This year I added vintage tin letters & numbers in silver, red and black to our tree. I already had the tin stars and cookie cutters. A few simple white ornaments and a few vintage teal shiny brights add some contrast. It's traditional, but a bit twisted. A bonus was the educational factor for my son. We asked him "What letter is this? What sound does it make?" and then made up a word to do with our family to go with that letter.
