Christmas Trees of the Past from the Annual Christmas Trees on Parade!

Every year I host a blog party called Christmas Trees on Parade.  This year's event will be held on December 2 and along with it, each blogger is giving away a very special ornament!  If you are a blogger and want to get in on the fun, just email me at

Last year's participants were:

T’onna at Sew Crafty Crochet

Lauren at Mom Home Guide

Linda at A Labour of Life

Charlene at Enduring All Things

Nicole at Always Reiding

Shana at Our Sutton Place

Nicole at 4 the Love of Food

Some believe that the Christmas tree is the most important part of your Christmas decor. While it certainly ranks high on my list, I know that others believe that their nativity sets or general holiday decor set the stage as well.  

I first started Christmas Trees on Parade in 2016.  I chose to feature the Silver Beach Tree.  This tree is located in our guest room and features two sets of family collectibles: silver bells and the Hallmark 12 Days of Christmas acrylic ornaments.

In 2017 we featured our living room tree, which is the tree that has all our family ornaments on it.  The oldest ornaments on the tree are from around the early 1950s.  My grandmother crocheted ornaments for trees one year and when she passed, all of us grandkids were able to have a few.  It's a special tree to everyone in our family.

2018's tree is the same one, but a new look!  This year we did it up in plaids, which is my all-time favorite Christmas fabric.  I can't get enough and feature different ones all through the house.

Our tree featured in 2019 was the silver coastal tree once again. We repeated this tree as it became very important to our daughter when her home and all her belongings were destroyed by fire.  She needed some normalcy in her life and seeing this tree helped her cope with the tragic events.

We switched it up completely in 2020 with a feature of a wire Christmas tree we have in our loft.  We decorated it with buffalo plaid and camping ornaments and it was so fun to do. We have a teardrop camper and our friends have gifted us with cute ornaments for the tree and we couldn't wait to share them with you!

That's the list of trees that have been featured over the last five years on Christmas Tree Lane's Christmas Trees on Parade!  If you would like to join us, send me an email or leave a comment here on how I can get in touch with you.  This year's tree is a brand new one!  I'll give you a hint: we took a trip to Mexico in November and I am going to feature a special set of ornaments!
