Orange, Aqua, and Plum!

Ah, I love decorating for the holidays!  The decor in our living room changed this year, so I started over with the ornaments too.  So, bring on the orange, aqua, and plum!
The first thing I bought this year were the orange and plum berry picks.  I knew they matched the pillows on my couch and used them as my inspiration for the ornaments.  The aqua and gold ornaments were reused from last year's tree.  I bought ornaments at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Walmart, and Shopko.  The bird above is one of my favorites.I had some smaller berry picks too. I cut off all the berries and used them to fill the small glass balls.

The large multi-colored bulbs were a very happy find at Walmart.  I might have screamed.  Or not.  There were no witnesses.
Photographing a tree is not my strong suit.

The glittery plum balls are another favorite.  Half price at Hobby Lobby.  I love the thick wire wrapping at the top.

I grabbed some pearl gemstones from my scrapbook stash and stuck them to these clear glass ornaments.  Simple.  And I like them.
Here's the topper.  It's a styrofoam ball with berries from those picks stuck in it.  Another simple project.  This photo was taken "in progress" so it's not really so bare there on the back.

I haven't been able to get a good picture of the whole tree.  I'll keep trying.  I really need to get in the habit of using my camera again.

I'm late to the party, but I'm linking up with Thrifty Decor Chick's Christmas tree party.
