Here is our tree:

It's a 9' monster, because when we bought our house and I realized I had vaulted ceilings, I HAD to go big, right?  There's no real theme, most are sentimental ornaments from when I was growing up, though most of the recent ornaments have a kind of country/North Woods aesthetic.

Here's mine....a lot of the ornaments are homemade or hand decorated. It's a pre-lit fake tree...and I'm totally good with that. We did a real tree one year and I spent the entire month of December worried it would get too dry & catch on fire!! So, fake from now on.

No theme this year.  I bought blue lights, and was going to put up the blue and silver balls...but they've been lost in the move, and Im' too cheap to buy more.  So, ecclectic it is!

To show off the blue lights:

Here is mine - it is done in Burgundy and Gold - although next year I think I may switch it up and do either Mauve and Silver or Teal and Silver.

Here is our tree! It is real too. We do a real one every year. Hubby picked this one. I thought he went a bit Griswold, but it turns out it is gorgeous.
Lots of handmade ornaments and Hallmark ones too. I have a series of puppy ornaments my mom has been getting me for 20 years this year! No theme, but each ornament has a story and brings a memory.

With the lights off.

i've decided our tree needs more decorations as well as more tinsel so we're going to go out and get more at the weekend, boyfriend wants colours so we'll probably go a bit wacky
Fake trees need (and can take) for more decorations than live ones, but can't complain too much as it's a 6' cheapo from B&M for 9.99

My bf told me the week before Thanksgiving that he told his parents that the house would be decorated by the time they got here... I said fine but I would get my way. No traditional tree for me!
