This year I was thrilled to receive a new tree from Tree Classics to review. We have always been an artificial tree family. It allows us to enjoy the tree longer and is easier to maintain.
Tree Classics tagline is “the world’s finest artificial trees” and they certainly live up to their tagline. We received the 7.5′ Alberta Spruce prelit tree and were so impressed by the quality. As I was spreading out the branches when we began setting the tree up this weekend, I kept saying, “I can’t get over these branches. They look so real!”
Every branch has tons of smaller branches on it, making the tree incredibly full and life-like.
For the trimmings, I decided to go with gold and silver deco mesh, silver beads (that look gold on the tree), red and gold balls and many family ornaments. I love for our main tree to be both beautiful and meaningful.
Last year was my first year using deco mesh on our tree, and I loved it. This year, I decided to go a little less dramatic and used the mesh as more traditional garland around the tree instead of poofs running down the tree.
All the gold and red balls were bought at Target 90% off after Christmas. This was a super affordable way for us to totally update our tree. Literally, the boxes of ornaments were 50 cents a piece! If you have never read my tips for shopping Target clearance, you must.
He kept asking, ornaments, mommy? Is it time? I laughed as I explained repeatedly that it takes time to decorate a tree and that we had to get the branches spread and the garland up before we could do ornaments.
Through today, you can get up to 60% off on all Tree Classics trees + free shipping.
