An Old-Fashioned Christmas Tree

The tree is up and this year’s is the largest one yet…

Measuring over eleven feet to the top this towering conifer was given a further height boost being placed atop an antique chest.


The soaring windows and ceilings in the loft called for a tall specimen and this one fits the bill, reaching to the sails of the vintage pond boat mounted high on the wall beside it.

In contrast with the more natural shape of last year’s unshorn spruce this one was selected from another local grower who pruned it so perfectly it almost looks to good to be real.

All the Victorian art and architecture that inspired us this year also influenced this over the top Christmas tree theme that mixes a profusion of antique and vintage glass ornaments with paper ones crafted from Victorian scraps embellished with wired tinsel trims.

The finishing touch is of course thousands of tinsel icicles coating the boughs with a frosty winter shimmer. Even the red silk bows are edged in feathery tinsel trim.

A candy cane color scheme of white, reds, and pinks with contrasting touches of wintergreen completes the sugary iced effect.

Hope you’ve enjoyed our old-fashioned Christmas tree and wishing a very happy holiday season to all!
