The festive season is fast approaching upon us and with only 5 weeks till Christmas arrives and the man in the red suit comes and delivers your presents, it’s all very exciting but not to mention expensive.I have always had a really Christmas tree when I was living at home but since moving out we haven’t been able to have one which makes me sad, because our living room isn’t big enough and also because I worry about the needles that they will hurt our dog’s paws.
When Bloom & Wild got in touch as asked if I wanted to review one of their mini letter box Christmas trees I quickly said yes with Christmas fast approaching.
They hadn’t come into stock when they first contacted me so I had to wait a few weeks for it, a short time after I received an email to say my delivery was on it’s way to me and I could wait to see what it was like.
The great thing about this company is their parcels fit through most letter boxes which are amazing, because if you are not at home they can just post it through your door, no trips to the post office, no knocking on neighbours doors or having to rearrange deliveries.
The Christmas tree came delivered in a lovely box all wrapped and very well presented.
They also put a little note in the box too with instructions. I love little touches like that.
I carefully peeled the wrapping back and looked inside and the overpowering smell of pine and really fresh Christmas trees just hit you. I love that smell.
A day later when I had a bit of peace and quiet one evening I started to set my tree up, I carefully took it out the box, untied the ribbon and set it gently into the little box it came with. I did as the instructions told me and gently spread the branches out and lastly put the moss around the base of the tree and gave it a little drink of water and now it was ready for some decorations.
I left it for a few days to settle and to allow the branches to drop then decorated.
We then decorated our Christmas tree with mini baubles, sadly we didn’t have any mini lights to put on it or a small enough star to put on it either.
Our mini tree is still going strong after well over a month of receiving it, so they are certainly a must buy for me for next year. The smell of the tree is still strong and remind me of Christmas every day and has to be one of my favourite smells of all times.
