The Small White Christmas Tree



Pin It

My Christmas tree is white and small, about 40 cm tall. I never decorate with big ornaments, because it would look too heavy for its delicate branches. Instead, I always choose little ornaments and I put the tree somewhere safe, so that the cats won't choke on the little toys. I love tiny Christmas toys, they are so much better than the usual shiny stuff you can buy in the supermarket!




This year I went with all natural ornaments. Some of them are simply made of straw and bound with a festive red thread. I got them in Germany ages ago, but I still love them. So there you have it: straw angels, snowflakes, little wreaths and even straw hearts for my humble tree. Last year I think I saw something similar on the Ikea website, but never got there to complete my collection.




The straw ornaments were not enough, so I also chose a collection of tiny figurines made of wood and painted red. This is a Spanish collection, entirely handmade! It's got everything, from angels playing the little drum or the clarinet, to Santa riding on ski, an angel riding on a red sledge, another one riding on the tiny toy horse and also a little guy hiding in a red wooden star!








And then there are these evening pics, because everything looks better with the Christmas lights on :)) The string of Christmas lights is also very tiny and simple, almost invisible because of the transparent wire used to make it. This way, you can see the little luminous spots like they were fireflies of winter.

  1. It is quite simple, but also very festive, Meeha! I love that white/red combo, real Christmas colors!
    I love red in wintertime, it gives certain life to it.

    1. Thank you, Ana, many times I think that red is perfect to feed us with extra energy in the long winter nights. I wish we had more red colors for the spring, too, because this is when I've got spring asthenia and feel really, really depressed.... and then comes summer!

    1. Am si un brad verde.... :))

      Cred ca ornamentele fac diferenta, eu m-am saturat de globurile sclipicioase din comert.
