merry birthday Christmas tree


Do you celebrate any birthdays this month? We have four family birthdays in the weeks leading up to Christmas. They make the season more fun and definitely more full.

This year I decided to embrace the crazy birthday/Christmas combo and used confetti filled ornaments, velvet ribbon and bright candles to make a birthday Christmas tree. It’s the perfect piece to blend in with our Christmas decor and also look great next to a three tiered birthday cake!

PS. Save your clear ornaments, they make pretty party decor throughout the year. I imagine they’d be gorgeous hanging from a porch tree with flickering candlelight on a summer evening.

    Very sweet Victoria! September is our big birthday month and I find that hard enough. I don’t know how you manage Christmas as well! Stephie x

    How sweet-love these! We have a few December birthdays, and I love the idea of embracing them rather than trying to tie it into the other celebrations!

    I love this idea Victoria! It’s funny because I just wrote a post on my blog combining Christmas prep and my husband’s birthday. I know he has had some complaints over the years about having a birthday so close to Christmas. We give him his due, though. No combined celebrations, and no combined presents (unless he wants something big, like a new guitar)!
