I put up a 7 1/2 ft. tree in our "great room" (our kitchen/dining room/tv room is basically 1 big open room) & this tree has no theme. I have a lot of ornaments that are pretty old - they are ornaments my Mom had when I was younger & living at home, & I also have a lot of new ornaments. My tree is pretty much packed full of ornaments & I'm buying more every year.
I decorate w/ thousands of multi lights & some clear too, silver garland, & a star tree topper. I put some fake snow on top of our entertainment center & I put decorations on top of the snow - small trees, (one lighted) a ceramic Santa & Mrs. Claus dancing, a fireplace w/ a Mom, Pop, & child standing beside it w/ the date "Dec. 24" displayed on the mantle, a Christmas candle & a couple other misc. Christmas decorations. I hang garland & lights accross our firplace mantle & I have mostly ceramic Christmas figurines on my mantle. I have a nativity scene on top of our stereo, a ceramic tree on top of a plant stand, I have a snowman lace tablecloth over the table w/ Santa place mats. I put lights & garland around our banister & 3 red bows going down. I cover our front door w/ red foil & I hang a Christmas wreath on the door. I also hang a Christmas wreath on our fireplace. I put decorations in every room in our house. In our basement I have a Buckeye tree (Ohio State) w/ red & clear lights, red & sliver beads, red & sliver garland, a red & sliver bow for the tree topper & all the ornaments are either an OSU ornament, or a silver, red, or white bulb w/ a OSU sticker on it (I actually used OSU face tatoo's & put them on the bulbs) I also have quite a few decorations I set out in the basement. Now I'm really excited to get my Christmas stuff out!!!
