Decorating Your Home this Season
Nothing makes your home feel as cosy and Christmassy as a beautifully decorated Christmas tree. Whether you decide to go for a frosted artificial or a real Nordman Fir, whichever you choose it is going to make your home look and feel festive. However when choosing between these two tree types you may want to take into consideration the pros and cons.
Artificial trees are a great way to make your home look and feel as seasonal as possible without the mess and hassle that surrounds having a real tree. Not to mention the fact if you take good care of your artificial tree it could last you up to 10 years! All you need to do at the end of December is pack your tree up in it’s original boxing and put it in your loft till next year. We have a range of artificial trees here at Fosseway Garden centre, from Imperial Pine to Nordman Fir.
There’s just something special about a real tree. Perhaps it is the trip down to the local garden centre with the children, Christmas songs playing in the car, as you go to pick your favourite tree. Or maybe it’s the smell of pine needles that fill your home all Christmas. Nothing is better than walking into your home after a hard days work to be hit by the beautiful smell of pine.
But really it doesn’t matter which you prefer, both our artificial trees and our real trees will make your home look fantastic this Christmas.
