Fiber Optics - Tiny Tree but Amazing Lights!

Back when we lived in a small rental house John and I purchased a tabletop tree.  The box claimed it to be 4 feet tall but I'm not sure how they managed to get that measurement since the tree with stand is hardly more than 38" in height.  As artificial trees go it is okay but I doubt that anyone would mistake it for a real pine, however it is a fiber optic tree and its light display is very pretty, unfortunately it's also almost impossible to capture on camera ... especially with the flash on.  Below are a few very dark photos taken without flash in hopes that the colorful array of lights would show up. 

Photo above - really dark, can see the lights but not the tree.
Photo below - a bit lighter but the fiber optic lights are a bit blurred.  Now I understand why all the photos of fibre optic  trees on google search were blurry.

I've been trying to talk my hubby into allowing us to get a more substantial tree for next Christmas ... maybe a 6 or 7 footer.  John and I both love the effect of the ever changing colors cascading across the fiber optic filaments that  cover our little tree and would like the next, larger tree to also have this feature but tall fiber optic trees seem to be as scarce as hen's teeth.   We have close to a year to find one so  we  I will continue looking.

Hoping you are enjoying this special season.   Love and Goodwill to you all !
Happy Holidays !    Merry Christmas !


  1. Hey, blurry photos aside, that's exactly the kind of tree that Matt & I need! We've been looking for something small, festive and SUPER LOW maintenance. Think I'll hit the stores next week & pick one up on sale (if there are any left!). Can't wait to see your next edition next year. Only 4 days left? Hard to believe! Have a very Merry Christmas my friend :-)

  2. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you!

  3. SO cool. My father-in-law has a fiber optic WHITE tree and Zack is enthralled by it!

  4. Look for a tree after the Christmas holidays if you do not want a real tree- that is when they are cheap. Buy one that is pre-lit. Oh, and keep an eye on Craig's list for a used tree. People may be thinking of downsizing.

  5. The fiber optic trees are so beautiful and mesmerizing. I could stare at them for hours! I hope you can find a taller tree for next year!

    Merry Christmas! XO
