Classic, Wintry or Rustic: Choosing Your Ideal Christmas Tree

As we get closer to December, your holiday decorating plans inevitably start taking shape. You find yourself thinking about that vintage set of multicolored bubble lights you picked up. Or maybe you’ll be breaking out all the homemade decorations and ornaments your family has crafted over the years.

Whatever the plan, everyone has decorating traditions they look forward to that signal the beginning of the season. At the center of your home’s holiday decor is your Christmas tree, and whether your family is all about the standards or prefers something unconventional, Tree Classics offers a variety of different choices that will match your holiday spirit.

A Style to Suit Your Celebration

Even though a Christmas tree is a holiday standard, that doesn’t mean it has to have a standard look with a singular kind of style. Whether you prefer the woodsy style you grew up with or something more modern, finding the ideal artificial Christmas tree for you and your family is a cinch. The styles below will give you a cross-section of what we offer:

A classic Christmas showcase from Tree Classics

  • The classic look: For many, Christmas is based around the traditional visuals, such as a tree showcasing a red, green and gold color scheme. Our Classic Fraser Fir and Majestic Blue Spruce exemplify this classic style, with lifelike Real Feel™ needles that won’t dry out and collect on your floor. For those whose living room is tight on space, we also have the slender Kennedy Fir and the Oregonian Slim.A rustic Christmas display from Tree Classics.
  • Rustic and outdoorsy: If you want a tree that looks as if it’s just arrived from the snowy woods, we have choices perfect for a country-themed Christmas. These include the Snow-Kissed Pine, the Snowy Aspen Spruce, the Clifton Pine, and the Alpine Estates Flocked Fir. One of these trees will allow you to enjoy the beauty of winter inside your home alongside some wreathes and pine cones.A wonderfully wintry display from Tree Classics.
  • Wintry trees: For those who prefer something distinct and unconventional, a white or silver tree will definitely stand out and create a wintry look. A Flocked White Fir Deluxe, the Arctic White Pine or the Silver Bells Silver Tree will ensure you have a White Christmas, regardless of the temperature outside. You can also choose a tree with eye-catching multi-colored lights or ones that change colors.

  Perfect Tree, Just a Click Away

No matter the style you’re looking for, our artificial trees will provide the perfect look without adding more tasks to your holiday to-do list. With an artificial tree, you won’t have to worry about daily watering or preventing your pets from trying to climb it. Our trees are easy to set up and to store away when the season is over. Whether you’re making the switch to an artificial tree for the first time, or you’re already familiar, Tree Classics will deliver the style and beauty you’re looking for, with a Christmas tree you’ll be able to use for years to come.

Where and How to Hang your Christmas Garland

A garland is a classic holiday decoration that can be hung almost anywhere and in any way you want. Whether or not it’s embellished with lights or ornaments, the foliage creates a festive atmosphere as it brings a touch of nature into your home. In this post, Tree Classics features some of the spaces where you can display the all-around foliage for a lovely holiday ambience.

Doorways and arches

The entryway is a great place to hang a garland. Often paired with a wreath, a garland bordering the front door receives your guests with cheer and warmth. Flank the door frame with this foliage piece with the help of a set of screw-eyes installed around the frame. The heavier the garland, the more screws you will need. Thread pieces of wire through each screw-eye, and then use these wires to secure the garland.

Garlands are also perfect for highlighting interior arches. Hang a garland here the same way you would on a doorframe. If you don’t want to drill holes on the walls, use command hooks. These hooks can stick to almost any surface and can be removed neatly.

Staircases

Garlands can cheer up a plain staircase. If you want to draw your guests’ eyes upwards, tie it along the handrail on a straight line using yarn or wire. If you want it to serve as an accent for your foyer, create a pattern by making it go in and out of the balusters, or let it drape by tying different segments of the garland to the handrail. For a touch of fun, use ribbons that match your decorating motif.

Fireplace Mantle

Mantle swags are not the only foliage that can go with the fireplace. If you want to cover the entire mantle, use a long garland that you can drape toward the floor. Stick some command hooks on the mantle to keep the garland in its place. For added color or sparkle, clip some ornaments on the garland’s needle tips.

Columns

The columns in the front porch are a good canvas for these verdant decorative pieces. Screw a hook to the ceiling near the pillar, and then attach one end of the garland to the hook with thread or wire. Wrap the garland around the column until it reaches the bottom, letting some areas of the pillar show through. Secure the other end of the garland to the floor with a tack nail. If you want to cover the column entirely, you will need to extend the garland’s length by attaching another piece to the end of the first one. Top off the decorated column with a huge red ribbon for a bright accent.

Ceiling

When bordered with garlands, the porch ceiling is a charming sight, especially when lit with clear or multicolor lights. Screw eye bolts to the ceiling and hang the garlands from them with yarn or wire. Stretch out the foliage to form a straight line, or let it hang loose with some parts draping from the ceiling.

With creativity and imagination, you can discover some more places, and ways to hang these timeless Christmas decorations. Adorn your home with garlands to inspire a festive ambience for the holidays.
