I call this my candy cane tree. It’s 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.
Well, it seems it also serves as a perfect container to hold my little candy cane Christmas tree.
I didn’t realize I would end up going with a “theme” for my tree until I was well underway in decorating. It just kind of happened.
That’s how I do much of my decorating. I just start and somehow it evolves.
Because I love the combination of red and white so much, I decided it was a perfect color theme for my tree.
I decorated the tree with red and white candy canes and a variety of red and white ornaments.
I tied the ornaments on the tree branches with jute. I’d rather tie them on than use ornament hooks from the store. First, they stay on better. And second, I think it looks better.
I love the way the tree lights glows at night. I also love the way it is reflected in the patio glass door. And the way the colored bottles outside can be seen as well.
I consider my patio space also living space. I like to enjoy my decorating from both inside and outside. I can do that with my candy cane Christmas tree up against the patio doors.
