Oh Crispy Tree, Oh Crispy Tree...

To take down the tree, or not take down the tree?  That is the question.  I pose another long do you leave your tree up and is yours fake or is it real and fabulous?

I have yet to hop on the fake fir wagon.  I love the smell of a real, albeit dying, pine in my living room.  I do not live for the pine needles that this non-domestic diva has to continually clean up.  I went the Costco route last year and could not have been more pleased with my real tree.  The $60 price tag was even more reason to love it.  This year was a no-brainer - Costco again, only this time to the tune of $45!  Little did I know that in two weeks we'd have a Crispy Tree rather than a Christmas Tree, propped up and waiting for an open flame.  So now I definitely won't have a tree for New Year's and I'm contemplating taking it down as early as tomorrow.

I would love to know if you still go the real route or if you fake it.  Oh and where can I get the best fake tree?  Costco?  Sam's Club?  Ballard Designs?

  1. Take it down, STAT! And next year, order yourself a perfectly loverly so-realistic-no-one-knows-its-faux tree from Balsam Hill. :)
