six alternative christmas tree ideas

It’s decided. There will be no tree up at our house this year.

It’s not so much getting everything out and put up, it’s putting it away that I don’t feel like dealing with this year. Especially when we’ll be out of town for the actual holiday and barely home over the next two weeks to even enjoy it. So this year, I’m searching for a festive tree that’s fun to put up and comes with a super fast tear down. So here are some fun Christmas tree alternatives to bring some festiveness to your house with a much simpler clean up plan.

Christmas Tree alternatives

Do you already have your tree up? Planning on doing it this weekend? Whatever I end up doing, I guess it’s on my to-do list for the next couple days before I run out of time!

Happy weekend! and happy, happy Friday.
