Even if you are a decorate-after-Thanksgiving type, now is the perfect time to get your Christmas tree plan in place. Today we’ve got four great flocked trees to share with you in all price ranges.

 

 

Our primary tree used to be a fresh tree that we would get from a local lot, but in recent years we’ve made the switch to the gorgeous flocked, snow covered looking trees, I just think they look so pretty when all decorated.

 

 

In addition to our fresh (real) tree, I also had a second (very inexpensive) tree that I used as a kids’ tree in their playroom when they were little, then later I put it in our front dining room window because I thought  it looked beautiful all lit up from the outside.

Then, a few years ago I decided I really loved the look of a flocked tree and looked everywhere for the best value (in other words, the cheapest I could find!) that still looked lovely. I settled on this one (it is shown in the first picture at the top of this post) and we liked it so much we stopped getting a regular, fresh tree and have decorated it as our main family room tree for the last few years.

All that being said, today I wanted to round up the four trees that Christy and I have in our homes. All four are flocked, and they literally go from super inexpensive (above) to truly being an investment tree (below). I tried to describe my opinions of each tree as honestly as I could, I hope this helps if you are tree shopping this year.

AFFORDABLE FLOCKED TREE #1 ($35)

At this time of year there are enough expenses, it can be hard to justify buying a pricey tree on top of all the gifts, travel and such. Christy and I both ordered this $35 tree, at almost 6 feet tall it’s a complete steal –and it even ships free! I think this tree looks great, you would never know it came at such an affordable price point. For apartment dwellers, small spaces, or a secondary tree you simply can not beat this one for the price.  You’ll see it again soon in my daughter’s room too.

AFFORDABLE FLOCKED TREE #2 ($229)

 

This Flocked Tree was my original flocked tree, I mentioed it previously, we purchased it three years ago now. I still consider this one to be my best investment. It is a lighted, 7. 5′ tree and currently is $250 shipped. I see it frequently on other bloggers’ sites now and while I will warn you it does drop the flocking when you set it up, other than that it has been a great tree.  I think its really beautiful, the flocking isn’t over done like some trees. It has held up great during our moves and over time.

AFFORDABLE FLOCKED TREE #3 ($289)

 

 

I am being a little sneaky and showing you this next tree undecorated (you’ll see it all dolled up on December 2nd, when my holiday home tour launches).  I wanted to show you this new tree we just got. In our new home, we have 9′ ceilings on our first floor so I wanted to make sure I had a good quality flocked tree in our family room as our primary tree, and wanted one that filled the vertical space. I ordered the 9 foot, Prince Flocked Unlit Tree (unlit to save money, but I kind of regret that now as I need to get more lights before I can finish decorating it. FYI–rule of thumb is a strand of lights per foot of tree. I read that somewhere!). The lit version is available here. 

 

 

I decided to give this popular tree brand a try (this is not sponsored, this was purchased by me) as I see these trees all over Instagram. The tree arrived quickly and was easy to set up. It is very dense, and only dropped minimal flocking during set up so all in all, I think this is a great tree for the price, and seems to be good quality. The only thing I’d say is this tree has a certain look, which seems to be this brand’s signature style, of very clustered, thick snowy, dense branches. I’ll have to finish decorating it to see how it stacks up against the tree above, but I think once it is all decorated it will look fantastic 🙂

 

 

Finally, let’s talk about a gorgeous investment tree. As you all know, Christy and I recently returned from the Biltmore Estate where we worked with the Balsam Hill brand to decorate trees. Everything Balsam Hill does is first class, after working with their trees on that trip I can attest to their quality and that they have the most beautiful holiday decor too.

You saw this beautiful blue themed tree last year in Christy’s holiday home tour. This tree is stunning, it is the 9′ Lit Frosted Sugar Pine (it even has a pretty name!). Setting up a tree like this takes no time and it will certainly last you for many years.  You can see all the trees this brand offers HERE, and they are running a sale this week if you act quickly.

  1. My artificial tree is a mountain king tree that my parents bought the day after Christmas back in 1976. It was an investment for them and it still looks great after all these years. If you figure what you would spend for a real tree for that many years, it’s more than paid for itself. Great post, you have something for every budget.

  2. Is tree number two elevated on something? It’s looks so tall in the pics! Taller than 7.5 ft

    Thanks!
