Today we picked out a beautiful nordman tree for Christmas. Take a peek on FB, it is big and gorgeous.I have not always done theme related trees because I love to collect different types of ornaments and often get them as gifts or I pick up one as a fond memory of our travels. This year, I have been thinking about a new look or a special theme to change it up. So while browsing through some very cool and colorful designs I fell in love with a monochromatic metallic vibe. I also, love the retro ornaments of mercury glass that I grew up with as they always remind me of my parents house and our Christmas’ together. I love some of the themes below and think I can use my favorite existing ornaments and add a new touch with some metallic garland, mercury glass bulbs and even get crazy with… yes… tinsel. Sounds beautiful.
