Hummm... Different, creative, colorful, le sapin de noël...

Too modern for my taste....out of place, I think, in beautiful Paris...oh, and those orange trees.....!!

Bibi - we have seen all colors under the rainbow, including a pink palm tree, flocked with pink snow!

Tell me I'm old-fashioned..BUt I prefer a green one, or a white-with snow one. Orange is " too much halloween"!
The joke in your picture is the orange trees under a sign saying Bianco", which means "white"...

Dear Genie

It's a celebration!
They get it!
Enjoy your Christmas in Paris - again, I wish I was there with you.
hugs

We can purchase Elvis, Mickey Mouse or Shrek decorations for the tree... So why not orange Christmas trees? Nice photo.

I wouldn't attempt this in my home, but here ~ I love it! Happy and safe travels, Genie...

Put some blue balls on those puppies and you've got yourself an Auburn tree! :)

I think I heard a cork pop when I woke up this morning. Don't you dare drink it ALL!

PS We've done it again. I have red flocked today but the baby slept late! HA

The Europeans are always more avant-garde with their holiday decorations. Fun! Wish I were there this year. Have fun (and a café crème or deux) for me? Thank you for bringing a little of Paris in December to me.

Love the idea of a different "sapin de Noel", red or orange it's beautiful anyway!
Imagine it with lots of laces!Cool!

This season's purple, actually. That and brown....

(You're just SOOOO 2009!

I like it in a commercial zone...it's different, has pizazz! But at home, give me a green traditional tree that I can cover with my ornament collection...

Starman said...

It works for me.

M said...

I hope you are having a wonderful time!!! Not my taste but I'm OK with it in a commercial establishment. I do think it's funny that the store is called Bianco.

Alexa said...

You and V are thinking alike again! I too like these for a "commercial Christmas," but want to come home to my pretty green (if artificial) tree! Hope you're having just the best ol' time!

Randy said...

Now that is something you don't see everyday! It does add that touch of color though.

Ninny said...

Very modern and Paris does that very well!

We just happened by this restaurant the very day I posted and left them with one of my P&B cards. I told them to check out the blog and that the 2009 trees were on the site. Of course, the explanation in French may have had some gaps, but I hope that they check it out. (You do know that I talk to everyone!)

PS, JB the major theme may be purple for 2010, but I have seen more pink and red flocking. Bianco has continued their orange/black theme this year...

Bon weekend to all!

The proprietors decided to orrange for something a little different this year.

It is, ah, um, "trendy." I think that word would work.

Nanette said...

I think I have that tree! I love it! (of course, I am Miss Halloween)...
