Our Perfect Christmas Tree

It's just a few more days 'til Christmas, and our perfect tree has been decorated for a few weeks now.  The search started in late November when I ventured to a local tree farm in Okatie, SC.  You have a choice there of Leland Cypress, Red Cedar, or Virginia Pine.  We find that the Va. pine is a good fit for us because they look like old fashioned Christmas trees, and because they look best with our vintage lights and vintage glass ornaments.

Since there is a definite lull in royal wedding activities and in my own wedding business this time of year... thought I would post some pics of our Christmas tree... showing that everyone has a different definition of the perfect Christmas tree.

So, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  Terry.

We really go for the Shiney Brite vintage look on our tree with tinsel garland, bead garland, and the finishing touch of real lead icicles.  The lights are all C7 ceramic and bubble lights, makes it warm and nostalgic in our living room.  And, for the first week or so, the tree gives off this very powerful pine scent... not so much after a couple of weeks have passed.

Enjoy the pics of our perfect Christmas tree for 2011.

Royal tid bit of the day... Christmas trees used at London's Chelsea Hospital are donated by HM The Queen.  The trees are cut from the forests surrounding Windsor Castle.
