There is nothing wrong with traditions – the smell of pine, the richness of green and red, the purity of white and the shine of silver or gold. However, alternative Christmas tree ideas allow you to create the same joyful and cheerful Christmas mood and atmosphere in your home, but in a different way.

All of us start preparing for the festive days long before the holiday. We decorate our homes, buy gifts and look for recipes for delicious meals. But the real sense of magic and anticipation of something bright and unusual appears only after the ceremonial installation of the Christmas tree. Modern interior design requires a creative approach to Christmas holidays.

Such a man-made miracle will be no worse than a real Christmas tree, but at the same time it will not leave behind crumbling needles and will help preserve the flora.
