Love it or Hate it, you just might have to… Set up a Christmas Tree.
Whatever the case, the process is pretty much the same. First you need a tree. Then you have to get it to actually stand up straight (note to amateurs… if your ceiling is only 8 feet tall, do not buy a 13 foot tree). When it comes time to set up your lights, don’t get frustrated! Just try to get the colors mixed right and the wires hidden, and leave it at that.
Christmas Depot has some great deals on lights if you are in the market.
Ornaments define the energy of a Christmas tree and many times, reflect the warmth and spirit of the people decorating it. Some of the best Christmas trees have a great mix of store-bought and homemade ornaments. For some great ideas on making your own ornaments, go to FamilyFun.com and check out some of their suggestions. For the other ornaments, check out RedEnvelope.com (We really like their Wish Ornament and their Baby’s First Christmas Ornament Kit).
Check my special category for Christmas for other great stores and great deals.
Happy setting up and shopping to all..
