Hands down the centerpiece to our Christmas decor this year is our King of Christmas tree. It literally is the best fake Christmas tree we’ve ever had. Growing up in Texas, we’ve always had fake Christmas trees. While I used to dream of having a real tree, as an adult I’ve found that fake are SO much easier, less messy, and worth the investment because they can be reused.
The King of Christmas tree we got this year is the third Christmas tree we’ve owned since we’ve been married, and absolutely the best. Our first tree was a hand-me-down, our second was the cheapest one we could get from Hobby Lobby, and then this year we finally got our King of Christmas Prince Flock. Immediately I noticed a difference with the King of Christmas tree.
WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THE KING OF CHRISTMAS TREES:
- Full, sturdy branches that fan out nice and wide
- Noticeably less gaps
- Easy assembly
- Looks more realistic than most fake Christmas trees
- Lights, if you choose, are put on very well and cords are hidden nicely
- Flocking, if you choose, is extremely thick and does not come off easily. Noticeably less mess than a typical flocked tree
- Needle tips are a mix of realistic and classic
- Easy storage and reusable
I know some people have strong opinions about fake vs real trees, but less clean up, less maintenance- it’s a no-brainer for me. I don’t even miss that “real tree smell” on my King of Christmas tree because I have essential oils that I use to scent my tree. I put drops of oil on little reed sticks and just shove them into the tree. They work out well! Some of my favorites are Northern Lights Black Spruce, Cypress, Winter Nights, and Believe from Young Living. All smell amazing and get the job done!
I decided to decorate our King of Christmas Prince tree with rose, light teal, and gold ornaments. We have a kind of boho vibe in our living room with some macrame pieces and this flowed perfectly with it. I also grabbed a galvanized metal tree collar. I was surprised to hear many people hadn’t heard about a tree collar but I absolutely love it. In the past our dog, Pearl, would pee on tree skirts, so I was glad to see this alternative and I’d have to wash them over and over by hand.
