4th of July Tree-2016

I had a few new additions and ideas for the 4th of July Tree this year. Couldn't wait to try tucking an old string of red, white and blue lights into the wire basket, it created a soft glow and really looks neat! I set the basket on a well worn Ralph Lauren flag placemat. Also used some old, very thin tinsel on the branches and loved the way a breeze gave the tree a little sparkle and movement.

New ~thrift store~ ornaments included the flag balls and of course the parachuting Santa.
(Good pictures were a little hard to get this year, but this is how the tree looks today.) 

An earlier pic-standing tall, patriotic and perky.

So that's my little tree for 2016. 

There's always a chance I'll add to it if I find something fun...

Like right now these little cupcake toppers are calling to me saying they'd like to be crafted into RW&B ornaments... 
We'll see:@)

Happy ~nice long~ 4th of July Weekend everyone-enjoy!
