When I was just out of college and had my first apartment with a place for a tree, I remember admiring department store trees while Christmas shopping. They were always so decked out and filled with gorgeous ornaments. Dream Christmas trees for sure!
For me, “dream tree” means a full, tall, and beautifully decorated tree. It should have a thoughtful design and a color scheme that coordinates with its space. Most importantly, it should be visually stimulating.
Creating a beautiful Christmas tree is always my goal. Based on the messages I receive, it seems many of you share this goal. Each Christmas, I also receive numerous requests for tree sources. For your convenience, I’ve gathered sources and shared quantities to help you recreate some of my most popular trees.

Tree 1 – White, Champagne, Blue
This was my first tree that I felt lived up to the “dream tree” description.
It is a full profile tree. At almost 60″ wide, it makes a grand statement. It is also tall, 9′ to be exact.
To get the look, I started by adding the picks, then the poinsettias and magnolias. Poinsettias or magnolias or both make an appearance on all of my trees. I love both!
Next, I add ornaments, large to small.
Lastly, I add ribbon. For a more detailed description of how I decorate my trees, read Tree Decorating – Step by Step.
