I'm very excited. we bought a new artificial Christmas tree at the weekend. It's a 6.5 ft slim design. we have a tiny front room and previously we could only fit a 4ft tree in the space, because taller trees usually mean wider at the base. Our old tree was so small that we didn't have many decorations so now I can buy some more! I'm planning on having red, gold, champagne and silver colours.

I need a new tree.
We have a 7ft one, which is a few years old now, and a bit tatty looking. May get one in the sales.
Our colours are pink, purple, silver and black.
We should have a Christmas tree photo share again this year. I love looking at everyone's trees.

Oh yes, I'd like that, need to get some inspiration. apart from lights and bubbles what other decs do people use?

I am a sucker for tinsel, and beaded garlands. I have a giant snowflake on top of my tree too. Candy canes, chocolates?

I have silver and white. It's 8ft I think! And it's a beast! So fat. I didn't do it as well last year and limited bottom decs because of a crawling baby. I'm going to do it better this year and can't wait to get it up but here's mine last year -

I'm not sure Carole, the tree sale was online so they may have some decs!
I always but glass baubles because the lights reflect off of yh better! And I cut the beaded garlands to about 6 inch pieces and drape them over the branches to add more.
Ooooo love Christmas!
(My tree is probably boring to most but I love it!)
