Although I do not have a silver tinsel retro tree, I thought it would fun to reproduce the "feel" of those vintage days. Therefore, I choose to use burlap, dried hydrangeas, apples, peppermint candy canes and red and white gingham to match the vintage Christmas tablesetting I created in honor of the "good old days." (Please see the picture of the vintage Christmas tablesetting under the "Tablescapes" category.)
The tree came pre-wired with white light. So, throughout the house, I also added garland wired with colored Christmas lights. There is something nostalgic about the multi-colored lights. It really added to the feel of the years gone by. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Merry Christmas and many, many blessings to you and your family.
