Decorating a Christmas tree can be so much fun and each year in our house, we make things even more special with fresh new colour combinations. For us, this tradition has been going on for quite some time, so as you can imagine, we have a growing assortment of different coloured baubles.

For starters though, you can't go past the basic colours of silver, gold and red. With any of these shades, its easy to add your own unique touches to a tree and create almost any theme you like. The kids can get involved too so why not choose your favourite colour combo and save a few dollars along the way with my simple hand made decorations.
