  • Look, I would love a beautifully decorated, stylish tree. I wind up with a lopsided tree, bald in places and over decorated in others, adorned with ornaments made with wildly varying degrees of skill. I figure I will enjoy THIS kind of tree for a few years, and one day when the kids have moved out I can have the other kind. And I’ll probably mourn this one.

  • I let mine help and rearrange later

  • Yes definitely but mine extends to the husband too …. it has to be symmetrical and balanced I have to fix it.

  • thats why I have two trees, one for the kids to decorate and once for me to decorate.

  • I haven’t yet put up a decent tree but even a small one the decorations never stayed in they’re place

  • Cannot deal with kids decorations and they mayhem. My 5yo boy has a tree of his own and he makes his own decorations doing it how he likes and the family tree is all mine, except the star he helps put on

  • Totally agree, I am the same, I let the kids decorate it this year (5-7) I moved a few decorations once they were in bed

  • Our decorating ends up being a delightful mish mash! Love it!

  • Surprising as long as it’s not going to tip over I’m not fussy as long as it’s fun.

  • We love to decorate the Christmas tree and as long as it is overflowing with decorations that have meaning I do not mind. Love everyone to be involved with decorating the tree.

  • I do! I am a perfectionist and love my tree to look immaculate, but at the same time I know how much kids love doing it, and how much I loved helping do it when I was a child, so I think sometimes we just have to remember that, and put our OCD aside to make the kids happy. After all it has been decorated with love and it makes me smile when I look at it

  • I had no issues with the children helping to decorate the tree. I loved all the little handmade decorations and the fact most of them were hung low on the tree. Before you know it they are grown and not interested in helping… It becomes a sad job to do by yourself

  • I don’t why stress over it? my kids are now old enough to put the tree up and decorate it if they a little younger just let them help with the decorations they will enjoy it!
