I put up my pink tree today. This year I decorated it with purple ornaments that I had run across this summer at a garage sale; then I added some white balls that I tied with pink chenille ties. I nestled angels & a ballerina in the branches. I put a small umbrella on the table on one side & family 1950 star burst ornaments on the other side. No lights. The tree top was made in Romania but bought at a Woolworth's Dime Store not too long before they closed forever. I will refine it as I go along & maybe add some more embellishments. Trevor had to check it out. The tree was originally a Barbie tree from the thrift store where I volunteer. It looks prettier in person. But it is a good example of how with a little treasure hunting, you can have a one-of-a-kind tree. You can adjust it to your own budget too.
