My Candy Cane Tree


I call this my candy cane tree. All done up in red and white. I just finished decorating it.

It can be seen from inside and outside on the back patio, which is nice. It sits next to my little pantry in my small dining area.

If it's warm enough some days to sit out under the gazebo and have morning coffee or afternoon iced tea, I can enjoy it out there too.


Do you recall my buying this red beverage holder at the antique mall last spring? I had my asparagus fern in it during the summer.

Well, seems it also serves perfectly holding my little Christmas tree!


I didn't realize I would end up going with a "theme" until I was well underway in decorating this tree. It just kind of happened.


And because I love the combination of red and white so much, I decided it was a perfect theme for me.

  1. It is so cute Brenda and I love the big tub! I just put up my tree but it needs decorations which I will do later. No theme for me, just my memories as I bring out ornaments from over the years! I think a nice cup of coffee and a cookie while I decorate will be fun!

  5. Love your Candy Cane tree and its red container. I do several theme trees each year, but i feel myself slowing down as I grow older (77).I haven't even started this year so don't know how much I will get done. Your blog is one of my favorites.

  6. Ahhhhh soooooo cute!! Love it!! I like that you can also enjoy it from outside - my tree is the same, although our weather has definitely not been conducive for me to sit out on my deck!

  9. Love the red and white decorations! Nothing speaks Christmas, to me, like red and white and stripes! I love the tub in red that holds the tree. Last year, we had a new kitten, and needed a stand for our artificial tree that would hold up to her climbing up the stem of the tree! We poked around in our garage, and came up with using our patio table umbrella stand made of (very) heavy cast iron. The hole where you would put the umbrella was perfect for the tree, and no more tipping over! Maybe I'll get my decorating mojo one of these days......

  15. I love it, Brenda! I love a color coordinated tree (which mine is NOT) and I think yours fits in perfectly in that spot.

  16. This is so much fun, I really love that great tub you have your tree in! I like your one-a-day decorating plan, it makes sure you get it done!

  17. Brenda that tree is so pretty! It has just the right amount of decorations. I also love seeing the labels on the items in your pantry, the checked curtains, and all of the colored glass outside. You have given yourself many pleasant spots to gaze upon! I've never had a themed tree, and maybe I will give it a try. It looks fun. Thanks for the inspiration.

  20. I love the peppermint tree! Now you just need a little diffuser with some peppermint essential oil to use during the day (could keep you up at night) to go with the theme!

  27. Love that you "contained" your tree this year, too! I especially like that the container is on a stand. So cute!!!

  28. Brenda, I love all the peppermint and red and white look to your tree! And your container is perfect for it. I bought a Christmas Tree Collar for our tree that was on a fantastic sale, BUT our tree was already up and decorated and I was informed we'll wait and use it next year. Some day we'll eventually get a smaller tree in place of our big one.

  29. Looks beautiful Brenda!! I'm jealous because I can't put a tree up this year. We are in the middle of selling out house and no reason to get it all out to have to put it back up. We will celebrate Christmas at my daughter's house this year. Maybe I'm not jealous.. haha I won't have to clean up for everyone to come over to our house. haha Have a great day!!!
