Oh Christmas Treeeeee, how lovely are thy branches?Our tree is decorated with vintage ornaments, retro inspired lights and kitschy touches like a plastic star that fades to different colors, sequin bows and lots and lots of sparkly silver tinsel.
We scored the old school style multi-colored bulb set three years ago at CVS. We've checked every year since to purchase more (we always think we will run out) and they don't even sell them anymore. Maybe it was a one time thing? Either that or they don't stock our CVS with them. Somehow, we make what strands we have work.The vintage ornaments hail from my late Grandmothers attic. No one loved Christmas and getting the family together more than her. I cherish that I have something tangible of hers to keep that memory alive. We also were given some ornaments of the same genre from Adam's Mom's basement, probably the ones his grandmother used on her tree. They mesh together perfectly, and with those bulbs it was just meant to be. The set of holiday colored sequin stars came from my Mom. They add a pop of sparkle in colors of red, silver, gold, green and blue.
Can't forget Adam's Buzz Lightyear. We top the tree with a kitschy plastic star that changes colors and load the branches with tinsel. Ta-DaIf you celebrate Christmas, did you / do you purchase a tree? How do you like to decorate it?
