I am pretty partial to the plantation fir and I do like a blue spruce. But, since I like to put a tree up early I drag out my artificial tree. The last two years due to health problems I actually bought real trees at Home Depot. I am a fanatic about the lights, there must be lots and lots of them. Lights really make the tree. My fake job is 7 1/2 ft tall, so I put anywhere from 1,000 to 1,200 lights on it, now in clear. I do like for my tree to glow. I did red lights for many years, the inside & outside was done in all red, very pretty. I do enjoy putting on my favorite ornaments. I usually have lots of those on the tree. My daughter says too many, but hey I have more experience in this dept than she does, lol. The past 7 yrs I have not been able to decorate like normal because of health problems. This year I want to badly to get back in to decorating the entire bottom floor.
