Roses may be red and chocolates brown but Treetopia trees win the Valentine crown

valentine tree roses

Love songs on air, women with twinkling eyes and men with nervous smiles, romantic restaurants with a long waiting list – these are some of the signs that Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. However, with the busy schedules of career-driven individuals and equally career-driven partners, romance sometimes takes a back seat. Take a break this Valentine’s Day and treat your partner to a romantic celebration.

When it comes to preparing for a special romantic day, it’s best to be fully prepared and pull out all the stops. These moves may be cheesy, but you can rest assured that by the end of the night, you’ll bring a smile to your partner’s face and feel flames of love ignite once more. Let Treetopia trees be your accomplice as they show you how to kindle love this Valentine’s.


Instead of following the crowd, show the crowd how fabulous you really are

Many choose to follow trends because it’s easier and more accessible since stores are always well-stocked on trendy design items. However, like all predictable things, trends soon run out of style and are quickly replaced by another. More often than not, trends that people can’t get enough of at one point just as quickly go out of fashion, like how the retro trend started gaining popularity again, only to die down months later.

Are ewe just a part of the crowd?

If you’re stumped about how to style your pencil tree, read below.

Pencil Tree Banner

When space around your home is scarce but you want to keep the spirit of Christmas alive, set up a space-saving pencil Christmas tree instead of a  fuller, traditional one. For first time owners of pencil trees or those who have tried but were unsuccessful in their attempts to make it look as fabulous as they imagined, Treetopia has gathered some one-of-a-kind tips and tricks to help you make your tree look more amazing.


Formally Yours Black and White Ornament Set

Having over the top, flashy ornaments hanging on your Christmas tree is not always the best option. Sometimes, you have to take the simple route when decorating, especially since conventional decorations associated with traditional Christmas trees do not always look good on pencil trees. You can choose a minimalistic theme in a monochromatic palette and decorate your tree with ornaments of the same color, but in varying degrees of shade, for a polished and modern look.

Go 3-D

Femme Fatale Glass Heel Ornaments

Go for a dramatic three-dimensional design scheme with your pencil tree decorations by adding the illusion of depth. Creating depth is actually simple. All you need are ornaments in different sizes and a strategy for layering the ornaments around the tree. Place all the smaller ornaments in the inner portion of the tree, while the larger ones should be in full display. Think of the inner parts of the tree as the farther edge of your line of sight, while the outer part is the plane nearer you.

Be Consistent

Starry Night Satin Dream Ornaments

If you do not have the time to create the illusion of depth or arrange Christmas ornaments according to size, you may choose to decorate your pencil tree using only large ornaments instead. This will surely make your tree glamorous and noticeable, because the size of the ornaments creates a stark contrast to the size of the tree. You can even wrap the tree in a garland as a unique finishing touch.

Ribbons and Sashes

Decorate with Ribbons

You can also create a fabulously decorated pencil tree using only ribbons and sashes. These materials are easy to find; you just have to go to your local hobby store and ask for a ribbon or sash with an appropriate width so that it will easily be seen. We are fans of Cheri’s and Kristen’s blogs, which both teach how to decorate using ribbons.

Decorating a pencil tree is actually easy. All you have to do is select chic and stylish materials and ornaments and keep things simple. Leave the bulk of the ornaments off the tree. After all, you did get your pencil tree to save space in your home.

If you have any tips or tricks on how to decorate a pencil Christmas tree, we invite you to share your ideas here.

Do you know why you do the Christmas traditions you grew up with? Read on and find out!

Now that we have stuffed ourselves with a delightful Thanksgiving feast sprinkled with love, we can direct our attention to the next big feast—Christmas. Christmas is certainly one of the holidays with a treasure trove of traditions, but do you know why and how exactly these traditions came about?

Oh Christmas Tree

Oh Christmas Tree

The most popular Christmas icon, especially for children, is the Christmas tree. We’ve all been though the phase of counting how many beautifully wrapped gifts nestled under the tree have our name on it. But did you know that the tradition of decorating trees came long before Christmas itself? It is believed that ancient pagan societies that practiced animism brought and decorated trees indoors to please the spirits and ensure a good harvest. Trees only became linked to Christmas when Christianity started to spread across Germany. The popularization of the modern Christmas tree came about when Prince Albert, originally from Germany, introduced the Christmas tree to England after he married Queen Victoria in 1840.

Christmas Stockings

Red Polka Dotted Christmas Stocking
The tradition of hanging Christmas stockings by the chimney is linked with the origin of Santa Claus’ story. It is believed that St. Nicholas threw three bags of gold coins down the chimney of a poor family whose father could not marry off his daughters because he had no money for dowries. It so happened that the daughters hung their stockings by the fireplace to dry and they caught the bags of gold coins that were dropped.


All That Glitters Wreath and Garland

Wreaths, like Christmas trees, came from a pre-Christian tradition. Their circular shape symbolizes completion because they have no beginning and no end. When they were adopted by Christianity, the wreaths became a symbol of hope for the coming of Christ.

Santa Claus

Santa Claus Figurine

Who could ever forget jolly old Santa Claus? However, Santa Claus was not always the jolly old man in a red suit that everybody now sees him as. In fact, Santa Claus, or Saint Nicholas, is the patron saint of children and sailors. He is described as a generous man known for giving gifts to children, especially those who are poor. He was also a 4th century bishop of Myra, an area that is now part of Turkey.

Kissing under the Mistletoe

Nothing says “kiss me” like dung on a stick

If you know where mistletoe comes from, you would probably not want to kiss under it. In truth, mistletoe comes from the Anglo Saxon words “mistel” and “tan” which means “dung” and “twig,” respectively, because people noticed that mistletoe grows on spots on twigs where bird droppings are found. But why would people kiss under “dung on a stick?” According to ancient Druid beliefs and myths, mistletoe came from the heavens and grew on a tree, like heaven’s gift to Earth. Kissing under the mistletoe is symbolic of accepting that gift from heaven. Scandinavians associated the plant with Frigga, the goddess of love, hence, they believed that kissing under the mistletoe would bring them happiness or Frigga’s blessings.
