Traditional or alternative?



Do you have your Christmas tree up yet? I haven't and for the first time I've been thinking of trying something a little less traditional a bit more alternative.. something like this or maybe like this.. perhaps a poster tree like this! It's not going to happen, our gorgeous granddaughter is coming to stay, this is not the time to be experimenting, it'll be traditional all the way :) Last time I was in the city I fell in love with Anya Brock's, (remember the munching mammals) Christmas tree mural in 140William, it will more than satisfy my need for quirk :) Happy Monday, take care and stay safe... p.s. how about you.. traditional or alternative?

  2. Smart, nice and artistic! I understand that tradition is going to win this Christmas for you and yours. Nothing wrong with that. Just like you I am also thinking new ways with trees and decorations. It is windy and plenty of rain here..... but we have decorated a tree just outside the entrance with lights and we have candles outside. PS. We have treats for the birds, they seem to like that:)

  3. This abstract perspective of a Christmas display seems Christmasy in wide public spaces. I like seeing some experimentation with the Christmas idea here. But at home, I still lean to the traditional icons and colours.

  4. Gracie, I tried non-traditional last year and it was not enjoyable. This year the flocked tree is up and the mantle has garland. I just downsized on the decorations on the tables. I have a red bell wreath on the front door, a huge red ribbon on the side door and am considering a laurel around the front door. Makes me happier. I do like the tree in your photo and wouldn't mind having one like that in my front yard!

  5. This would be nice as an extra. But nothing beats traditional if you ask me.

  9. Traditional for me but I'm not sure if I'll even get to it this year, Grace.

  10. Great work of art. I like the way the graphics and color all combine to make a great decoration.

  11. I do not care much about a Christmas tree, but in case it should be a traditional one...

  12. Oh Grace, it's an interesting tree but I thinks it's going to be traditional for us...

  13. I'm probably heading out tomorrow to find the perfect tree. And, uhm, that'll be a fresh cut tree, Grace. :-)

  14. We have a tree up, but before our children arrived on the scene, we sometimes didn't put one up. Sometimes weren't even home! Have a great week ahead!

  15. I love the Christmas tree mural! Very colorful. My tree might be a little less traditional this year but, I'm not sure what yet.

  16. I like the suspended tree, if you do go down the alternative path.

  17. I’d say go for the suspended 100 ball tree....if you have lots of time to create it. Ours is not traditional...we have a Charlie Brown tree with one red bulb. The picture is fabulous. I adore that tree.

  18. NO, don't like those other Christmas trees, I like the traditional look, but I have to admit I have a plasticky one that lives in a box in the basement for 11.5 months a year. Love the tree in your picture, great colours. What is it made of?

  19. A great street Christmas Tree Grace but it's always a traditional pine in our house.

  20. I rather like the alternate styles more fitting for an Aussie Christmas. We only have a little one with flashing LCD lights. It will have to do for the grand children.

  21. Every year I doubt will I put the tree up or leave it. I have not made up my mind yet....

  22. Oh, Grace, I love suspended one!
    Unless there isn´t one outside with a sign asking if we want to spend Christmas... there won´t be any.

  23. Ah! You got to this one before me! And it's at my work! Too quick ;) I think you should stick with your normal tree personally....

  24. I'll always prefer the traditional Christmas decorations. We're putting up our tree tomorrow.

  25. I like traditional as well as artsy. Why not have a big traditional version and a smaller alternative one?

  26. I prefer the traditional trees, Grace !

  27. So beautiful! Love how colorful it is.

  28. I'm a traditionalist, but I must say that's a jazzy tree!

  29. I am one thousand percent traditional, EXCEPT that in recent years I have gone to an artificial tree. I can give you the rationale, but it is perhaps just a justification (in Connecticut). In Florida, I don't think I could find a real Christmas tree if I tried.

  30. I like the idea of a modern tree, but in practice I'll stick to the traditional way!

  31. This artistic tree could be the template for a quilt. Then you could have it in your house. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
