We found the perfect Christmas tree. When you get married you get the best and worst of Christmas past. Handmade ornaments from the deceased mother-in-law (which are actually some of the best) to the red and blue felt soldier from Montessori School - mine. WOW! My sister-in-law gave a valuable idea - you don't have to use the same ornaments year to year. Her tree has red and silver balls, white lights and looks great. She used 1/3 of what Christmas ornaments she has. It just never occurred to me.
I think our treee looks like an old-fashioned tree except for the big pink ball with a blue crown. It sort of stands out from everything else.
