My Balsam Hill Home: Welcoming the Harvest Season

Share Button

Autumn is a wonderful prelude to everyone’s favorite holiday season, what with its wonderful splash of color and somewhat somber atmosphere providing a melancholic contrast from the festive mood of Christmas. Along with its palette, the fall brings with it its own décor style and theme. Bright orange hues, dark reds, and muted earthy tones are the highlights of the season, and the décor ideas presented here take these style considerations to heart.

As a warm welcome to autumn and the coming holiday season, this post shows how you can welcome your guests by using the colors of the harvest season on your porch. It’s amazing how some small accents can make the biggest difference. The following ideas show how they can be maximized for the best effect.

Decorate with the Splendor of Autumn

Autumn is also the harvest season for many, and this ensemble of autumn leaves, red berries, and orange and red pumpkins is the perfect symbol of a bountiful crop. Decorate your front door with the Autumn Leaves Decorated Foliage from our very own Orchard Harvest Collection. Displaying the wreath on your front door will add vibrant color to your entryways. The garland, on the other hand, will wonderfully tie everything together, creating a showcase that completely captures the bounty of the season. Read This Entry

Setup in Minutes to Achieve Easy Elegance

For people who prefer lighted Christmas displays, one of the main challenges they encounter is setting up the wires properly. While many other pre-lit holiday trees offer easy-to-follow Christmas lights systems, Balsam Hill takes the concept further by providing a pioneering way that fuses consumer-friendly features with first class brilliance.

Aptly called the Easy Plug™, our technology lets consumers set up their yuletide trees without worrying about cumbersome wires. The secret lies in its system of having the electrical connections expertly concealed within the tree base. Each tier is comprised of elaborate lighting powered up through plugs inside the poles.

Christmas in July: Have You Checked Your Tree Lately?

It’s Christmas and the southern hemisphere is rejoicing. While our friends south of the equator are busy fluffing their Christmas trees in July, it’s time you asked yourself a crucial question: have you checked your own tree lately? The Balsam Hill blog gives you a handy checklist to make sure your tree is in tip-top shape for December.

Hello Tree, We Meet Again!

Before taking out your tree from storage, it’s important to determine a good spot where you can clean it. Choose to work in a controlled environment indoors to prevent any possible damage from the summer heat, wind, or unexpected rain. Also, consider the safety of children and pets. They might become fascinated with the colors of your ornaments and believe they are edible.

Lay down a large sheet of paper or cloth on the floor for catching dust and debris. This simple step allows for an easy clean up afterwards. Begin taking out the tree by gently lifting the parts out of the bag or box. Then place each section in a designated spot.
