Alternative Christmas Trees 2016

11.28.2016

Welcome to the new edition of alternative Christmas trees. Every year, we round up the best ideas out there of non traditional trees. Although I love the smell and look of a good ol’ tree, I’m also fond of clever ideas gathered around the web from creatives reinventing the holiday tree : whether it’s a question of missing space in a small flat, or simply wanting to avoid sacrificing a tree for the holiday season, there are many options to choose from.

You guys have been asking to get alternative holiday tree ideas earlier in the season to get some time to replicate the ideas and concepts, so here is the blog’s yearly round up!

    As a vegetarian I always wonder about how and why people (often eating meat without any problems) all of a sudden become all guiltridden over their Christmas tree (and eat a turkey without batting an eye). I eat broccoli without feeling the need to feel guilty towards the broccoli, I don’t think we need to feel guilt towards our Christmas trees. And look at it this way, they have stored up a lot of CO2 in their lifetime.

    I love the idea of making trees with wooden sticks and other decorations. This year I’m planning on using white feathers to give it a special touch. Loved all the pictures !!
