Only a woman who makes and sells modern Christmas trees for a living would force her poor family to put the tree up BEFORE thanksgiving – for goodness sake. My husband, daughter and I just moved a few months ago to a great mid century home. I’ve been dying to see how our aluminum Christmas tree would look against the bare wooden walls.
My family was so kind to me. My husband and I pulled our flat packed, space saver Christmas tree out of the garage and had the tree up in about 15 minutes (granted, he’s done this a few times now – so he’s a pro). But then, he started playing around with this old can light that we’d put in the living room – and it looks so great! I love the way the up-light really makes the aluminum spirals pop – and the shadows on the ceiling are out of this world. We love it! We haven’t decorated the boing yet (heck, we don’t even have art up on the walls yet) but still – we love the look of our very modern Christmas tree in our warm, old mid century home.
