  • Our first December in this house was our first year married and I was pregnant with DS. We decided to start completely from scratch. We went and bought a few dozen ornaments of things we like - mostly Star Wars and cartoon characters, and one special one for DS even though he wasn't due til February. Each year we add a few more - gifts from friends or ones he's made. I expect by the time we're old and gray and have grandkids, we'll have one of those trees that has 3 ornaments on every branch to hold it all, but for now it's just a little bit at a time.

  • I am going "all new" this year. New tree and all new decorations. Last year I went with burnt orange and gold ornaments. I started decorating a week before Halloween. This year, I will wait until the day after.

  • Our tree is all bright and shiny, too much tackiness is just enough when it comes to trees IMO ;-) Lots of different colors, mix of the thread wrapped ones and the glass ones, and lots of silver tinsel. We just bought the big tubs of mixed ones from Target, I don't like the mixed ornament look.

  • I like the look of classic glass red balls with white lights... Very basic but very beautiful!

  • We don't put up a tree but we decorate the house with suns, snowflakes, snowmen, ice fairies, fresh greens & anything else that says "winter" to us.
