I don’t HAVE a tree. I have a mantle with ornaments on it, though. And a wreath… with lights! And garland. Still on the floor.

Our tree is all gold, but next year I want to do red and silver or all handmade ornaments… it just gets pricey though!

Here is a pic of our 9 foot tree!

@MrsBee- Baby got you up? :p

 

Our tree will have red and gold ornaments, though it looked like Sears snuck some purple-y ones in the box… I just bought cheap ones online lol I would do the popcorn and cranberry garland, but I’m too afraid of it atracting roaches! We have a gold star tree topper, and I bought a snowman ornament that says our first christmas or something like that lol I’ll share pics as soon as we get the tree. It should be delivered via UPS tomorrow!

Wow, Mrs. Bee your tree is great!  We usually do a color theme for our ornaments.  I’m thinking we might go with red and gold this year.  We always have white lights (he hates colored lights) and no tinsel (I hate tinsle).

@Jessie I hate tinsel too! Ugh! When I was a kid we used to have a cat who would eat it. Didnt hurt her, but that made for some interesting kitty poo! That stuff really just gets everywhere.

As much as it doesn’t “match our decor or style AT ALL, I insist on having a tree full of ornaments from when I was little, from vacations, etc…I can’t help it, I am super sentimental at Christmas!  ๐Ÿ™‚  We are putting ours up on Friday, so I will post pictures then!

Bee-  love your tree!

We don’t have any heirloom ornaments, and I don’t think our parents do either.

My mom bought a tree many years ago for maybe $5 on a clearance rack, so she gave it to us. 

I wanted tinsel and garland, and BF wanted multicolored lights, so we compromised.  I got garland/tinsel, he got multicolored lights.  We also decided we needed to show ownership of our tree with our initials.  (I guess my way of nudging BF is saying “oh I would LOVE to put an initial on this, but we can only choose one… I vote for (my last initial)”.)   We haven’t found a topper yet, but for now I have a color-changing snowman hung up there.  My tinsel was only long enough to go around the bottom of the tree, and I am too cheap to buy more.

BF chopped the top and bottom of the tree from the picture.

Mine is red and silver with a hint of black with the presents in the tree (that is the Mr.’s contribution)

I started out all green and red with some white lights.  Now that I have 5 kids in the house, it’s a whole mixture of all their crafts and other stuff they put on the tree.  Oh well.  Maybe one year I’ll get to do two trees – theirs and mine.

We sadly don’t have a picture of ours, but we decorate it with a mix of multi-colored ball ornaments, sentimental ones and vintagey ones. My favorite ornament that we purchased this year is the owl from C&B ๐Ÿ™‚

ours is red, silver, and white. alongside our generic ornaments we have an ornament to commemorate a major event of each year starting with the first year we put up our own tree in our own house. this year, we hung our cake topper to commemorate our wedding earlier in the year. ๐Ÿ™‚
