This holiday season my family needed a new Christmas tree. Our old one was missing too many needles and only half the lights actually worked. I wanted a real tree but having one around with a 2 year old and pets it was quite risky, others felt it was too much of a fire hazard. I began looking at the Brylane Home website and was delightfully surprised to see a nice selection of Christmas Trees. I have plenty of personal tree decorations, but a pre-lit tree seemed easier. I selected the 7.5 foot slim tree and soon it arrived in a slender box on the doorstep. I thought they had sent the wrong tree at first because the box was SO light. At 9 months pregnant I am grateful for this.
Upon opening the box I pulled out the pieces. It looked easy enough to put together. I put the feet on the base, the 3 layers stacked right on top of each other and stood it up. The ceiling in the living room is 8ft so I had just enough room for a tree topper.
Connecting the light plugs was very simple to do, however, I do wish the cord coming from the tree was a little longer as I had to dig up an extension cord just to get it to the nearest outlet. I plugged in the tree and stood back to admire. I am not very good at “fluffing” the individual branches so I did my best and then watched my husband come around to perfect them.
B loves the tree and the “pretty lights” and he was so happy to help put on our decorations. It’s funny how a few decorations I gave him ended up on the same branch, but it was cute!
I was a little baffled at first how high the bottom branches were from the floor but come Christmas Eve I quickly had a better understanding. Our gifts piled up nicely underneath and we didn’t have to take up too much floor space because of that.
I would recommend this tree if you are looking for an elegant faux tree for the holidays that is extremely light weight, easy to assemble, and slim.
