Creations, Red, White & Beach Tree

Do you celebrate Flag Day and the 4th of July?

I decided it would be fun to have a red white and blue tree for the summer holidays and was doubly inspired by some of my favorite blogging friends who are having a Patriotic Friday with Tree Classics Blog Hop.  Be sure to see Jen Lutz’s tree here, Shirley’s tree at Houspitality Designs here, and I’m looking forward to trees by Stacey at Poofing the Pillows on June 15, and Mary from Home is Where the Boat is on June 22

 

 

HH & I have really enjoyed a pencil tree we bought for the beach house

It is pre-lit, tall and skinny,  doesn’t take up much space, and fits perfectly between the 2 sets of French doors to the porch

We enjoyed it for Christmas, with aqua ornaments and beachy things, for a Coastal Christmas Tree

 

 

Then in January it transformed into more of a winter tree with snowflakes

 

 

In February it changed completely for Valentine’s Day & Mardi Gras,  “half and half” tree,  since the holidays fell right next to each other on the calendar

One side decorated with pink and red, hearts and ornaments

 

 

Mardi Gras masks, beads, and ornaments on the other side

 

 

 

Then it turned into an Easter Egg Tree

 

 

 

“So, what’s next, flags?” HH asked

“Oh, that would be really cute for the summer holidays!” I exclaimed

“You know, I think it would…” he said

But it was only April and we were a little tired of it, so I put it away for a while…

Yesterday I had planned to go shopping but it started storming so I looked at what was in my red, white and blue stash… the tree was floating around in the back of my mind, and I certainly didn’t think I had enough things to decorate the tall tree…

But I did!

 

 

 

I had burlap blue anchor ribbon and some red & white plaid

 

 

 

 

I had lots of small flags and Uncle Sam hat picks

 

 

 

 

Red white and blue bicycles and pails

 

 

 

 

Funky flag glasses

 

 

 

 

 

And a cute Lady Liberty statue that I bought this year

 

 

 

 

Stars and stripes bandanas cover the tree base

 

 

 

 

A beach boy Santa and surfer nut cracker are hanging out by the tree

 

 

 

 

Happy Flag Day!

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s a Red, White & Beach Tree!

    So cute! Love the blue and white anchor ribbon! Isn’t it fun decorating for the different holidays? I have a small tree that fits in the corner of my dinning room and the main theme is birds, but I do tuck in other items depending on the holiday. Today it will have small dollar store flags and they will stay until Labor say. Love your beach theme as well! Hmmm, that gives me an idea….maybe I should change it out to a beach tree in August! Thanks Jenna, I think I will! 🐚😉🏖

  9. Jenna, the space between your doors is perfect for this little skinny tree. I love the idea of a decorated summer tree and red, white and blue would be my first choice too. My favorite ornament is the suffer dude nut cracker. Have a wonderful Father’s Day weekend…….
