Can You See The Forest Through the Trees?

I have a passion for small, fake Christmas trees. 

They can be wrought iron...

...or not. 
I like to come up with a theme for each.

This is my newest mini-forest.
 The center tree has birds and and nests and birdhouses.

This tree has a nature / gardening theme.  Ornaments include pine cones, owls, mushrooms, a dragonfly and hummingbird, and lots of gardening implements including tools and a greenhouse. 

In the kitchen I have two small "cooking trees".

They are decorated with cookware, utensils, cookies, cupcakes, and other goodies.

Last but not least, this is another small bird tree.
It has sparkly white and silver birds which contrast with the red cardinals.  If you look closely you can see a bird's nest near the top.

They're all lovely. I like the idea of multiple smaller trees, but I don't think my husband (or my house, for that matter!) is ready for them yet.

You must start decorating early to get all your lovely displays out! Again, so gorgeous! Love the bird ones! Hugs!

I love your trees, but by far my favorite is the wrought iron one! I can imagine Halloween ornaments coming off it as well as the Christmas ornaments.
