Our New Christmas Tree: {Sponsored by King of Christmas}

Happy Monday to you!  I know it sounds so cliché, but I cannot believe it is Thanksgiving week! I was going to hold off on decorating but we decided to re-organize the attic (after some attic visitors were taken care of) so instead of putting everything back in it after we cleaned it out, I started bringing things downstairs.

This year I ended up getting a new tree.  Long story short, we've had a little pest problem (gross, barf, gag)  in our attic for the past few weeks and I wasn't sure if my old tree that was in the attic had been messed with.  Gotta love living in front of a huge open field full of critters!  About the time the pest guy told me the critters could have gotten into anything that was in a cardboard box, which is where my tree was, King of Christmas contacted me asking if I would like to review one of their products!  Perfect timing!  Good news, we checked yesterday and everything in the attic was untouched so we may just have 3 trees up this year!

I was very  impressed with the selection King of Christmas offers and ended up going with this tree: 8 foot Prince Flocked Pre-Lit Tree

It arrived very quickly and was really easy to get set up.  Honestly, the flocking does cause a little mess as you are putting it up, but it is so much easier to vacuum up then pine needles!  I find that the flocking keeps the needles from coming off. 

The first thing I noticed is how full the tree is.  In the past, I have used burlap and ribbon to create a full look but that isn't necessary with this tree.

A lot of times the photos online look better than the real deal, but that was not the case with this tree.  It exceeded all my expectations! Last night, I started "fluffing" the branches and couldn't help but to add few ornaments.  I also started decorating the top so here is the "during" photo...can't wait to share the "after" photo!

If you are in the market for a new tree, I highly recommend King of Christmas!  You can check out all their trees HERE and take advantage of the great sale they have going on right now!  If you order one, I would love to know which one you go with!  I know you will love it!


  1. I just looked at the website ! The sale is amazing. We have decided after 20+ years of having a real tree we are going for an artificial tree this year. I'm loving this tree, I've been on the fence about the flocked tree, but I think I love it !!!!

    1. I switched to a flocked tree a few years ago and I don't think I will ever go back to non-flocked. There is just something so whimsical about the flocked trees!
