I’m just starting to think about Christmas. I’m having a dinner party next week for 12 people & decided to go for a Christmas theme. Thus got out the decorations.
I’ve been collecting these retro apple Christmas decorations for a few yrs. I love making a “Christmas” tree from branches. The pink branches I painted & beaded my self last Christmas. For over ten years I’ve done a non traditional tree, using branches, 50’s white vases & even
bird cages.For many of those years I never owned a traditional tree. Some family members were worried friends would think us too poor to afford a “normal”tree. Now the the non traditional is popular I went out & purchased a huge traditional tree.( on special for $35 after Christmas sales last year. I like it but wonder what I was thinking!)
It’s here to stay now! I’ll just become creative over the next few Christmas decorating it in a non traditional way!
