The Chartreuse Trimmed Tree

My Christmas tree is trimmed in chartreuse and colors in it's palette. It is a 9 foot tree with 900 lights. I have been using this color for a couple of years and even though it is a bit unusual and not the traditional colors of red, I get a lot of compliments on it. The tree is Arapahoe pine.





I do have many of my Christopher Radko ornaments on the tree. I collected them for several years but most of mine are retired now.





This is one of my hand-painted glass ornaments and the leaves seem to go well with the chartreuse colors.


No tradition topper for this tree, instead lots of chartreuse glittered pieces were added. Glitter is everywhere when my husband and I decorate the tree. We end up with glitter on us too.

Thanks for stopping by to see my Chartreuse Trimmed Tree - Judy. I am participating in the Christmas Blogger Block Party and linking this post to 2805.
