Flowering Christmas Tree

Flowering Christmas Tree

I created what I call, a “Flowering Christmas Tree” this year. I decided to use elements of nature to decorate my tree. I wanted it to be simply charming without a lot of traditional ornaments.

I placed Roses, Hydrangeas, Magnolias, Lilies, Ivy, Berries, Pinecones and Holly all around the tree. I wanted to design a full and colorful tree that looked pretty and natural.

I used various styles of birds in the tree and nestled them into the branches as if they flew there.

I found these wonderful bird cages that hold tea light candles. They were hangable and perfect for the tree this year! The cages were a pretty good size, but not to big. For safety reasons, I used faux tea light candles with five hour timers. They go on and off the same time everyday. What is really neat about them is when the Christmas string lights are off the tree still glows.

I put a rustic star at the top. It’s propped on the bow I made from wired burlap ribbon. The burlap ribbon has lace on the edges and gives the tree a lovely softness.

  1. Beautiful, elegant tree!! I am a Master Gardener and anything that uses flowers and nature always appeals to me. Gives me some good ideas for the future

  2. I just love this tree, LuAnn! I’ve done one similar, but for Autumn. We’ve been in Williamsburg, VA, for one week, to see the Grand Illumination and to gather with old and dear friends from my years living there, thus I haven’t responded to your previous posts, but I have checked them out and always enjoy all the lovely ideas you come up with. Hope you have a nice week-end. We have many house tours and events, living so near several states, and trying to juggle them so we don’t miss out on the ones that sound best is always difficult…..but who can complain about that dilemma? Hugs.

    • Hi Bobbi! How nice to visit with old friends, especially in such a pretty place as Williamburg. Enjoy your house tours! I haven’t been on a house tour in a long time. Thank you for your wonderful support and friendship. It followers like you that make blogging worth it! I hope you have a lovely and save stay in VA! Enjoy!
      Hugs back,
      LuAnn πŸ˜‰

  3. Lovely tree…what a great idea!! Of course I love the birdies as well…they are for sure going to have a wonderful Christmas.
    Please clue me in on where to find the timer tea lights. I use the regular timer candles everywhere possible, but cannot find tealights or votives with timers.
    Have a blessed Christmas and a wonderful season,
    J
