Has the thought of pine needles all over the floor and hiding in your furniture all year round driven you to the edge of sanity? Is it time to give up on the need for that “real tree” smell in your house in favour of fake and easy this year? Well, no longer are fake trees the rudimentary pieces of plastic they used to be. On the contrary, there’s a whole world of artificial Christmas tree wonders out there to behold. Whether you look in stores or online, you’re guaranteed to find a tree to suit every style or requirement.
If you’re living in a small apartment then all you need is a box of miniature trees to give just a subtle hint of yuletide. Place them on tables, in windows, beside your computer or at your bedside to create a little magic in your home. You can get trees that come in a variety of colour schemes to suit your own decor and are adorned with small and tasteful trinkets or none at all if you prefer to take control and do the decorating yourself. These styles of trees often come in stylish boxes and make a perfect pre-christmas gift for friends and family who need a fresh new look this year in their workplace or home.
When choosing a full sized artificial tree, they come in sizes that range from 1m tall for the cosiest of rooms, to well over 2m tall for an appearance of grandeur. The best part of buying a bare tree is the excitement of getting to design the look from scratch and the freedom to create a piece of artwork in your own home. You can even choose the colour of the foliage, there is a growing trend towards silver and black Christmas trees with a minimalist approach to colour but a very open-minded approach to style of decoration involved. A very modern look for Christmas.
For those who love Christmas tree lights above all else, there’s always the option to choose a fibre optic tree that require no other decorative items as the forever changing coloured glow that emanates from these would overshadow anything close to it. These varieties range from small green table top trees to large white trees that can be as tall as any other artificial tree on the market. With the room lights switched off, these trees take centre stage as they glow majestically, instilling the common belief of the Christmas tree being the most effective symbol of Christmas in the average home today.
If time is not on your side this year, don’t add extra burden to an already bewildering schedule and order yourself a complete Christmas tree package available in many stores and online shops. This action is surely going to reduce any stress for those who don’t have time to shop for decorations or panic at the thought of assembling a stylish look for their tree. An artificial tree that comes with a full set of pre-designed decorations – problem solved. Have fun with the family putting it all together without having to put a bit of thought into it.
As you can see, there are numerous paths to take when choosing your artificial tree this year, all of which will add a touch of class and style to your winter wonderland and will add a little sparkle to your overall Christmas experience as you count down the sleeps to Santa’s arrival.Posted in Christmas,Christmas in July,Christmas Trees,Xmas,Xmas in July,Xmas Trees | Tagged Christmas,Christmas in July,Christmas Trees,Xmas,Xmas in July,Xmas Trees | Leave a comment
So many lights to choose from and so little time left to deck the halls in a more stylish way than last year’s efforts. What a disaster! It all started out with a handful of fairy lights subtly placed around the living room and ended up looking more like millions of glo-worms lining the walls but without the cute factor. Don’t even ask me about my electricity bill as I’m still trying to pay it off. No, this year will be different – I’m on a mission to create a Christmas glow around the home without causing eye damage due to high voltage glare.
What seems like such a simple task, purchasing indoor Christmas lights, is made so impossibly stressful on account of the vast number of styles available, the better than ever sales on the high street and the immeasurable number of websites offering great deals on the latest lines of fashionable designs. Nevertheless, this will not get the better of me; I will proceed with confidence whether it is for a box of fairy lights or the biggest fibre optic tree in the store.
Some friends of mine actually admit to enjoying the process of walking for hours around crowd-infested shops in a bid to find the best, brightest and cheapest lights for their homes. They search through messy shelves that are teaming with opened boxes and scattered random items that have so obviously been abandoned by some other customer who decided they weren’t getting the deal they were hoping for. What’s worse, they often have their children with them when they do this who have an innate skill for knocking things off such messy shelves. Not my idea of a fun shopping experience. This is why I do the majority of my Christmas purchasing online.
There are some fantastic websites now that are completely dedicated to Christmas items, with pages specifically for lights alone and often with guidelines on what’s new and how to get the most stylish look for less money than other sites of similar content. The easy to read sites are designed to assist people like me who have difficulty choosing from all available styles. They explain what each kind of lighting system is best used depending on your styling needs: with LED, solar, outdoor/indoor lights, fairy lights, fibre optics all separated, I can make a more informed and less impulsive decision for the first time in my “Christmas-light-buying” life.
So long as I plan ahead and give myself plenty of time to search these websites effectively, cuppa in hand of course, I’m sure to find the whole process much more satisfying than braving the inevitable queues at the shops. I’m too easily dazzled by packaging in the shops and would come out with so many “bargains” that, as usual, half of them would end up staying in their boxes as I contemplate my foolishness when it comes to bright sparkly things with a price mark down. Yes, it’s safer for a woman like me to shop online for lights.Posted in Christmas,Christmas in July,Christmas Lights,Christmas Trees,Xmas,Xmas in July,Xmas Lights,Xmas Trees | Tagged Christmas,Christmas in July,Christmas Trees,Xmas,Xmas in July,Xmas Lights,Xmas Trees | Leave a comment
