Trim the Tree Thursday is sponsored by Brett at The Hostess With the Mostess. Brett is amazing at planning and organizing for entertaining.
For this week’s post I will show my angel tree, which I did for many years. It stood in front of the window in the living room. It is a 7-foot tall artificial tree with wide full branches. It is lit with clear mini lights - a 140-string set with programmed flashing, and a 100-string with steady lights. Gold bead garlands are crisscrossed over the branches. The angel ornaments are supplemented with ivory, peasant blue and peach glass ball ornaments. The colors pick up those in the draperies and upholstery.
Over the years I had collected many different angel ornaments. I gathered quite a number of Renaissance type angels made of plastic with cloth garments.
I bought several each in blue robes, in red, in ivory, in blue green, and one each in gold and purple. These angels were placed strategically across the tree to give it visual rhythm. Other angels were filled in throughout the branches.
Thank you for letting me share one of my favorite trees. For more Trim the Tree posts see the list at Brettinsky’s blog.
