My Christmas tree is one of my favorite holiday traditions.
I have a themed tree… it is blue and silver. Always. As a child we had blue lights on our tree and when I found blue lights I had to have them. Then I started buying blue and silver ornaments. It reminds me of bright, snowy days of my childhood. My boyfriend likes to say my Christmas tree is a Chanukah tree because of the colors. I do have red and green decorations for the rest of the house, but I love my blue and silver tree… so it stays.
This year I finally upgraded my artificial Christmas tree. I used to have a Charlie Brown tree. It claimed it was six feet, but it was barely my height (5’6″). The branches were sparse. It was a very sad looking tree and did not fit all my ornaments. Then Target had all artificial trees 50% off and I bought a 7.5-foot tall tree. I had to use a step ladder to get the lights and star on the top. I love it!
Here are a few shots of some of my ornaments. I bought all of them at Target and Kohl’s over the last several years. Actually, I think most of my Christmas decorations have come from Target and Kohl’s. Both stores always seem to have a plethora of cute decorations and you can find great deals after Christmas.
