Happy Monday everyone!
After posting a shot of my new tree on Instagam yesterday I have received so many questions about my new flocked tree and the pedestal style urn that I use to hold it in place. Hopefully I can answer all of your questions with this post but if not, make sure to ask in the comments below. :)
This year I ventured into a new territory, artificial flocked Christmas trees. A few years ago my family and I went with our first faux tree… Let me tell you, it was a huge step for me and my family as we loved our real Christmas tree tradition. I felt comfortable making the transition however since my daughter was a little older and we had done the Christmas tree farm thing more times than I can count. ;) After a while we all decided that maybe getting a faux/artificial tree would be the easiest approach for our lifestyle. We often travel during the holiday season and the last thing I wanted to worry about while gone is keeping my tree watered. Plus, so many of my friends had artificial trees at this point and I was so impressed by how real they looked.

When I looked for my first artificial tree a few years ago I comparison shopped in person so I could get a better idea of what to look for. I found that the branches looked and felt real on the more expensive trees and the coloring seemed a lot closer to the fresh green tones found on the natural trees. They definitely had more LED lights and the tree usually came in 3 pieces that connected in a much easier way. At the time, the less expensive trees seemed so much less in terms of quality..
