Christmas Trees

You can’t hang all of those great Christmas ornaments without first having a Christmas tree.   There are two options when it comes to Christmas trees – real or artificial.   I grew up always having a real Christmas tree and I must admit I loved the smell of pine, but I know my mother hated all of the pine needles that would drop!!

When I moved to New Zealand I had trouble finding a nice looking ‘real’ tree and so I brought my first artificial Christmas tree and we’ve used an artificial tree every year since.   My daughter has actually never had a so called ‘real’ Christmas tree and actually enjoys helping me to assemble the tree as much as some children probably enjoy helping their parents pick a tree to bring home.

Green Christmas Trees or White Christmas Trees?

Here’s a selection of artificial Christmas trees that I’ve found for you in both traditional green and white which is certainly gaining in popularity over recent years.

Black Christmas Trees

There are lots of different colored Christmas trees available, but in recent years we’re seeing a rise in the number of black Christmas trees being purchased. I think one of the reasons for this is that some people are using a black Christmas tree as a Halloween tree and then re-using the tree as the family Christmas tree. This sounds like a great idea to me and only involves changing out the ornaments (if you like spooky ones for Halloween and more festive ones for Christmas that is).

Of course you might just be looking for a Gothic Christmas tree or want to make a statement. A black tree with silver and/or white ornaments on it can make a very dramatic impact in a room as you walk in, in fact there are lots of fantastic ways to decorate a black tree that I’m very close to convincing my husband that we should get a black tree for our downstairs bar!
