Borrow away!

One suggestion, and you may not care one way or the other, is I like to get the colored lights that do the different functions (like fade, flash, slow fade, etc) so it's like a mini light show in the middle of the tree. They're a little harder to find these days, but places like Big Lots, CVS and Walgreens usually carry them. Just thought I'd suggest it in case you're interested. Mine does 15 different things and I set it to the "combination" mode so it rotates through them all.

Jeepy, I love you "trees." I usually put some ornaments in a glass bowl, but the clear vases looks great. More ideas....
