Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree …. I’m already counting the days down until I can deck the halls! If any of you have followed me on Instagram, you know that I have an insane obsession with Christmas. Much to others’ dismay we decorate THE DAY after Halloween. Our new (OLD) house is just begging for a tree in every room. So that’s exactly what I did. I loaded up on artificial trees so I could leave them up for months and not have to worry about them dropping pine needles after they died 2 weeks later.
The trick is to buy trees when they’re ON SALE and to buy trees that look so real you wouldn’t know the difference. Now, last year was our first year decorating this house, so I MAY get a real tree for one of the rooms. But I just loved having the trees up through February (sorry, not sorry) so I’m kind of in love with the idea. Not to mention, spending $100 on a real tree every year seriously blows the budget. I’d rather spend that money on a fancy dinner out on the town! I digress… without further ado, check out my artificial tree favorites.
Artificial Christmas Tree Favorites
1. Kid’s Playroom Tree — Now this tree is an el-cheapo from Target. I’ve had it for years. I’ve had to restring the lights a few times, but no one sees this except them, so it didn’t need to be a show stopper.
2. 7.5′ Unlit — This is the Mac Daddy of all trees. It’s absolutely stunning! You would NEVER know it was fake. I get this one Unlit because this is the one we decorate. And, if you’re reading this close to when I wrote this post, it’s likely ON SALE!
3. 7′ Pre-Lit This is equally as beautiful but doesn’t look as real because of the spacing of the branches. This one goes in the dining room. I don’t even decorate this one. I just like the twinkly glow next to the fire!
4. 7′ Fur with LED Lights – And finally, this is one of my favorites. This goes in our bedroom. The lighting is simple and it has a Charlie Brown feel, which I love. I put a little tinsel and ribbon on this one and that’s it!
Well I hope this was helpful for all of you artificial tree lovers out there! Let me know your thoughts. I love to hear them all!
