Feather Christmas trees: Hit or miss?

One of my favourite everlasting Christmas tree releases this season is  Urban Barn's Vegas model. With its glittering champagne metallic branches, it's unapologetically artificial, but would work so well with the mix of warm bronze and gold finishes throughout my home: [caption id="attachment_1108" align="aligncenter" width="410"] Vegas 7.5-foot tree in Champagne, $149, Urban Barn.

Wow... December 2007!

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the feather tree.   [caption id="attachment_1109" align="aligncenter" width="410"] Seven-foot feather tree in white, $200, Bouclair.

Charming and whimsical, or just downright wacky?  I'd love to hear your opinion in the comments section below!   Follow me on Twitter!
