Which Balsam Hill tree did you decorate and what feature did you like most about it?

I couldn’t be happier with what we decided to buy from Balsam Hill’s selection. I decorated a 10-foot pre-lit BH Fraser Fir and had so much fun with it. Its realism, vibrant green foliage, and color sheen are the features I most like!

What ornaments did you use? Did you have any particular favorites?

I use an assortment of ornaments (thousands of them!) bought from different places and picked from travels. My favorites are my birds & butterflies ornaments, and the whimsical musical instruments.

Where do you get your decorating inspiration from?

I wanted a Christmas tree that’s a little whimsical and modern but still traditional, without using the red and green colors and ribbons that we almost always see in Christmas trees. Inspiration came from the bird & butterfly ornaments, and sparkly twigs and branches (It took numerous trips to the arts and crafts store for those!).

Do you have special techniques when decorating a tree?

Nope. All I needed was a lot of enthusiasm and a million ornaments!

How would you describe your finished look?

A really beautiful & whimsical tree that everyone who came to my house gushed over and admired. Of course I told them my tree is a Balsam Hill!
