Good morning Shari! Both DH and I grew up with lots of icicles on the tree and even though they are a hassle to get off, I love it!

Hugs, Jackie

When I was putting up a tree, it was lights, ornaments, garland then tinsel.

I used the silver garland and with the tinsel the lights seemed to reflect all over the place......

I grew up with tinsel and loved it but can't do that with the cats now.

I'm more of a ribbon and bead gal.

Boa and a mask? Sounds like a New Orleans themed tree! I bet it's pretty. Merry Christmas!!

My Mom loves tinsel so I grew up with Tinsel - it was beautiful! I have lots of ornaments and feel that tinsel hides them, besides it's too time intense for my taste. I put up a small tree this year (used my fav ornaments - the ones the kids made). Put out my Nutcracker collection and decorated the mantle. That's it for us. Actually, I'm sort of a Christmas Deco Slacker. LOL. I like decorating but not when you have to pack it all away in a couple of weeks. What was the question??? LOL!!

Neither have a small tree 4ft, decorated w/small teddy bears & some fav small ornaments from yrs past, but when I did use one or the other, tinsel was what we did....remember we had icicles always so guess my mother's favorite.

Think w/small trees, either obstructs ornaments, too, Shari.

Hope everyone enjoying getting ready for Christmas,
