Reese Witherspoon has broken tradition with her Christmas trees this year, much to the delight of her legion of celebrity friends. 

The American actor took to Instagram last month to debut her unconventional holiday decor – and to get some trusted feedback from her online fanbase. 

The social media update comes shortly after it was revealed that Big Little Lies Season 3 is unlikely to ever happen, following the death of its director, Jean-Marc Vallée. 

Never one to let career setbacks dampen her mood, Reese has continued to maintain a positive spirit in the run-up to Christmas. 

In fact, she's even gotten a headstart on celebrating the festive season. The 46-year-old shared a photo of an all-white Christmas tree on her Instagram on November 28, prompting a surge of reactions from her adoring online followers. The snap appears to have been taken at Reese's lavish Nashville mansion, which she shares with her husband Jim Toth, and their three children, Ava, Deacon and Tennessee. 

She captioned the Yuletide-themed picture (which is giving us serious Christmas tree decorating ideas), "Too soon?" The question led to a flurry of reassuring answers, most of which supported Reese's decision to unveil her Christmas tree earlier than normal. 

Some of the responses came from The Morning Show star's celebrity friends, including Mariah Carey, who commented, "Nah, you're good." Octavia Spencer agreed, writing "Nope!!!", while Mindy Kaling said, "Never. Wreath Witherspoon lives!!" 

Reese's decision to have an all-white tree adorned by silver and red baubles was also welcomed by her fanbase, many of whom praised the Hollywood icon's unique deviation from tradition. "Love your flocked tree!" one person wrote, while another commented, "It's a pretty tree."

Two days prior, Reese had also shared a photo of her rainbow Christmas tree. As promotion for the 2022 Hello Sunshine gift, the Academy Award winner posed in front of a Nordmann fir decorated with multi-colored baubles while holding a glass of champagne. The tree is topped by a glittering star and decked with lights, while its base is surrounded by wrapped presents. 

She captioned the image, which was accompanied by a remix of Mariah Carey's 2010 song Oh Santa, "Bringing that holiday magic, and serving up gift guides." The vibrant adornments were equally popular with Reese's fanbase, most of whom hailed the tree for its bright and uplifitng decor.
