Now that my oldest is married she wants more of the traditional looking ornaments so Emily gets to keep all these crazy ones for now. I keep asking her if this is the kind of tree she wants to have someday when she is married and she always answers .."of course! I love sparkly, shiny, foofy looking things and my husband and family will just have to love it too!" I love it!
I really enjoy looking at all these colors and at night when the tree is lit up is just glows!
The garlands look like beaded necklaces wrapped around the tree....little pink clear beads. For the tree skirt I had some lime green satin fabric laying around (from some pajama pants my mom and I had made for her volleyball team members a few years ago..Remember mom? We about pulled our hair out because the satin fabric would start to fray and fall apart so we actually made 11 pairs of pajama pants twice!!! OH Man they were a pain)
Emily draped the fabric around the base and it looks awesome!
