What? Tree theme? Yes, you read that right. Tree theme. I am that kind of person. A tree theme person.
I've always been this way since we got married and decorated our own tree. I've been fascinated with the beautiful details and the design process. It's a creative outlet for me. Apparently, I'm darn good at it too (or so Bill says). For the last four years, we've had a rustic Colorado themed tree with wooden bears, moose, bird houses, and everything woodland-creature related. It was cute and I liked it a lot. But, it was getting tired. It was time to switch themes. I asked Logan what he thought we should do - flowers (poinsettias) or snowflakes. He chose snowflakes.
The boys helping me get the lights up, meaning, stomping on the lights and breaking glass all over the floor.I bought all new ornaments - silver balls, silver glittered balls, ice cycles and snowflakes. We even have a snowflake as the star on top of the tree. I wasn't so sure about it when I was buying the ornaments, but now that it's finished - it turned out better than I imagined. It's beautiful.
So, now we have a winter wonderland snowflake tree that glows in the front room right in center of the window facing the street. It's picturesque.
Someday I will do the hall of trees - volunteering to decorate a display. Someday, when I'm not doing everything else!
