As the holidays conclude, so too does Balsam Hill’s Showroom Sale. As a token of gratitude to all who participated, we would like to look back at what took place last December during the special event dedicated to our Bay Area blogger friends. The night was definitely a night for the holiday-decorating enthusiast, with décor giveaways, a wreath decorating contest, and of course, great wine and good food.
I recently bought a white Christmas tree for our home. Can you give me advice on how I can better care for it so I can keep it looking pristine?
To keep your white Christmas tree clean and pristine, I suggest you store it as soon as the holidays end. This will reduce the amount of dust it can accumulate. However, before you do that, you must first clean the tree and its tips with a feather duster or a bottlebrush. You can use the vacuum to get some dust off, but use it carefully and with caution. Wrap it up in paper then keep it in the Christmas tree storage bag it came in. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions if there are any.
