I try to keep it simple but elegant.
Boy-howdy would you look at the packages under that tree!
Christmas bush sounds like a variation of No Shave November
Which one? Thanks to my wife we have 4 7ft trees up in our house and a couple 4ft trees as well. I live in a damn forest this time of year
Decorating is really fun
I’m just dying over this tree. Not sure I have ever seen a round Christmas tree before. Will say I really like those chairs though.
Don't have a full pic. Just the one my wife texted me complaining that I put all the candy canes in one spot. Nothing is ever good enough for that woman
Will hopefully post on Sunday. My family has a great tradition we each have a unique Santa that my parents bought us when we were born, and this year we bought one for my daughter to go on the tree to keep the tradition going.
edit: big pic
I think we have too many ornaments but I can’t complain because she did all the decorating.
What a beautiful tree, devine
Having volleyballs hanging on the tree does make it feel crowded.
I'm super salty about our tree this year. We have our standard keepsake and decorative ornaments but the winner of the UF fsu football game gets to add team color ornaments . First year of orange and blue and it hurts
We had a huge Douglas Fir last year because we had like 20-foot ceilings. The citrus scent those things give off is great.
If she wants to wrap presents already, she can go right ahead.
11.5 foot Frasier Fir from NC. smh at all these fake trees.
The kids get so excited. We’re you ever a child?
Why does the photo have the resolution of an Impressionist painting
It was taken at night?
not nearly enough ornaments.
Or is the tree too big?
Makes you wonder.
bigger tree= more ornaments. though it sees you got a 20 foot entrance. should have done it really big.
I told the guy at the Xmas tree farm I wanted the biggest tree they had and he said they have some 15 footers but it takes 8 guys to move a tree that size. Didn’t seem right to me because I moved the 11.5 foot tree by self (admittedly it was very heavy and difficult by myself). He said for every foot over 11 they grow exponentially from a width standpoint which contributes much more to the weight than the height.
I don’t have 8 friends so I went with the 11.5 footer.
Don’t have 8 friends....
I would have simply posted on Nextdoor to scrape up some volunteers.
What could possibly go wrong?
We specifically designed the semi-circle cove framed by the spiral staircase as a place for the tree. It was a nice halfway point between the front of the house (so it could be seen from the street) and the living room (where we open presents).
Those with a big house know you can’t have it both ways.
Here’s a picture from the opposite direction where you can appreciate the dichotomy created by our bridge on the 2nd floor balcony (which leads to the veranda):
You've easily got a 9/10 Christmas bush imo
I have to give credit where credit’s due, that’s the nicest entryway I’ve seen in a double wide this side of the Red River.
Why is that yard decoration in the house?
Can you really call a 90* turn a spiral staircase?
Tree is nice but love the floor
Which one? The snowman?
Yes the snowman
You frame a semi circle with a spiral?
A semi-spiral staircase, yes.
The snowman is definitely indoors. The material is made of a high end sheen covered in micro-glitter. It wouldn’t last a single night in the Texas Hill Country. He’s my kids’ 2nd favorite decoration behind the inflatable Santa on a helicopter outside.
