Guiding wisdom, joyful moments, and one-of-a-kind love define many of our experiences with our mothers. In honor of the women who have positively shaped our lives, Balsam Hill is holding A Lifetime of Love, a Mother’s Day blog tour that will run from May 1 to 5. Joining us for this special occasion are three of our blogger friends and our Brand Ambassador, Courtney of French Country Cottage.
Every family looks for that ideal holiday centerpiece to take home and decorate. Christmas trees come in many shapes and sizes, and there’s sure to be one that will match what you want.
The right choice often begins with knowing the correct tree shape for your home. The tree’s shape, which also called its profile, is the triangular outline of the tree that tells how narrow or wide it is. This is important when you consider how a narrow hallway or small room can get crowded when a full-bodied tree is placed in it. To avoid these less-than-perfect décor choices, we’ve put together a helpful guide on the different artificial Christmas tree shapes and where it’s best to place them.
As the Yuletide season drew to a close last year, Balsam Hill spread the Christmas spirit to another well-loved event. Last November 2, 2016, our majestic trees graced the stage of the much-anticipated, Country Music Awards.
The most wonderful time of the year is here, as Balsam Hill’s month-long Countdown to Christmas comes to a close. Thank you to all our friends who invited us into their homes and showcased gorgeous designs fit for the holidays. Let’s look back at the weekly themes that inspired our bloggers this season.
Week 1: Fireplace and Mantel
Kellie, Jennifer, and Cami, all did an outstanding job at decorating their fireplace and mantels with our Frosted Evergreen Foliage. They created cohesive and stylish displays with elegant, silver and light-colored accents for a delicate touch. For more information about the products they used, check out our Countdown to Christmas’ 1st week round-up. Read This Entry
At the homestretch of the countdown, we focused on how you can decorate your exteriors for the holidays. This week, two of our blogger friends did a wonderful job with making their outdoor spaces more inviting for their guests and loved ones.
A tree skirt is a piece of cloth underneath a decorated Christmas tree, which is often bright-colored, and sometimes embroidered with intricate designs. Its origin is closely tied to the tradition of bringing home an evergreen fir during holiday celebrations.
In the season where gift-giving is abundant, we know how sharing Christmas cheer brings a very special feeling to those who receive it. This year, Balsam Hill Australia reached out to six talented bloggers and sent them each a holiday piece. Read on to see how they decorated their homes and find out what they thought about their new pre-lit wreaths and trees.

Choosing the right pre-lit artificial Christmas tree can be overwhelming with all the lighting options currently available. The two basic light types are incandescent and LED. While both share the common purpose of adding a beautiful glow to your holiday display, there are several factors to consider before deciding which light option is best for you.
Every year, more and more families choose artificial Christmas trees over live ones to celebrate the holidays. Artificial trees offer a lot of advantages, such as minimizing fire hazards and eliminating the need to sweep fallen leaves and needles. For our customers who love the smell of real trees, we list down several ways of infusing the familiar scent of live evergreens into your Balsam Hill Christmas tree.
