here is a look at our Christmas Tree for 2012 (not many presents under the tree as my children got experiences this year instead of gifts that clutter)
This year we have just the one tree as we didn't have our ladder to get into the ceiling to get any others down :( so while it was disappointing not to have a forest of trees I love how our tree looks and may even repeat this colour theme for 2013. We went with the black tree which was down (but packed away) from last year and it was perfect for our theme of Red, Black, Kraft & Cream.
I created the rosettes on the tree using old dictionary paper, paper doilies and some old ugly poinsettias that I glittered.
I had to purchase new lights as my lights that I have had for approx 30 years finally just stopped working, not too happy with the lights as they have white wiring, which stands out too much for me but that was all that was left in the stores.
I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas
