Balsam Hill For The Holidays
*I was sent the 49″U Shaped Ornament Tree to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.
Everyone knows that Balsam Hill has the most beautiful, realistic trees and garlands ever. They are just like having a real tree without the mess or trouble of a real tree. Did you know that they offer other products? Products that you can use for other holidays, besides just Christmas?
This magnificent Balsam Hill 49″ U-Shaped Ornament Tree is wonderful for displaying ornaments that are special to your family, or just vintage ornaments. We used it for ‘theme’ ornaments this year, with birds and birdhouses hung from it’s branches. Now, the really interesting thing about this ornament tree is that you don’t have to put it away when Christmas is over.
The first thing my oldest daughter said to me is, “Where did you get that great tree?! You can use it for EVERY holiday, just by changing the ornaments!” Yes, she is a genius. She loves to decorate too. We talked about all the things we could use for each holiday. Little cupids, hearts, and red, white and pink bows on it for Valentines Day. Pots of gold and four-leaf clovers are great for St. Patricks Day. Bunnies, chicks and candies, hung in egg halves, would be perfect for Easter. Red, White and Blue striped ribbons, and sparkly flags would make it a great 4th of July. There are so many ways you can dress this tree up through the year.
Hubby has even taken to the tree a little. He wants to put red, white and blue lights on it for the 4th of July and strap specialty fireworks to the limbs. Ok, I admit, first I thought he was joking, and just wanted to blow up my tree, but he sincerely was trying to come up with ideas. The 4th of July is his favorite holiday, so he just added his own spin to the decor ideas. This tree has found a place on the bar in our house for every holiday. I’ll have either the boys, or the grandkids help me decorate it. I think, next year for Christmas, I’ll bake some shaped sugar cookies, and decorate both sides with Royal icing before hanging them from ribbons on the tree!
Balsam Hill has several different shaped Ornament Trees. I think my personal favorite is the S-shaped, but they were out of them when I was looking! The U-shaped, and the Umbrella shaped are wonderful too, all giving you plenty of space to hang ornaments. They also carry stocking holders, candles, and holders, lights, skirts, and of course, their fantastic trees, wreaths and garland!
