My DH's boss held a Xmas party at the weekend. You will never guess what they had on their tree.

Amongst hundreds of baubles. I am amazed the tree did not fall over.

MmeHereWeGoAWassailLindt Mon 15-Dec-08 23:17:54

And mickey mouse baubles

whomovedmychocolate Mon 15-Dec-08 23:18:18

A white feather boa. Is that all - Debenhams sell them, they aren't that unusual hmm

Am disappointed about the lack of tortured souls. grin

ToysAreLikeDogs Mon 15-Dec-08 23:18:32

eurgh

They have No Taste

Isaw3SMALLSHIPSgosailingby Mon 15-Dec-08 23:19:45

Horrible, but not unusual!

I have spent the last 16 Christmases in Germany where tinsel is considered the height of bad taste so it was shocking

LOL at some of the suggestions. A mooncup tree would be unusual

ToysAreLikeDogs Mon 15-Dec-08 23:23:03

Oh you must see this

whomovedmychocolate Mon 15-Dec-08 23:24:17

I think tinsel looks slightly better than dog vomit on a tree but it's a close thing. But then my tree has colour coordinated baubles (52 of them evenly spaced). However, DD has a tree in her room which looks like Julian Clary's closet hmm. Her tree has Iggle Piggles hanging from the branches and all sorts grin

Toysarelikedogs grin that's v funny.

My eyes, my eyes!!

You would have loved this house then. Barely an inch without tinsel or glittery baubles. And Disneyland baubles with a photo of the DGC inside.

They are lovely people but their taste in Xmas decorations was far far from mine.

I like tinsel on the Christmas tree. My children always decorate it and they put baubles and tinsel on it and it always loks fab. I hate co-ordinated trees and decorations.

Actually, tinsel is not completely outlawed in Germany.

But it has to be individual silver strands and just a smattering of them, too.
