Cottage-Style Christmas Tree with Balsam Hill
Welcome to Christmas at the 1891 avenues cottage! We are so excited to be in our “new” old forever home! We are knee-deep in renovations but so excited to spend our first Christmas here!
5 Ways to Create the Perfect Cottage-Style Christmas Tree
The moment I walked in the door I knew I wanted a gorgeous, tall Christmas tree nestled into the curve of our spiral staircase. So when Balsam Hill contacted me and asked if I wanted to pick out a tree to decorate I was thrilled and I knew exactly where to put my tree!!
Pick Out the Perfect Tree
Owning a Balsam Hill tree has always been a dream of mine because I love how realistic their trees are. I also love the quality of their trees and the selection. They seriously have every kind of Christmas tree you could want, and in so many different heights. There is a Balsam Tree for ANY size or shape of home out there!
I chose Balsam hill’s 12-foot flocked Frosted Alpine Balsam Fir tree. I love the look of Balsam Fir trees and I didn’t want to overcrowd my space with a really full tree.
Another reason I chose Balsam Hill, is their trees are PRE FLUFFED™ with memory wire branches that help them retain their ideal form. I took the tree out of the box, put the branches in the base and my tree was ready in minutes.
I also loved that the tree comes with a case to keep it in. Balsam Hill even gives you gloves to wear while putting the tree up! So awesome!
Flocked Trees Look Great with Cottage Decor
I love the look of flocked trees. And Balsam Hill has
light-green True Needle™ foliage, which makes the branches look very realistic. The flocking on this tree is gorgeous and I love the way the lights play against the white of the flocking and the green needles. It is the perfect tree for a cottage home.
Cottage-Style White Christmas Lights
I also love Balsam Hill’s Celestial™ Fairy Lights, which are smaller lights than traditional trees I’ve had in the past, but they are brighter and so pretty! I think they add extra sparkle to the tree.
Add Cottage-Style Ornaments
Because my tree is so gorgeous, I didn’t want to weigh it down with a lot of decorations and add-ons. It didn’t need them! In keeping with my cottage style, I ordered their Farmhouse Christmas Ornaments. I love the colors, the mix of materials and the plaid designs. It reminds me of a wintry cottage – which is exactly what our cottage is!!
Antique Ornaments Fit the Cottage Look
I also ordered their Antiqued Snowflake Ornament Set. The snowflakes come in sets of four different sizes and patterns that are hand-made. The snowflake ornaments have a antique look, they remind me of ornaments that are passed down from generation to generation. I also love the crystal-like beads that sparkle in the trees lights! I also ordered their Antiqued Snowflake Tree Topper that matches the ornaments. It looks amazing at the top of our tree, soaring toward the top of the cottage.
Add Handmade or Vintage Ornaments
I added a few handmade wooden signs with my Christmas theme this year – FALALALA. I love how simple and pretty the tree looks in our cottage home!
Add Ribbon or a Fabric Garland
I loved the gorgeous blue color in the farmhouse christmas ornaments so I added some satin ribbon and a throw on my cottage bench that brings out the blues in the ornaments and also complements the reds and greens. So pretty!
A Textured Tree Collar
One of my very favorite parts of the tree is the Woven Tree Collar I ordered. I love the texture and color of the tree collar. It’s the perfect addition to the cottage look I was going for with this tree.
