Silver or black Christmas tree?
in Special occasions & other celebrations
17 replies 1.7K views
I've bought a small Christmas tree from Paperchase. They had sold out of the green so I decided to go for black but when I got it home and opened the box they had given me a silver one. It's ok and more traditional than black I guess but I can't make my mind up. I've put some purple and blue baubles on it and it looks ok but maybe a little cold? I cant be bothered to take it back. Which colour would you prefer?

They started off green, but with all the soot coming from mill chimneys.
What it may grow to in time, I know not what.

It would have to be green for me, if they'd sold out of the green I think I'd have looked elsewhere or even done without this year and got in early next year.
My tree is green and fibre optic.
If you think the purple & blue baubles are a bit cold, take off the blue & add a bit more purple - crackers, ribbon, paper chain, whatever you can source that helps. Ask for red decorations as presents & hang them at once?!
Changing the tree can be a bit of a faff, but running a few extra decorations, especially gifts from friends, is simple. Plus red will work nicely with a green tree another year - enjoy!
I wouldn't keep if you have reservations as you would look at it and think Oh I wish I'd changed it !
Or maybe that's just me !

I keep debating whether to change it, but can't really be bothered spending the money on a new one, and if I did I'd be torn as to what colour to go for as I don't do anything 'ordinary' so I probably wouldn't choose green and would end up opting for black or even possibly dark blue.
My problem has now been solved as a friend at work has now brought in for me a green fibre optic tree which him and his wife no longer use.
