Finding The Perfect Christmas Tree

Finding the perfect artifical Christmas Tree-Balsam Hill

I know, I know, Christmas Trees?

We just finished with Halloween but bare with me:).

A few months ago I found out that Balsam Hill was going to be sponsoring this year’s Holiday Housewalk hosted by Jennifer Rizzo, eek!!!

Growing up I always had a REAL Christmas Tree, it wasn’t until I was about 18 that I ever had an artificial one.

There was always something about Christmas & a real tree.

That was until I found Balsam Hill.

Have you seen their trees?!

Oh my gosh, they are the most realistic looking artificial trees I have ever laid my eyes on.

 So from rom there began my search for the perfect Christmas Tree.

Oh my gosh, it was so hard to choose!

In the end I went with the Brewer Spruce, I just loved the look.

Quick set up for Balsam Hill Artifical Christmas Trees

I am not sure who was more excited about this tree, my husband or me.

Funny story- last year we brought home a REALLY big {real} tree, maybe, possibly a little too big

because in the middle of the night, CRASH!!!

I kept telling him to be safe we should tie it to the wall but someone {not saying who} couldn’t dream of putting a hole in our molding.

Yes, we can laugh about it now but at 3:30 in the morning, not so much.

So when he heard we had an artificial one coming he was ecstatic!

Someone else was excited too, my  little Jack was such a big help.

The set up was so easy-the best part-it was pre-lit!!!

  1. I adored all of your creative and personal touches you made last year. I look forward to seeing your new ideas. I really enjoy decorating for Christmas – this year I just can’t wait. I like to mix vintage with handmade. I have an idea for something fun to add to our “Kid Tree” this year.

  2. That’s quite a tree, won’t you miss the “real” smell? lol I’d love to have real tree this year, been missing that real tree smell. Last year hubs made a pretty great tree with pine garlands over tomato cages, (payday wasn’t til day after Christmas for us). Put some strings of lights on and we had a tree.
    Anyway your tree looks incredible. So full and lush, great shape. Who wouldn’t want one of those trees? What a shame about your real tree crashing last year, bad enuf to happen let alone middle of night.
    We have small l/r so no room for big lush tree. To have it in front of window would have to move hubs chair, not a good idea, think it will have to be in corner or on trestle table by 1/2 kitchen wall. It’s just two of us, so I decorate some, not as much as I used to as the putting away is getting more tedious. Make lots of (too many) decorations and ornaments so I give most away.
    Can hardly wait to see what you have up your sleeve for us. Know whatever it is will be great. Always enjoy all your projects and your blog. Happy weekend
