Christmas Tree Decorating!

Sometimes I forget how much I love Christmas! I'm feeling extra spirited lately! 
lights <3
Growing up we used white lights most of the time! Mags (mom) was big on white lights everywhere! I do LOVE white lights too, but this year I went in the opposite direction! Big, colorful bulbs! 
Bright side - I love the look. Down side - they are HOT (makes me a bit nervous)!
Christmas Tree 2010
I saved some big bulbs for the mantle! Here are a few of my favorite ornaments - here and here! And here is our Tiny Toy Tree! It's not 100% finished yet!
We took a break, made pizza, and had s'mores!! I ate way toooo many! 
Christmas Tree 2010
We needed a ladder to put the topper on! I want to make a new star, that one was just one I had when I had my white Christmas tree! Any good star topper tutorials!? Oh and I'm making a tree skirt tonight! I think I had a pattern in one of my sewing books! I need to double check! 
There you go! This is our festive Christmas tree! Full view here

How's your decorating coming along?

I love the tree! And that you roasted marshmellows in your fireplace. Too cute!

Okay... so I hear ya on the big lights. I love the way they look but I get paranoid too. Just make sure you unplug them every night:) I sound like Mags probably huh? Ha!

My sister-in-law just used wired ribbon to make a bow, then hid some lights behind it to light it up. Super simple but I was surprised at how cute it turned out.

Very cute decorations! I wasn't going to decorate this year, but I have been encouraged to by my family. I think I just might.

I am also on the hunt for a good tree topper craft. Mine right now is a paper angel, but I prefer Stars and something homemade.
