The theme was Chinoiserie meets Tony Duquette - thus the sunburst topper and ornaments, and "coral" accents behind the plates.
I didn't realize until I looked at photographs from 2011 that this tree was MUCH bigger than last year. It's a table top tree in the fullest sense: it takes up the entire table. But, I had to have enough room for all my fun ornaments, especially since I keep finding more, and in the most unusual places. I discovered these fine fellows for sale at the Warner Theater, when I went to see Septime Weber's The Nutcracker (they are of course, from the Tea Dance).
A close up of some "coral" - also known, at the Hobby Lobby, as "glitter branches."
