Hi, I'm Kimberly Seeherman, event design expert, and owner at Events by Fabulous. Today, we're gonna be talking about artificial Christmas trees that are eco-friendly. They are a great idea, why? One, they're guilt-free. You're not hurting mother nature. Two, they're not a fire hazard because they're artificial, you don't have to worry about lights next to real tree branches, and three they can be used year and year after again, and they're so simple, they're really just an awesome plus. Now, the important thing to remember when you are buying an artificial tree is that you look on the box to see if it's made from recycled materials, because PVC, it's not so good for the environment. So you want to make sure that the materials the manufacturer is using are recycled. Now, if you are buying an artificial tree, you want to do a couple tips and tricks to make sure that it's gonna look its best possible for the holiday season. I'm gonna show you right now a couple things you can do to take your artificial tree and make it look as real as possible. So after we build the whole tree we're gonna put the different sections together. The first step is really just straightening the branches. The important thing to do is literally just pull them out and get them as straight as possible because they often get very crushed in the box for shipping. And then you're actually going to arrange the branches kind of in a random order, kind of cross them to give it a maximum fullness, and then after you've pretty much got your branches arranged how you want them, the last step is just lightly pressing down all over the trees to give the branches just a downward tilt, because this is how they occur in nature. And then afterwards, if you want to just go around and take a couple random twigs and face them up again, just to give it more of a little bit of randomness, you're going to end up with a tree that's quite full, quite lovely, and looking as real as possible.
