Nothing decorates a home during the holiday season better than a Christmas tree. One of the best investments your family can make for this holiday season and the many more to come is investing in “Life Like” trees and decorative greenery. Transform your home into a holiday showcase – soft greenery bedecked in twinkling lights. Plus, you won’t have to worry about watering or cleaning up any pine needle messes.
Get a jump start on your holiday decorations this season by stocking up on greenery that will greatly enhance the festivities.
1. Find the tree variety that best suits your personality. Homestead Gardens sells artificial aspen pines, cedar pines, balsam pines, fraser firs, douglas firs, nordman firs, Anchorage firs, Yukon firs, Scotch pines and more, so you can have the perfect tree in your house. Homestead Gardens has its entire inventory of artificial trees on sale for up to 50 percent off, plus you’ll receive a gift card valued between $5 and $100 with your purchase.
2. Add greenery where appropriate. Have a stairwell with open rails? Weave an artificial garland of pine throughout. If possible, add some color with a gold or red ribbon to further embellish the decoration. Also consider using wreaths of multiple sizes in unexpected places. Artificial wreaths leave less mess inside the home, and can be hung on the backs of furniture, on bathroom or bedroom doors and even from tall light stands.
3. Make your greenery sparkle. Some artificial trees come pre-lit, making setup easy for the holiday season. For those that come unlit, you can add your special decorating touch by adding strings of lights in the perfect colors to match your interior decor. Invite your children to help with testing the lights to make certain all bulbs shine brightly. Also think about adding a short strand of lights to your wreaths or garlands to further make the room shine.
When purchasing your holiday decorations, be sure to also purchase containers for everything so you can safely store it come January for use again next year.
