Specifically, it was a snapshot from a Christmas party tweeted by actress Mitzi Gaynor. In the foreground are Gaynor, her husband, and Rossano and Lydia Brazzi. It looks like it was inspired by footage from a nuclear test.
Almost every Christmas since he was born, Steve Rose, 74, has decorated the "tree for life" which his parents bought from the department store in the s. The tree is only three foot tall and was one of the first mass produced artificial trees in the UK. Steve, a retired biology teacher who lives in Syston, inherited the tree alongside the lights and decorations from the s when his parents passed away eight years ago.
Unlike the impostors of the past, the best of today's imitation trees could pass as the real thing. Plus, most artificial Christmas trees now come pre-lit, so you can skip the temper-fraying ritual of distributing lights evenly around the branches and focus on the decorating. Whether you're looking for something classic or a unique eye-catcher, there's an artificial Christmas tree here for you. A budget buy can still make a statement.
I even have a growing Christmas tree collection in all shapes and sizes but this one in my dining room has to be my favorite. The fact that it took minutes to assemble, comes with warm LED lights, snowy flocking and a bit of glittery bling on the branches is the icing on the yule log. All of the product featured in this post was provided by the Martha Stewart Living team and is available at The Home Depot.

Golly, do we love our aluminum Christmas trees! Please note, my list only includes real aluminum trees — not tinsel ones or ones made from plastic with some sort of tinsel coating. This seems to be the best place online to find new reproduction aluminum Christmas trees.
