Christmas DecorationsChristmas is a hands-on art. From the lights we put on the house to the decorations we put on the tree to the great foods we eat in the process, Christmas is a time of doing -- and this is the place we gather to talk, plan and share.

Tips for Buying a Fresh Tree
I will do that fresh cut of the trunk.....that was my problem last Christmas.....the tree lost so many needles....even tho it was fresh....the problem was....since I didn´t cut the trunk....the tree...
Last year we had a red,gold, and snow theme. We havent quite got all the details for this year but we do know this, we are buying a bigger tree for the downstairs family room. we are going to put lights and garland on the fire place mantel as well as on the stair railing. We have also thought about hiring someone to put Ice sickle lights on our house this year (Last year was our first yera in our new 2 story & my dad did not feel comfortable doing them, to be honest I wouldent do them either, but this year we plan on hireing someone.)
Merry Christmas & God Bless,

i couldn't vote because our color scheme changes every five-seven years. When I was little, it was very eclectic, then when I got a bit older it was red and green, then after that it was silver and white, then silver and royal blue, and now it's pale blue and gold. It's beautiful!
My mother changes her color scheme yearly. She has several artifical trees, some flocked. SHe does a lot of silver and gold. One year she did doves and had birds all over the house ( fake ) It's a surprise each year as to what we'll see when arriving for Christmas
Last year we did the tree in a pink & purple theme, it was very different, there was even a purple feather boa in there!
It sounds tacky but it was really nice, I guess it depends on how you do it & the exact shades you use, this year however we're going for red, white and silver and I'm thinking of a snow theme for everywhere else, If you want a white christmas in Australia you can keep dreaming unless you DIY lol
Hi all.i just go with what ever i make up.but im more old school.we use c7 and c9 lights done in rainbow colors.and blow molds.our blow mold collection is the star of our display.we have snowmen,santa,and others.
usually i draw my plans out for what i want done and color them in with colored pencils
ex: take drawing paper draw out my tree then add lights etc.. i think this year i will do gold and silver to match the room it's going to be in (formal living room).
as far as other decorations around the house i just wing it then when it comes to outside i'm like a mad man taking measurements in the middle of the night making sure my lights will fit all around my roof and garage once i get the base of lighting the outlines of my house down with gold lights then i add the small things like a snowman here and there santa hanging out by the door. i like traditional things like wreaths and such but not into the new fangled devices like air-driven snowmen and santas it's not my thing.
