Do you have a certain style for decorating your Christmas tree? Decorate your tree as a family and add all your ornaments and trimmings!

There are so many special ornaments you can add to your tree, from capturing this year's special events to starting an annual tradition. These keepsake ornaments would be a great addition to your family's tree!

When do you usually put up your Christmas tree? Is it a real or an artificial tree? Do you get your kids special ornaments each year?

We've had an artificial tree for the past 5 years.  Our decorations are a mixture of things collected over the years.  They are mostly ornament from Dh's childhood.

Next year I hope to have a more natural look to our tree and decorations.  Perhaps some pine cones, berries, birds and things :-)

We usually put up the tree right after thanksgiving. Its an artifical tree. My MIL got it for us the first year we were married. Yes! We get our son a special ornament each year. This year he's getting an elmo onrament. Because he loves sesame street and elmo is his favorite character on there.

We have an artificial tree.  It goes up in early December each year.  I normally buy my dd the Hallmark "daughter" ornament every year and usually another ornament that catches her eye.

We always have a real tree. My dad got a fake one the year my mom was in the hospital though.

 Our tree goes up sometime in December and it is artificial. We don't purchase any special kid ornaments but we do purchase new ornaments every now and than.

We don't have a style for decorating. We just put up lights and ornaments.

My tree goes up the weekend after Thanksgiving, a fake one, even though I would LOVE to have a real one. But living in apartments really doesnt allow me that luxury lol! Plus its a lot of extra work. Every year my kids get to take turns hanging one certain Santa ornament like I did as a kid, and they usually get a new ornament every year
