    New thread in preparation for all of 2014's fabulous trees!! :)

    cartoon-christmas-tree.svgChristmas_tree-sm.jpgcartoon-christmas-tree.svgChristmas_tree-sm.jpg

    The three tree rules:
    • Do not quote pics!
    • Images must be under 800 pixels wide and try to embed! Imgur.com is recommended.
    • Minimum relevant discussion is okay, but "nice tree" type posts will just be deleted.
    Tree Archive- All this forum's beautiful trees from yesteryear to inspire you:

    2009
    2010
    2011
    2012
    2013

    At the end of this year we will copy/merge 2014's trees back in with the giant tree megathread. This way we keep all our old Christmas trees in the same place. :)

    Putting tree up on Sunday but just wondering is it only pictures of trees that can be posted here or can we put up pics of our other decorations?

    I guess you should get Posy to give the proper go ahead but what me and a few people did last year was post the pic of the tree and then under that have some other decorations.

    I guess you'll need Posy to though for sure though! :pac:


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 26,589 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Posy


    Yes; what Alan said- decorations permissible (in moderation) :p when we've seen your tree!

    Disappointing you can't see all the lights, the "expert" decoration by the kids is obvious though.

    We usually get A big real tree, but this year we decided to try one of the fake ones from Argos. It's much smaller than I'm used to but I think it looks quite well considering the price!

    Putting the tree up really is the best.

    It doesn't look like it in the photos, but the room is really cosy and Christmassy. It's just not possible to capture it all in a photo! Our mantelpiece lights aren't working at the moment so it will have to do as it is for the moment.


  • Registered Users Posts: 851 ✭✭✭ gidget


    Here's our one that went up yesterday! It really has seen it's day now that it's the 17th year putting this one up. Next year hopefully i'll get my wish & put a real one up

    Are you planning on surviving this Christmas?! :p
