Then after they went to bed I did a little (not much) rearranging. I mean, one branch doesn't really need 10 ornaments on it - does it?
It's a happy little "whatever goes" tree. Rather than loading it up completely we selected only our favorites so that each ornament could really shine.
We've got everything from a skiing Santa.......
to a sledding snowman......
with a few special childhood ornaments thrown into the mix.
I wrapped a few ornaments in winter wear cutting up a thrifted scarf to make ribbon.
I just taped the fabric on so it's not a permanent change.
So that's how we dressed our little white tree this year - colorful and fun with magic and sentiment!
It sits in a corner of our family room where we can also see it from the breakfast nook and kitchen. I love seeing it all lit up from the table during dinner. There's nothing better than a Christmas tree at night!
It's like magic.
And I think this is my favorite picture of the whole year.
Have you trimmed your tree?
