Christmas trees – the good, the bad, the UGLY!

Anyone walking past my desk this afternoon would have thought I was having a webchat with a clown and a murderer at the same time! You see, I’ve been searching the web for Christmas tree decorating ideas, and while some of them filled me with festive joy, other so-called ‘best designs’ were enough to make a grown woman/decorating addict weep!

The good Christmas tree

Although I’d like a fuller tree (this one looks like it’s going to get frost-bite!), I adore the cute vintage decorations and homespun style. You can pick up everything for this look at John Lewis.

The bad Christmas tree

Although I’m a fan of all things ‘weird and wonderful’ I’m just not convinced by this alternative Christmas tree. I’m with Casa Sugar on this one, it’s just not … well … Christmassy?

The ugly Christmas tree

Oh my! This is what happens when bad Christmas decorations happen to good trees. I’m sure it works for some people, but do those people have a Lion, a Witch and also a Wardrobe??

p.s Is that actually a STONE HEAD in the middle of this tree? (or am I seeing a ghost?)

    This post made me laugh out loud! That ugly Christmas tree definitely suffers from overkill! LOL. You can’t even see any needles from the tree anymore.

    Thought the “bad christmas tree” was a rocket. Prefer a more traditional tree myself.
