Our Christmas tree is up! It's a tree we bought from Freedom a few years ago and we love it. It has it's own built in lights at the end of the branches and it is all white, it's bendable and doesn't take up much storage space The beauty of this tree for me is that it does not take up our entire floorspace either and I can change the colours of the decorations at minimal expense. Some of my decorations are from the Uk (still with their price stickers on from Snape Maltings!) I also to use crystals from vintage chandeliers for a bit of bling.
We donated our huge green fake cypress tree to the Leukaemia Foundation for their front foyer in one of their Brisbane Villages I set up and was managing at the time. I see it every year, decorated and in pride of place in the front reception area. A good feeling to know that it is being used for the festive season for patients and their families who are going through very traumatic changes in their lives.
Notice the colour combo AGAIN, red , white and aqua? Love it!
