    Your Decorations

    How would you describe your decorations?

    I was talking with my mum about christmas decorations and hers are very modern and non traditional, she does not like father christmas so she has no pictures of him no models etc in the house....its all snow flakes/white and more what i would call winter wonderland style.

    My b/f mum is very traditional and has no lights on her tree just older baubles and older decorations around the house.

    I think mine are a mix of the two. which do you think feels more christmassy?

    My decorations are a bit of everything. Old, new, different colors, etc.

    I've been reading about themes. And its something I really want to start doing. I guess the easiest would be to do a color theme. But I want to work up to trying a rustic theme and a Victorian theme. They both sound fabulous.

    My favorite table decoration is a salt & pepper shaker set in the image of Father and Mother Christmas. They have been celebrating Christmas with us for years!

    Talking

    Im away too much traditional..

    Like old fashioned Christmas and Im a huge fan of red and green colors,
    I love red bows all over the place I decorate and I also hang lots of candy canes and Christmas cards on the tree.
    I like old toys, I always place a nativity scene under the tree and I also love trains under the tree..

    Christmas and the Holiday season brings to me back memories of times past.
    Well, I think, many things, such as decorations, are based on the traditions of my parents and of course, their parents.

    Popcorn Strings

    I'm going to be posting pictures soon of my tree this year, but one decoration I am absolutely in LOVE with is this Original Popcorn On A String that I found online last season. It brings out this old-fashioned/traditional feeling and it looks great! It's wax-coated so it stays preserved, and they are the biggest kernels of popcorn I've ever seen! I'm never stringing popcorn again!!! They have original plain garland and then also Jingle Berry which looks cute but I didn't buy those (YET)

    Me too, Mike. I wish I could find any that are like my old favorites from my childhood, but they are not made anymore. I don't know how accurate this is, but my mother says they were made in Germany many years ago and that the artisans who made them were exterminated during WWII. They were one of the few things I really wanted my mother to pass down to me. She doesn't have them any more, either, because after she moved 20-some years ago, she packed them away for storage in a barn and they were stolen. I have looked many times on ebay for any of them. I have found some very beautiful ornaments and decorations over the past few decades that I enjoy very much, of course, but I would so love to see those old ornaments again.
