Get in the Holiday Spirit at Festival of Trees

Festival of Trees

The holiday season is approaching, and you know what that means: It’s almost time to decorate your Christmas tree. But what if you need inspiration to create the best tree possible? Look no further than the Festival of Trees at the Greenville Convention Center. This event will be going on from Nov. 24 to Dec. 23, so you have plenty of time to stop by and admire all the trees around. With over 100 decorated trees to look at, each of which displays a different theme, you’ll never run out of ideas for your own. Now, check out these tree-decorating tips for the holidays.

Choose Between Live and Artificial

Do you love the smell of a freshly cut pine tree in your living room? Or would you rather have an artificial tree that you can use year after year? Before you do anything else, you need to decide what kind of tree you want to have.

While real trees are beautiful and smell great, they can cause a big mess by dropping pine needles all over the floor. You also have to find a way to throw them out after the season is over. And some have allergies that prevent them from having a live tree in the house. While an artificial tree can be used again and again, it can be pricey when you buy it. Weigh the pros and cons of both options before you decide what’s best for you.

Hang the Lights First

Some people make the mistake of putting on garland or ornaments first before stringing the lights up. But this will cause you a lot of frustration. The lights are the trickiest part of the tree-decorating process, and you want to be able to really get the lights where you want them. That will be difficult if there are already things hanging on the tree. Therefore, string the lights before you continue decorating.

Pick a Theme or Color

While you could just put up a wide variety of ornaments, it can be fun to choose a theme color. This could be gold, silver, white, or red. It will really give the tree and the ornaments on it a feeling of unity and looks especially pulled together.

You’re going to need to find some way to get that tree home to your house. The best way to do that is in a vehicle from Barbour Hendrick Honda in Greenville, North Carolina. We can help you find a vehicle with plenty of storage space to fit everything you need. Come see us after the Festival of Trees!
