oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree


December 12, 2012 by Ellen V

We are throwing a little bash for Jane’s first birthday in a few days, and I’m starting to feel a little sad about not having a Christmas tree. Okay, I know birthday parties and Christmas trees don’t necessarily go together for most people, but I come from a family with lots and lots of Christmas birthdays, and I think homes should feel holiday-festive for all the events of the season! Plus, they smell good, you know?

When I inquired about a Christmas tree this year, Eric gently reminded me that 1) Jane’s not really a “be gentle with the Christmas tree” kind of girl and 2) we’re not going to be at home for Christmas anyway. Solid, practical points, which I agree with, at least in a logical way. But I grew up with giant, real trees in our living room, lights you could see out the window. I miss them when I don’t have them! So my solution is a lit tree on the wall. Do you think I could recreate this?

Jane couldn't do that much damage to this, right?

I’m sure we’ll have plenty of cheer (Christmas, birthday, and otherwise) with or without a tree. But a few strings of lights and a pine scented candle wouldn’t hurt!
