Video: Table Christmas Tree: A Compact And Decorative Festive Tree
As the holiday season approaches, the dilemma of the prettiest Christmas decoration is still relevant. As usual, children want the tallest tree and the most opulent decoration. But from a realistic, financial and ecological point of view, this dream is not within everyone's reach. No less original and special, the table Christmas tree remains a perfect alternative not only to respect the tradition linked to the festive decoration of the house, but above all to be responsible for the environment.
What is the point of a small table Christmas tree?
The small Christmas tree has all the attractions of a conventional festive tree. This means that its compact dimensions do not prevent it from having an impeccable aesthetic. Quite the contrary! Many people find miniature hanging decorations more original. Another advantage of the small table Christmas tree is its practicality. The compact size makes it an ideal decorative object to put on the living room coffee table, the dining table, the kitchen island, the console in the hall and even on the desk.
Also not to forget the considerably more affordable price of small trees compared to standard trees. Regarding the environmental impact, you can buy a tree grown in a container which has a higher chance of recovery if you replant it after the holidays. What better opportunity for you to educate children about respecting the planet and the environment!
A small artificial Christmas tree or a natural tree?
If you feel that the place of a Christmas tree is in nature, there is always the possibility of buying an artificial tree that you can then decorate as you wish. Investing in a single artificial tree that you will reuse over the years means reduced and more responsible plastic consumption. Less consumption equals less pollution and waste! And if you want to avoid plastic at all costs, then you have the option of making a table Christmas tree yourself from natural materials. There are a multitude of DIY projects suitable for beginners in DIY that will certainly find a place in your decoration!
How to decorate a small natural Christmas tree to make it an ecological centerpiece?
What could be better than a small natural Christmas tree to invite the forest into your home for the end of the year celebrations? Prefer a high tree in a container that you can transfer to a burlap bag. This idea is perfect for nature or rustic style decorations. If so, it's best to leave the tree as natural as possible. To decorate it, just add a few pine cones here and there so as not to overload its fragile branches. As garlands, prefer a tartan print ribbon, tied around the jute bag.
