This year I'm decorating two trees for Christmas! Yes...two!...in my little apartment! I've had this artificial tree about 10 years and I think I've only used it twice. I decided to put it in my dining room and decorate it with blue and white china. I hung plates, cups & saucers, creamers, sugar bowls, silver spoons and chandelier crystals on it. It all seemed appropriate since it's in my dining room. I wasn't ready to pack up my new turkey dishes so I put them in my hutch. I added some greenery and some Christmas balls and it looks very festive now!

Below is the view from the stairs...
To hang the plates on the tree just put them in wire plate holders (the type you use to hang them on the wall) and tie them on with ribbon or wire them on. The teacups are hung with ribbon.
I put a little bit of greenery everywhere!
Now these are the type of gifts I would love to find under my tree! I'm sure some of you feel the same way about dishes...
