Christmas Decorating, it begins....

I have been asked by a few folks for some tips on how I decorate my trees. the photo above is a single short "garland" of 12 connected poinsettas, that I purchased at Walmart a few weeks ago for only $7.00, a great buy for a hundred dollar look.

On the couch is 4 sets (and a poinsetta bunch of flowers for decorating on my wreaths)

Here is the strip of flowers placed on the tree, I will probably tuck it in a bit more, and then I will add in the other garlands tip to tip, spiraling down the tree in a loose "S" pattern. This is a great thing to do especially if you don't have alot of ornaments yet, because it makes a great "filler".

Now, if you did not want to do the spiral garland look, you can also detach the flower heads and place them evenly thoughout your tree (which I have done with great success too with last years pink tree).

I will post more later, as I progress.

You've got me on the edge of my seat! I can hardly wait to see more. A special thanks for showing us the work in progress. The finale is always above and beyond beautiful. I'll be here waiting for more. Merry Christmas!

Very pretty! I am amazed at the kind of wonderful holiday stuff available at Walmart. Just lovely. I can't wait to see your next pics.

Well I have to say I've never used the poinsettia's before.

Looking forward to the other ideas.
