So you may have remembered last week a post about the christmas tree that we cut down and then decorated and how much I hated it. If you don't or didn't read it, you can check it out here.
This is (or was) our main floor christmas tree. But I hated it so much. Mostly the lights I hated which is weird since pink is my favourite color. Greg thinks that if our walls weren't red that it would look better. Perhaps he is right but we won't know for sure until Christmas 2019 because we are painting in the new year and in 2018 we will have our fake tree haha.
So on Saturday after Penelope's soccer game, we stopped at Home Depot (they had the best price on lights according to the internet) and bought some warm white lights.
Nobody wanted to help undecorated the tree even though nobody really liked the pink lights so I did it all by myself.
It took a long time to get all of the lights and ornaments off the tree but I finally got it done with the help of my trusty kitchen stool that has clearly seen better days haha.
I got the lights on the tree and it took way longer then i thought it would. It was a lot of work getting them all around the tree. My arms are only so long haha.
Finally I got the whole tree decorated - just in time to head to Finley's soccer game haha. I still don't love the tree but the lights make a huge improvement for sure.
And the tree looks so much better in the dark then the pink tree did. There was no glow with the pink lights. The lights are still not perfect as you can see from this photo. I would love them to be consistent throughout the tree but stringing lights on a tree is hard and the branches are not consistent like a fake tree is. I still think that I prefer a fake tree to a real tree any day of the year. And even if this tree dies before xmas, I am not undecorating and redecorating another tree this year haha.
