Enchanted Forest

That is the theme of our Christmas tree, this year and last. We have a bejeweled star on top that doubles as a snowflake and something else. The jewels are topaz... we also have little jewels hanging all over the tree, that are also topaz. Little red birds with sparkly red chests (typing out breasts didn't sound so good for some reason). Different ornaments ranging in size, that are matte and shiny in dark purple, copper, red and magenta. Little fairies tucked away in dark gold and purple. I really like it.

Next year however we will have to something more masculine, like blue. More blue says Nathanael. I am already planning on it. We will still use our bejeweled star/snowflake, the copper and gold ornaments, only we'll add blues- from teal to icy blue to dark and bright blue. It'll be beautiful. I just finished this tree, and I'm already thinking of the next one! I'll post pictures up some time this month.
