The Beach Tree

If you've been following for awhile now, then you already know that I am crazy for Christmas. It is by far my most favorite time of the year. I've loved it since I was a kid and the love has grown over the years. When I became an adult, I started collecting ornaments and Christmas trees. I knew that one day I'd have the room to display all of them. I set out just buying ornaments that I really liked. Then I decided I wanted a candy tree. So I collected those ornaments, then I wanted a beach theme tree and then a movie theme tree. With every theme that was chosen, I would search out the ornaments and have so much joy getting them. Each tree is a labor of love. A love of the theme and a love of Christmas!

This is my beach theme tree...
I started this tree last year and I spent a few months leading up to Christmas searching for the ornaments. I found some after last year so there is quite a few new ornaments on there for this year.
First we have the tree topper. It's a light house. I found this little gem in a Christmas store in Pigeon Forge last year when I was visiting my mom. It's actually a figurine for a Christmas Beach village. However the lighthouse was hollow so I put it right down on the tree.

I've got three extra set of lights on this tree. One set is the hula girls dancing. The second set is the flamingos and the third is seashells.
Anyone need some clams? Or how about a Santa scuba diving?

Scuba Santa found a treasure all right. He found one full of Christmas bells and telling everyone to have a Cool Yule!

Then there's the glass octopus. I got this ornament in Sacramento and the famous Dorthea's in Folsom. I thought the price tag said $12.00. Too bad it was $22.00. He's got a good home though!

This one was a new addition. I got the swordfish this year. I was strolling around Khols with Beezy's mom and stumbled upon this beauty! I also found a palm tree that's new on the tree too.
Need a drink? There's three different little, fun drinks spread out on the tree. We've got this one, a martini and another fruit drink.

This ornament I got before I even had the idea of a beach tree. The Fabulous Annie who use to blog from Hawaii sent me this in a care package from Hawaii.
 Then we have the lobster. He spends his time searching for his lobster on the top of the tree.

This Santa is spending his time getting buried in the sand...

I have three different color star fish on tree. Here we've got white. I also have peach and green. They are spread out and add more color to the blue tree. I found these beauties last year and this year at Cost World Market. They didn't have white last year and this year they do! I saw it and knew I had to add them.

That's just a little bit of the ornaments on the beach tree.

OMG, I love this so much! I never thought to have more than one Christmas tree, but if you have the room for them, why not? And I love that they're each themed! I think I'm in love mostly with your beachy Santas :) Cute!

Have a great weekend!
