The White House Christmas tree, also known as the Blue Room Christmas Tree is the official indoor Christmas tree at the White House. The first indoor tree was installed someone in the 19th century and since 1961, the tree has had a themed motif, at the discretion of the First Lady. The tree, which is selected from various growers nationwide, has been provided by growers in North Carolina 11 times, more than any other state. Go one which ya bad self Tar Heel tree growers!

I have always been mesmerized by the magic of Biltmore at Christmas time. All of the decorations are so lovely and amazing. It is hard to find proper words to describe the towering trees at Biltmore House. The scale of everything is so grand. Since George Vanderbilt moved into Biltmore House in 1895, the Banquet Hall has served as the focal point for Christmas celebrations at Biltmore House. If you haven't been, it is a real treat for the entire family, and it is just a two hour drive from Charlotte. Click here for information on visiting Biltmore House at Christmas through January 1.

And just a few more I think are pretty...
|In an otherwise lovely traditional interior, this tree throws|
in a little glam with aqua and metallic matched to the decor.
Ironically enough, the next image was a lovely bar cart stocked with tasty looking little holiday cocktails. Um... yes please!
And check out the pheasant feathers on this beaut. Isn't this SO creative?
|So Stylish and Original|
My mother informed me that my Great Grandparents also had a totally unique Christmas tree, one completely smathered with white Ivory flakes, creating the look of a lush powdery snow. Here's a totally gorg all white tree belonging to local Charlotte designer Holly Phillips of The English Room. I want this NOW!
Of course, I had to Google Ivory Snow Flake Christmas tree, and HERE is what I found. This Blogger was also compelled to try it for herself. Isn't it lovely? Click on the link to see the step by step guide to making a "Glowy and Snowy Flocked Tree". So Heavenly...
And to top it all off...
|A little bit of modern glam using an urn as the base and a disco ball|
hanging from the ceiling in lieu of a traditional tree topper. Love this!
As if a disco ball could be any more fun and festive than it already is! I think I'll have to do this with mine!
Here's a beautiful bow used for a tree topper custom made by Black Lion here in the Queen City.
Last, but not least, I thought I'd share with you a gift that keeps on giving! Here's one way to put those empty wine bottles to good use. Maybe I'll start saving all of those bottles of wine given as gifts and one day have my very own wine bottle tree. I mean, in all seriousness, how pretty is this tree?!...
I'm ready for Christmas. Are you?
For the love of fabulous holiday style, Whitley
