After trying not too make too big of deal I have given in slightly and to make it a bit more special we need a tree. A proper one unlike the poor Frangipani last year
Apart from buying another potted plant, the options are a cut tree or a plastic one. I found this great blog post outlining the pros and cons of each option and had some great ideas at the end
I think with a bit of imagination we can come up with something workable, I'll post back with our results.
* Decorate a houseplant.
* Buy a potted tree that can be planted in your yard after the holidays
* String up lights on a tree in your front yard.
* Build your own wooden tree.
Build your own? now that sounds more like it!
I found these for inspiration, I love this one but have no idea where to get driftwood from here (I had such a large supply when I lived in Newcastle)
and for something different a tree made from 300 recycled water bottles that hangs suspended in the air. It's from an Artist at Paprika
