    One of the local garden centres has a Christmas Wonderland and their trees have beautiful wide organza ribbon instead of tinsel, and I think it looks amazing!

    I was just wondering if any of you lovely ladies use it and if so - where did you get it and how much you paid for it?

    I've seen some trees with ribbon on and I agree it looks awesome. We don't put tinsel or ribbon on though, just toys :)

    I do :) and beads :) I cant remember how much I paid :shrug: Got it in homebase b&q tesco etc.. most places do it but make sure you get the ones that are wound in a circle reel thing so it stays curled on the tree.

    I've used ribbon. I got it from the poundshop I think. It was quite nice too, thick and red with gold braiding on the edges, it looked very smart. I got new decs last year though so won't be using it this year. xxx

    Never seen a tree with ribbon on but I can imagine it to look quite pretty.

    I'm one of the tinsel haters so we use gold & silver beading on our tree (to match the tree colour scheme).
