trend & true tuesday: christmas trees

Colin and I both come from real-tree-families, but we also live in a tiny walk-up apartment, so finally this year we broke down and discussed the idea of getting an artificial tree. Ultimately, we decided against it (I’ll spare you all the lengthy list of pros and cons), but before we made a final decision I read A LOT of reviews on different affordable options for artificial trees, and I thought someone should benefit from it.

Trend: Flocked.

I love the romantic elegant look of a good flocked tree. It’s just SO PRETTY. One of the points of debate was flocked vs. not, and I was team flocked. However, I’ll admit that the flocked look has only recently come into its heyday, and it’s TBD whether it will stick around. BUT the good news is that not all decent flocked trees are $1000. After reading a billion reviews, this one was the affordable winner.

True: Classic Fir.

Colin was vehemently against the flocked, and I get it. There’s something so classic about a simple fir tree with white lights. I do think if you’re going un-flocked, it’s safe to make the investment in a high end artificial tree, but if you’re looking for a more affordable option, this one has good reviews, and once again was recommended by TIBAL (seriously go follow her.)
