In 2005 I began scaling down my Christmas trees & decorations. At that time I had 37 Christmas trees throughout our home. They ranged from 2' to 7.5'
I love REAL trees and greenery, but I rarely use them. I decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving and REAL trees & greenery do not stay fresh to New Years when I take down the decorations.
Sometimes I will add sprigs of fresh greenery into artificial greenery. In 2005 I donated our huge 7.5' FAT Christmas tree. It was so heavy to carry upstairs and it consumed our family room. We now have a 7.5' slim-line tree instead. It doesn't have the same appeal, but it's manageable.
I seem to add and purge a few decorations each year and manage to keep my storage area brimming full.
While some decorations have their annual place of honor, I do enjoy creating different vignettes each year.
