5 Christmas tree tips: From buying to decorating
1. Find the right Christmas tree
The snow falls softly - but the pine needles do not! That's why we prefer Nordmann firs to spruces. These keep their needle coating significantly longer and do not pierce the skin - that makes decorating much more pleasant, doesn't it? A small tip: Freshly felled trees with FSC or Demeter certification are especially recommended, as they not only last longer but also come from sustainable tree cultures - completely without mineral fertilisers or pesticides.
2. Transporting the Christmas tree
When picking up the Christmas tree, we wrap it in a separator trawl to protect its branches. Luckily, this service is included for most traders. Once at home, we cut the trawl from the bottom up - so the branches are not in the way, or kinked.
3. Set up the Christmas tree
A Christmas tree stand equipped with a cable and water tank has two significant advantages: Firstly, we save our strength, which we will need later on for gift shopping. Secondly, it stays fresh so much longer. For larger specimens: Do not forget to refill.
4. The perfect place of the Christmas tree
We avoid proximity to heating, fireplace or direct sunlight - heat causes the Christmas tree to dry out and lose its needle coating. In addition, it should have enough space so that its shape and branches are not crushed and it can unfold its full splendour. This also applies to the height: If the tree is too big, we carefully take off a part of its tip.
5. Strategic tree decoration
Big or small, we give our Christmas tree a day to stand before decorating it, so that it will be in perfect shape on Christmas Eve. The fairy lights make up the first layer, allowing us to conceal their cables craftily. We then start with bigger balls at the bottom and continue upwards with smaller ones. Decoration highlight: A shining star at the treetop.

DIY Christmas decoration
Every year it’s the same: hardly any other occasion encourages decorating as much as Christmas. We'll tell you here how you can conjure up various decorative elements for the festival of love easily and individually. And best of all: we can directly build parts of our Christmas tree into this - we even decorate it sustainably!
from dewy fir branches
We often cut off a section of the treetop, or branches that are too long around the bottom part of the fir.
These are ideal for decorating: Whether they're between candlesticks, as a bound wreath with lights and dried fruit, in a vase with tree decorations, or loose on the windowsill: Everything can be used.
made of wood with a rustic charm
Another Christmas decoration idea is the use of tree discs - for example, those that can be sawed off the remaining tree stump after felling the Christmas tree. When dry, they are used in all sizes as decorative coasters, decorative candlesticks, or stacked in a contemporary shabby chic-style pedestal for plants, gifts, or lamps. Versatile and without the need for classic craftsmanship, we can create things with sustainable natural products. It doesn't get more unique than this!
