Our tree is up and decorated, and I am taking a chance and putting out the Christmas pyramids this year. You can see them in the header photo. The cats have left them alone thus far. I will keep my fingers crossed. I think we will put the cats in the basement when we light the pyramid candles. I had to put the straw goats up high, since our grey cat likes to chew the wheat berries off their beards.
I never have had a themed tree, one with color coordinated glass balls and bows. No, ours is a mix up of glass, straw, wood and china ornaments. Some were my parents before I was born. We like having lots of red color in our tree. I put the tomtens out on the buffet, hang the wreath on the front door, and that is that. A friend of our daughter who grew up in Stuttgart says our tree looks very German. It is how my mother decorated the tree, and I like the style.
What is your Christmas decorating style?
