Helen’s Adventure In Christmas Tree Sizes

Beautiful, but too small for room with a high ceiling!

Merry Christmas, Y’all!


This year Bob and I decided that we had had enough fun with our tall tree!  Why, you’re wondering!  Simply because it is a pain to set up and old.  We vacillate liking it in the formal living room some years and other times we want it in the relaxed family room.  OK, I’ve about made my mind up that next year, (if not at a great sale next week) we’ll purchase one for the family room to be the main family tree.  
(REMEMBER:  DOUBLE CLICK THE PHOTOS TO ENLARGE, PLEASE!)
There’s not one thing wrong with the new smaller trees in our other rooms, but this room cries out for a tall tree.  When I first saw the photos, I thought that I cannot post those.  Well, I thought again and thought sure I can do it!  This sweet little tree from Target this season would look great in just about any other room in the house.  Just not this vaulted ceiling rom…., but for this one year we will pretend it is perfect.  Time is timing out as they say!  

Red orbs from Ross Dress For Less


Still wondering why I would post it.  Someone reading will get their vision of what a much smaller one would look like in their room with a tall, tall ceiling.  

Snowflakes from Big Lots


So, at this point I  will enjoy its beautiful cashmere greenery and appreciate the Madame Alexander Doll Angel, that won’t sit atop the tree.  It’s too heavy for the treetop!  The red orbs are from Ross Dress For Less and the snowflakes are from Big Lots.  I’m thrilled with all of the decorations.  Fortunately, I believe they will really help with that new tall tree next Christmas.

  1. Always remember “good things come in small packages” Even the little trees make us all smile! :)

  2. Hi Helen! Thanks so much for commenting on my blog! We buy real trees and every year they get smaller and smaller. This year I was determined to get one at least 7-8 feet tall. Nope, we got a six footer! Small trees are cute, but I agree that the tree looks better when it matches the scale of the room. LOVE those snowflakes–I wonder if Big Lots still has them!

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    • Hi Elaine! You’re welcome…it was my pleasure to visit your blog. I’m glad you understand my thoughts on the trees and the scale of the room. Maybe your Big Lots still has the snowflakes….they are excellent and the glitter doesn’t seem to shed!! Hope you can find them…they are very reasonably priced in all the sizes. Glad you are following me! Thanks and Merry Christmas!

  3. I love little trees…so easy and fun to decorate! Wishing a very merry Christmas and the happiest of holiday seasons to you and yours!…hugs…Debbie

    • Debbie, they are fun for sure. Thanks for the wishes…it was great and our family is here…the fun goes on! Love having the house filled with the grands’laughter and chatter. Happy New Year, Helen

  4. Merry Christmas, Helen! Hope you had a wonderful one.

  5. Thank you for stopping by my blog & for the sweet comment on my rescued tree :)

  6. Hi Helen! Thanks for the Christmas wishes! We had so much fun. I’m SO behind on this whole blogging thing, though. I’m still trying to return all the emails and comments. So sorry it’s taken me this long to come by!!

    I LOVE your little tree! It’s so festive and perfect! I like trees of all shapes and sizes and I’m sure it looked great in your house. :)

    • Emily, I’m with you on being behind on the blogging thing. No problem with your timing. Glad to hear you had so much fun. Target “grew” my little trees this year. Thanks for dropping by Happy New Year! Helen

  7. I can imagine how you feel about that little tree in such a big room. When my husband and I get older, we will probably switch to a nice tabletop tree. The large one is a bear to get out and set-up! Ha! At least you don’t have to struggle to take your decorations down this year though.

    • Hi Kelly, thanks for your compliment. It is a pretty tree…just not right for that large room with the vaulted ceiling. Next year, we’re already planning to have a tall one! Now, we have 4 small ones to get stored for the spaces they will fill next Christmas. I visited your blog and loved it. Thanks again for dropping by. Helen

  8. Helen, Happy New Year!
    I love little trees and yours looks beautiful. I think it won’t be long before my tree turns into a smaller one.
    I have been putting away Christmas decor for a week now. Finally finished yesterday. WOW! I am just glad is over. So much work! LOL

    • Thanks, Maria! Hope you have a great New Year! We ended up with 4 small trees and they all have to be packed up. We’ll have a large one next year and the small ones. I know the work is worth it. Isn’t it!! Yeah!

  9. Hi Helen,
    I think your small trees were decorated beautifully. Leo and I went with 2 tabletop trees this year. Our house is small, so they fit better without taking up valuable floor space. I think the idea of several small trees is more interesting. You could decorate each one with a different theme.

    • Thanks, Jane! Bob and I really enjoyed all 4 of the small trees we bought. The one on our porch came fully decorated and with the lights. All I had to do was bend the branches a little to make it look right. Also, the ornaments needed adjustments, but that was super easy, too.

  10. Helen, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and the New Year is starting out great for you!! Thanks so much for adding me to your sidebar! You’re a sweetheat!
    Debbie

    • Debbie, Christmas was wonderful! Thanks for being a great blogger. I know you have helped me the past few months. Thanks again for your kindness!

  11. Hi Helen! I love little trees too. We don’t buy live trees anymore but I do have a few little ones that I use sometimes, although this year I didn’t!
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉
