Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved to decorate for Christmas. Now that I have a home of my own, I’m thrilled to recreate the magic of my younger years for my own family. And for me, that means trees. Lots of trees.
My husband says that I have a problem. My response is: it’s only six Christmas trees… what’s the problem?!
At my house, each room has a Christmas theme. The living room boasts a white, gold and crystal tree based on one I fell in love with at the world-renowned Longwood Gardens’ Christmas display when I was just 16 years old. The dining room tree is covered in vintage toys. The kitchen tree sports cookie cutters, gingerbread men and even wooden spoons (and yes, I have a tree in my kitchen). There’s a sports memorabilia tree in the workout room and an equestrian themed tree in the foyer.
But, the tree that eclipses all of the others is the all mercury glass tree in the den. This 8’ tall fragrant pine is groaning under the weight of hundreds of beautiful mercury glass ornaments collected through the years. Sparkling ice cream cones jostle against toy drums, smiling snowmen cozy up to playful kittens, and of course, there are Santas… dozens and dozens of Santas.
This year my tree will be adorned with a brand new Poinsettia Santa ornament by Reed & Barton! Long one of my favorite brands for distinctive and beautiful ornaments, Reed & Barton has surpassed itself this year with the cheerful, Swarovski crystal studded, St. Nick, pictured.

Each ornament if signed by the artist and elegantly packaged for gift-giving and storage.
