My 2011 Christmas Tree!

I cannot believe it is the first week of December can you? I hope January and February go by just as fast….which never happens at least here in Pa! Christmas day will be here before we know it!
Here is my tree for 2011. The same as last year but added three new ornaments, just couldn’t resist and I’m sure you know what I mean. Took me a couple days to get the look I wanted and I’m really happy with it!
I followed a tutorial on Pinterest that showed you how to take pictures of your tree at night and the pictures are better than last years I think.
The silver bow on the very top is from Big Lots!
Every ornament on there is from the Dollar Tree except for a few!
Even the pretty white stocking hanging from the mantel is from there but I added some bling by putting a rhinestone broach on it.
I ordered the sheet music from Pottery Barn and got eight for $6.00, they are nice a sturdy and they don’t bend at all!
I love the JOY ornaments from DT and I think they added something special to the tree!
These were different…black with colored glitter on them I only bought two boxes because I didn’t want alot of them on the tree, just a few here and there.
I have to have garland on my tree so last year when I saw the glitter bead garland I snatched it up.
This is my favorite ornament out of them all, I think I paid 8 or 9 for it. At first I didn’t see it when I opened the box here it was wrapped in tissue paper and was at the bottom of the box.
All the pretty silver boxes and the black patterned one are from DT too, even the wired ribbon.
Well, I better get off here, we are going out to celebrate my buff's husbands birthday tonight.
Here are some great parties to attend and have fun at, I know I’m late for them but I’m still not feeling 100% yet:
Wow Us Wednesday
Potpourri Party
Inspiration Party
Flaunt it Friday
Show and Tell Friday
Open House Party
Frugal Friday

Very pretty and you did well at the Dollar tree...I love the little gift boxes! The sheet music looks great, too!

Can you pass on some of the tips you learned about taking night pictures? My tree always looks like it has monster stars on it instead of lights!! lol!
