RAZ 2013 Tiny Tannenbaums Christmas Tree

Another stunning Christmas tree from the RAZ Imports designers. The Tiny Tannenbaums tree for 2013 uses a combination of products derived from nature…..greenery, berries, pine cones, bird nest or bird houses, poinsettias, and even deer antlers! Sure to be a hit with the men of house.

Here are more images taken at the Atlanta showroom on our recent visit.

RAZ Burlap Top Hat 3352344










Aren’t these items just lovely! And the white berry pick……I’m afraid that’s something we missed at market when we were doing our order….we don’t have any of those coming in. But wouldn’t old fashioned popcorn garland look great on this tree! Love the red berries….red birds….burlap touches in the Top Hats and the embroidered ribbon with old fashioned holly berries and leaves.

The nice thing about a collection like this too is……you can add in some natural pieces to achieve this look by gathering fresh greens and berries. Several times at my mother’s chagrin, I’ve raided her Nandina bushes for red berries at Christmas time. Now that she has passed on, I just can’t do it anymore….makes me feel guilty! But I think I know, she would want me to use them)))

You can take berries from bushes like the Nandina or holly and spritz them with liquid floor wax (Mop and Glo, etc). Just put it in a spray bottle and spritz it on, let the berries dry thoroughly and the wax will help preserve them to last through the season and give a nice shine too.

Magnolia branches also work really well for adding greenery and their rusty, leathery underside would look great with the Tiny Tannenbaums collection. The Magnolia’s leaves are deep green and glossy naturally and have strong woody stems, they won’t wilt for days.

I can see I’m going to have a hard time deciding on my Christmas theme for this year! So many choices…
