I’m happy to say that the tree is finally up!
It has taken a while but we finally got there. Last year we had a blue, silver and white tree and the kids decided we needed to change it up a bit this year. We decided to go with all silver, gold and whites mixed with pearls and crystals.
I used both old and some new ornaments. I did not have a big budget to work with for new decorations so we just added a few.
I find that anything goes as long as it stays within the set color theme.
This year I decided to let the kids have free range with decorating (with the exception of the strings of beaded and crystal garlands) and they did a beautiful job with a bit of guidance. It’s soooo hard to let go! After about halfway through some got tired and left to annoy others and me and my tiny helper Precious finished it off.
I would have preferred she didn’t help :) if you know what I mean!
This is how the tree looks lit up at night… I love the warmth of a lighted tree!
I hope you are all enjoying this Christmas season!
