Picking the right tree
Different countries prefer different styles of Christmas tree and throughout the world everyone has their own methods of decoration. This is why it is so important (and good fun) picking your own tree just before the festivities start in earnest.
As an example, if you have lots of dangling decorations it will be advisable not to have a tree which is too bushy as they will not hang at their best but just rest on the fronds below. If you have lots of low voltage lights you may prefer a dense tree. as the they will need to rest on the outer part of the the fronds.
The colour of the tree is also important; Lighter coloured trees go very well with light contemporary homes but they will also look brighter in a dark corner.
Darker trees will look perfect outside and in dark rooms if they have good lights, where they will show the lights to their full potential.
As you may imagine, it is best to have a good look at the room in which you plan to put your tree. It is great to have a big tree in a hallway but a lot of the Christmas fealing is then lost in the lounge; Why not have two trees?!
Don’t be afraid to trim the back of a tree so that it fits closer to the wall/corner. Sometimes a bargain can be had with a tree that is not equilateral; Look for one that has an excellent side and the lesser side will go against the wall. This also means you will need less decorations! For more information contact your local Needlefresh retailer
