Do You Have An Alternatree?

There certainly is no law mandating that you must have a traditional Christmas tree. If you can pull off a white, black, tinsel, or even an acrylic tree, I say go for it. Whatever floats your ornaments.

Mine's a regular tree but I don't have anything connotating Christmas on it. I have peacock feathers and purple, blue and green lights with tons of crystals only on it.

mine is white with balls that co-ordinate with my living room, then i have various odd decorations... martini glasses, vodka bottles, olives, shoes, guns, peacocks (because i love them!), disco balls, etc. After the season, I will try to find a coloured tree on sale...maybe a pink or blue one...maybe fuscia...not sure yet, and have it a little more streamlines then sparatic. I really like that black tree!

I have a funky little fake tree. It's very cute and it's the perfect size for my apartment.

I too have both, though the 'alterna-tree' is smaller. We have our 7 foot traditional with traditional ornaments... Then I have a pink 3 footer that was bought for me by a friend in England! Covered with pink ornaments- the husband HATES it!

I only have a traditional... but if I ever get a bigger house I would like to get a funky alternative one too!

We have a traditional tree, and it is beautiful! :) My friend has an alternatree and we call it the 'upside-down tree.' You can probably imagine what it looks like from that name alone... it is very odd!

I have a fake tree, but my mom hasn't given to me yet so I dunno what it looks like!

I have an alternatree this year. Its a live potted pine. Just a little one, that I decorated with beads and some light weight ornaments. :)
