The tradition in our family is to decorate the Christmas tree on December 2nd. This was my tree from 2013, so check back soon for my 2014 tree. The Christmas tree is usually the focal point of any Christmas decor and also starts many of our family Christmas traditions. I have always decorated my home with reds and golds. I have too much invested to change my colours now, but I always love when I see homes done in blues and silver or the bold colours of purple and lime green. One year I will start from scratch and go with a very rustic theme and hand paint the ornaments. I hope everyone has a joyous season preparing for the Christmas holiday.
