Yep...finally! The living room tree is up and the coffee table at least has a sort of center piece. I used the lower brances I had cut from the tree, trimmed them and added silk poinsettia's. It will do. I never did get that coffee table painted...ah well...next year! :)
I am adding very SHEER PINK BOWS to the tree...just ran out of steam for the moment...

Yes, I did a plate tree. I had so many extra plates stacked in my cabinet...figured I might as well use them. :) My sweet husband is ..sort of..looking at me funny!
Please notice that I used as snow under my plate tree, a little hand made quilt by A STITCH IN THYME. I thought it added a softness with it's tiny rosebuds...
TIP: I used the LARGE paper clips to hang the plates. I've had some questions on this so am adding this. I opened the clips and used the large end to attach the plate to the tree and the small end to the plate holder. This way you can attach deep in the tree to the large branch..NO sagging and no danger of a broken plate! :)
I had the worst time getting a picture that was not blurry! I finally HAD to use the flash..
I hope you like my tree! (I hope, I hope!)
A few more photo's. Now...on to the live tree... :) Tis the season... :)
I love you guys!
