Do you have one of those basement support poles in your unfinished basement that is not cleverly hidden? Is it maybe even in a very inconvenient spot? Do you really wish you could do something about it? Yes, yes, yes; I answered!

I even bought some ornaments that had clips on them, just for this tree. I bought some garland, too. I think this will be my purple peacock tree.
Here it is in the dark.
