I’m thinking it’s a beauty and a cutie, both on one tree in the Christmas Gallery. Every tree needs both large and small decorations, as well as sizes in between, for balance and a pleasing aspect.
This distressed-finish [red lantern] is a foot tall (without the handle), and can be used indoors or out. We’ve added a flameless [burgundy Luminara candle] (not included), and a [plaid ribbon] around the top for a splash of polish and elegance. I’m also kind of mad for [this cardinal ribbon with greetings] and [this cardinal ribbon] in the picture, too!
Just love this tiny little winter scene of a brown budgie perched outside his snow covered bird house. A second bird is hidden behind the tree branch, and a heavy winter frost coats the entire ornament. There is a second style for this ornament; [see them both here.]
Your Christmas tree will be more interesting and pleasing to view if you include ornaments and decorations in multiple sizes – start with the largest items first (three to five as focal points around the tree at different heights), and add more ornaments as you go down in size with each layer of decorations. That’s how a 12″ lantern and a 3″ birdhouse work in concert to make beautiful music on your tree! Okay, I don’t know why I went musical just then, but you get the analogy, right?! It all works harmoniously together.
We hope you’ll share some of your favorite design ideas and elements with us, either by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or come on over and visit [our Facebook page] and share some pictures with us there.
