Decorating the Christmas tree is yearly tradition for many families, but many of us are moving away from the tradition of placing a live tree in your home. Whether you are allergic to real pine trees, or just ready for a more environmentally friendly way to decorate your home, lets deck the halls, Deco & Bloom style, with fun alternatives to a traditional Christmas tree.

Made from birch plywood with hand picked sections of vintage comics, this tree is sure to add an eye catching pop to your Christmas decorations this year. Best of all, the tree folds flat for easy storage year round.
The Traditional Faux Tree: Whether you are allergic to pine, hate getting stabbed by all those needles, or just don’t want to go through the hassle of disposing of the tree after the holidays are over a faux tree can simplify your Christmas. This BH Balsam Fir looks quite realistic, and is pre-lit, saving time during these hectic months.
Now Boarding: If you are looking for an alternative that is eco-friendly, this Christmas Tree from Bottega Di Cartone is a great option. Crafted from all recycled materials, laser cut by hand, these pieces are each custom crafted for a unique look, and are made for easy storage and quick assembly.
Let it grow, Let it grow, Let it grow: In recent years several companies have begun offering services that allow you to rent a tree, rather than buy a disposable one. The Living Christmas Company for instance will deliver the tree directly to your front door, root bulb and all. You keep the tree watered and trimmed while it stays with you, and when the holidays have come to an end the company comes back, retrieves the tree and replants it. You can even get the same tree from year to year, so you can watch it grow along with your family.
Diy or Buy: These Bare Branch White Metal Holiday Trees made from scrap metal are a great way to build your own Christmas tree. The bare-bones design will allow you to decide just how you would like your tree to look. Building your own tree can make for a fantastic new holiday tradition.
