I’m a big fan of Christmas trees that reflect the owner’s personality and lifestyle. And although, as a mom of five kids 15 and under, right now that means our tree is covered with popsicle-stick reindeer and classroom photo ornaments, I dream one day of having a themed tree in some undisturbed corner of the house where I can show off my own interests and style.
What better way to show off your passion for gardening than by setting up a garden-themed Christmas tree?
There’s still time to add some garden accents to your tree this year…or wait until December 26, scour the clearance sales, and plan a whole garden-themed tree for next year. Here’s some inspiration and helpful links to get you started!
Counterclockwise from upper right:
- Blogger Linda Brazill of Each Little World refers to her garden-themed tree as “My paean to the garden.” The miniature, 33-inch tree has a rustic feeling with its small wicker baskets, straw ornaments, clay pots, hats and miniature tools.
- This adorable dangling glove, pot and spade ornament from ornamentshop.com can be personalized with a name. $9.95
- Check out Burpee’s line of hand-crafted, hand-painted Polish veggie ornaments. First on my list? The 5-inch carrot, which looks incredibly lifelike and is believed to bring good luck to the kitchen in German legend. Also available at Burpee: onion, eggplant, red pepper and more. From $8.95.
- The perfect accent for a miniature tree, Plow & Hearth’s diminutive hand-blown glass boots and watering can ornaments are priced at $16.95 each.
- Crate & Barrel’s too-cute-for-words red, green, and white birdhouse ornaments are made of powder-coated iron. Best yet, right now the set of three is on sale for $6.20!
