Balsam Hill Christmas Tree

My Christmas tree went up the day before Thanksgiving and I love it! For almost all my life I’ve put up Christmas decorations the dayΒ after Thanksgiving, but Thanksgiving was so late this year that I wanted to do my tree early. But then I got busy so I only got to do it the day before….so not that much earlier, but whatever. Anyway, I have wanted a Balsam Hill Christmas Tree for years and being the Hallmark Christmas movie junkie that I am (if you are too then you know that they always have Balsam Hill Christmas trees!) it was my top choice.

So you may remember last year I wrote about my new, beautiful 7.5 ft. Christmas tree from Costco. As many of you know,Β  I’m in the process of moving and I bought a condo in the early fall. Long story short, my brother kept the Costco tree at the townhouse which ended up being okay since I don’t have the high ceiling in my new living room and it gave me a chance to get a Balsam Hill tree.

After much browsing, I chose to get the 6.5 ft. Norway Spruce Narrow Pre-Lit tree for various reasons. I liked the look of the Norway Spruce trees and even though the regular, more full one looks gorgeous, I thought it might take up a little too much space in the corner of my living room. Also, the narrow one was less expensive and Balsam Hill can be a bit pricey.

I decorated my tree with a few sentimental ornaments and the ones I bought last year when I created my red, green, & gold themed tree. The red, green, & gold set were from Michaels last year. I added mirrored red beaded garland, which I also bought last year from Target and are still available this year so I will link to the garland (here) and below.

The only new Christmas tree decoration from last year on my new tree is the tree topper. Last year I didn’t have a tree topper (or “finial d’arbre” as I learned in the Hallmark Christmas movie Christmas at the Plaza) but this year I bought the most beautiful lit angel tree topper. The angel is playing an instrument and since her “skirt” is like strings the light really shines through.

I finished off the tree with a glittery white tree skirt since the plaid one I bought last year would be a little big for this tree.

So cool thing about this tree is that it comes with a canvas bag with extra bulbs and parts and then a big bag where you can zip up all the parts to the tree. My tree comes in 3 (I think) sections so I saved the tags so I remember what order to assemble it in next year. The fact that it’s pre-lit is a huge help and cuts down on the time it takes to decorate. It also comes with gloves for you to wear while you’re doing all the fluffing. I love that you can do white lights, multicolor, or both! And it comes with a remote so that is awesome and makes me feel high-tech.

I love how my tree turned out! Despite the initial setback of having to buy a new tree, I really love this one and I love the lights on this tree a little more than my old one. The clear/white lights are more white than yellow and the colored lights lean more pastel than neon.

I can’t link to my tree, but I’ve linked to my exact tree topper, beaded garland, and similar ornaments!

P.S. I’ll be sharing my other Christmas decorations in a post next week!
