My post on holiday decorating is considerably shorter than Bee’s! (Decorating has never been my strong suit; I generally aim for minimalism, which mostly involves cleaning and getting rid of things.)
So without further ado, I present you with our tree! I think it’s pretty much the cutest thing ever. I’d been scouring the Goodwill and eBay for a vintage ceramic tree when my mom offered to let me use my grandmother’s.
Next year, Nathan and I are planning on stepping it up a lot with a Pacific Northwest native tree from Swanson’s Nursery. Swanson’s will tell you how to keep your tree healthy, and after the festivities are done, you can either keep the tree or – OR!! – donate it to the Trees for Salmon program and have it planted in the ground. There are some other ways to help out, so check out this link if you want more info: Trees for Salmon program.
Does anyone know of good tree options for non-Seattleites? I hope your holidays are shaping up festively!
