Decorating my Christmas Tree every year is one of my favorite things to do. Every year our family goes to a U-Cut and finds a Noble Fir. I like the space in-between the branches so the ornaments can hang and be seen!
I remember the days when the kids helped--and hung their own ornaments on the tree. It was a great family experience to be treasured forever. But, now, I decorate my tree with lots of glitz and fun--and a different color theme each year. Here are my themes:
Gold, Burgundy and Glass
Greens, Champagne, Wood, Pears and Partridges (Pears and Partridges from my mom)
Reds, Silver and Glass
Silver, Pink, Purples and Blues (my grandma's ornaments--she loved pink!)
|Some fun "Whoville" ornaments and glass beads|
AND--this year--I did a fun new theme! I call it my Whoville Tree! We ended up with a super tall tree with a wonky top, so I pulled out my pink, blue and purple ornaments along with some crazy ones I picked up at various garage sales this summer. I also found some wild glass beads to string as well. The top is a glitzy butterfly, and we have a Grinch to connect up there--he'll be reaching for the top, tangled in some lights. But, our tree is so tall, we have to use our huge ladder and hope my son doesn't fall in the process!

I couldn't get a good photo of the entire tree, but here are some close-ups so you can enjoy the ornaments! Don't they remind you of the colors of Hawaii?? Although not traditional, I LOVE this tree!
What about you? How do you like to decorate your tree?? Enjoy!
|And here's the "wonky" top!|
Remind you of Whoville??
Aloha, and Mahalo for visiting!
