    My tree is all red & purple (our wedding colors) & gold, cause I thought 2 colors was too boring.  I think I like more colors so I’ll probably start adding more next year after stocking up on the after xmas sale.  What color to add next…..

    I like having balls of the same color scheme. Then I have a mishmash of cute ornaments collected over time.

    DH and I have determined that we have VERY different Christmas styles. He likes the loud, bright, colorful decor while I like more natural, woodsy, and nuetral decor. In general I’ve thrown more color around the house than I would normally, for his sake, but in ways that make sense to my style like cardinals and pointsettas rather than snowmen and santas. 

    We only have one tree this year that will be a mismosh of both styles, but in the future we decided to invest in TWO trees, one for the living room and one for his man-cave, each with our own individual styles.

    @AB Bride:  No theme to our ornaments (my parents had mostly purple and gold and swarovski), but we have red and white poinsettias and a red and gold bow!

    One year my Mom and I did a theme tree together (as a second, smaller tree) it was a woodland theme with bird houses, pinecones, animals in mostly coppers, golds and reds. When I got married last year she gave me those ornaments and I’ve been using them.

    Growing up we had a mishmash of ornaments, but an overall color theme of blues, pinks, and purples was pretty obvious from some of the larger decorations and ribbons.

     

    The bow on top was from our wedding cake. 🙂

    We started off with no theme (coloured lights, ornaments we have been collecting) but then my husband said he wanted a FESTIVE tree….when I asked what that meant, he said to him it meant plaid, bells, and red&green. So now we have a theme tree – red & green plaids, forest elements….and bells. So many bells. 

    I think eventually we will have 3 trees (our main “festive” tree, a tree with coloured lights and our special ornaments, and a very small tree for me to decorate how I wish).

    We will DEFINITELY need two trees when we have our own larger house lol.  DH grew up with the most colorful explosion tree.. colored lights, a mishmash of every handmade/heirloom ornament they have, all different colors of other kinds of ornaments, string tinsel… it could blind you.

    Me and my family are a little more in the middle, with some color scheme/themey ornaments, white lights, and then some of the special ornaments that don’t quite go.

    My grandmother always has this beautiful magazine picture tree, thats always in a lovely color scheme lol.

    So, in the future, we’ll have the family tree, the loud, brightly colored, handmade ornaments one, and then mine, where I can theme/color scheme it out to my little hearts content!

    (This year… a bit more color schemey, since we are just starting out! We will only have one small tree, or two really small ones though.)

    We have a color scheme for the most part but we also have personal ornaments thrown in there that definitely don’t match the rest also on the tree.

    We have a regular tree with ornaments collected over the years, and a tree of just bird & owl ornaments.

    We use lights that can change from white to multi colored and we typically alternate the days, just to change it up. We use round balls (shiny, matte, & glitter) in red and gold. Decided against green ones because the tree is green. Our skirt is red with a white trim and a 3D Frosty on it. We have a gold glitter star on the top.

    Not sure what’s going to happen when we hae kids because I really hate the look of trees with a bunch of mismatched, homemade ornaments. Maybe we can get them a “baby” tree and they can put that stuff on there haha

    Huge mish-mash… I have a Charizard, Beanie Baby, Disney Pocahontas, Dallas Stars, Dallas Cowboys, a THOUSAND Aggie things, all of my “baby’s 1st/2nd/3rd Christmas” ones, one I made out of a styrofoam cup as a kid, little glitter-and-glue baby handprint of myself, a panda bear, a penguin, a martini glass, Ralphie in his pink bunny pjs, a little mini-book of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, 7,000 cats and dogs and santas and SERIOUSLY I HAVE EVERYTHING. It’s really ridiculous.

    @AB Bride:  Everything is uniform. We have a white frosted star and all the ornaments are blue and white/silver with different textures. They came as a pack. In the tree we also have cinnamon scented pinecones.

    I would like to put another tree in the lower level for all the homemade ornaments and special ones. All the special ornaments we have currently, we hang up somewhere else.
