I know most of you are prepping for Thanksgiving right about now, whether you are packing up your entire family for a glorious road trip or getting your house ready for those wonderful relatives you’re so looking forward to seeing….
One thing we all have in common right now is that Christmas is coming up and everyone needs a Christmas tree!
My whole adult life I’ve always had an artificial Christmas tree. As a small child we use to get a real pine tree but I soon found out that I was allergic to it so that tradition went out the window!
Don’t get me wrong, I still LOVE real trees! They smell amazing and look so beautiful when they are all decorated and done up with lights! Sometimes I dream about living in a place where you can go on one of those sleigh rides and cut down a real tree and bring it home to decorate. BUT, then I remember how EASY and ECONOMICAL it is to get a box down from the attic, put an artificial tree together and enjoy decorating it with family year after year after year!
Artificial trees can be just as beautiful if not better looking than real trees if you find the right one!
This year I have found the mack-daddy of ALL trees! The creme de la creme of artificial trees!
I’m telling you it’s THE most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen!!!!!!
I knew this year I wanted a flocked tree. I’ve been eyeing flocked trees for a while now and finally bit the bullet this year and did it.
If you follow me on Instagram and watch my stories, you know that my son and I pretty much stalked the FedEx guy for 2 straight days in anticipation of this tree arriving. We were counting down the minutes until we could take it out of the box!
Speaking of THE BOX…
The tree arrived on my front porch packed very nicely in this tall box. After bringing it inside I quickly realized that the box was designed to be reused every year because of the nifty handles built into it! But that’s not even the best part….
The best part is it can fit through the attic door!!!!!!! Whoever designed this box was a logistical genius! (probably a woman) Do you even know how many holes I have put in our old Christmas tree bag (which I had to purchase separately BY THE WAY!) trying to wedge it through the attic door?!? Seriously what a nightmare! This is amazing and life changing! Thank you King of Christmas for thinking ahead so I don’t have to!
Ok so now on to PUTTING THE TREE TOGETHER…
It came in 4 sections, labeled with tags “Section 1” – 4 and included a stand.
The stand was a synch to open and secure. Seriously, nothing to it! Then I began stacking the sections in order by following the pre-labled tags and the tree was put together within 10 minutes, all by myself!
My most favorite part about this entire tree is the power pole! It comes with ONE PLUG. That’s it! One plug that plugs into the wall and lights up the whole tree!!! Everything else plugs together through the power pole built into the stem. The fact that I don’t have to untangle wires, figure out which plug connects to which plug, and chase down the light that is burning out the whole string makes me want to scream with excitement like a 16 year old girl at a Michael Jackson concert. GENIUS again, I know.
Now lets talk about THE BRANCHES…
They are full and sturdy and well made! The snow is stuck on tight to each branch and they fan out nicely, covering most holes. I say “most” because there are some areas throughout that are thinner than others. Personally, I like those thin areas in various places because it leaves room for bigger ornaments to hang. If you like a more full tree, you would probably prefer one of the “King” trees. This is the King Flocked Tree. It’s similar to the tree I have, just a little more full. You can read about the difference between the Prince and The King by clicking here.
Here are a few more closeups of the branches…
Now lets talk about THE LIGHTS…
I have never owned a tree with LED lights. I was very nervous to take the plunge with LED because I was worried they were going to look too green. I can now say that I am a big LED Christmas light fan! I love the way they look and the flocking offers a nice warm glow over them…
Another great thing about these lights it that when one burns out, the others stay lit!!!!!!!! Another genius move by King of Christmas.
So basically I’m a crazed King of Christmas tree fan now and I just can’t imagine ever owning another brand of artificial Christmas tree for the rest of my life.
They also offer other products like wreaths & garlands . I desperately need to replace the garland on my mantel so I’m thinking next year for sure! I’m also toying with the idea of getting another one of their smaller trees for my son’s room. His head would explode if he got his very own King of Christmas tree in his room!
Well that’s my review of my new King of Christmas Tree. Basically I could not imagine ever owning a better tree! If you are in the market for a new Christmas Tree, you should definitely check out
Can’t wait to show you the tree all decorated for Christmas next week during my Joyful Holiday Home Tour!
