White Christmas Tree (My First Non Green Tree)

Thanksgiving is long gone...  My dinner went well...we ate turkey for 5 days and loved it! 

Now it's on to Christmas.

After Christmas last year I bought a white prelit tree to use with all of these felt pink/white ornaments that I made over two decades ago. 

I put the tree up a week ago and have been adding to it ever since.  I keep remembering more pink items that I have, so I go down to the basement and rummage around until I find what I remembered.

I really like the polka dot burlap that I also bought during the 50% off sales last year.

The only new ornaments I bought this year are some white owls.  You have to look closely to see them on the white tree.

Can you see all the little white and pink mice I stuck in the branches?  I love those guys.

 My Mom crocheted all of the white hearts and white hats (again hard to see on the white tree). I am amazed that they have stayed so white after all these years.

Those white lace hearts and pink flowers are from my wedding in 1989.
The tree is topped with an old world Santa -- in pink, of course. :)
I  used some extra ornaments to decorate some gifts under the tree.
I think I am finished tweaking, since I have filled nearly every branch tip available.  I am beginning to really like this tree!
I decided not to do my big 9.5 ft. tree that I usually do in the family room. It's just too much work to climb up/down the ladder to decorate it and then to take it all down. This little 6.5 ft. tree will be a snap to take down after Christmas.  Perhaps I will do the big one again next year.   
Is your holiday decorating done?


  1. That looks so great, Zoey. I really love your white Christmas tree and have been wrestling back and forth with getting one myself. I am not putting up my big 9.5 tree this year either. I am so far behind it isn't funny after being down for a couple of weeks. I am only going to do about half as much this year as I usually do. Your tree is beautiful and I love all handmade ornaments and the fact that some are tied to your Mom. xo Diana

    1. Thanks, Diana. Get one, I think you will love it!

  2. Oh Zoey....that tree is stunning! It should be featured in a magazine.
    Relax now....Balisha

  3. So pretty, Zoey, and so sentimental. Love it! No trinkets survived from my 1967 wedding but I do use angels and bird's nests from my son's marriage in 2000. I couldn't face hauling the big tree up either so bought one of those tall slim ones and just plugged it in. I might decorate it yet but I doubt it!

  4. I love your tree. This is the second year we have not put up a tree and I miss it. I think next year we will find a small tree to put up.

  5. Your tree is beautiful, Zoey! Love the ornaments that bring back special memories. We are through decorating, I think...One 7 foot tree and 3 miniature trees and a pretty mantel. Merry Christmas and thanks for showing us your gorgeous tree!

  6. Oh My Gosh, the is the sweetest tree I have ever seen. It is so calming with the pink and white.

    I love the fact it has memories on it, your Mom made some ornaments and your wedding stuff, how cool is that!

    Merry Christmas!

  7. Oh Zoey I just love your pink tree! So beautiful. You have a wonderful Christmas.

  8. I am blogging and blog hopping tonight, so leaving a few comments here and there. Lots of people aren't blogging anymore!
    Anyway, love the pink and white tree. It's so sweet, especially with the special items like the hats and hearts. Our main tree will come down this weekend. We took down outside decor and I took down my feather trees today. I think I will do my Victorian tree this year.
