As the basis for your festive decorations, the Christmas Tree takes centre stage in most homes throughout December so it’s important to pick the right one. Whether real or faux, traditional or contemporary, follow our guide to help you select the right tree for your space.
The Real Deal
According to the British Christmas Tree Growers Association a healthy Christmas Tree should last six weeks inside a home, so for those of us looking for the real deal Mid-November is the time to start. A blue spruce is often regarded as the most attractive tree with longer lasting needles than its competitors- if you’re buying locally make sure you ask about delivery dates ahead of time so you can get the freshest tree.
For those of us that love a natural tree but dread the dropped needles and maintenance, a faux tree is the next best thing. Fake trees often had a bad reputation for being cheap and unrealistic, but our buying team have worked with the best Christmas companies to find a tree so realistic you’ll find it hard to believe it’s not. Designed to look just like a real mountain fir, our blue-green needled trees have an authentic looking trunk and flexible branches that can be bent into the perfect shape.
Looking for something extra special? Our fabulous Frosted Fir Christmas Tree is covered in a light dusting of frosted white ‘snow’ to add a touch of opulence and sparkle to your Christmas. Click here for our useful guide on how to assemble these impressive two-metre high trees.
Not enough room for a 6ft tree? We’ve found stylish solutions for those who love Christmas but are looking for something that’s a little different and saves on space. Created from natural birch wood, our Hanging Branches Christmas Tree includes 10 snow frosted branches hung on jute string to create a natural inspired tree silhouette. Whether used as your main festive centrepiece or alongside a traditional tree, we’ve used our small and large branches tree to show you different ways to decorate using some of our favourite Christmas accessories.
For those looking for some more modern, then our striking white Tree Silhouette Wall Art is perfect for you. Designed to be propped against a wall or on a table, this simple statement tree can be left bare, wrapped in our Naked Wire Lights or even decorated by your little ones with artistic flair.
Why not be a little different and create your very own Winter Wonderland scene instead of a traditional tree? Whether you’re looking to create this scene inside or out, our pre-lit birch effect twig trees will shine bright. With a strong and flexible wire frame that’s been wrapped in a weather proof birch-effect coating, these Scandinavian inspired branches look impressive on their own or grouped together. Available in several sizes with different finishes, these trees will fit into any space and transform your home into a hilltop chalet.
Our Scandi inspired Light Up Birch Trees work just as well outside as they do in, but for a real outdoor statement our Outdoor Light Up Tree Tower is bound to wow. Made from twelve strings for warm white LED bulbs around a simple metal pole, this tree is easy to build and store away over the Summer, and will brighten up your whole garden throughout winter.
