Now that we are into November, I’m starting to think about Christmas decor! Not to worry, we cherish Thanksgiving and all that it stands for. As a blogger though, I love to inspire my readers earlier in the season as they begin to prepare for the holidays. 

As most of you know, we gave our boys’ bedroom a makeover earlier this year. I just love how their space came together and the moment we finished it, I could already imagine it all decorated for Christmas! I plan on hanging greenery on their shelves, as well as adding a Christmas tree in the opposite corner of their bed.  

I went on Pinterest looking for inspiration for their Christmas tree, and today I thought I would round up all of the ideas I found for you here, in a blog post! 

I am working with my good friends over at Puleo International again this year. They sent me the 6.5 foot Pre-Lit Aspen Fir for the boy’s bedroom and I love it SO much! These trees look so realistic and they are so easy to assemble.

I also love the fact they are pre-lit so there is no wrestling with Christmas lights, and set up is so smooth with three separate sections that fit one on top of the other.

Isn’t this tree from Ella Claire & Co. so much fun?! I love all of the oversized vintage toys that Kristen used as ornaments. I also love the antique box she used for a tree base! My boys would love a tree like this – I might have to start hunting for some vintage toys!
