It is the end of November and Christmas trees are everywhere. I walk along the shop windows with great pleasure.
There are so many different themes. Although the white Christmas trees are important, still the traditional Christmas colours like red, silver and gold are hot. In case you don’t like watching shop windows I have made a series of pictures of all the different Christmas trees I came about. They give me a lot of inspiration.
I finally purchased white snowy Christmas trees. However they will have to stay in the barn for a couple of weeks. Because in Holland traditionally, the Christmas tree is not allowed “in house” until after the Dutch Sinterklaas party (December 5th)
Nowadays we are building up to the Sinterklaas party. We eat ‘pepernoten’ (Pepernoten is a Dutch treat only used at Sinterklaas) and prepare the presents and the poems that go with it.
So first “pepernoten” and after that it’s time for the Christmas baubles! Only then I will reveal my Christmas trees.
Simple theme, white light and cotton.
A little odd, Delfts blue theme.
Traditionally, I like the popcorn tinsel.
My favorite tree, exuberantly decorated in one colour.
What about this tree. Is it too much?
Lovely Christmas bauble.
This one is for the cup cake bakers among us.
Gold and red theme, with a twist.
Gold always right.
I would not buy this mouse, but for children....
Think about that, whilst decorating your tree.
You have to wait until I reveal my Christmas tree.
First the Sinterklaas presents and we have to eat some 'pepernoten'
Thanks for hosting
