Christmas decorating is easy with cone shaped trees. I now have three sets, but it all began with these beautiful red mirrored cone shaped Christmas trees bought one fun filled day shopping in downtown Blowing Rock, NC. The purpose of the trip was to pick our daughter up from college for the holidays and my husband and I were killing a little time waiting for her to get out of class. The story now goes that we found so many great things that we almost could not get all the things she wanted to bring home into the car. Blowing Rock will do that to you.
We started with these. Which have graced my dining table, buffet, and foyer table at one time or another.
I later added these which I guess began a collection. Oh my.
My bright red mirrored cone shaped trees are my favorites. Of Course! They are amazing!
The funky little modern shop where we bought them had a great remix tape playing that we bought too. Merry Mixmas is so fun, taking the classics we know and love, and mixing them with a brand new beat. (affiliate link, just so you know)
Here are a few of the ways we have styled out faves through the Christmas Holidays.
I love mixing these red cone shaped trees with my glass mercury balls. They are from Pottery Barn a few years back and I bought three different sizes. I looked and they don’t have them this year. Bummer! If you find some they are great. I use mine throughout the year in various places.
This Rocking Santa is one of my favorite gifts I’ve given my husband for Christmas. He shakes his hips and dances to “Rock Around The Christmas Tree”. The Santa that is, not my husband. So much fun.
The little vintage plastic reindeer below were found at our local Habitat Restore. Check out this past post where I used these reindeer in snowy winter scenes.
The toy car and truck with christmas tree you see in the picture above was bought from the ladies at Vintageitis at one of the Chartreuse Barn Events.
I think these green cracked mirror looking cone shaped trees came next. If you are a regular reader then you know I love aqua, and this shade of green and aqua go great together.
I do change color themes from time to time and I rarely put things in the same place, just go with the flow. Sometimes I look back at pictures from Christmas past and think “that was cool”. I make me laugh. Here I used them in my den beside the tree I decorated in Lime and Aqua.
And here they graced the dinning table the year I decided to do a woodland color scheme with green, brown, and metalics. No red. It was hard really hard, but good, all peace and joy. You can check out the Woodland Theme Christmas tree here.
These little foil wrapped chocolates came from Switzerland. My husband spent a good part of a year working there and brought them home to us for Christmas. Little treasures! But don’t eat them!!
The last little set of cone shaped trees look like they have been spun from red and gold thread. They typically sit on my bedroom dresser and stand alone. Nothing else needed with the tiny sequins, beads and metalic gold threads for shine.
They made one apperance on the mantle on one occasssion and from the looks of these pictures it must have been a crazy hard Christmas without much time.
Looks like we threw them up there in two seconds which, hey, is what is great about them anyway. That is what we are talking about here…Christmas decorating made easy with cone shaped trees.
If you don’t have any, go get you some today. You’ll thank me later! – Marianne
