Have you seen all these fabulous images of potted christmas trees floating around pinterest lately? I am loving the simplicity of them and wishing I had one for this season. In fact it's making me feel less than excited about pulling out the fake one I bought a few years back. I love the scent of a fresh tree and also the tradition of getting one, but when M+L came along the thought of battling needles and protecting the tree from crawling babies knocking it over 20 times a day made a fake tree sound a lot better than no tree at all. I also love that these are living trees that can later be planted. How great would it be to have enough outside space to plant your living christmas trees each year? Yep, I think I would quite like that. Maybe I will look for a small table top one or plant some rosemary in a lovely pot like the last photo; those are so sweet too.

  1. We bought a huge fake tree several years ago as I couldn't deal with the “Christmas tree graveyard” that lines the streets of London in the beginning of January but I have to admit that I HATE putting up our fake tree! It’s dusty, spiky and too big for its own good. After seeing these drop-dead-gorgeous trees, I am seriously considering a real one this year!

    1. i felt a little guilty about all the discarded trees too, but now that i am tiring of my fake one i am wondering what's worse: production of all that plastic or christmas tree farms. i am starting to think the plastic.

  4. There's nothing compared to the fresh smell of a Christmas tree for the holidays. I'd like to get a potted one this year so that I can feel better about myself and plant it after Christmas.

  7. The potted trees are so beautiful and they smell awesome! And to think that after the holidays you can actually plant it in the garden, somewhere ...

  8. What a novel idea! I didn't know there was an alternative to the awful plastic container you sit the tree in and then screw into place. I love how simple all these trees look. They look just as beautiful un-decorated as they with all those lights and balls on them. Of course, they all look stunning against those all-white decor ;)

  10. This is making me feel bad about my fake tree too- especially since it is about the size of one of these. I love #3- so small and manageable looking. Great post Christine!

  11. i love these! I too have a fake tree as a result of the fear that my 2 year old will go nuts with a real one. Oh the pine needles and water spilling everywhere. But I do love a real tree. We always had one growing up. These are so pretty.

  12. Our first Christmas tree had roots and we planted in the backyard after the holidays. Now it's humungous, I sometimes see it from the street passing by our old apartment. I love the tiny trees! Maybe I should get one for my desk at the office...

  13. I love these lovely pics! I was just standing out in the backyard and looking up at the christmas tree that must be 25 or 30 feet high that I bought as a little potted tree 4 years ago when I first moved to this house...it's so wonderful that it didn't end up as trash!

  14. I think I like the idea of a real tree that's classed up much better than actually having one. Because then I'd feel bad hanging up my really cheesy ornaments that I got and for forgetting to water it. Sadly, my Xmas is more sassy than classy

  15. These are gorgeous! We get a live tree every year, but not a potted one...I'm looking for a white (fake, obvs.) tree as well. Best of both worlds? And now I want a potted one too. Whine, whine, whine.

  16. OH, I like these very much! Now, all of a sudden, I must have one. (I might have to pinch one of these photos for my monthly moodboard.) In addition to the real tree we get, I do have two fake little trees that I set up next to each other in another room and wrap their bottoms with burlap. My little forest. ;) The mini one in the wooden box is killing me - So awesome.
