  • Show us your trees!!!

    December has started. Christmas is on it's way, why not show off your trees to everyone else on the forum? Do you follow a colour scheme or do you go more random? Do you change your colours each year? Real or artificial?

    To start you all off here is my contribution to the trees of the forum:

    The family tree is a 6ft slim artificial tree. We don't have oodles of space in our house and real trees often have a wide spread which is no help to us! I need the height for all the decorations I have (lots bought from my holidays).

    My daughters tree. She's 3 and has a 3ft artifical tree. Basically it's probably over 10 years old and looks a little tatty (but not once it's covered with tinsel!)

    Our tree doesn't go up until Christmas Eve...once all the shopping, cleaning and general chaos is done, then its time for the tree and that signals the start of Christmas in our house...our tree carries the weight of years of decorations,many handmade, some patched to within an inch of their lives, but every one tells a story or has a memory attached and it is possibly the least colour co-ordinated or themed tree on the planet...but we love it.

        Soon! Soon!! I'm beginning to be excited!!! Maybe we'll get the tree this week, rather than this weekend.

          My family do not get into the xmas spirit at all, except for the eating and drinking side of it, so the tree was usually put up at the last minute by me just to make a bit of an effort. Last year, having chucked out my ancient artificial tree, I bought a new one. It is one of those white and silver spiral 'pop up' trees with the baubles already on it. You just put up the straight stand and hooK the top to it and there you are, instant xmas.!! This year I have also got some window stickers so hopefully it will be looking a bit more festive.

            This will be the third year that we have been away for Christmas, All my decorations are in the loft and I miss them. I have gathered them over the years, some from different countrys',some that I just loved. I don't have any flashy neon type decorations, but I do seem to have lots of Santa's, Anyway next year I have told Gordon "We are staying at home" Keep posting pictures of your trees as I love to see a nice tree (sad aint I)

                I love this time of year and decorating the tree is always my domain. Great idea for a thread...just have to wait until I put mine up before I can post any pics.

                      Just got the tree! It's around the side of the house in a big tub of water.



                      It's in excellent shape, and the guy had just hosed it off, so it's not dusty. We'll take the red netting off in a minute and let the branches come down. We have to get it in the stand and in the house by the time the grandkids get here tomorrow afternoon. They will want to decorate as soon as they get here, so I'm going to buy a few inexpensive baubles. The treasured ornaments will be brought out in a week or so. I'm thinking about your idea, Indri, and might just get a small one for them to have as their very own, in another room.

                      We also got two red cyclamen and a poinsettia. Now I need to find those green and red baskets...

                        Ooh lovely real tree!! And lovely poinsettia. We have an ancient red cyclamen in our house. My dad bought it for us when we first moved in and it certainly thrives on my very random care!!! Flowers loads!!

                        You'll have to post a pic of the tree again once it's decorated
