[quote=snazzy]when we do the ecclectic tree its neat to take all the older ornaments form xmases past and remember how the tree looked or everyone gathered around for xmas dinner that year. now the problem is finding room for all those decorations. they are accumulating. i even have some that my grandparents used on their tree from the 60s.[/quote]

wow! would love to get my hands on vintage ornaments like that snazzy. can't wait to see pics of your tree. what a great tradition to pass on to your kids.

You can do what my mother started doing a few years ago.  She has TONS of holiday decorations, way too many to display at once.  So, she had my sister and I come over, and spread every single decoration out on the floor.  She took a select few items and put them aside to be displayed every year.  The rest got split up, and put into boxes labeled either "X-Mas ODD" or X-Mas EVEN".  This year, she'll drag the "EVEN" boxes down.  Next year, the "ODD".

My brother and I are in our 20's, my mother still does that.  She's so sweet.  But I really think it's a secret way of her distracting us from taking our childhood ornaments away from her collection lol

I've never seen an upside down tree and I love it already!  How different :) That looks fun!

For the past two years,

Our style has been:  Real tree, noble fir, flocked (has that glitter look to it), different shades of blue, white, silver ornaments, blue and white lights, even the personal ornaments are turning towards the blue theme.  Our family room turns into a winter wonderland.  Everything themed glittery blue and silver, wreaths, bows, and all.  It's the closest I get to a snowy christmas :p

The rest of the house is decorated traditionally, reds, golds, greens.  I love christmas

Re: O'Tannenbaum: What's Your Tree Style?

One year we had just moved into our house 3 days before Christmas so we ran to the tree lot and told the kids they could pick whatever tree they wanted. There were slim pickins and we ended up with a 4 foot tall and 4 foot wide tree flocked PINK. They said since it was their choice and they would never get this opportunity again we were getting a pink tree...and we did.

How do you do this? Is it suspended from the ceiling or through a support pole on the floor? 

 

Really lovely. :)

mine? it was manufactured that way. just like a regular artificial tree, it has a 12"x12" flat metal base plate it screws into. comes in 3 sections. folds/collapses for easy storage. pre-lit. our intent was to hang it from the ceiling this year but we moved. my foyer ceiling height now is 30', so it'll be an issue getting it to hang there.

here is my entry. the newspaper just replied back saying it was "accepted."

hammacher schlemmer sells them, but they sell out months in advance. next year i want this red one for my foyer.
