There is something my mother can do with a Christmas Tree that I can only hope to replicate someday.
The lights, the decorations…it is truly an art in our home. Today I want to share with you a few tips I’ve picked up from my mother over the years… Let me warn you that these photos do not do it justice. In real life, this tree twinkles and glows. It simply cannot be beat!
1. Not multi-colored, but not monochrome. Rather…two colors. White & Red. (can you see the colors in here?)
2. Ornaments must go deep into the tree, not just along the edges.
3. Some should be homemade…
4….and some should simply be beautiful.
5. The topper does not need to be a star – bows will do.
7. Decorating goes beyond the tree – you must have special Christmas knick-knacks all throughout the room.
Like this guy.
