Christmas Tree Extravaganza


If you're lacking Christmas Tree Decorating Inspiration have I got the House Tour
 for you!!!


The Chuchla Residence has Wowed the West Valley near Downtown Glendale for years now with his Christmas Tree Extravaganza House Tour.


It's yet another on our Light Display Traditional Family Pilgrimages each Holiday Season.


And if you think that Styling and Decorating a single Tree in your Home is a lot of work...


Just imagine Styling and Decorating well over 50 my Friends!!! *Whew!*


And transforming an entire room into a Magical Ice Cave!!!


And every other room of your Home into Christmas Magic and Enchantment worthy of a Disneyland Theme Park!!!


And he finds the coolest Trees ever... this Hippie Rainbow Tree was among my favorite Novelty Trees this year's visit! 


 It doesn't even need decorating, it simply IS a decoration unadorned! *Winks* 


 Though I possibly couldn't have resisted throwing 60's Inspired Ornamentation at it reminiscent of the rebellious Free Spirited Era of my Youth. *LOL*


The Trees in the Kitchen were adorned with Culinary Kitsch...


And every Colorful Christmas Tree ever made is represented in this Home in every imaginable hue...


And the Styling of the various Trees is so Creative and Imaginative.


And the Lifesized Statues of Toy Soldiers, Nutcrackers and the like are everywhere.


And as many Toys as you might imagine the North Pole of Santa's Toy Workshop as having!


And the adorable Fur Babies of this Christmas House are dressed in their finest Christmas attire and Welcome you as warmly as their Human Family do...


And so as we take you along with us on the Grand Tour I Hope you will enjoy it as much virtually as we did being there?


And not only enjoy the abundant eye candy, but perhaps get some Christmas Tree Inspiration for yourselves as well if you haven't yet decided on how you want your Tree to be Styled and Decorated?


Perhaps a Marine Inspired Tree?


Who knew that Fish, Turtles, Frogs and other Marine Creatures could look so stunning as a Christmas Tree Theme?


In fact this was Prince R's favorite Tree of the Evening... there was even a mechanical Santa Ornament reeling in a Fish on a line!


And I must say that the Colors of the Sea & Beach are quite a Lovely Palette that I've always enjoyed too.


Some Trees were more simple and Color specific but no less stunning...


And I had to get a shot of the Diningroom Chandie... Chandie Lover that I am! *Winks*


A Red Tree with Doves and Pearls was very eyecatching... up close and...


At a distance...


The Lavender Room resplendant with Vintage Aluminum Pom-Pom Tree... 


And Arctic Friends...


I could get lost in the details of each Styled Tree... so we went through twice just to get a closer look at the Ornamentation the 2nd time... 


Because the 1st time through the impact of the overall visuals tends to captivate you so much that the details can get a bit lost or overlooked initially...


And there will be things you failed to see the first time... and notice on subsequent visits...


As if seeing them for the first time...


My favorite Tree was the Tropical Paradise Inspired Bird Tree...


So Unique and different... so Creative...


Not your typical Christmas Tree Theme and yet...


The visual impact of such a unique Styling Vision was quite powerful and Beautiful.


And I might just steal... um... I mean borrow this wonderful Styling Idea for a subsequent year's Christmas Tree here at the Bohemian Valhalla Residence??? *Winks*


It just made me think of Bora Bora at Christmastime... it has that Tropical Island Vibe that I Dream about... and you know how that's #1 on my "Bucket List"! *Smiles*


And so Prince R photographed me in front of my fav Tree... with Visions of a future Christmas in Bora Bora dancing in my head now... *LOL*


And since I'm really 'into' Feathers this Season... hadda Love the Feather Trees! *Smiles*


And around the Pool outside in the back Garden there are Columns and Roman Inspired Statuaries along with the Trees and Christmas Decor.


And in the Garden Room there was an abundance of Heavenly Angels and a Waterfall...


Princess T adored the Angel Room... yes, the Beast Princess does also have an Angelic Side... *Winks*


Does that Nutcracker Guard look stunned at that statement??? *LOL*


No, really, doesn't this LOOK like the face of an Angel my Friends? *He he he*


Well, we really ALL FELT like we were in Christmas Tree Heaven here at the Chuchla Christmas House.


And I'm simply in awe of how much work and what a Labor of Love goes into the Styling and Decorating of this Home and Property every Christmas.


I mean seriously... I get exhausted just doing ONE Tree and the little bit of Styling that goes into mostly the interior Decor of this Ole House!


And for many, many years now David Chuchla has done up every room of his Home...


 The front yard...


 And back yard... with an amazing array of Christmas Wonderment & Splendor! 


And the most Imaginative Trees...


The Butterfly Tree was Princess T's favorite...


And the runner-up favorite of mine too... yeah, this could be another Theme I might steal... um... borrow... *Winks*


Are there any Ideas you might replicate this Season or in a future Season at your Homes now my Friends?


Hasn't this gotten you into the Christmas Spirit TOTALLY?!?


It really did it for us... as it always does... and why it's been a Christmas Light Display Tradition and Pilgrimage of ours for years now...


And I really Hope Mr. Chuchla never tires of this Lovely Gift he presents the Community with each year... 


I can see the Joy it brings to him each year as the Guests are Wowed by his efforts and hard work... and he dresses as one of Santa's Elves each year and is so humble about his Talents...


Quietly and unassumingly Welcoming you in... as he Hosts this Amazing Christmas Extravaganza.


That was Months in the making...


And trust me... you'll want to spend a considerable amount of time there yourselves while on the Grand Tour...


And get some Memorable Family Photos taken of your experience, to Cherish for years to come...


And probably as you Exit you'll want to just start all over again and do it twice in a row... which we always do...


Because it'll be on the 2nd trip that you'll really delve into the Details...


And take those closer looks at each Beautifully Styled Tree...


Because whether  you're being captivated by the overall effect...


Or the attention to Detail... you're sure to be transported to a Magical Place on the canvas of your Imaginations...


Oh yes... an Enchanting Place where Dragonflies and Butterflies adorn Christmas...


And flights of Fancy in your Imagination begin to take shape...


With Images and Inspiration of what YOUR perfect Christmas Tree might now look like?!?


And whichever Styling you choose you realize... is there really such a thing as a Christmas Tree that isn't Beautiful?  I think not...


And maybe that is why I've always Loved going Christmas Tree Admiring each Season... to see the efforts of everyone else's Christmas Tree Visions...


And be further Inspired to make ours Special each year...


Because though I seriously doubt I would ever have the energy or Gifting to Style this many Trees in any one Christmas...


Or Host an Open House for all of the Community to enjoy... I am appreciative of those who do...


They really are Angels with flesh on... 


A rare Dear Soul that exemplifies the Spirit of Giving to everyone and anyone...


And especially during this Holy Season that really is admirable and magnifies the true Spirit of Christmas...


Of selfless Love in action... spreading Joy in their own Special way...


And using their Time, Treasure and Talents to give that Joy to others... as we behold what they are Hosting and Inviting us to partake in...


And we really appreciate that more than they ever might imagine... and mere words cannot express...


And I know that such things never go unrewarded... as Heavenly Hosts look down upon such an extension of Loving one's Neighbor as oneself...


And Inviting Strangers to enjoy Christmas with you... not necessarily using words to Minister to their Spirits... 


But an actual Experience...


And giving the Gift of Hospitality.


Which is a very precious Gift indeed.


I do Hope you have enjoyed the Hospitality of Mr. Chuchla this Evening as well my Friends?
And that you'll come back again as we continue to enjoy more of Christmas here in the Arizona Desert...

Blessings... Dawn... The Bohemian

  1. Wow! It makes my modest wish for just one vintage white Christmas tree seem insignificant. Maybe my dream really WILL come true!

    There was a kind of pinkish (not the feather tree) on with blue-green/aqua bulbs on it that kind of caught my eye....

    I would have gone through a THIRD time, I'm quite sure!

  4. Oh Dawn I have never seen such a lavish display. You are so lucky to get to see this and the children must have loved it. I finally got it together and I just posted Christmas at my Old Historic House, Richard. PS. I hope you will drop by for a peak.
