Hi, Friends! I have been so excited to share my new Christmas tree with you! I’ve been searching for the perfect flocked and slim Christmas tree for a while. I particularly wanted a tree that I could tuck into a corner and wouldn’t take up much space. But, I didn’t want a really narrow pencil tree. I also wanted a tree where the shape mimicked a real Christmas tree and not a perfectly shaped upside down triangle (you know the ones!). Then, I got an email from Nearly Natural asking me if I would be interested in trying one of their Christmas trees! To say I was thrilled is an understatement!
*I was gifted this Christmas tree by Nearly Natural, but all opinions are my own.
Now, I was familiar with Nearly Natural since they have the most amazing and life-like faux plants. I’m sure you’ve seen them in the homes of some of your favorite bloggers. I particularly love this olive tree and it’s been on my wish list for a while. But, I didn’t know that they also have a line of Christmas trees, wreaths, garlands, and florals!
flocked slim CHRISTMAS TREE
I received the tree quickly and was so excited to get it set up in my dining room! That’s where it will be showcased this year, but I’m already thinking about where I want to put this tree next year! But, really, it’s just the perfect slim size that I could use in almost any room in my smallish house!
The tree was so easy to put together. There are just three sections and I was able to do it myself. Instead of the standard tree stand that is included, I chose to use a vintage planter with a blanket tucked around the base of the tree to hold it in place.
What makes this tree sets this tree apart from a lot of artificial Christmas trees, are the lights. This tree has the most gorgeous round/globe LED warm white lights! They just glow against the flocked branches!
Decorating the Tree
To decorate the tree, I used mercury glass ornaments that I’ve had for years and some new green ornaments that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. Plus, there are a few white paper stars and a few white and silver ornaments.
Then, I used this chunky chenille yarn to create as a garland. I initially thought I would create a crocheted chain with it, but that made it too thick. So, I left it as is and love the look.
The finishing touch to the tree are the sage green ribbons that I draped on the end of some of the tree’s branches and used to tie on some of the mercury glass ornaments.
I’m not finished decorating this space and I’ve already made a few changes since I took these photos, but this is the overall color theme for the dining room and kitchen this year! And, I think this slim flocked tree looks magical! There’s more Christmas decor to come at my Christmas Home Tour next Tuesday, December 7!
