This Christmas tree is in our "parlor". My granddaughters have always called it the "pretty room" and still insist we open our gifts in there even though our family is out growing it.
I wish I could get a better picture of the tree, because it is so beautiful. My nephew helped me decorated it this year and he is still talking about what I put on my tree. We put the lights on first and then I add grapevine (I cut a grapevine wreath up), eucalyptus, dried flowers, and silk flower stems....all for texture. Then I add angel dolls, Santa heads, larger flowers, ribbon, bulbs, small angels, bows and any other thing I have collected over the years.
This tree is in our family room and decorated for the little kids. I have stuff animals, Santa lights, candy cane lights and garland, Christmas cards and anything a little one would enjoy.
They open their gifts first and while they are playing with their new toys, the adults open their gifts in the pretty room. With 10 little ones it gets very noisy and hectic. But, what joy they all bring to us.
We also have a tree on our back porch, but it is 7 above zero this morning with extreme winds and I am not going outside to get a picture.
How is your Christmas decorating coming? I would love to hear what you do. Thanks so much for stopping by on this cold wintry day. I am making lots of gifts this year for many on my gift list, so I have not been able to get any cards made to post. I will be posting my gifts once i deliver them.
