i thought i’d share some photos of one of my favorite trees in the gift shoppe this year. it’s a ten foot tall tree, but the top three feet is made of a bendable rod allowing it to ‘lean’. sorta looks like a whoville tree. you can call me michael-loo-who!

i was inspired by the colors of a peacock and these beautiful sequin peacock ornaments below.

90% of the time i wrap my tree with ribbon. i didn’t have anything in the shop to match, so i used a glittery green ribbon i found at wal-mart. i love ribbon on a tree. it fills that empty space so nicely. it also helps to hide cords from lights.

and of course i had to have real peacock feathers. found these guys on ebay for a steal!

the most amazing glittery green ferns i’ve ever seen. these really make the tree extra special.

    Stunning tree! 2 years ago we bent 2 of those types of trees together to make an arch. I love the lean!
    The peacock tree is gorgeous!

    This is gorgeous! I love the vibrant, rich colors and the fabulous tree. I think I totally need a tree like this. I actually used peacock feathers in one of my trees, but it’s totally different.

    I love this tree. The colors, sparkle, and ferns fronds evoke a magical Christmas jungle…in Asia. And, then when you least expect it…it bends! LOL I love something different. This is different, but extremely pretty and exciting. Very nice tree!:)

  • missarahlou at

    Just… WOW! I love it! I especially love the ferns… they almost look like feathers themselves!

  • Shannon at

    Shut up. I cannot take how awesome this tree is. First of all, I’m kinda obsessed with peacocks lately. but you, my friend, have taken it to an all new level. The curviness, the shininess, the glitteryness….please feel free to box this baby up, mark it Fragile and send it across the state when you tire of it. B

  • Julie Smith at

    This is absolutely beautiful! Playful yet sophisticated. My kids would love this and so would I.

    We decorated our tree this weekend, though I’m afraid your tree puts ours to shame 🙂

  • Oonafey at

    The peacocks are gorgeous, they tree is fantastic, and you are genius. I am going to be on the lookout for green and teal ornaments in the sales this year!

    I love the idea of wrapping the tree with ribbon, but I am too stinkin’ lazy to take all the ornaments off, wrap it, and re-decorate it. Maybe next year!

  • cassi at

    where do I find one to buyyy?????

  • brianna at

    I love this tree. I’m looking to do a who-ville/seuss tree for a fund raiser event and I need some advice on how to bend the top of the tree. Any ideas that you can share? Or where did you purchase this crazy tree that has a bendable rod on the top?
    Thanks,
    Bri

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      I got this tree from a wholesale company about 5 years ago. It’s specially designed to bend like that. I’m so sorry but at this point, I’m not sure where to direct you to get one. Best of luck.

      xo Michael
