Gainesville Moms

A place for moms to connect

A few years back, we bought a beautiful artificial Christmas tree that we love putting up each year. It doesn't lose any needles and the branches are actually strong enough to hold most of our heavier ornaments, but we miss the smell of a real tree. We even walked the tent outside Lowe's just to get a "whiff" of the real trees for sale.

Do you put up a real or fake tree in your house? If you put up a real tree, do you buy from a tent or cut down your own from a tree farm? If you have a fake tree, do you use any of the sprays, pine cones, etc. to mimic the real tree smell?

Fake for sure, no mess and it's just easier

We have had a fake tree for a while now. I do want to get a real one next year. I like the look of the real tree.
