Beautiful job on your tree! I think a few extra ball ornaments wouldn't hurt anything. I see a couple spots that would fit an extra one or two, nothing too over the top. Plus, it's your tree. If you want more, put on more. You can always take them off if you don't like it!

We put our tree up last Saturday. I really like to pack the tree full of ornaments, tinsel etc. I think there never can be enough. I hate being able to see through the tree to the other side too.

I think it looks great, but I don't see why you can't add more if you wanted to.

I agree. My tree has a lot more. you have a lot of space to add more if you want. go for it and make it as bright and festive as possible.

I love your tree, it looks great. I put a theme up on mine, so it's full but I have a large tree in the living room. One trick I do is put the balls inside the tree so they reflect the light back out. Makes it look beautiful.

I think you've got a nice balance on there. I really don't like overly decorated trees so in answer to your question - yes, there can be too many decorations on a tree!!!

Too much takes away from the decorations themselves. None will really stand out if they're all packed in like sardines and it just looks messy

It's like makeup; less is more!!!!!

But again, like people have said before, it's a matter of taste

Each year I think my tree needs 'something' - but once I take it down and look at the photo, I usually think it looked very nice

Beautiful tree
