Finding the right Christmas tree skirts on sale is like hitting the jackpot in seasonal décor. One of the most important finishing touches to any tree is the adornment nestled around its base. There are so many to choose from that finding the right one can seem to be a bit daunting. So what are some things to look for when in search of the perfect ornamentation?
Look for Christmas tree skirts that are on sale that complement the height of the tree. There are so many different heights available, and even children sometimes have a miniature spruce or fir in their room. There are some skirts that are specifically for mini table tops that range in diameter up to around 20 inches. The larger counterparts can range in diameter up to 56 inches. They come with a slit down the middle to help lay nicely around the base.
Christmas tree skirts vary widely in their appearance as well. Some are ornate with beautiful poinsettias and rich velvet bordering the edges. Others are more whimsical, including some that look just like Santa’s hat, with red velvet and a plush white border that sparkles under the lights. For those that prefer a more handmade look, there are quilted skirts with a variety of patterns, from snowmen to trains, and much more.
To help narrow down the search, consider the overall theme of the decorations. Some people have a color theme, others prefer their favorite team with a sports theme, and other prefer a certain era in time. Other people choose to decorate with ornaments from their childhood, family heirlooms, and ornaments that their children made in elementary school. Whatever the theme, or lack thereof, may be, it should be considered when choosing the skirt to sit below the tree. Gratefully, with the vast array available, there is sure to be one that fits any décor, whether sheer, shimmery gold or silver fabric to wrap the base with elegance, or a colorful, cheery skirt featuring Santa and his reindeer.
Some people may say there is no need for such an adornment, but those that have experience with live trees, especially, will say otherwise. Having material around the base can save the flooring underneath it if there is a spill during watering. It can also help collect the needles that fall during the season, making clean up that much easier. It can also help catch any sap that oozes from the limbs. So whether it is a live or artificial Christmas tree, the right skirt is the perfect addition to complete the decoration.
