    Not sure if real tree will last right up until Jan?

    I know exactly the ones you mean Donna . They looked crinkled in the dent . I remember hot pink, royal blue, purple and green colored ones . Glass,shaped like an oval tear drop with frosted snow & glitter . I still have six angels that my grandmother put on her tree . They have little celluloid faces . So Sweet ! And I still have some of my old shiny brite balls .
    I decorated the top of my kitchen cabinets with my Disney Plush Animals, but thats as far as I got . Working on some more this weekend . I do alittle at a time .
    My tree will go up around the 10th to 14th of December . Jim wants a real one this year .

    Ours did last year Jeff, we just made sure it was in a holder where we could put water in, and kept it topped up all the time. The one we put outdoors didn't even look like it had been taken from the ground in January and we left it up for the chickens to play under! :D

    Our local place cuts them freshly every few days which helps as they don't have time to deteriorate first by lying around without water.

    We aren't going out for ours this weekend now either....we have had a ton of snow and even with a 4 wheel drive we're not sure it's a good idea! Might start putting the others decorations up though

    As a child in my parents home, our tree went up on Christmas Eve, but my Mother kept it up until the Feast of the Epiphany. It was always a fresh cut tree.

    Our tree is an artificial tree. We tried a fresh cut here in Florida and it didn't do well at all. We don't have a specific time to put it up, but try to get it up before the week before Christmas. Once in a while we get it up the weekend after Thanksgiving, but won't be doing that this weekend.

    With the boy here we'll make it very festive and party like... treats and hot cocoa (even though it mostly likely won't be cold).

    Favorite decoration? Too hard to pick. We really do love all of our decorations, but tend to gravitate to those that are most whimsical. We have a fairy (male of course ;) ) for the top of our tree. Added him to the mix last year. We didn't want anything conventional.

    We have Disney ornaments, as well as a wide variety of other ornaments and decorations. We don't use garland or tinsel, but Herself covers the tree in enough lights so that you can see our house for at least ten miles at midnight.






    Welcome to our new home! It's a lovely and friendly place. If you haven't joined yet, do register. It's a great place to make friends and share all those Disney secrets!!
