      I"m allergic to pine trees, too, so I sympathize with that. I get my fill with the pine smell pumped out of the fake tree in Town Square at Disneyland. It smells enough like Christmas!

      I have a 3' little silver tinsel tree, with sparse branches that are good for hanging big, heavy ornaments on. I usually decorate it with miniature candy canes, and mini blue/green balls.

      BUT I KIND OF NEED THIS:

          The tree in Town Square is real, actually. But I suppose you don't get an allergic reaction from being exposed to it for about four seconds.

          But that Charlie Brown tree is absolutely adorable, haha.

            I"m allergic to pine trees too, so I sympathize with you on that one. I definitely miss that good ol' pine smell at Xmas time-- and the bronchitis, flu, and strep throat that came with it! But the tree in Town Square smells like the real thing, and I get to walk past that eight times a week, so that's enough for me.

            And that little tree is the one from Charlie Brown Xmas!!

            And my tinsel tree is only 3', so it's nothing too exciting. Just a good little tree for a 19 year old. The big tree is in momma's living room.

              Er, well it must be fake at the bonttom, because I've walked right up to it and it sure ain't real. And there ain't no pine needles. At least this year, it is fake.

                  No, it's completely real, this year as well: http://www.laughingplace.com/Lotion-View-150.asp

                  It's just spray-painted and balmed and Lord knows what else.

                    Ahh... it's weird, it feels fake... it feels like it's been coated in a layer of wax or soemthing.

                      I am so grateful that I live in the Northwest and can have a real tree! We go and cut our own every year. It is so weird to me to think of having a fake tree!

                        Having a real tree is a great thing, but believe it or not it gets dry up here and that is why we no longer go to the tree lots or farms anymore. We have had trees really get dry to the point that we could have had a fire. And to many ornaments! I miss the smell of the fresh tree, and installing it, takng care of it, (Water, sugar,etc.) I think both are a great choice.
                        I would rather have real as an alternative for sure, but not practical in my case.

                          I was starting to feel out of the loop
                          We get real trees. The boys and I LOVE to go and pick out our tree every year. We always cut an inch of the bottom of the tree and replenish the water daily, sometimes twice a day, and we've never had a drying out problem(knock on wood!!)
                          We also don't have a theme(see out of the loop ) It's covered with ornaments that the boys have picked out, TONS of Disney ornaments that we get annually, and the ornaments that I've gotten the boys annually(they get one every year) ornaments that were mine when I was little and some plain ones and just fun ones. We always use mini colored lights, as many as possible :razz: and beads and tinsel, we always have that gaudy silver tinsel. I just love it!!

                          The boys have a small Disney tree(like the pink princess ones)that has "toon town" around the base and cute mini disney ornaments. They love it.

                          I would love to have a theme tree but I'll wait until the boys are older or I have a house where I can have more than one large tree.

                            :yea: I am so glad to see so many people here that :love: their trees :clap:

                            We haven't put our tree up yet but will be doing it on Wednesday after the kids half day of school. We usually put it up on Thanksgiving morning but since we're going out this year I think we'll do it a day early

                            I cannot wait.... Our big tree is all snowflakes, blue/white lights and silver then the kids tree is colored lights and a zillion ornaments ~ some from when I was a kid. This year we got a deal on a 3ft tree so we're going to let each of the kids decorate their own trees. Guess DD will be asking for pink and purple lights :lol:

                            Happy Tree decorating everyone :clap:

                              My brother in law has his childhood silver tree, complete with color wheel, vintage! I'm so jealous. His mom even shipped it out here from Ohio for him.

                              My sister HATES it! So now they have a deal to alternate- one year real and green, one year silver.

                              I myself bought a really cute Martha Stewart tree last year. It's about 4 feet tall and has red berries and some flocking on it to look wintery. And it came in it's own base that looks like a planter box. I'd love a real tree, and we've done it in the past, but it's so messy and our living room is so small that we've downsized. I hang a real pine garland and/or wreath for the smell instead.

                                Here's a question:

                                Do you use the same ornaments every year, or do you change it up?
