Today we were finally able to start decorating our tree. In our house we started a tradition, that most people might not generally do. We decided that each year one member of the family would be able to pick how the tree would be decorated.
So the first year was my husband and he did white and blue so all the ornaments, and decorations on the tree (not the whole house mind you) were blue and white. The next year was Arianna's turn and none of us seem to remember what her tree pick was. Well, more like we have discrepancies, but I plan to look at last year's pictures of the tree and Christmas to reconcile these discrepancies.
This year was Audrie's turn. Usually in the month of December we start asking the next person what their color scheme is. Once it is picked that's it -- you are locked in. The reason is so that we would be able to go out after the holidays and purchase ornaments and items that we might need at a MUCH lower price.
So last year we asked Audrie what color she was wanting to do her tree and she picked purple. I could have told you she would pick purple, but I was hoping she wouldn't. For some reason in my minds eye purple just doesn't seem to "fit" Christmas. Let me tell you. I think I was wrong. Yep, I was wrong. Purple looks awesome. Want to see? Okay, here you go.
Well, that's my Holiday Bliss for today. Do you have a way to keep everyone happy when it comes to decorating and trimming the tree? I'd love to hear.
