We’re giving away a 5-Piece Laguiole Knife Set! Enter to win today →

August seems like ages ago at this point but we are old enough to remember when everyone was excited for the fall season. Now that fall is upon us, everyone is already wishing the foliage away and hoping that winter will arrive soon. Meanwhile, there are some of us who are simply tired of 2020 and are looking to skip ahead to 2021, if at all possible.

Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks are already breaking out the pumpkin spice and we have made our way to both locations. What happens we are ready to move past the pumpkin spice, though? Winter is right around the corner and with winter, comes Christmas. While some may tease us for it, we are ready to start planning winter as soon as fall arrives. The decorations are our favorite part of the holiday.

Whether we are choosing the perfect Christmas lights or looking for the right stocking stuffers, finding the right decorations is not always as easy as it looks. Unfortunately, there are homes that cannot fit a full-size Christmas tree. And if you are someone who is experiencing this sort of design limitation, you are definitely going to want to read on and learn more.

We have the perfect solution for this all too common problem. If you have spacing constraints that are tough to workaround at the moment, you don’t have to go without. This latest trend is smart (as well as small). When you are struggling to find space on the coffee table for a smaller tree that goes with the rest of your decorations, the succulent is the way to go.

These trees are perfect for anyone who is looking to add that extra special touch to their home. The trees are only about a foot tall, so they are not going to take up too much space. Since they’re made out of succulents, that means that it technically qualifies as an arrangement (and not a tree). We won’t tell anyone if you don’t!

The succulent tree is a perfect desk centerpiece and it is a great way to decorate the workplace without creating too much clutter. Best of all, they are incredibly easy to care for! If you give them a spritz of water every 10-14 days, they will be just fine. Artificial trees are available if you would like to avoid that effort.
