The 2023 decorating season is in full swing. Have you finished decking the halls of your holiday home? How far along are you in this joyful annual process?
Picture this scenario: all the storage boxes have been retrieved from the attic, the basement, the garage, and that one convenient spot in the back of a closet. The ornaments, Christmas lights, garland, wreaths, centerpieces, and Nativity sets have all been unpacked, organized and staged for decorating. The “star” of the season – your Christmas tree – is in the center of the room, its beauty beaming like the Northern Lights, and then you look around and think… is there something missing?
That extra touch of holiday merriment that’s going to make your home really stand out this season?
A companion (or companions) to your current decorating lineup for your family and guests to enjoy?
Might we suggest a tabletop Christmas tree? Tabletop trees pack a whole lot of festive punch in a compact size so they can be an easy substitute for a full-length tree when you are working with a smaller space, or a perfect complement to your regular artificial tree or live tree. So many different tabletop tree flavors are available at The Bradford Exchange, from traditional, nostalgic and modern, to whimsical, rustic and entertaining. With such a wide selection, you are sure to find one (or two) to be an ideal match for your home and holiday decor.
