When I worked for an interior designer I learned how to decorate a Christmas tree professionally. You know the picture perfect trees with a theme and all matching ornaments and beautiful color schemes. Well it was fun and they turned out gorgeous but to me there is nothing like decorating a Christmas tree with handmade ornaments. The ornaments that my sister and I made in kindergarten or the ornaments my parents had when they were first married. Ornaments given to us as gifts through the years from our great grandparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbors teachers and friends. The ornaments may not match but these are the Christmas trees that hold a lot of meaning and show the love of family not the perfect commercial looking trees with all of the matching ornaments.
People say our home looks like a model home which means so much to me because I do a lot of decorating and try to make things just so and coordinate. However in our house we always reserve a corner in our study for our family Christmas tree that is not perfect and does not coordinate but is filled with love and memories. Merry Christmas and God bless you all!
