One more mystery solved!

The last mystery of my shopping spree last week is the Christmas tree I purchased.

I know the Hudson Valley brand is a really good brand.  Inside the box was a registration card and 15 year warranty card.

I'm surprised nothing is written on the box regarding the size of the tree or the type of tree it is.  I was unable to find anything about it online.  I had no choice but to put it together!
Remember, it was sealed in the box.
First thing to do is put the stand together.  OMG, it took me forever to figure it out!

Then, lay out all the branches that have the same color bands on them.

Put all the branches into the pole, starting at the bottom and working your way up.

Now, you fan out all the branches to fill in space.  I would do this better if I planned on keeping it up but for these purposes, I just fanned out the front sections and it could have used some more spreading them apart.

I like it, I think it's really cute but still bigger than I wanted for my space.  I'm guessing it's a four foot tree.  Put some mini lights on it and vintage ornaments, would be awesome!  Don't forget, I only paid $3.00 for it!

That is a perfect little tree.
I can't believe the stand came with it and everything is in such nice condition. Fantastic deal at $3.00. LOL

That tree is fantabulous!!!!! I aadore it! Good job figuring out the stand. I used to have one like that and it kinda stumped me over and over again every year!!! lol.

Thanks, it is pretty cool and I think I found a spot for it.

It took me longer to get that stand together than to do the rest of the tree. Found out I had the legs in the wrong way. AND, I put it in the box all together, not going through that again! LOL!
