No Space for A Christmas Tree?

Then this might be for you:

The 7-Foot Upside-Down Pre-Lit Christmas Tree
Evoking a 12th century Central European tradition of hanging a tree from the ceiling at Christmas, this unique 7' pre-lit fir is inverted to ensure a smaller footprint for less-spacious areas, and allowing more room for the accumulation of presents underneath.


They had it on the morning show and it really is not bad when decorated.



Hmmmmmmm.....I can see possibilities.........

It's $599.95.
If you just love it and want it, go here:

  1. I think it takes up almost as much space as if it was set up the 'correct' way. It sure isn't natural looking-I think it's for shock value! : )
    There use to be a Christmas Museum in Chadds Ford and they had an upside down tree which were common in the 17th (?) century. The trees were actually hung from the ceiling and they were about 3-4 feet tall. The display looked nice too.

  3. dianne, I think the space savings is on the bottom. If you only have a small area free on the floor it will fit in because the big part on top takes up "air" space where you probably didn't have anything anyway. I have also seen the ones that hang from the ceiling and was surprised to learn that they originated so long ago.

  4. Exactly...why are forefathers did it because of the limited space in their cabins. : )
    I still would only do it to resemble the older ones.
