Santa Baby, what a great picture. I love the table setting, it goes very gracefully with the tree. Very nice. :D



Unfortunately, I only put up one tree. :(

That is a beautiful tree and setting!! I've been sitting here watching the snow fall around it. :D The lights reflecting off everything is cool, too..



Yep, we only decorate one tree too....the kids have a small one in their room every year as well, but I don't know if that one counts. :)

What a lovely tree and dining table setting! Santa Baby, you are a very talented decorator. I have a pre-lit tree year round in my bedroom, one in the kitchen, one in the livingroom, and a little one on a table top...usually wherever I can find space. :roll:

One tree so far. I plan on eventually having a year round Oz tree. I've always wanted a tree for the dining room table. Very elegant.

beautiful decorating and place setting. Christmas card picture quality. Very very nice.



Every year I make a pinata the shape of a Christmas tree out of paper mache. Stuff it full of novelty items and the kids get to bust the thing open..the pinata is about three, three and half feet high..

Old family reciepe that my uncle created...he brought the pinata idea back from Mexico and created a glossy surface rather then the traditional fringe thingy. He made REALLY hard core ones...the kids could smack it with a Louisville slugger for HOURS and just make the outer layer a little dented. Mine only stand up for maybe half an hour.

I usually start the thing about right now..ordered the novelties yesterday...should be in town the first week of December.

Hey Dudley, that sounds like a very entertaining Christmas activity for the kids, a pinata..good for you, for putting so much effort into giving them a great time! (Pleased to make your acquaintance, by the way, I see you've been here for a while and I'm pretty new...but can't wait to get to know some of the older members of this Christmas forum. :) )

The tree in the dining room is a Victorian Tree with all white lights and the tree I do in the living room is more of a traditional. all kinds of colors and ornaments and colored lights. It holds 4 generations of ornaments from both myself and my husbands family as well as the special ornaments we give each other every year!



Dudley I love the pinata idea! It sound great do you have any pictures you could share?
