Hi, I'm Colleen Mullaney for ColleenMullaney.com. This year, my girlfriend, Bec, asked me to decorate a little tree for her, because she said, "I have no idea how to put my ornaments on a tree." And, I said, "Of course you do!" It's very easy. You just have to keep a couple of things in mind. First of all, the scale of the tree. Now, this tree is very small. It's for an apartment. But, if you have a larger tree, then you can use really large ornaments. On the smaller tree, try and stay within the scale of the tree. You notice here I have a lot of little ornaments, and just medium size. I don't go to the big big bulbs for this size tree. Now, also keep in mind your theme. Are you going to have - you can be scattered, you can have, you know, ornaments from over the years, you can be kind of like all over the place. Or, you can do a theme like we've done here, with beautiful shades of golds and creams, keeping it all, you know, in that color story, and adding a couple of other shaped ornaments as well to keep things interesting. You see I have some floral boughs here with eucalyptus and orchids, and some beautiful white ribbon. And, also, we have a couple of little pine cone ornaments, which add a nice glisten to the tree. Now, another thing to keep in mind is, for a star or a tree topper, really anything goes. You can have an angel, you can have a star. It can be lit, it can just be, you know, plain. Here we have - I just put a guilded Amaryllis blossom on top, and it really, really - it kind of finishes the tree off so nicely. It's keeping in the proportion, in the theme. It has a little glisten to it. So, it really kind of works well. So, really it all depends on the size of your tree, and color ways, themes, and shapes. And, keep that in mind, and you'll have a beautiful Christmas tree this season. Thanks for watching. I'm Colleen Mullaney.
