A New Christmas Tree from Tree Classics + Giveaway

by jessicaturner on November 27, 2013

deco mesh christmas tree Last year, half the lights on our Christmas tree failed and we ended up throwing it away after the holiday season. It just wasn’t worth the headache.

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.

deco mesh christmas tree The lights shine brightly, warming up our living room like only Christmas like can do.

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.

deco mesh christmas 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.

deco mesh christmas tree Elias was soooo excited to get the family ornament boxes open and hang some on the big tree and some on the smaller one in his room.

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.

While on Tree Classics site, be sure to browse their wreaths, garlands and accessories. They have many beautiful options. They sent us the Winterberry wreath and I have it displayed on our front door.

wreathIt is big, beautiful and the most-perfect Christmas red. I think I will probably leave it up until Valentine’s Day. I love it so much.

There is no one home anymore to enjoy all the decorations and the tree is old and dilapidated. Perhaps a nice new tree that already has lights and easy to put up, is just the ticket to put some sparkle back in our season. thank you for the opportunity

I haven’t decorated yet and I’m not sure how much decorating I’ll do with our house being for sale and possibly moving soon.

Kristin Smith November 27, 2013 at 8:43 am

My husband didn’t want to decorate until after Thanksgiving…. :( but I understand because he wanted Thanksgiving to feel like it’s own holiday….the kids can’t wait for Friday to come!!

Reply

Stacie November 27, 2013 at 8:43 am

I decorated 2 weekends ago! haha I always have to decorate at work too, so I wanted to get mine done before I had to do that! We will probably put the tree up and the outdoor stuff this weekend, though. That’s the best part anyway…because the kids get into it. The real joy of the season.

Susan November 27, 2013 at 8:44 am

My husband wouldn’t think of allowing decorations before Dec. 1st, but I’ve reclaimed the corner of the dining room where our tree will sit. It was covered by 4,000 cars, trucks and trains courtesy of my 4 year old until last Sunday!

We’re looking forward to decorating this weekend. We’ve been using a poor hand-me-down tree for years and would absolutely be thrilled to have a new one!

I love this giveaway!

Kimberly November 27, 2013 at 8:53 am

We usually wait until after Thanksgiving to put up our tree since we have to displace our dog’s bed to do it. :) Plus this year we plan to get a real tree – our artificial one was looking a bit scraggly – so we may not get a tree up until mid-December.

Jennifer November 27, 2013 at 8:57 am

That wreath is beautiful! I decorate right after Thanksgiving. Thanks for the chance to win.

I have not decorated for Christmas yet. We moved into a lovely new home this summer that we are so blessed to be in. I just got out a lot of accessories and decorated for Thanksgiving and am so pleased with the outcome. I wish I enjoyed decorating for Christmas more than I do, but I know in our new home it will look great, just haven’t decided when I’ll do it.

We were going to start decorating today, but we’ve actually been looking for a new tree, so don’t want to put up the old tree, so this would be perfect for us to win!

Margaret November 27, 2013 at 9:36 am

No decorating yet. Getting some work done inside and then…

Reply

Erin November 27, 2013 at 9:36 am

Way too early to decorate! We will put up lights next week when we get some nice weather. Our family tradition is to wait until the second Sunday of Advent to decorate, then take everything down on Epiphany after a blow-out Twelfth Night party.

Melanie A. November 27, 2013 at 9:38 am

My plans were to start this weekend inside and out but they were kind of put on hold as I lost a dear friend yesterday to cancer and his visitation and funeral will be this weekend. I will still find some spirit somewhere as I know he would want it, but it will certainly make it harder.

Jill A November 27, 2013 at 9:41 am

I’m starting this year’s Christmas decorations from scratch due to changes in my family over the last year. The wreath or garland would be a great place to start! Beautiful!

I’m semi-decorated. I have the tree up and decorated and lighted garland on our stairs up. Still need to pull out the nativity scene and my collection of snowmen and santas. I love having the glow from the lights when I go to bed and wake up in the morning.

I always wait until Dec. 1st to decorate. This year I’m super excited as my sister is visiting from across the country and will be here so we can enjoy doing it together! Thanks for the giveaway. I’ve been keeping an eye out for a nice wreath for our front door. :-)

Same here, the lights on our tree died last year. I’d love to put up a real tree, but, for now artificial is just more practical for us.

Your tree is gorgeous! I’m waiting until this weekend to decorate. My family does an artificial tree as well and love to keep it up for quite awhile. It stays up from Thanksgiving weekend until after New Year’s. Some years I want it down Jan 2nd and other years I love letting it linger.

Jessica November 27, 2013 at 10:14 pm

My family was always artificial tree with white lights, and my husband was real tree with colored lights, so when we got married we agreed to compromise with a real tree and white lights. His parents have since bought a fake tree with white lights, but he sticks to his guns on the real tree . . . plus, we don’t have a basement to store it in the other eleven months of the year :0(

Reply

Kelly Jones November 27, 2013 at 10:15 pm

We are totally a family that is anti-decorating-before-Thanksgiving. The only exception I’ve gotten my husband to agree to is putting up lights early (but not turning them on) if we get a warmer day. We usually don’t though. So we don’t have anything out yet but you better believe that tomorrow after bed time it’s all about the decor!!!
