Decorates a tree,...
And then buys a new one and switches it out. Unless you are Karen Deborah. It's even better than that. This tree looks real, like a Noble Fir. The color and the branches look very natural, it almost feels natural. I don't know if you can tell from the photos, but there is a HUGE difference between my Charlie Brown tree and this one.
This is the new tree. The lights are off so you can see the tree. The other tree picture was with lights on so be fair. Just check out this amazing tree!
I also went to a great deal of trouble to get it. There was only one left in all of Jackson MS. I know because I checked all the stores here and online. There was one tree on display and the sales people had told me I couldn't buy it. I decided to go to the manager. I told him, "I WANT TO BUY this tree. I don't care if you have a box. I don't care if you don't warranty it. I really want to buy this tree!" I also told him that I had checked the Internet and every store in MS. He looked at me and said, "OK you can have it." GOOD MAN! GREAT MAN! Now that is customer service. Yippeeee!!! OMG now I have to pay for this. Well alright then.
It really wasn't a difficult chore to switch them. Piglet helped me to scoot the little tree very gently out of it's spot. I then put the grande, tres magnificat Noble Fir in place, and then just started moving the ornaments. It didn't take long.
Next, what to do with the Charlie Brown tree? Well, I had an idea. In the south everybody comes in the back door. Your front porch can be decorated to the 9's and look fantabolous; but maybe no one will use the front door. It can happen.
I set up the tree near the back door. It makes the back entrance look very inviting and cozy! We are set up like the Griswolds! We have the decoration thing going on here!
OK so now you know, I set up the tree twice; and yes, I am unique.
Onward to the outdoors.
