I promised to show you some photo's of our tree. As you can see it is very traditional, it is like the tree I grew up with. Even some of the baubles are from my childhood (like the church on the 4th photo).
The only thing that is a huge difference are the lights. This year we bought cluster lights, which are much easier to use. There are over 1600 led lights (with a warm color) on two strands (9m in total) that you can drape on the branches. It looks very fairy like in person, I love it. I made this photo before I put a red drape around the pot.
The nativity is my grandmother's. It is pretty old. The stable is my love's, it belonged to his parents. His mom gave it to us after his dad died.
The needle point Santa was made by his aunt. Isn's it cute.
Do you have a traditional or a modern tree? Leave a link in the comment section, I would love to visit your blog/site to see your photo's.
