I don't think I could go for that, but I've loved old-fashioned things for as long as I can remember.

Just can't put my mind around a black Christmas tree - took me forever to accept white ones ........

I remember reading about black Christmas trees last year. I don't think I could get my mind around them, either, although I have only seen them in pics online. I think even worse, if that's possible, is the upsidedown Christmas trees. One ad actually said that many people use them because you can fit more presents under it. and to that I say "Ba-LONEY. I would guess that not many people use them at all.

I heard that the use of an upside down tree is to save space. and people in little homes and appartments tend to use them. I wouldn't have one though. I might try a white tree but no other colors. I love my green tree!

I did not manage to go to the site to see the black tree. However, I saw one in a shop last month and :mad: (but the tree I've seen was not decorated)

I actually don't mind it, but I don't think I could ever have one in our house, at least not for Christmas. ;) Halloween though...I could def do a black tree for Halloween! :D

I have seen them a couple times in the stores. I am going to get one for my bedroom actually one year and do the pre lit with white lights. I think it looks like a dark forest tree, they are really pretty.

the more I conside it the more I think it might be cute with christmas ornaments in the traditional colors on it.

I agree with everyone... the colors work together, but it doesn't convey the same feel as a regular tree. I wonder what a white tree with black lights would look like :O hide the stains!

that is a good question. I love black lights! It would probably look cute with black and blue ornaments!

I can't appreciate a black tree. A local florist had some dark red tinsel trees in their window. Those were very pretty and festive looking. I could maybe do those or a white one but definitely not black.

Congrats, OMC! Now, are you gonna wait til next Christmas to put it up, or can you just not wait and have you put it up now, just to see what it looks like, even though it's after Christmas? How do you plan to decorate it? and when it's all done, we want to see pictures, ok?:kinky elf:

I don't know if I would do a black tree. The ones I have seen done are very striking but don't know. I also said that about a white tree now I want to get one for the living room as I have alot of jewel color ornaments.

I haven't got it out of the box yet! but I will before long. I am not sure how I am going to decorate it yet. My SIL is going to give me some ornaments this year and more wrapping paper. SO when I see what all she has for me then I will have an idea!

I agree that it looks like dark green. I'd rather have a white tree than a black one, though. With colored lights the white trees remind me of something out of Rankin Bass' Rudolph. Like there's snow all over it. But, my all around favorite is a real tree (I just wish they smelled as strongly as they did when I was a kid!)

That's like using only red lights outside your home - too dark for me
