O Christmas Tree, part deux

This is going to turn into a multi-parter!!

Here is the tree now. It looks finished, but it's not. There is a bit of silver to be added, a pretty tree skirt, some ribbon, and a few more fake presents.

But today?? Today has brought out the opinions. I've had no less than 5 people walk by my office and tell me that the tree is 1) blah, 2) ugly, or (my personal favorite) 3)a brilliant example that I have no sense of style. I was also asked if I was colorblind since I picked green and blue together. Much to their dismay, I am not!

A few years ago, I saw a Wicked! Christmas tree in Crate & Barrel. To this day, that was one of the prettiest trees I've ever seen, all done in lime green, silver, and black. I know that my fellow cohorts can't quite handle that, but I did want more than traditional Christmas colors, you know??

Clearly tomorrow holds more challenges. Oh, and I failed to mention that the original coworker who approached me? Well, she didn't decorate it. DRAMA!!!

Stay tuned...

I'm trying to get my brain around people complaining about something they were unwilling to help with.
I'd tell them they get the job next year since they are CLEARLY the expert.
But I often have a bad attitude in regards to critics. :OP
Hang in there!!

I think it is pretty. Ohhh I want to see a Wicked! Christmas tree...that must have been gorgeous.

I think I would tell them to shut up. Okay in a much nicer manner...but geez to complain about something you would not help with. Ridiculous.

You are much nicer than I would be. Just sayin. :o)

I can't believe they have the balls to complain about something that they aren't helping with. The nerve!!!
I think that tree is looking great and can't wait to see it finished.
That girl didn't come through, huh? Sheesh!!! So much for being involved!!! Lame...really lame!!!

Huh?? They are complaining about a beautiful Christmas tree? How rude!
