Christmas Tree Tomato Cage

I've really been in the mood to decorate for Christmas this year.  Our family tradition is to put the outside lights out on the Friday after Thanksgiving.  That morning I fix a breakfast of bacon, eggs, and cinnamon rolls.  Then later when everyone is almost finished testing strings of lights, I bake chocolate chip cookies and serve them warm along with coffee and hot chocolate.
I really don't have much to do with the part of Christmas that involves decorating outside.

This year I did do just a bit of outside decorating.  Remember the tomato cage ghost that I posted about here?  Now it's a Christmas tree.



I took the ghost apart and washed the sheet to store away for next year, and I left the white lights on the tomato cage.




  I added a string of multi-colored lights and garland.



All of the fall decorations have been cleared away except for the grey pedestal planter



We fastened the tree in the pot with tent stakes (the same ones used to hold the ghost in the ground) and I added some ornament garland and a few small red glittered poinsettias.

Here is how it looks after dark.



I'm thinking about another tree for the other side of the step if I can find another container just like this one.  That is on my list of things to do today.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
