Begining of Holiday Decorating- Clearance Christmas Trees

Over the past week Mr. Front Porch has been out of the country. While he was away I guess you could say this mouse played. LOL. I have been very busy with multiple projects that all had to be complete for holiday decorating. The first was to bring out the trees. Right after Christmas last year I took advantage of online clearance deals and ordered two new trees.

This is a 7.5 ft which is very similar to my beloved Noblis Fir from Grandin Road so when I saw it on clearance for just $75 I had to have it. It took a little work to get it to stay up in the urn. The urn is just a planter I purchased from Walmart back in the summer. It is starting to get an aged chippy patina which is always a plus in my book.

This is my second clearance tree. It is a 4.5 ft tree. I am in love with it and wish I had purchased a few more of them. It was only $25. I love that it looks so real. The urn it is in is one that we purchased from SAMS Club over 10 years ago. I use it outside and bring it in during the holidays after I make sure all the critters are off of it.

Along with putting the trees up I also have been busy crafting some bows from red ticking stripe ribbon I found.

I also have been pulling together Christmas in the bedroom. I ended up putting the clearance 4.5 ft tree in here instead of leaving it in the dining room. I am not quite done with this space but I am loving how it is turning out.

Have you started decking the halls?

Be sure to check back in to see what else I have been up to over the past week.


  1. Great buy on those trees! I don't start until the day after Thanksgiving. I am looking for a tree for my bedroom too.

    1. I just love having a tree in the bedroom Penny.

  2. Charming! Lovely! The red ticking ribbon is ahhhhhhh! Thanks for all the photos.

  3. I love that 4.5 tree, Pamela. Was it also from Grandin Road? I would love to ditch my 7.5 tree for a smaller tree. I am trying to purge things, and going smaller would force me to do it. My daughter came over and took a tub full of things, but it didn't even make a dent in my stash. I need to just donate. It's the dealer in me that keeps me from doing that!

    1. Ha! I need to go thru all my stuff. I do not even use more than half of it and it is hard to justify buying new when I have bins of old sitting around. The clearance trees both were from Home Depot online last year. I could not believe the good deals they had. I will certainly be checking for them again this year. I need some new ones for the porches.


I love when ya stop by so leave me a comment if ya have some time! I always try and respond but sadly enough sometimes I am unable to return the love due to noreply blogger status.
