I’m in love with my slim flocked Christmas tree! It doesn’t take up too much room and the red and white decor fits this tree perfectly.
I’ve had my slim flocked Christmas tree up and decorated since late-October. Don’t judge me – LOL! An online Christmas tree company gifted this tree for me to review and wanted it published in October. You can read all about my review of this Christmas tree.
I admit that it’s a little strange – my dining room is decorated for fall/Thanksgiving and the rest of the house is in full-on Christmas mode. Hey, it’s 2020, anything goes, right?
Since it rarely snows here in South Carolina, I just pretend my new Christmas tree is dusted with snow. Hey, it kinda works!

Slim Flocked Christmas Tree Surprise
When my grown kids came over for lunch last Sunday after church (it’s a weekly family tradition) they were surprised to find the inside of my house decked out for Christmas. And, all but one of them loved the flocked tree.
The first question out of my 30-something-year-old son’s mouth was, “Where is the regular tree?” I was expecting “gee, mom, nice tree.” I should have known. Some people just don’t like change, especially when it comes to the family Christmas tree.
Conversation Between My Son And Me
Me: “I’m not decorating the regular tree this year. Nearly Natural sent me this 7-1/2 foot slim tree – for free – to review. I love that it doesn’t take up much space. It’s a slim tree.”
Son: “So, you’re not going to put up the regular tree? Is this going to be the main tree?” (By regular tree, he means the big, wide, luxurious Christmas tree that Tree Classics sent me a couple of years ago. (Tree Classics now partners with Balsam Hill! You can read about that Christmas tree here.)
Me: “No, I’m not! I love that tree, but since I already have this one up and decorated, I’m just going with this one. I’m not going to take it down and put up another one in its place. (I also have another, smaller tree up and decorated).
Son: “So this is the Christmas tree.” (He likes the flocking. It’s the slim part that’s throwing him off)
Me: “Well, there’s more room for gifts around this tree.”
While I’m busy putting the finishing touches on lunch, I catch a glimpse of my sweet daughter-in-law giving my son the side-eye. I can tell her eyes are saying, “Just shut up about the tree.” He finally gives it a rest. He doesn’t like change.
My daughter-in-law: “It’s pretty. Does the flocking shed?” (Yes, she’s very nicely trying to change the subject.)
Me: “I’m actually surprised that the flocking stays on. There’s a tiny bit of shed but nothing like the flocked tree I had years ago. It was a nightmare.”
Me: (Also trying to change the subject) “Time to eat!”
Red and White Christmas Ornaments On Flocked Tree
I decided to go with a classic red and white themed tree this year. Most of the ornaments on the tree are mouth-blown glass ornaments. They, too, were a gift from Tree Classics before they started selling exclusively wholesale. They were very generous when they gifted me four large boxes of these beautiful glass ornaments.
I also hang stockings for every one of my grown children, their spouses, all the grandchildren, and Max, the dog. That’s 15 stockings! They are all personalized needlepoint stockings from Lillian Vernon.
I started this tradition when my oldest child was a toddler and I add a stocking each time the family grows. Thankfully, they still sell the stockings.
Inflation is real! When I first started the personalized stocking collection, they were $19.99 each. Now they are $44.99.
I place these personalized elves under the tree for the grandkids, even though the oldest grandson is now 16!
White Angel Topper
I kinda wanted to go with a snowflake (see the one I love down below) tree topper, but I do love this snow angel topper. This was actually a Christmas tabletop decor piece that plugged in, lit up, and changed colors. When it stopped working a couple of years ago I took it apart, removed the insides, and realized it makes the perfect tree topper.
