When I first moved into my beach front home, there were only three of us living there. One has moved out by then and so this left two of us to figure out how to decorate the whole house. So, without any help from anyone else me and my wife did some research and came up with some great ideas.
First we decided on a tree with a white backdrop. We chose this because, even though my wife is a winter enthusiast, we really like the bright colors of the beach scene. We decided on a Douglas Fir tree with silver and white ribbon lights surrounding it. It was topped with a star spangled fir in the center. The tree was in my wife’s favorite color scheme, so she thought it was a great choice.
Second, I wanted a “Bigfoot” tree. I chose this one because it matched the decor in our home. I wasn’t going to spend money on this one, but I thought it might look nice. So, I brought it home, set it up and put some lighting around it.
Third, I decided to buy a couple of smaller BeachCrest holiday trees and put them together to make one big holiday decoration. I found these at a local craft store. They are called Twinkling Lights and they sparkle in the dark. It was really pretty to see all the different kinds of decorations being used on it.
Fourth, I made a gingerbread man and placed it on the door as the Christmas door decoration. This is a very popular centerpiece. It really added to the ambiance of the house. When people come in they can see what all the decorations are and smell the wonderful aroma that came from the little gingerbread man.
I love the way this BeachCrest Home Christmas tree looks. I think I will get more of these Holiday trees next year. There is just something about it that says home. And you know when you are at home you can hear the bells ringing. That’s what I like about it.
All the other decorations are great. My wife loves them too. She gets them all excited when we go to the beach for the holidays. And I get a nice feeling in my heart every time I see it standing on our front porch. It makes me feel like I’m bringing them home right along with my family.
If you are thinking about getting a BeachCrest Home Christmas Tree this year, get ready for a long day ahead. You will need a ton of tools. You will also need plenty of empty gift bags or boxes. I would also suggest ordering the small pine cones, along with all the other accessories that go with it. That way you will be sure to have enough decorations for your home.
When decorating your tree, try to stick with something you haven’t decorated before. I learned my lesson and got the BeachCrest tree that my husband painted. It turned out so well, we ordered another one to finish the job.
Let your imagination run wild with ideas for other decorations. You can do something unique by placing pine cones and other flowers around your home. Use this year’s colors to create a holiday scene. Or, maybe you decided to use the classic Christmas colors but switch it up with green and red or even white and silver. You have so many choices and it will be great fun adding all of your own creative touches to your tree.
This year, I am using our neighbors’ Christmas tree. It is beautiful and I am really enjoying it. The owners have spent a lot of money on the decorations, lights, and tree. They have put so much love and effort into their Holiday Tree. This year, they wanted to make it a little more personal by putting names on each of the twelve branches. I am sure everyone will appreciate this touch.
I also decided to give my tree a little treat this year. I received an extra long Christmas wreath last year and thought it was pretty awesome. I purchased enough to put in every window and on my table. I purchased a beach themed decorations and have fun stringing lights around the branches. It looks fantastic and everyone seems to love it.
