Tree Tops

I spent the past weekend in Asheville where I toured once again the stunning Biltmore Estate. We did a bit of shopping too, of course! I was very taken with the lovely Christmas trees in all of the stores. Especially the way they had decorated the tops of the trees. Luckily I had my camera handy and took a few shots.

This tree was done in all gold and green. Very pretty and soothing.

An abundance of greenery was used around the top of the tree.

This whimsical delight was a fun sight indeed! Look at the Santa belt around the middle of it. Everything was over sized and fun. I loved the over sized Christmas lights stuffed into the top of this tree. Fun!

This one was all golds and reds and very elegant. The top almost looked like a show girls head dress! Isn't it stunning though?

All of the trees had some of the most beautiful ornaments on them.

Frosted glass in lovely colors.

I loved these tall deer. These were in gold but they had them in red, green and silver as well.

Red crystal drops.

A candy cane tree.

Wrapped with a Christmas ribbon.

This tree top held a wooden toy soldier. In fact the tree held many toy soldiers.

Golds and whites. So pretty!

White feathers and reds.

Some more of the pretty ornaments.

A more rustic tree with berries.

Berries and ribbons fill the top of this tree.

When will you put up your tree this season? If you are like me I try to get it done the weekend after Thanksgiving. I am happy to have viewed all these trees. I always struggle with my tree top. This has given me some great ideas! I hope it has given you some ideas as well!

    Thanks for giving me some decorating inspiration!

  4. Beautiful trees and toppers. I'll do my candy cane tree again this year...my kiddies seem to like it. I will start Thanksgiving weekend, but the tree is usually last. I have a Dept.56 village that goes up first. Now I'm thinking about it and wanting to get started. Thanks for the tree tour.
