Snowberry cardinals and red plaid Christmas tree - this tree is gorgeous!

Well, technically a flock of cardinals have taken roost in my Christmas tree but I don’t know any songs about cardinals.

My living room tree is all about family ornaments we’ve collected over the years so that means I can do whatever my little heart desires on my dining room tree and this year I’m going with a bird theme (not the Tippy Hedron type birds).

You know I have collecting issues so while one red cardinal ornament is good, a flock of red cardinal ornaments is even better in my book.

The best part is they clip right onto the branches and they’re shatter resistant but look like glass so I won’t have to worry if my new puppy Sushi knocks over the tree!

Make a DIY lighted Christmas snow village - love it in the old wagon!

While the birds are chirping in the treetops, a little snow covered village complete with a red church and blue glittered house is nestled under the tree in a vintage wagon.  A blanket of snow glimmers thanks to these very cool ultra slim wire lights that I just tucked beneath the snow.  I love that they are battery operated – no ugly cords to get in the way – and they can be set to blink on and off or a steady glow.  The wires are so thin that they are almost invisible – perfect for wrapping around branches or nestling inside glass jars.

Why stop at lights on the tree?

My birdhouse gets the royal treatment with battery operated LED globe lights.  I love the vintage inspired shape of the bulbs that are set to stay on for six hours then turn themselves off then on again the next day.

  1. I love cardinals. When my father died and we were at the cemetery, there was 12 inches of snow on the ground. A cardinal swooped down over his open grave and landed on my grandfather’s grave stone. My dad always fed sunflower seeds to the cardinals and when I see one, I feel like he is watching over me. I have several ornamental ones that I keep out all year and more on the Christmas tree. Thanks for posting. I love the wagon with the snow in it and will try that as well this year.

  2. Love that you have a traditional Christmas tree. It’s gorgeous with the flock of cardinals. Love that wagon and bird house too. Very pretty , Kelly! Happy Thanksgiving!

    As always, you blow me away with your creative mind! Love the idea of the lights with timers on them. Ordering right now for some areas that I don’t want to have to worry about and that aren’t near plugs. Problem solved! : ) Beautiful tree with a great sentimental feel. Thanks for sharing.
