I was thinking of something like this.
I guess I need to start looking to buy one.
Since we'll be in the middle of a move, we won't have our normal fake 7 ft Christmas tree on us. I plan to buy a cheap table top tree and garland to hang our favorite ornaments. Apparently the military decided for us that we're not using our tree.

No tree for us this year. Our tree is a super sweet vintage 1950s aluminum tree and we're not risking it, especially since we won't be here for Christmas. We have to protect it from our furry hordes and last year that meant putting it in Teagan's room. I doubt that will work this year. I should probably talk to DH's grandma about what she plans to do with her tree when we visit ...
You can see our tree in this pic. Its from our epic failure that was our Christmas card photo shoot last year.
We're going to use thin wire or fishing line to tether the tree to the wall. It will be in a corner, so I think if we secure it to both walls and maybe one more hook in the ceiling, then it should be stable. Ours is an artificial tree (dh and I are allergic to real ones), and I think it's probably lighter than a real one.
I'm also going to make sure all the fragile ornaments are out of Rowan's reach. I think I'm going to get some really soft ones that she can play with for low on the tree.

I don't do anything different......ya it might take a bit of work telling her no and moving her away from the tree many times but I'm not going to move it somewhere else or but a gate to keep her away. Guess we'll see what happens.
I thought DS1 was going to be all over it. I seriously panicked. But I put it up and he ignored it like it wasn't even there So basically I'm hoping Tobey is going to do the same
