Trim a Christmas Tree for Breast Cancer Awareness

We’ve always had an artificial tree for as long as I can remember. I prefer to leave the real trees outside for the animals and birds to enjoy. With an artificial tree, there is no need to water it or sweep up pine needles from the floor. For me, it’s just an easier choice than a real tree. So, when I was considering a Christmas tree for Breast Cancer Awareness, I knew it would be artificial.

What should I look for in a tree?

After visiting the Tree Classics site, I learned that their trees use Real Feel™ technology that results in foliage that feels as real as it looks. Made from injection-molded polyethylene (PE) plastic, Real Feel™ needles allow you to enjoy all of the advantages of an artificial Christmas tree without sacrificing the beauty of a real one. Their trees are designed with a mix of Real Feel™ foliage and traditional papery PVC needles for optimal realism and fullness.

After looking at several different styles, we chose a pre-lit Christmas tree, so we didn’t have the hassle of dealing with strings of lights individually. We decided to get a Kennedy Fir Slim Artificial Christmas Tree because it was compact enough to fit in the area we had available. If you have a larger area, you can choose from their full Christmas trees as well. You can also decide to have a tree with no lights if you prefer.

If you want to create a Breast Cancer awareness Christmas tree, you’ll probably want to use a variety of pink Christmas ornaments and decorations. If you don’t have a pre-lit Christmas tree, you can always use pink lights or you can add pink lights to the existing lights on your tree.

There are also lots of different pink ornaments for your Christmas tree. These are shatterproof which is important if you have young children or pets. You can also add pink silk poinsettias to your tree. Or, you might prefer to use these glittery pink bows instead. These adorable pink unicorn ornaments would add a fun touch as well.

 

Pink Christmas tree

Some people want to get an entirely pink Christmas tree for Breast Cancer Awareness and that’s a great idea. We decided to go with green in case we wanted a different theme next year. If you do want a pink Christmas tree, I found a few that you can choose from.

  9. I learned that Tree Classics has a beautiful array of Christmas trees for every budget and every taste. I like that you can also find a tree to fit any size room. So many people don't the room for a full tree but don't want a tabletop tree either. I also found that they sell gorgeous wreaths and garlands to decorate your mantle and door. Best of all I know this is a company that's not a fly-by-night business. They have been around for 40 years and that -tells me they are a business that can be trusted. I love that they have a 5 yr foliage warranty and long-lasting worry-free lights. Thank you for the chance to win a gift certificate so I can shop for my very own special Tree Classics Christmas Tree.

  15. I learned that there are trees that feel more like real trees and there are flat backed trees. That is so cool because we dont have alot of space in our living room. I will still have to look up some stuff on google though because my cats chew on the trees we get and last i looked all fake trees are unsafe for them to chew on. Which sucks because those flat backed trees would be awesome, plus fake trees are easier to put on in the stand. At least the giftcard would buy some beatutiful ornaments if i need to get a real tree for my kitties health :) great giveaway

  16. What a treat to learn about these trees since I had not seen them before. I learned they have an up-to-date blog and newsletter I can subscribe to and learn about them. So many don't bother to update their site info, so I appreciate it. We had the same silver metallic artificial tree for most of the 60s, lol. Those color wheels were popular then and I loved to watch it change colors. I don't have a tree now and like you, hate cutting down the real ones!
