Lovely Tree.

My brother in law AB who travels a lot for work sent me this photo of a beautiful Christmas tree in Kaohsiung in Taiwan. I hope that's the right spelling. Throughout the rest of the year they always have a huge arrangement of lilies about the same size on that table and apparently the perfume is amazing.  
Later on in December, because I am quite nosey, I might get readers to send me snaps of their trees and we'll do a post showcasing all the different ways we action our Holiday Trees. 
Happy Saturday.

  1. I will gladly send you a picture of my tree, however it definitely won't be as nice as yours!

  2. FF,
    I finished decorating my tree today. All by myself. Haven't done it by myself since before I was married. My kiddies are all away at college. My daughter won't be back until after Christmas. Little tear in my eye right now. Enjoy your precious boy while he's yours. Of course he'll always be yours, but he'll grow up and fly away like they're all supposed to do, if you do things right.

  3. Great idea - I will definitely join in for the Tree Exhibition!

  4. I have to wait till after my daughter's Sweet 16 birthday party on Wednesday before the tree can go up. Apparently it wouldn't fit the floral vintagey theme she has in mind.

  5. Your tree is still my fave ever. What is your opinion on angels atop trees or should it always be a star. I couldn't find a star that didn't make the top of my tree keel over so have an angel but remain on the lookout for the hilt grail of stars. Would live to see other's trees. I have two - a mini tree of ornaments from our travels and a big Tiffany blue, white and silver tree. Love Kathleen X

  7. Dear FF,
    Oh the excitement. I'm so ready to share my tree and see others.
    That tree is superb.
    My husband worked extensively between here and Taiwan for many years and he said the decorating was amazing.
    Hope the heat is not as revolting as it was yesterday.
    Wishing you a lovely Saturday.

  8. Happy Saturday to you too! I loved seeing everyone's trees on your blog last year, so please do it again this year. It would make a wonderful FF Blog Christmas Tradition.

  9. Thanks for your festive updates. I have been staunchly anti-Christmas for a number of years (except for Carols which I adore), mainly because of not having parents anymore to share it with. I do have a six-year old daughter though so this year I am taking a pro-Christmas stance. Tree is up, wreath is on door, Christmas countdown blackboard and cross-stitched (by sister) advent calendar are on the walls. Still won't embrace mass consumerism and purchase of cheap nasty plastic toys but have finally realised at the ripe old age of 43 that non-cynics have much more fun!

  13. Can't wait to see everyone's trees and what they hang on them. Slim Paley has been drying orange slices to put on hers? Have you heard of this FF?

  14. Tree went up at the crack of dawn yesterday with a very excited six year old. We went to lovely Carols last night beside a lake with a band and then driving home past decorated houses, so lovely. Love this time of the year!

  15. What a great tree. We've just helped put my parentals trees up too. Dads is a little heavy on the tinsel but I've let it slide for the moment. I for one am no fan of tree tinsel.

  16. There is tree angst chez us, my husband threw away our perfectly good faux 6ft tree end of last Christmas, said it had seen better days (huh haven't we all?) Anyways we are now financially embarrassed (broke) so he reckons we are having his mothers old white tinsel tree this year. Over my over 50s withering body say I. I don't do tinsel trees or fibreoptic (his choice if we had any money) I like proper green trees that look like real trees even if they are not. I am going to save up and get a real one and put it up when he is out.
