We arrived in December. In just three weeks, we will meet up with family or friends around a large table, beautifully decorated, to celebrate one of the most anticipated holidays of the year: Christmas.
And the Christmas tree ? It is impossible to deprive yourself of the inescapable symbol of this warm feast. Each year, several people ask themselves the same question: how and what Christmas tree to choose? Where can it be placed: in the living room, in the dining room or at the entrance? It is true that for small apartments the choice of a large tree is not always very practical and can even be cumbersome. Fortunately, creativity and imagination come together to offer us many alternatives of classical fir. Discover our selection of more than 40 examples of alternative Christmas trees.
The alternative Christmas tree in more than 40 ideas
The natural Christmas tree often tempts us with its attractive charm and smell. Unfortunately, it is not always the most practical solution. For small apartments and houses that lack space, the tree can be bulky. In addition, the fir trees sold on the market come from a large annual production that is not always respectful of the environment. Did you know that in Europe Wallonia in Denmark is the second largest producer in Europe of Christmas trees. The requests each year are numerous. For this reason, manufacturers often use pesticides to meet customer expectations. These intensive crops have a significant impact on our environment. All the same, this solution is more ecological than the artificial tree unless you want to make your own tree with recycled materials. How can we do it? The alternatives are very diverse and ideal for small spaces. Let's discover them together:

It is true that nothing can replace the freshness of the natural Christmas tree. If you have a balcony or terrace, it is advisable to grow a home in a flowerpot. It is important that he be placed outside because he likes the cold. Placed inside, he will not live very long. If you do not have a balcony, we suggest you recreate the shape of the fir on your wall with different objects. Here is an example of two fir trees in minimalist style, decorated with small objects and balls.
