Last year, for the first time ever I set up the largest Christmas tree in our dining room. I did so again this year but used a white flocked tree. I decorated it with about 40 vintage red transferware teacups and a few creamers (I needed to fill a few more spots in!). In addition to the teacups I used a variety of collected red ornaments, garlands and ribbons.
I have a recurring theme of birds throughout my house and they've made it to my Christmas decor too. Some birds are tucked inside the transferware cups.
Some birds are clipped onto the tree branches.
This year, Grandma Judy sent Ashton home with a collection of bird ornaments she's saved for her, so we added them to the tree as well.
As you may also know, I love the color amber. I have several strings of amber colored lights. My favorites are glass bulbs in a pine cone shape.
Just like when I was a child, I still like laying on the floor and looking up at the Christmas tree.
“Somehow not only for Christmas but all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others Is the joy that comes back to you.
And the more you spend in blessing
The poor and lonely and sad, The more of your heart's possessing
Returns to you glad.”
