If you're intrigued by the idea of LED artificial pre lit Christmas trees but can't bring yourself to sacrifice the long-lived family tradition of chopping down a real tree for your home, you're not alone. However, just because you don't make the artificial tree the focal point of the living room doesn't mean you can't use some in your holiday overall decorating. Why not spread some holiday cheer to the exterior of your home? How can you use artificial pre lit trees outdoors? Place a sparkling pre lit tree on either side of the walkway in front of your house to create a yuletide walkway.
If you don't want to spend the cash on larger trees, four foot models will look just as beautiful and you can mount them on stakes to make them taller. This is a fantastically festive idea that you can keep up all through the holiday season. However, to make it even more special, only put them out for special parties or get-togethers.
Tis' the season to be jolly…and to throw parties. Whether you're hosting a small gathering or a formal black tie event, you've got a lot of work to do. If you find yourself playing the role of hostess or host this holiday season this year, keep your cool; there are ways to make it less complicated! First and for most, you're going to need a tree. If you're out to impress your guests and save time on decorating, kill two birds with one stone by looking into LED artificial pre lit trees.
These trees are simple to assemble and even simpler to decorate—the lights are already on them! In addition, those babies have 200,000+ hours to shine before you have to worry about replacing them. The real beauty is, however, that it'll look like you spent hours stringing lights on these trees. Here are some other simple decorating ideas to make the rest of your house shine as bright as that tree: • Place potted poinsettias and hanging mistletoe around the entertaining room
So, you're having a holiday party in your home and you're out to impress…what can you do? First of all, get that gorgeous massive fir situated and decorate it perfectly. Use colors that coordinate with all of the other decorations you will be using in the room and around the house.
While the traditional red and green scheme is always a hit, incorporating ivory as well as gold and/or silver can give your home a much more eloquent feel. It's a good idea to use a lot of candles to create ambiance—but make sure the lighting is adequate enough to allow guests to navigate through your home. Do you have a lot of windows facing your back yard/ If so, here's an inspired idea that will have your guest “ooing” and “ahhing” all night long:
Place LED pre lit Christmas trees in sturdy planters and place them in areas where they can be viewed clearly through the windows from indoors. Arrange them on the patio or back lawn to create an eye-catching contrast to the live tree inside—especially if they are covered in snow.
Just because it's the holiday season doesn't mean that you have to decorate your entire house with the traditional red and green hoopla. While you probably have fond childhood memories of a house decked out with giant red bows, mistletoe, garland, and lush green wreaths, you don't have to carry on the tradition. Why not make a holiday decorating scheme that suits you and your tastes? If subtle and elegant is more your style, tone it down a bit with some natural ornaments. Surprisingly, natural ornaments aren't always green.
The first step you should take is to look into LED pre lit artificial trees. Order one with all white lights; this will create a nice, neutral decorating base that will illuminate your decorations. Next, think in terms of yellows and oranges—nothing will fill a room with more sunshine than vivid citrus tones. Place oranges, tangerines, lemons, and clementines in pieces of sheer fabric. Next, secure the fruits within the fabric and hang then from the tree with ivory-colored bows (either tie them directly to the branches or create loops from which to hang them).
To finish off the display, place bowls of citrus fruits around the room. Not only will the entire room be decorated beautifully but it will smell great as well.
Just because your dead set on a freshly cut Balsam fir to display in your family room doesn't mean that you can't buy a LED artificial pre lit Christmas tree or two to decorate the exterior of your house with. If you're the type who likes the outside of your house to look as festive as the inside, you're not the only one.
The truth of the matter is, however, that lining the trees in your front lawn with strings of Christmas lights can be a pain. And, what's even more of a pain is the task of taking them down. Before you pick up some cheap plastic illuminated reindeer and a sleigh to slap in the middle of your lawn, why not consider a more tasteful decorating option? Place a couple of LED pre lit trees in your planters and arrange them around your lawn, walkway, or garden.
Whether you use the smaller trees, or splurge for the big ones, you will be able to add tasteful and beautiful holiday cheer to the exterior of your home without the hassle. And, the best part is that these trees are reusable and will last you decades—without ever even having to change annoying bulbs.
Being the hostess with the mostess can be tough job! If you don't want to host a holiday dinner that is likely to be ho-hum, why not throw in a little Southern flair that is sure to create a buzz?! Instead of a sit-down dinner, plan out a rich, culinary buffet inspired by Southern Christmas traditions.
Place a large table (or the dining room table) in the main entertaining room. This arrangement will look best if placed in front of the hearth but, if you don't have a fireplace, set it up off to the side of the room, away from the center area.
Next, place twin LED artificial prelit trees behind the table, close to the wall (if you have a fireplace, set them up on either side of it). Conveniently, you won't have to apply lights or worry about pesky needles falling into your food spread. You should, however, add simple silver balls and icicles to increase the sparkling effect the trees will create. Cover the table with a nice tablecloth and use holiday flower displays or decorative bowls filled with ornaments as centerpieces. Finally, spread the food out buffet style.
Here are some traditional Southern holiday dishes to put out:
If your household is as busy as most, romantic candlelit dinners for two can be hard to come by. If you want to truly surprise your sweetheart, arrange a beautiful and tender dinner with a holiday theme. Aside from the day-to-day hustle and bustle, the holiday season can put even more chaos into your lives. It's hard to find the time to set up a tree, decorate, shop, and complete normal daily tasks! While you can't do everything for your special someone, you can help take the load off.
Here's a great idea: Order one of those great LED artificial prelit Christmas trees (if you want this to be a surprise have it delivered to your office or a neighbor's door). Then, before your honey gets home, set it up yourself—you'll be amazed at how quick and simple it is. Next, create place settings to impress; break out the crystal and fine china and even use those fancy cloth napkins.
Finally, order take-out from a nice restaurant and pop a holiday CD into the stereo. When you're sweetie gets home he or she will definitely appreciate the romantic and thoughtful gesture. And, to top it off, with the gorgeous glow from the tree you won't even need to light those candles.
If you're the decorating type you're going to want to do add a little more holiday pizzazz to your home then simply setting up a giant fir in the family room. Since the foyer or entryway to your home is the first thing that guests will see when they enter your home, this is a great place to start. Why not place an additional Christmas tree in this area? For convenience sake, look into LED pre lit artificial Christmas trees, they're simple to assemble and need only be plugged in—no stringing lights.
*If you want a tasteful, elegant decorating theme, opt for the LED pre lit tree with white lights. Then, decorate the tree using gold and ivory balls. Finally, tie small ivory bows to the branches and top the whole thing off with a gold star. This beautiful understated tree is sure to lure in the compliments.
