    image.jpg I like to space the decorations out a little bit. Ya know, appreciate the natural beauty of the tree itself.
    My fiancé has BOXES of decorations and likes to spend hours filling each empty space witha ball or icicle or snowflake or whatever.
    Anyways, this was what we compromised at. What's YOUR Christmas style?

    I was looking for one of those small trees that you take out of the box and it has the lights already, you just plug it in, leave it on a table. My parents have some plant in their house and my mom just put lights on it. Unless you have kids, putting up a tree and decorating all for one month is a pain and pointless.

    My tree is so pathetic, I will not even post a pic haha. It's just a three foot tree. But it's just me here on X-Mas, so no real need for a tree. :dontknow:

    Same approach, only I'm not big on compromising. Mine is deep, rich reds, gold and a soupçon of a dusty,navy blue that runs through the old wood ornaments. Can you tell I'm insane?

    I like that, very simple, very elegant, most people just add as many decorations as they can.

    The youngest chooses the tree. In her eyes, it should fill the room and touch the high ceiling. But do anything to get it from field to stand, then stand to rubbish pile? Oh, never.

    FML, and to all a Good Night.
