I'm excited to be partnering with King Of Christmas for this review. All opinions are mine alone.
So I’ll just admit it now. I am a self-professed Christmas tree snob. Until recently, my tree always had to be real, a Douglas Fir was a must, and I would make my poor husband spend all day searching for those perfect shaped branches. Basically, when it comes to Christmas trees, I'm about as picky as they come. I never even considered buying an artificial tree until a few years ago. But then I started changing my thinking a little. We bought a new house, and now we actually have space for setting up a second (or third) Christmas tree like I've always wanted to do. We also have two kids now, and free time is about as rare as snow in July. So as much as I love having a fresh tree in the house, I just don’t have the time to go out, find, and set up more than one.
We always have a real Christmas tree in our living room, but this year I decided that I wanted a tree in our Master bedroom as well. I also knew that if we were going to have more than one tree in the house, one of them was going to need to be fake. I was lucky enough to get a five foot tree from King Of Christmas and I have to say that, for an artificial tree, I'm extremely impressed with the quality and happy with my decision. Here's what I like about it....
1. Easy To Assemble
I'm not sure how other artificial trees compare, but this tree was extremely easy to set up. I was able to put it together in less than 10 minutes, without using the instructions, and at the end my floor wasn't covered in a million pine needles! I also happened to get a pre-lit tree so there was no fussing with lights, trying to get them evenly distributed around the tree.
2. Sturdy Base
The base is really sturdy and it holds the tree so that it doesn't wobble around. Olivia has already played several rounds of "Ring Around The Christmas Tree," and luckily, I don't have to worry about this one falling over on top of her.
3. Ideal Fullness
4. Perfect Shape
I love that this tree has a perfect shape. The branches are evenly placed all the way around and there are no weird empty spots. It was nice not having to spend five minutes rotating the tree around and around trying to find the best spot to show off.
5. Perfect Top
I hate when I think I've found that perfect tree and then find that top branch is chopped off or completely crooked and there's no good place to put a topper. Not an issue with my new artificial. The little sprig at the top is perfect for a star...or in our case, Mickey Mouse.
6. Holds Heavy Ornaments
Matt has a collection of Disney ornaments from when he was a kid and they have always been too heavy for me to hang on our Christmas tree. However, my new artificial tree from King Of Christmas has nice strong branches, and I'm finally gonna have a chance to use some of those decorations!
To be honest, the best part about having an artificial tree is that I can put it up as far in advance as I want, without having to worry about it drying out and looking dead by the time Christmas gets here. If you are considering a new artificial tree this year, King Of Christmas is definitely worth a look. They have a big selection of both pre-lit and unlit trees as well as some really pretty decorations and ornaments.
