How to Decorate Your Christmas Tree: Part 1 (Getting started, choosing a theme, adding lights and floral accents)
How to Decorate Your Christmas Tree: Part 2 (Putting up large and specialty ornaments)
Technically, this post should have been included with Part 2. But I was having technical difficulties, so we will have a small Part 3.
This is all about the ball ornaments. (And I'm not sure which we have more of: Icicles or balls.)
For a while we had clear glass balls filled with red and gold glitter and potpourri that we made. Unfortunately, most of them broke (glass + children = disaster) so they are no longer with us. But they were really pretty, too. Maybe we'll do it again when Sophia is 16.
The reason I save them for almost last is because there are so stinkin' many of them and it's easier to get everything else spaced nicely without the balls there first.
Next up: Ribbon/garland. But in the meantime, here's our tree with all of the ornaments on it (except the two or three that we save for very very very last) just before the ribbon. We're getting there!
