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 got the unlit tree but you can also get it pre lit with LED lights or even tiny little fairy lights!
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!

I have a pair of these very realistic sparse Christmas trees in my dining room and love the way they look.
With trees this realistic, simple glass ornaments that look like champagne bubbles are all that’s needed. The key to getting a lush look is to string a lot of lights deep into the branches. Each one of these trees has 800 lights!
