I love these banners! They're lightweight enough to hang almost anywhere, we put them in the tree but they also look great on a tablescape, in a wreath, hanging from a porch light outside.
I also like to mix up the textures on the tree, lots of glitter, glass, paper, velvet, feathers, and just a mix of items. We tucked in some white owls along with the beautiful vintage-style glass bells.
It took about 4 hours, 3 people, and 500 ornaments to decorate this tree.
Here's the tree all lit up at night. Pretty wonderful!
