Do you have a mixture of ornaments or are they all uniform? We have turqoise and silver bulbs and the rest are special ornaments that we pick out every year. Sports ornaments for my husband. Ornaments the girls pick out and one of my own. =)

We've always had a mix--old glass ornaments from when my mom was a kid, ornaments my sister and I made as kids, stuff from the Hallmark store, the ones that used to come free on top of a tube of candy. We're still trying to avoid breakable ornaments. The cat hasn't tried to climb the tree this year, but she hasn't grown out of trying to play with the stuff on the low branches.

We had random ornaments on our tree for about a day. Then the cat and my son started pulling and knocking them off. So I took them all down. We just have lights on the tree for this year.

Most of our ornaments have a snowy white look, but we also have a few random colorful ones.

We have all old fashioned nature type ornaments on our tree. It looks like it should be in the log cabin that I hope to own someday.

When I had my own tree I used pinecones and gingerbread people with lots of burgundy bows. I also had all the special ornaments of the kids' from their school projects. It looked pretty uniform and cozy. S/o's mom just uses random ornaments she's had for years on a pre-lit (multi-colored) tree. It's ok but looks really random.

I guess you could say I have an eclectic tree with all kinds of different stuff on it. My girls are in their late 20's and early 30's and I still have all of the ornaments that they made when they were in school, scouts, etc. I also have ornaments that go back to the early 1900's when my one uncle was a little boy, and some handpainted glass bulbs from another relative from the same era. I have ornaments that survived my childhood, and ones I've made throughout the years. There's silver bows made from the ribbon from my one daughter's wedding, and handblown glass bird (in a real nest) that was another relatives. (The bird in a nest is a German custom of our families. Each year I make a new ornament to commemorate something that happened that year (ie: got a new dog, etc.) I guess you could call my tree a tree of memories of Christmas's past. My older relatives love looking at all the ornaments and remembering.
