Well it's coming up on that time again: Christmas :presents1: :christmastree:
I love this time of year, not only is Halloween and Thanksgiving coming but Christmas is right on its heels.
So I started thinking this weekend about my theme for the living room tree. (I change it each year) There's only 5 weeks left before I start to put up my tree... which means in two weeks I need to start getting my new decorations for the season.
I was thinking white, silver and blue this year with lots of ice cycles. Very ethereal. :)
What do you all have planned?
ahh it's so depressing in January, but this time of year is the best! :D And there is nothing like the feeling of looking forward to setting everything up. It wouldn't be that way if we left everything up all year ;)
We don't usually have a theme. I just really enjoy getting otu the same decorations year after year.
we have no theme as such but for many years its been a frosted look with
lots of clear shimmering glass on...:christmastree:
I have never done a theme. I just put on anything I think looks pretty. but, the colors you are thinking of sound really pretty.
Every few years or so I do a different theme. When my daughter got married, it was Wedding Bells..I did everything in white roses with hearts and keys. For the past few years, I've been doing a venetian theme with jesters, because we went to Italy and I fell in love with Venice. So, this year I'm doing the same jester theme, and the tree in the family room will have baby jesters and fun ornaments for my grandchildren. We'll see how it comes out! The master bedroom is done alittle differently, all in white (with some jesters thrown in). We are still trying to decide what to do with the outside decorations. I'm setting up the first two trees this week, and can't wait!
We dont have a new theme each year , although we do get a new tree every few years
When i was born we had a green one i was told
Then we had a gold one with stars on it for Years
Now we have another green one (But I think we need a new one this year) :elf1:
Well, I forgot to :welcome: you friend!!!

I am using a white pre lit this year with clear and red ornaments on it. my mom gave me some older ornaments to use also this year. I am hoping to put my tree up before I go into surgery. !:home::santa2::christmastree:
