I ordered a white christmas tree in July- the postmaster had lots of fun with that one-and thought it looked great with the vintage ornaments I bought. When we moved I didn't take the tree because the whole $10/pound shipping thing made me seriously rethink what was going with me. Whoever is living in my old condo, there is a white christmas tree under the stairs.
I had my work Christmas party in late November so I felt like that gave me license to put mine up right after. I could not find another white tree so we went with black. The fibre optic lights sold one of us and the unusual colour sold me. (We don't turn the fibre optic lights on cause it looks a bit tacky). Here are a few pictures of what Christmas is looking like at my house. I'm going to do a full apartment/house tour in the new year but everything on the buffet are thrift finds from estate sales/antique markets/craigslist and most of the Christmas things are from Homesense.
