We always buy fresh Christmas trees. It makes it hard to live the life of a blogger though, since bloggers start decorating for Christmas earlier and earlier these days!
Nothing compares to a fresh cut tree though. I visit the same tree lot year after year because they have my beloved silver tip trees. We usually just have them put a stand on there and bring it home, and we did that this year too, but it’s just not standing straight. Plus, I can never get my tree collar to fit around it – I didn’t want to have to trim off 2 layers of branches either. So…I figured it was time to invest in a legit Christmas tree stand.
I wanted one that functioned as well as it looked and was reasonably priced. For some reason that was tall order. I finally found one that worked! I ordered it and it should be here tomorrow. I figured I’d share what I found in case you all are looking too!
