peace, happiness that only this season can bring. God Bless You! Thank you for reading and allowing me to share our traditions.

    We have been decorating with multiple (about 12) trees for the last 20 years Each tree has its own theme (example Santa, teddy bears, hunting and fishing, Scandanavian, etc.) Our kids are all grown and live all over the country, but we still do it.Grandkids and great grandkids all enjoy them as much as we do. Also, 90 percent of the decorations are homemade.

    Decorating with multiple trees is what I have been doing for years. When I put the trees up I think about what is the room used for, what is the theme of the room and also and most important how much time do I want to spend decorating that room.

    For my family room I know that this is where all my family and friends will be gathering and all of them have children. So this is where I put up my “Candy Christmas Tree”. Over the years I have been collecting christmas decorations and this room is decorated with candy cane, lolly pops, ribbon candy, and various other old fashioned candies. I pair this with traditional red, green, and gold plaid ribbion. Instead of using the tradition angel or bow on top of the tree I take three foot candy canes and place them coming from the top of the tree. To futher the candy theme I spread the ornaments around the room in the garlands that are on the fireplace, doors, and the wreaths that adorne the room.

    Now in the kitchen which is decorate in more of a county theme I do a “Country Christmas Tree”. I take red berries, white poinsettias, nutcrackers, and a red, green, gold and black plaid ribbion to top off this theme. Notice that I am used a plaid ribbion again to link the room together even thought they are not the same theme. What I do to futher enhance the theme is take pine cones and put them on the tree and also around the bottom of the tree to enhance the theme. Now depending on the lever of country that you want to go to try this. I take a cheap white straw cowboy hat and using the wholes in the side I attach a bow in the same fabric. Then I attach this to the top of the tree. This takes the country theme to a whole new level.

    Hope that you get some good ideas from this and know that no matter your theme you can make it easy with just a little thinking….OH my favorite hint!…Try hitting your local Hobby Lobby and Michael’s stores the day that they open after christmas so that you can get the things that you know you will need for next year at a fraction of the price!

    I love the idea having the trees throughout the house and even more decorating idea according to what the room is used for great! One question under what tree would I put the gifts..the one in the family room or in my grand living? I even like the idea of a real pine in the grand living and my fake pine in my family room. I just look it ladies you have truly made things alot easier for me.
