One of my friends did that when we were in junio high school.... started with the lights first... we had to move all the bulbs.........then the ornaments.

Well.........the next morning she woke up find that her older brother had changed the tree to mixed as usual overnight. Ooo... she was furious! It was her year to decorate the tree.

I saw a tree like that on Pinterest, except they had all the colors of the rainbows. As soon as I have the room for a second tree I'm going to get the ornaments to do a tree like that. All my Christmas decorations now are Red, white, silver, and wooden, so I wouldn't want to buy all new decorations to go with the new rainbow tree theme, but it just looks so neat.

Yep, that's a fail. But the creator apparently enjoys it and that's all that matters.

In this case I'm the creator, this year I'm trying to steer away from faux greenery and go for the sparkles and I like the way its turning out it just needs some fine tuning. I'm out shopping for red shades today or if that fails HL has self adhesive shades that I can cover myself.

I agree, red shades would transform it.

I vote to change the shades too, or if you are crafty just cover the shade with Christmas fabric and then buy new for year round.

I may be possible just to hold the cover fabric temporarily with basting glue until the end of the holidays.

Got my little tree today - a 5-foot balsa fir. It's cooling its heels in a bucket of water in the mud room until I can clear a space for it in the living room. This is the part of Christmas decorating I don't like, LOL - the cleaning.

Cut a nice blue spruce yesterday and bought it inside yesterday evening, (which turned out to be a good decision as it snowed all day today). Got the lights on and half a length of garland before I cut my foot on a broken light bulb. Blood everywhere, first aid administered, foot elevated and now sitting with a nice glass of whiskey.

Tree 1 - Jan 0 ... round 2 commences tomorrow

I love blue spruce for a Christmas tree - my parents always had one when I was young. $$$$$, though!

Hope your foot is better today ...

I had a similar contest during my decorating yesterday - Dining room floor 1, shepherd from nativity set, 0. A little glue and he's fine, although he'll tilt to the right for the rest of his life.
