Our family usually goes all-out for Halloween. For Thanksgiving, we invite all of our friends and put up a few decorations. But when December rolled around, I realized that most of my friends jubilantly updated their Facebook statuses announcing they had decorated their home for the holidays. Darling Christmas decorations stared at me from one status to the next. Gorgeous trees and even Menorahs seemed to mock my lack of holiday cheer.
So… my daughter and I decided to decorate a tree on December 1st – just in time for breakfast. I can guarantee you that it went up faster than anyone else’s tree – and probably went down (with a cup of coffee or milk) a lot faster, too!
This photo didn’t turn out very well, but when I came back with my good camera, the kids had already dug in and there was nothing left to photograph! LOL. I found the Cinnamon Roll Christmas Tree recipe on Pillsbury’s site, but it was my daughter’s idea to add the cherries. In fact, they have MANY very cute recipes. My kids would love the Silly Snails, but I want to try the Java Glazed cinnamon rolls. Be sure to stop by their coupon page and print the latest coupons needed for your recipes. They actually had one to save .50 cents off 2 Pillsbury Sweet Rolls or Grands Sweet Rolls when I wrote this post, but their Pillsbury coupons offering changes up often.
Sure, it’s not a real tree, but it did help my holiday doldrums enough that I boxed up the Happy Harvest decorations – and it doesn’t drop needles all over the floor, so it’s really better than a real tree – at least for now.

Thanks to Pillsbury for the VIP coupon for a free can of Pillsbury® Cinnamon Rolls OR Grands!® Cinnamon Rolls. We sure had fun putting this together… and even more fun eating them. While Pillsbury’s generosity was an inspiration to post, my thoughts are genuinely my own. I’m sure I will be coming back to print some more Pillsbury coupons so we can do this again – or try a different fun recipe.
