The hunt for an environmentally sound tree starring Goldylocks.
Last year, amid unpacking boxes, we used my grandmother’s ceramic tree. Tiny yet perfect, our 2-year-old found placing the lights in the tiny holes beyond entertaining. This year it is used as a nightlight in the little one’s room. She is still beyond entertained taking the lights in and taking them out again.
We considered using only the ceramic tree this year, but decided to go with a Norfolk pine in a lovely red pot that can be used year round. I’ve seen that done before. It can be decorated for any holiday throughout the year: birthdays, Valentine’s day, etc.
This way, our little one has a “real tree” at Christmas and a lovely pine plant the remainder of the year. If we move, we can plant it and be on our way.
That is…..if I don’t kill this one.
