Christmas trees can’t sit in a corner all by themselves. One of the reasons we have Christmas trees is to dress them up to make them look pretty and every year we want to make them just that little bit prettier.
The standard Christmas tree decorations include tinsel, baubles, little figurines, lights and either a star or an angel to adorn the top. Christmas tree lights provide the show but it is the baubles that really make the difference.
Baubles are bright and shiny and provide the perfect surface for Christmas lights to bounce off of. In fact, you don’t even need Christmas lights. Your normal household lights provide a glittering effect as the light bounces off the baubles. If there is the slightest air movement your baubles will swing further, adding to the light show.
Baubles used to be fairly staid Christmas decorations. They came in a basic set of red, green, white/silver and gold. These days, you name a colour and I am sure there will be a bauble that comes close to matching it.
Today’s picture features the black/pewter coloured baubles. Like the complete bauble range, they are available in a number of sizes, shapes (they are not all round) and shades. The black baubles are available in shades from grey through to deep shiny black.
Have a look at the range of baubles available and get ready to spruce up your Christmas tree – and what better tree to decorate? A Norway Spruce, of course.
