I used the ornaments I had from my previous years trees, ivory poinsetta, glittered pine cones, green mistletoe picks and muted gold and sage green balls.
Imagine my surprise and absolute joy when I opened the boxes of decorations to find new ornaments I picked up last year at Target's 75 and 90 % off sales! It was like shopping all over again! Dark bronze birds, glittery gold leaf picks and gold beaded picks.
I use to change out the theme of my main tree every year, until four or five years ago when I decided to stick with green, gold and ivory. I add to it now and then when I find something that catches my eye. What a change from when I use to decorate three trees! Simplify, Simplify, Simplify!
Christmas tree skirt...found at a yard sale three weeks ago for $5.00. I love the greens, golds and reds...how perfect since I am introducing red into my Christmas decor!
Headed to Northern Arizona tomorrow afternoon to pick up College Diva and two friends to bring them back home. Thrilled to have my little girl home for the holidays!
I am following Rhoda at Southern Hospitality Home for the Holidays Party. Be sure to head over and see her lovely home and all the others who have joined in!
