A few years ago my mom bought a few silver Christmas trees, which look phenomenal adorned with vintage Christmas ornaments. Her tabletop tree is 4 feet tall and is adorned with stunning retro glass ornaments. I can’t think of anything prettier than this magnificent tree filled with ornaments. If you have a gorgeous collection of ornaments, you will absolutely adore a sparse Christmas tree as it highlights baubles beautifully!
