So Im self conscious to post this because I worked so hard but heres the finished product of my #rosemary #ChristmasTree Its #small but its #decorate and real. Ive had some of these #ornament since before I was born and others I got throughout my childhood. My Mom and I buy an #ornament representing each year. She gave me a few of the ornaments when I moved out. I didnt get to use all of my #ornaments but Im proud to have a few of these memories on my first real #tree 🎄 #christmasdecorations

It looks so good! Seriously, I thought the description would be "I found this perfectly decorated tree for sale and had to have it".

Thank you @savannahssucculentgarden !! 🥰💚 I really appreciate the compliment!! My Mom and I used to volunteer in a Christmas shop when I was little, so I've learned the art of decorating Christmas trees.

So, I have to admit something.. I've never had a real #ChristmasTree before, because I'm allergic to pine. I have always wanted one!! I found this #rosemary #Christmas #tree at Whole Foods and figured that could be my loophole to having a #real Christmas tree this year. It's #small , but I'm trying it out. Lights and small #ornaments will be on soon. And I know I'm a day late for #lights , but I put up some more solar lights, on the fence. #plant #plants #bow #holiday #gold #red #green #salvia

Thank you @cyndi !! I'm allergic to most tree's pollen and by touch, but this article was very useful. I'll try some of these trees in future years and I like the idea of having the tree outside. 💚🎄

Also https://www.thespruce.com/what-are-hypoallergenic-trees-3976742 and if you can see if you can try local raw honey which helps a person deal and work at making allergies less. I do this and it works for me! But it does take a while. Theres teas that can help as well . I wish you very best at finding trees and plants that work for your allergy issues!

What a great idea. Something good came out of having allergies, it’s good to do things a bit differently 😄😄

@sharonhayden thank you!! I thought it was clever, too. I was doing some research and they grow to be 8ft tall (2.4 meters) so that's eventually the size of a standard Christmas tree.
