I purchased this tree to be the centerpiece of my Christmas party buffet table. It was fresh right out of the box and looked beautiful and smelled so good! It had just the right amount of berry picks and pinecones and I added a few red ribbons. I will definitely order it again next year.
The item was delivered on time and was exactly as pictured. It was fresh and of excellent quality. The item was not a tree, but rather had a strong heavy duty infrastructure with florist's sponge inside. The branches, cones and berry decorations were inserted into the florist's sponge. My mom was a litlle disappointed in that these branches were not suitable for adding heavy ornaments. But there was still opportunity for decorating. We liked that the lights were regular lights that required plug in and were not some battery operated system. Upon recepit there are instructions for watering. We followed the instrucitons closely. The great advantage is that the branches stay fresh substantially longer than they would have on a cut tree. We celebrate for a week after New Years. I can tell you that the branches are still green, needles haveln't dropped and the balsam aroma still permeates the house. We received many compliments and would order again.
Bought one for both of my elderly parents that don't bother to decorate for the holidays....one in an apartment and one in an assisted living.....They both called me immediately to thank me....they ranted and raved about how fresh, fragrant and already decorated and lit the tree was!. It has been 4 weeks since I sent them and the trees are still fresh. I look forward to buying these again next year!
This is a perfect alternative to a large Christmas tree. Very pretty and fitted perfectly on my end table. I put a large saucer under it in case of drips, but there was no need to. Well worth the money and much easier clean up than the large tree. Remember to water it!
This was a nice decoration at Christmas, and actually lasted quite a while. It's really more of a floral arrangement - a center foam with branches and decorations "stuck in". The lights were a nice touch - short cord tho. We got lots of compliments on the piece.
It has a very fragrant smell and the lights remained lite during its use. After removed from the box aside from the needles left in the box, the little tree didn't loose any more needles. It was used for several weeks and no needles fell and the fragrance of the tree remained even though it rained on it several times.
We've always had a full sized Christmas tree but since we got a puppy this year, decided that we needed a tabletop tree instead. This tree was absolutely perfect. It came with lights, pine cones and a big red bow. I invited the grandkids over to decorate with tiny little antique ornaments. Will most likely be buying this again next year.
very unhappy when just found out wasn't a tree at all. Branches had not fallen so though lights were holding them up. turns out the whole thing was just branches stuck into an oasis. ordered one last year and it was an actual tree and very nice. Won't chance ordering this again.
We've been purchasing fresh cut table-top trees for years. I usually take the tree to my office for display but this year it never made it there as I don't spend a lot of time in my work office. Instead the tree stayed in my kitchen. It arrived quickly and well packed as usual. We took it out of the box, arranged some of the decorations and plugged it in. It was beautiful. About a week after the tree arrived the color started to fade much more quickly than I remember. It now sits a faded green/brown. I'm hoping that I just received a bad tree this year as I don't remember this happening in the years past.
