So…..we have a toddler and two cats at home, which is not a good combination for all the decorations on a Christmas tree. Apart from wrapping it in gladwrap or hanging in from the ceiling, we decided on a different option and decorated the Norfolk Pine in our back yard. We’ve still hung tinsel and a star, but some of the decorations weren’t outdoor friendly so there is a lot more tinsel than usual.
I’m pretty impressed but hope we don’t have gale force winds in the meantime.
Last year wasn’t very festive, due to various reasons….so we hung a magic tree air freshener from the air conditioning vent.
This year it’s just me, my two girls and grandson – a bit of an orphans Christmas but I’m sure we’ll enjoy it outside with a non traditional bbq and tree.
Have you had an unusual tree or a Christmas Dinner that isn’t very traditional?

  • yeah i have heard of people hanging their trees up-side down from the ceiling! it gives them space and the animals, children etc can’t touch it! i suppose that you can google it if you are interested.

  • I love your idea. We don’t have any nice tree in the garden. Why don’t you post a picture?
    We had a non-traditional Christmas dinner last year! We ate cheese fondue! :-)
