Let's welcome another winter season with fresh decorating ideas for the holidays. Here's a sampling of tree themes and ornaments that you can find in stores today!
Black Forest Lodge - Bring the timeless tradition of an Old World Christmas into your holiday home. Inspired by the Black Forest in Germany with its dense evergreen forests and picturesque villages, look for colorful birds, fuzzy bears, red-capped mushrooms, golden oak leaves and metallic acorns that peak out from under dark-green, pine boughs. This tree simply sparkles with an old fashioned St. Nick in his long, red robe, forest birds and red-capped mushrooms, delicate, vintage glass ornaments in burnished golds & reds and the sparkle of twinkling lights.
Folklore - A child's dream! With bright colors and simple shapes, the Folklore tree is alive with the spirit of Christmas. Feel the Scandinavian vibe with playful gnomes in pointy hats, felted birds in a rainbow of colors and handmade birdhouses... handstitched fabric flowers, blond wood foxes, big-eyed hoot owls and 'Wish Upon a Stars' are tucked among the branches. Cozy up to this magical tree with a hot chocolate and 'Pepparkakor' or Swedish ginger cookies.
Market Square Christmas - Home for the holidays in Lake Forest. A little bit formal, a little bit traditional... and filled with memories. A Market Square Christmas dresses for the holiday season in reds, greens and whites with gas lamp ornaments, golden reindeer, amaryllis blooms and plaids. This classic tree exudes the charm of a well-tended garden with snow-covered cabbages and pinecones, red winterberries, cardinals and luminous pearls.
Be Good for Goodness Sake! - Santa is coming to town! If you love the 'Jolly One', this tree is for you... Just like Santa's workshop, this tree is busy with every kind of Santa and elf ornament. Look for red robed Santas, wood Santas, sparkling glass Santas, and even Santas in cozy, ski sweaters, And, don't forget his team of frolicking elves and red-nosed gnomes. Santa knows if you have been naughty or nice this year?
In addition to the ornament themes listed above, look for the following trees below.
Lake Forest Triangle Park - This tree's theme evokes the tranquil qualities of a little park tucked away in Lake Forest... a small bronze deer placed in front of the pine trees. It celebrates the winter traditions of a neighborhood park with ice skating, sleigh rides and quiet walks in the snow.
Peppermint Kitchen - Imagine Santa as a pastry chef with his pink cheeks rosy from baking. Look for sweet, little ornaments inspired by gingerbread houses with white icing, red & white peppermint candy canes, and don't forget the popcorn garland...and everything's tied up with red and white baker's twine!
Homespun Holidays - There is nothing like homemade for the holidays! This smaller tree gives us that 'little bit country' feeling with popcorn and marshmallows garland, handmade ornaments and chalkboard items. Sweet and simple...
