I put my Mt. Balsa tree up a few days ago and the best way I can tell you about it is to share a story from this morning..
I found a box of my children's old handmade ornaments and went to put them on the tree. As I was placing the first ornament on the tree, I thought to myself - "Oh good...the tree needles are still nice and soft." It took me a second to remember that this tree was artificial! :-) Oops!
This is hands down the most "real looking" artificial tree I've ever own or seen. It was a breeze to set up....literally took a few minutes. The lights are all nicely woven in and out of the branches, too. It's worth a little extra time to "fluff out" the branches to give them a more natural look.
My college son just came home last night and the first thing he said when he saw the tree was, "That's the best tree we've ever had, Dad." Need I say more?
(I also bought a tree skirt, ornaments, and 4 stockings.... everything is absolutely spectacular.).
Beautiful tree, very full. The 2 shades of green make it look more realistic. I had compliments from all who saw it. The only suggestion I have is that the directions explain better which cords get plugged into which. But the company was very good about talking to me about it so no problem. All in all I'm very happy with my purchase.
I bought this on a whim and was so pleased with the quality, really nice tree skirt.
I have been using one tree skirt for the last 20 years, but decided to buy this beautiful plaid skirt from Gigi. I am thrilled with how it looks and feels. It is so fun to actually change things up in my Christmas decor. I am excited to buy more from this company.
The most gorgeous and well made tree skirt I have ever had. The size is fabulous, I have never seen one this big. The designs were amazing!
This tree skirt is stunning. I intentionally chose the denim/faux fur style because I wanted a skirt that looked good by itself (with older kids, their preference is fewer - but more expensive gifts. Ha!). If you are considering this product, take a minute to look at the photos using the enlarger/magnifying glass. The denim is nice and heavy. The faux fur looks great. But I'd have to say that the striped piping around the edges is my favorite! (It reminds me of my mother sewing piping around the edges of table cloths!). I could not be more happy. I was so pleased with this purchase (my first with Gigi Seasons) that I bought a Mt. Balsa tree, 4 stockings and ornaments. I'll post about those once they arrive!
This tree skirt is stunning. I intentionally chose the denim/faux fur style because I wanted a skirt that had eye-appeal even with just a few gifts under the tree (my kids are older so they would rather have fewer yet more expensive gifts - ha!). If you're considering this product, take a minute to look at the photos with the "enlarging magnifier." Everything about this skirt screams of a handmade (and way more expensive) piece. The denim is nice and heavy. The faux fur looks great. But I'd have to say that the striped piping around the perimeter is one of my favorite touches. (It reminds me of my mother carefully sewing piping into the edges of tablecloths!). Couldn't be happier. I was so pleased with this product (my first Gigi Season's purchase) that I just ordered a Mt. Balsa tree, 4 stockings and a box of ornaments. I'll post about those when they arrive.
I was looking to switch things up this year and go with glitter and glitz and found exactly what I was looking for. The ornaments are beautiful and exactly as pictured. The box they come in is very sturdy and able to be used to store the decorations away for next year. Loving my collection. Highly recommend this site. 5 stars from me!
OK, I admit....I bought a box of ornaments (100) simply because my old standbys had seen better days. I selected the Boho Lodge Collection because of the redtones...which I felt would look good in my home. I honestly didn't give much of a look to the ornaments represented in the photos. But when I opened my well-packed box of Gigi Seasons ornaments I was BLOWN AWAY! The variety of styles was so much more than I expected. And the quality is unlike anything I've ever purchased before. 100 worked great on my Mt. Balsa tree (but I had about 50 "old" ones that I wanted to incorporate into the tree so I'm sure 180 ornaments would be stunning). As with everything I've purchased form Gigi Seasons, these are incredible quality and value. They'll be part of my family's treasured collection for years.
The packaging was so nice, and the color of the ribbon is perfect for my tree. The quality of the ribbon is excellent, and the wires are sturdy and hold well in the shapes that I want. Wonderful product!
