Matt and I went back and forth about whether or not to get a Christmas tree this year. With our kitchen renovation displacing multiple rooms in our house there really isn’t a big enough space to put a tree without being in the way of our construction site or reduced living space. Also, I can’t imagine adding one more thing to collect construction dust right now. So we decided to skip the big family tree and instead opted to get each kiddo their own mini tree to decorate and place in their rooms. It was a win-win for everyone!
No surprise, Caroline wanted her tree decked in glitter, all things pink and sweets!

The only request Thomas had for his tree was construction trucks so we got a little creative and turned a handful of his toy trucks into ornaments.

What a fantastic idea!! I love both of these trees!!
Thank you!!! I want to keep them up all year now. 🙂
Great idea o the mini trees!!! I just finished laying my new hardwood floors through out my condo and I will be gone the week before Christmas so I also opted out of a tree. The only ones that are sad are the cats that love to lay in the branches! HA HA!
hahaha. you need to get your kitties their own mini tree!
Those are adorable! At Christmastime, I always had a mini tree in my room growing up. Loved it so much that both of my girls have a small one in their rooms now too. Glad you could still keep it festive despite the house projects (which I’m so excited to see, by the way!). 🙂
gotta love the mini tree! I want to keep them up all year!
These are ADORABLE!! Love this idea x
