In college, I didn’t decorate much for Christmas, but one of my best friends who usually hosted the Christmas gift exchange always decorated a small tree and cut out paper snowflakes. The year that I started working, was the year that I decided to decorate and bring the Christmas spirit to my own apartment.
I wanted a small tree that would fit in the little corner of my living room and store easily in the closet, so I bought this 4 ft. pre-lit tree last year at Super Target for $30.
The tree my family has at home always hosts a variety of ornaments bought at end-of season sales, received as Christmas gifts, or handmade by me or my sister in elementary school.
My tree mostly has a uniform look of red and gold ornaments with a few special ornaments mixed in.
The organized side of me likes the unified theme, but I also feel that it looks more like a department store display. A mix of ornaments could give it more personality and make it feel like it belongs in a home .
What do you think? Do you prefer an organized color theme or a hodge-podge of ornaments?
