Vintage Red Truck with Christmas Tree

Red Truck with Christmas Tree

I don’t know what the “thing” is about a red truck with Christmas tree in the back, but it is a “thing”.  Everywhere you look you can find these cute little ornaments, pillows, dishes, and more, all with a red truck with a Christmas tree in the back.  I have never had a truck, let alone a red one.  I have gotten a live Christmas tree, but it was usually brought home on top of the car.  I cannot deny that I think those cute little images of the red truck with the tree tug at my heartstrings though.  I don’t know if it is the nostalgic look, the idea of the the family going out in a truck to bring home the tree or just the cute colors of the red truck and the green tree.  I got so inspired that I had to jump into the fray with this my Rustic Red Truck Tablescape!  This one was a couple of years ago, but I will be sharing another version this coming week!

I would sure enjoy serving up cookies and hot chocolate to friends or family on this fun Christmas platter featuring a red pickup truck with a black lab ready to greet you.    Everything about these says snuggle up for Christmas to me.Little Red pickup truck being driven by Santa with Christmas Trees in the back

How about a cute little red truck that lights up?  You could add this one to your mantel and Santa will deliver the trees right to you!

I decided I had to search across the internet and find all of the things that are out there adorned with that little red truck.  This is a cute little Kurt Adler Christmas ornament.  I like the lights trimming the truck but the wheels look a little like the Flintstone’s cars with one giant wheel in front and back.  Can you tell I watched too much television as a child?


I don’t yet know exactly how I will decorate my tree in my new home, but I am thinking it will be more coastal, so this might be the little red truck object for me.  I would love tucking this little Merry Christmas pillow on one of my new leather sofas (which won’t be arriving until after Christmas this year), or out on my front porch on the double rocker.

Manuela over at The Cultivated Nest  got so creative, she just found a little old toy truck and added a Christmas tree to the back.  This made an adorable addition to her holiday bookshelves.  I have been on the lookout for one of the trucks, I haven’t found one yet.  If you see one, you might want to snatch it up.

At Our Southern Home, Christy used this little truck as a centerpiece for a Christmas brunch table.  She found this vintage truck over on Ebay, what a find!

I don’t think this little truck is bringing a tree home, this looks like a truck that has been parked or maybe broke down where it was left, but decorated for Christmas.  I have never been one to add a wreath to a car I drive around, but it sure looks cute on this truck along with the decorated tree in the back.  This is actually a canvas and it lights up!  That would entertain the grandbabies at my house.

I could use one more holiday pillow anytime.  My hubby may not think so, but how cute is this?  This one is a little pricy, but it still might find a home at my house this Christmas!

Last but certainly not least is this pair of pretty guest hand towels featuring both a red truck and a red Woody hauling home the Christmas trees.   I don’t know if you find the red trucks with Christmas trees as cute as I do, but I think some of them are going to find their way into my home for Christmas.  What is your favorite Christmas look?

  1. I found a red vintage truck recently but didn’t buy it because it was a little pricey, but I’ve regretted it ever since!! I love those dishes, adorable!

  2. I think it’s that nostalgic classic look that comes to mind with the red truck and Christmas tree. I bought a Christmas ornament from Pottery Barn a few years ago with a red car and tree on the top and I love it! Great finds! My friend has a black lab and would love that pillow and those cookies are adorable!

  3. So true! We used to have a lot of colorful Christmas tree tains too. At our next party, I am featuring your post as one of my Editor’s Picks from this week’s Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop … congrats! ♥

  4. I found a very similar red truck at Hobby Lobby and it was 50% off this week! Debated about getting it….then decided I’d regret it if I did not get it. Thought my hubby would think I was crazy but he loved it too!

  5. Chloe, thanks so much for posting all these wonderful vintage truck with trees. I was able to purchase the salt and pepper set, AND JUST LOVE THEM. Thanks so much. They are soooo cute with my “Woody” plates from WalMart. Merry Christmas

  6. A great round up of ‘trucks’ – love all of the creative ideas. I’ve been looking for a turquoise, vintage, metal truck for years to use at Christmas. Still looking! I’ve seen a few but they were way more than I wanted to pay. I know there’s one out there somewhere!

  7. Love the little red truck! I grew up on a small farm and we always had a pickup truck! Christmas was not the ‘gimme gimme gimme’ holiday that it is today. Saddens me to see people so concerned with things, instead of each other. The red truck with the tree just cries for going back to a simpler celebration where we remember what is really important. Love your style, Chloe! Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  8. I love the red truck it remind me when i was little. My mother family had a farm and we always went to the farm on Christmas and Sunday they had a green truck just like the red one.Now all of them have past on, I so wish we could go back in time. What great memories I do have of the Family Farm !
