A Tree for All Seasons

I'm doing it. Yes. I. Am. I am going to be that weird neighbor lady who doesn't take her Christmas tree down. Ever. For years I have wanted to decorate my Christmas tree for each season and this is the year I am going to throw caution to the wind and leave up my living room tree (the smaller of the two that we decorated this year). Here's the decor schedule for our tree:

January/February- Valentines Day
March/April- Easter
May/June/July- Memorial Day/4th of July
August/September- Back to School
October/November- Fall/Thanksgiving
December- Christmas

I will be photographing each theme and posting them here. I would love to hear your ideas for themed trees...or if you've ever done this before send me ideas for ornaments.

Now, the hunt begins for pretty valentine ornaments!

Inspiring! So.....then I could just leave the tree UP??? : ) My sister in law did this, actually, and her daughter loved it. It was a lot of fun for them. Blessings!

You are well on your way to being THE crazy bird lady :)

You could have the kids trace their hands and make them into hearts! Such a fun idea...our living room looks empty without the tree. I may just take that idea for next year!

Love the idea! We really considered it after lighting fiasco we had with our 10 year old tree this year.So much work to get it looking good--hated to take it down... Can't wait to see the pics!
