Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!
I usually decorate for Christmas the weekend after Thanksgiving but this year I couldn't wait to get my tree up!
I received an email recently that Tree Classics wanted to send me an artificial Christmas Tree! I have been wanting an artificial tree for a few years now for many reasons.
- I'm tired of the mess that real trees make (mess dragging it in the house and a major mess taking it out when the needles are dropping everywhere)
- I hate how they seem to dry out so easily
- I worry about turning on the lights when they are so dried out
- My allergies get so bad every year when I bring a live tree in my home (it took me years to figure out that my allergies in Nov/Dec where due to the live tree filled with pollen in my home)
- Real trees are so expensive for something that only lasts a few weeks
Even if someone was offering me a free artificial Christmas Tree I didn't want something that looked like a cheap artificial tree! I was so pleased when I looked at their website and saw how beautiful their trees are! I also must mention that their prices are very reasonable considering the quality!
I chose their 7 1/2 foot Kennedy Fir Slim Tree with clear lights. It is great that they offer slim trees because that's all I have room for in my small apartment! They even offer trees with flat backs so they can go up against the wall!
When the box arrived a few weeks ago I opened it up and couldn't believe how real it looked and then I felt it and it actually feels real! So weird...I know! Their website said it has "Highly realistic Real-Feel™ needles" but I really didn't expect it to feel that real! What a pleasant surprise!
Here is some close-ups of the branches...
I wish you could reach in your screen and touch these! Everyone that's seen it so far can't believe it's not real!
They have so many different trees it's really hard to make a decision...sort of like being a kid in a toy store!
If you want to see some beautiful inspiration photos of gorgeous trees, check out their "In the News" page and see what celebrities have these trees! Gorgeous trees!
And I have some exciting news! They also gave me some ornaments and I'm going to share 1/2 of what they gave me with one of you! Come back next week for the giveaway!
Thanks to all of you that join in on Show and Tell Friday every week and thanks to all of you who leave such nice comments!
