The Perfect Christmas Tree 2021

The Perfect Christmas Tree 2021

Home Edit

‘Tis the season to dust off the mantle, bring out the tinsel and most importantly, set up the tree! With the festive season fast approaching, your Christmas Tree is a focal point thanks to the size, decorations and flashing lights.  More than a centrepiece, it is the one thing families gather around to exchange presents, chat over drinks and nibbles and just ultimately spend time together.


Christmas is unfathomable without a tree. Bringing the tree home, choosing where to set it up, and decorating it are key holiday traditions.  Only then does it really feel like Christmas!


So, if you're looking at taking your tree game up a notch this year, we've found our favourite trees, decorations, lights and bases.  


Tremendous Trees 


Buying an artificial tree has environmental benefits, and is a practical purchase. The Puleo Colorado Spruce can brighten up any living room. The slim style and realistic finish can fit into small corners, and the 7.5-foot length gives it a larger than life feel. Verdant green and incredibly detailed, the Colorado Spruce looks like a real tree but without the shedding needles.

The Kensington will turn heads. Standing 6-feet tall, its hyper-realistic needles are finished with a pastoral-green shade that is pleasing to the eye and makes for the perfect base on which to add your decorations. Traditional, yet modern, the Kensington can be coupled with cookies and mulled wine to create a warm and inviting Christmas atmosphere in your home.

The silver fox of artificial trees, Puleo’s offering of the Kelford Flocked tree, is on-trend. Boasting snow capped needles, the effect of a perfectly frosted tree is delectable. Finishing off at an impressive 7.5-feet, the Kelford can be dressed up with intense red, or sparkly greens. Add this frosted tree to your must-have list this Christmas.

You can drape it with this beautiful Kurt S. Adler Sequin Trim tree skirt. Complete with a floral motif, and sparkling sequins, it will elevate your Christmas tree’s aesthetic.
