soldier saluting

 

Our soldiers have one of the hardest jobs of all—keeping our country safe at all times. Because of their many sacrifices, we at Christmas Tree Market want to show our gratitude to these brave soldiers by helping their families celebrate this holiday season.

Through our Celebrating Those Who Serve campaign, we are inviting military families to send us stories about their family member’s experience while in service, and why they are proud to be part of the Armed Forces.

We have received many thoughtful responses from all over the US.  A big thank you to the relatives who sent us their touching testimonies! In turn, we would like to share some of their inspiring stories with you.

Fall is beautiful, bountiful, and offers easy, inexpensive ways to dress up your dining table with seasonal centerpieces. Apart from using the usual suspects to decorate your table, like fall foliage and pumpkins, consider adorning your table with an expansive range of items that are especially reminiscent of autumn, like apples, corn and wheat. Here are some inspirations to get you started!

Fall Fruits

Fruits are not only delicious, but are also a no-fail source of inspiration for fall centerpieces. Celebrate the rich colors of fall with a few pears or apples by grouping them together in a bowl or placing a couple along the length of a table runner. You can also pair them with greenery, flowers, or artichokes. A shabby-chic fruit arrangement in an old vase is another fall-friendly centerpiece idea. For something a bit different, you can decorate the fruits using adhesive decals in gold, silver, and bronze tones in various patterns.

Trees in Review- Shimmering White 3
 
Customers choose colorful trees to bring contemporary appeal to their homes. For this month’s Trees in Review, we have the Shimmering White Christmas tree—a stunning, dense tree perfect for a Winter Wonderland holiday.

Amazing Color and Lights

Its pristine color makes the Shimmering White tree a great backdrop for ornaments, garlands, and tree toppers of all shapes and colors. Choose any theme or color combination you want or keep it undecorated—both options result in a beautiful tree for the holidays.

Additional Glimmer

This tree also comes in a pre-lit variety that brings the perfect glimmer to your white tree as the needles reflect the lights. The overall effect makes the tree look more sparkling and iridescent.

Full Shape and Sturdy Construction

The tree’s full shape gives it a traditional feel. Sturdy branches and needles are specifically designed to carry your family heirlooms for years.

Convenient Setup

Convenience is among the best features of our trees. Setup is easy with three sections of hinged branches that can be connected with little effort. In addition, the branches require minimal fluffing to achieve a full look.

Complete a white Christmas with the Shimmering White tree. For our other tree treasures, check out our Emerald Fir, Balsam Spruce, and Kennedy Fir trees.
