Pastel colors are commonly associated with Easter as they have a lighthearted quality that perfectly reflects the beauty and freshness of spring. This season, give your home a fabulous Easter-inspired look with one of these beauties from Treetopia’s collection of pastel-colored Christmas trees.

1. Pretty in Pink Tree

With its plump profile, soft pink shade, and matching pink lights, Treetopia’s Pretty in Pink Christmas Tree is a fabulous choice for your Easter display. Play up the sweet aspect of this tree by trimming it exclusively with decorated Easter eggs.

Start off by selecting plain Easter eggs in pastel colors that work well with pink, such as mint green, pale yellow, and sky blue. If you find preparing homemade Easter eggs too time-consuming, get artificial ones online or at your favorite craft store. Many of these faux eggs have holes at the top for hangers like ribbon, string, or fishing line. Some are even pre-threaded for your convenience.

You can decorate your entire Easter tree with these basic eggs, or mix in fancier ones made of yarn, fabric, or even recycled materials. No matter how traditional or elaborate your eggs are, just keep within your pastel color palette and you’ll have an endearing Easter display that’s easy on the eyes and the heart.

2. Baby Blue Tree

Treetopia’s Baby Blue Christmas Tree has a cool, contemporary look that provides an exciting burst of color to both your Christmas and Easter home decorating. An artificial tree this distinctive lends itself well to a more upbeat, stylized theme.

Dive into your storage closet and pick out pastel or frosted Christmas balls to reuse. You’ll want to work with colors that complement blue, so purchase some yellow and orange ball ornaments if you don’t have any. After hanging a few on the tree, it’s time to add your Easter-centric pieces.

Trim the rest of your tree with a variety of Easter symbols, such as decorated eggs, chicks, carrots, and of course, Easter bunnies. Stick to ornaments with classic, child-oriented designs, or those with more modern, graphic styling. You can also mix and match the two looks to create a unique, eclectic holiday tree that‘s sure to wow your Easter crowd.

3. Lively Lavender Tree

If you prefer a more subtle Easter vignette, consider Treetopia’s Lively Lavender Christmas Tree. This artificial Christmas tree has a delicate violet tint that exudes grace and refinement, making it a great match for homes with soft and serene spaces.

Begin the foundation for this theme by decorating your Easter Christmas tree with assorted ball ornaments in a muted monochromatic palette. Avoid jewel-toned colors and keep to gentle shades, such as mauve, orchid, and medium purple.

Next, accentuate your tree with Christmas balls, Easter eggs, or other appropriate décor with analogous colors, such as rose pink, powder blue, and the signature robin egg blue of Tiffany’s. Finally, add in a few silver accessories and trinkets, like metallic icicles or vintage rings for a hint of sparkle and shine.

Adorn your favorite pastel-colored tree with festive Easter decorations for a lively and stylish celebration of spring!

Your marvelous Christmas tree has been a great source of beauty and inspiration all season long, but now it deserves a well-earned beauty sleep.

To preserve the look and condition of your tree, avoid packing your tree in the original cardboard box it arrived in. Once a tree has been fluffed, squeezing it back into its box is difficult and can damage the its branches, tips, and lights. Also, cardboard boxes deteriorate over time, potentially exposing your tree to pests, dust, and the elements.

If you’re serious about keeping your tree in tip-top shape, consider these top-notch storage solutions.

Just like most artificial Christmas trees today, tinsel Christmas trees are made with a plastic called polyvinyl chloride, or PVC. The difference is that the needles of tinsel Christmas trees are coated with a special film that makes them shiny and metallic.

Conventional PVC trees and tinsel trees have a lot in common: their cost, weight, and durability are about the same. However, each type of tree has some unique advantages over the other. If you’re deciding which type to get this holiday season, then use this handy guide to help you out.

PVC Christmas Trees

1. Although tinsel trees are available in different colors, PVC artificial Christmas trees have a greater variety of shades to choose from. Pink PVC trees, for instance, can range in hue from baby pink, bubblegum pink to hot pink.

Treetopia's Pretty In Pink Christmas Tree

PVC trees also come in designs and themes which are not usually found in tinsel trees, such as striped, patriotic, and camouflage patterns. (more…)

Many offices choose to dress their premises with Christmas decorations to spread the joy of the holiday season. Here are several artificial Christmas tree options to brighten up your workplace.

Full-sized Trees

If you’re tasked to procure a full-sized tree for your reception area or break room, here are some useful tips to remember:

1. Generally, a traditional, full-silhouette green tree, such as Treetopia’s Oh Christmas Tree, is a safe and suitable choice for most offices. For offices with more casual, contemporary, or distinct interior décor, you may opt for more stylized Christmas trees, such as Treetopia’s Purple Groove Tinsel Christmas Tree. When considering your options, keep in mind that the artificial Christmas tree you purchase will most likely be used again in the next few years.

Office time is valuable, so choose a tree that’s easy to assemble and take down. Look for features such as hinged branches and pre-installed lights to make setting up faster and more convenient. (more…)

Shimmering, silvery tinsel can make your Christmas tree look dazzling and festive. It might take a bit more effort putting it up, but it is well worth it! We are mad about these fancy strands and the way they bring us back in time to traditional Christmases past. We’ll talk more about great decorating ideas using tinsel, and as a special treat, we will show you how to dress up your Treetopia Shimmering Silver Pencil tree.

Putting tinsel on the tree

Invented in Germany in 1610, tinsel was originally intended to mimic the look of icicles and enhance the flickering lights of candles on the tree. To achieve this effect on a traditional Christmas tree, start by making sure all your ornaments are in place and then switch on your tree lights.

Beginning at the top of the tree, take two or three strands of tinsel at a time and place them gently on the outer needle tips. Make sure the tinsel strands are spaced evenly apart. Don’t simply place strands of tinsel carelessly or you’ll end up with clumps of tangled tinsel which makes your tree look sloppy. Do take your time and enjoy this simple, once-a-year pleasure.

Using other tinsel décor in the home

To add sparkle to your holiday table, fill clear glass vases and bowls with tinsel and display them as is, or add in poinsettias and hollies. To add pizazz to your table settings, roll up flatware in a cloth napkin and wrap the bundle with a single strand of tinsel tied in a neat little bow or secure with thread and a white tinsel pompom.

Around the house, you may drape tinsel around headboards and mirrors, or tack them to windows or door frames. But take extra precaution if you have young children or pets in your home. These can get snagged and cause injuries.

Decorating your Shimmering Silver Pencil tree

This slim and sleek Treetopia Christmas tree is bursting with glittery light-reflecting needles, making it a tinsel-lover’s dream! With a traditional green tree, the focus is on the ornaments, but with a silver tree like this, you’ll want all of the attention on its sparkling branches.

Treetopia Shimmering Silver Pencil Tree

Decorate this slim tree with small colorful glass Christmas balls or with any themed ornaments, but do so in moderation to avoid overwhelming the tree. Adorning your tree with vintage ornaments creates a stylish look and is an elegant homage to the aluminum trees of the 1950’s. Christmas tree decorating need not be complicated. You can jazz up your home instantly with this radiant beauty.

If you’re in the market for a new artificial Christmas tree, you may be a bit overwhelmed by the dizzying range of shapes, sizes, and colors you can choose from. The most basic decision you probably need to make is whether to buy a traditional green tree or a contemporary colored one. Let’s break down and check out the advantages of each one.

Green Trees

A familiar appearance

It’s probably safe to say that most of us grew up with traditional Christmas trees, such as the Treetopia Oh Christmas Tree.

Our fond memories of the mountain of gifts under our green tree are ones we’ll cherish forever. It is precisely this feeling of nostalgia and comfort that makes a green tree so irresistible. Plus, knowing that we’re keeping a time-honored tradition alive makes our heart swell with pride.

Highly realistic foliage

Most of today’s artificial Christmas trees are made from polyvinyl chloride plastic or PVC. An artificial tree usually has flat, stiff PVC needles, which can limit the tree’s realism. However, a number of manufacturers now offer trees made of polyethylene or PE. This type of tree is incredibly realistic, mimicking the color, shape, and texture of a live tree with amazing accuracy. Currently, the majority of PE trees are available only in natural green shades to further enhance realism.
