We have our main tree, then the kids have their own smaller tree. Plus we put 2 small (lights only) trees on each side of the front door, outside.

I put up 2 artifical trees. One 7ft one in the living room and then a little 2 ft one in the kitchen. This year I am thinking about putting another small one up in my bedroom.

We usually have 1 7-8 foot live tree in the den. Each kid has one in thier room, those are around 3-4 feet. Sometimes I have several small ones throughout the house. One year I had a small one in each room and every bathroom! Then outside, my husband tries to add more lights so eventually our house "will be visible from space", so every tree and bush is decorated. I also have a 4 foot one in my office. and a small one on my desk.

I put up a5ft fiber optic tree in the porch which looks greatfrom inside & out, a 6ft white rope light tree in the lounge & my fantastic 7ft tree goes in the conservatory as it is the only place big enough for it in the house, I must say it looks fantastic & everyone loves to see it, I have gone for Red/Gold in the past but I fancy a change this year so I'm on the lookout for some new ornaments.
