Like fragrant petals sprinkling the path, warm recollections add beauty to a walk down memory lane. This Christmas tree’s palette of blush, gold, and ivory establishes a welcoming ambiance for the holiday’s opportunity to reflect on enchanting traditions and inspiring moments shared with loved ones over the years.

Find more rosy Christmas inspiration and indulge in overwhelming beauty at our holiday fête, “Honoring a Decade of Bliss,” which was set to celebrate the ten-year anniversary of Victoria’s return to print.
I fondly remember when Victoria magazine had a “centerfold” every December that featured a glorious tree done up in such a way that no one could forget. They were a highlight of those issues, but were discontinued. I miss them, and hope that it is something that can be reinstated for 2019 and beyond.
Years ago Denver had the festival of trees. I was one of thousands who paid to see the lush “themed trees” that were then auctioned off to benefit charities a few weeks before Christmas. I loved the creativity of themed trees. Hope Victoria Magazine can feature one all decorated in angles some day…and other themes. (I dont know why they dont do it any longer but would love to know if any other cities still do it).
