I know, anything with glitter sounds like a stupid plan, but I make exceptions for these little blingy birches. See what I did there?
Okay good, here's why:
• They come in a ton of colors and sizes. And what chick doesn't dig options? There are glitter trees for all holiday color schemes, traditional or eclectic.
• They pair great with other Christmas decor, whether in the forefront or as background layering.
• Throw them in an apothecary jar and it REALLY looks like you know what you're doing. Accidentally did this for a tablescape one year and it looked so good, it's become an annual thang.
• If you display them near Christmas lights, they twinkle and really add a whimsical aspect to the space.
• They're very easy, light and maneuverable without much effort. Putting them on a small dainty wall shelf or furniture ledges won't have you saying three Hail Mary's that everything doesn't crash to the floor. I speak from experience; holiday decor can be HEAVY.
• They're cheap as fuck. And let's be real, I can't NOT buy cheap shit that looks pretty. You can start your own glitter forest @ Target $1 spot, Hobby Lobby, TJ, Marshalls, Home Goods...
• Okay, cleaning the glitter does kind of suck. But so does vacuuming rogue pine needles until February, and real Christmas trees are still selling like hotcakes. I rest my case.
