So, here's a place you to show off your beautiful Christmas tree.

Here's mine. The boyfriend and I decided to use blue and silver as our colour scheme.

This is ours.  My tree is usually brighter colors [think teal and hot pink] but I had to adjust this year to not clash with our rentals fleshy pink walls haha.

I'll play this game! Here is my tree! (lights both off and on, had to close the curtain for the second one) It's less than 4 feet tall since I live with my fiance in an apartment, so it is sitting on a Christmas-fabric covered box, and my "theme" is called "ornaments I have collected since childhood or was given to me when I moved out" lol, aka I do not have a theme. I do not like a themed tree in my house, I like a nostalgic tree. You probably can't tell, but there are a lot of plastic painted sesame street ornaments my mom and I made when I was 4, and along the bottom there are three low-hanging ornaments that spin when the lights are on. My grandma gave me those. Also there is a white yarn angel in the front that looks like a ghost, but I made it when i was 7 or 8, so I still like it. Cheesy

PS if you can see a little bit of zebra print poking out from behind the tree, it's the stocking I made for my sister. here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=330472.0

you could make one of those trees that slots together flat cardboard cutouts? they are simple and I'm sure you can find enough cardboard to do it for free! it will look very "charlie brown christmas" but oh so charming. Cheesy

My husband picked a matt black tree- because "it sucks the light from the room". sigh.  Wink

This year's tree, it's plastic Sad but last years live one got dessicated, poor tree, and the plastic one was cheap, going to get a nice one in the sales
so anyhow, theme is gold, was going to be gold and black (i thought it would look swish) but the black decorations just disappeared and you could barely see them so they came off in favour of more gold ones
it needs more tinsel so my boyfriend is going to pick some up tomorrow, but till then it looks ok

My brother gave me this one for my tree last year, it's pretty and it fits the theme so YAY, and it's the first nice decoration of my own, well, i have others that have been gathered over the years, but they're still at my parents', mam won't part with them yet and this is only my second year of having my own tree to decorate. Some day i shall rescue my DisneyLand decorations and my waterford crystal decoration and such like

Pretty sparkly snowflake i was given last year as part of my christmas present from a friend, so it's making it's first appearance on the tree
and a felt robin, also making his first appearance, i bought him in the sales last year as it's my belief that all christmas trees should have at least one robin, mostly as at my parents' house there are 2 oooooold robins (came from dad's parents i think) with actual feathers and wires for feet so they look like real robins perched in your tree, my brother and i got to put one on the tree each, each year

Here's mine!

I've yet to start crackin' on wrapping presents, haha!

Another angle.

Top half. I was going for a candy theme with ginger bread men and lollipops and peppermint candies.

Bottom half. I copyed the usage of white lights and a white garland from my mom since that's what our Xmas trees always had while growing up!

And your scared to death that you are never going to come alive.
