I put up a full-sized Christmas tree for the first time in about five years. I decided to go with a theme inspired by Lothlorien.



Although Galadriel doesn't reside at the top of the tree, I have this pretty angel. She dictated the color scheme.


So to evoke Lothlorien, I went with swans and other things from nature, with glitter for that magical Elvish quality.






I added crystals from an old chandelier


Frodo and Gandalf are here, too


Tree skirt



This has been a great season. My family doesn't spend lots of money on gifts, and it creates a more relaxing Christmas for everyone. I've done some fun things. I went to a "Merry F**ing Holiday party." When you party with geeks, the gifts are way cooler:

Zombie Survival kit


I also attended the Burning River Brass concert at Painesville United Methodist Church in Ohio. They have a beautiful pipe organ.


And I saw B.E. Taylor's Christmas concert


Merry Christmas and happy holidays, everyone.

Very pretty Christmas tree. I like how yours has an overall theme. Ours is just a bunch of random ornaments we've collected over the years.

The geeky Christmas party sounds fun.

Hope you have a Merry Christmas. ♥

I have many random ornaments I did not put up (way too many, actually). I've always wanted to do a theme and carry the angel's colors throughout the rest of the tree.

Merry Christmas to you, too!
