After the tree is bought and the lights are wrapped around and all the ornaments are put in place my tree is still not done. Not till the next day when I go out and buy some baby’s breath, cut it up and add it to the tree.
I’m not sure how this started but I’ve been doing it since I was a teenager. Now that I have children and I see it through their eyes it is like little snowflakes on our tree. It is a fun job for them to help with. Adding baby’s breath is also a great way to fill in the random gaps here and there on a natural tree.
I love the ribbon look as well. The problem is so do my children, which means the ribbon is pulled and played with. I might have to wait a few years on that one.
