Hubby and I bought our first faux Christmas tree about 10 years ago. I love real trees, I grew up with a real tree,I love the smell. the texture, everything.
But (sad face), I am allergic to pine and he hates needles, we also had crawling babies that would put anything in their mouths, so a faux tree was a no-brainer for us.I do still sneak some real greenery in and sniffle for a few weeks.
I thought we were so fancy when we bought our tree, because they had these new pre-lit ones and we were so excited. No more draping lights on branches!
Fast forward to last year,our pre-lit now seemed like a fire hazard, with it’s FIFTEEN plugs that all plugged into each other, and kind of just hung there. It was time for a less dangerous upgrade.
We now have a beautiful tree from Balsam Hill. It’s the Colorado Mountain Spruce.
It’s a beautiful 6.5 feet and just gorgeous and the eclectic runs down the middle,NO extra plugs!
It was very easy to set up in 3 pieces, and it even had some fun, fancy gloves to wear while doing it.
The needles look very real, and hold the heavier ornaments well.
The kids love the color lights, I switch it to the clear when they aren’t home. 🙂
We are so happy with the tree and it fits perfect in our cozy space!
