I Can’t Believe it’s Not Real – Realistic Christmas Tree Options

I’ve discovered the golden unicorns of fake Christmas trees! I’m sharing the most realistic Christmas tree choices so you can have a tree that looks like it was freshly cut from the forest. Sparse Christmas trees have lots of spaces between branches which gives them a much more realistic look. They also leave plenty of room for showing off favorite ornaments. If you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect tree, look no further.

After a lot of fluffing and finessing, I stepped back to admire the tree and could not believe how real it looks!

I was so deliriously happy that I didn’t even have time to clip off the little tags before I took pics.

Imagine how amazing this is going to look once I add lights!

  1. I’ve been eying these gorgeous trees, too. Just wish they were more affordable. Do you know if they’ll be having a Black Friday sale?

  2. I purchased two of these European Fir trees this year, plus a Noble Fir from Balsam Hill! I love the quality of their trees! I’m looking forward to see yours all trimmed for Christmas!
