The last like 10 years, I guess, my parents and I stopped decorating a Christmas tree before holidays. We have a few very small ones but it's not the same, you know. My mom always says that Christmas trees are only for kids so we stopped using our silver tree after I with my sister grew up.
But recently my sister called me and asked if I have white or green tinsels. I said that I don't have but she may come and look in the box with the old Christmas tree and decorations. And I've got the idea to decorate our tree again. It does not look that bad (better than on photos actually) and with new pretty decoration, it must look nice.
So yeah, it's the silver one. Super shiny one. It gives me super retro nostalgic Christmas vibes. I'm sure this year I will have a more Christmasy mood than in recent years.
Decorations that survived for like 20-30 years. Actually, there are only a few survivors. Most of the toys are from more recent times when we still used to decorate a Christmas tree.
Nobody in my family knows how these Santas turned out in the box. Nobody bought them. So I don't know. Santa's present, haha? But they are awesome. Will use them for decoration for sure.
Here are few items I bought today:
I thought maybe a white tinsel will make my Christmas tree look more fluffy. Not sure if it will work!
Needed a new topper. I think it was the best one in the store. Glittery stars are only can be used for one Christmas and on the next one it will look really bad. I guess it must be alright with this one.
I thought these angels look really stylish!
Tomorrow I will decorate the Christmas tree and we will see if I could save the oldie. Hope so! It must be fun tomorrow!
I noticed most of decorations-survivors are pink, violet or red. And I'm pretty sure this colors will look good on a silver Christmas tree and it gives me girly vibes. And I will add my new decorations. Also, I add some silver and white tinsels for fluffiness and probably fairy lights. But I have only black wire ones. So not sure how it will look on silver.
