Next trick is having small trees scattered around the house instead of just one single tree... Don't you notice when the kids help out, the base of the tree looks far different from the top? Well of course, there's probably a 25-30 year difference in the discerning eyes from the lower boughs of the tree to the upper branches near the star!
We've got a handful of small 24" tall trees that Paolo can literally do all on his own, as it's a manageable size. The twist is, we have black tinsel trees... On the black background, the ornaments just stand out so much more! The silver balls sparkle more... The intricacy of the handmade rattan snowflakes is more evident... It's a quick, great project that is all their own!
My family is definitely no frills, and the easier the better is the motto we tend to go with... I think it works for us though... What's your Holiday Decorations looking like this year?
