7 Best Alternatives to Traditional Christmas Trees

7 Best Alternatives to Traditional Christmas Trees

In yesterday's post about alternatives to classic green and red holiday decorations a reader wanted to know where to find retro white christmas trees. Well that started us on a hunt and a roundup. So if you're looking for a synthetic tree, a cardboard tree, a living tree or an alternative to even having a christmas tree, we've gotcha covered:


Rent a Living Christmas Tree through a place like the Living Christmas Tree Company who will drop off and pick up your living christmas tree.

White Trees have a great retro feel with bright glass ornaments, or can go sophisticated with a white on white palette. Find a 6.5 footer at Target for $56 or a more filled in 7 footer for $200.

Blue Trees for a blue christmas. We found a really pretty one (they call it smurftastic) at treetopia in either a 5 foot or 6 foot style.

Pink Trees to recreate that Blueprint cover start at $99.

Silver or Champagne for a sophisticated Christmas or a great New Years Tree go for metal. Target has a silver tree and a giant gold one.

(There's a great debate about the green-ness of synthetic vs. real christmas trees right here.)
