Christmas season started early at our home this year!
This is the earliest we have set up our Christmas tree in November, all thanks to Mason Home Decor.
Previously we had to spend time at various shops looking for the right-sized Christmas tree with suitable tree trimmings and decoration. I liked it that Mason Home Decor has everything covered under one roof/website. And most importantly their stuff are not cheesy, run-of-the-mill or sub-standard quality. The concern that shoppers have about online shopping is, the actual product differs drastically from the photos. Honestly, I had my reservations initially. But the unedited videos on some of their products helped to rest any unease.
I made my choices based on the following 3 steps:
1) Budget: How much is your budget? Mason Home Decor’s Christmas products aren’t the cheapest in town. But their quality is definitely above average and reasonably priced for their quality. I was pleasantly surprised that they came nicely packed and unboxing them felt almost like unboxing presents!
|Palline Baubles – There is a mix of 3 surfaces – glossy, matte and glittery – in each package of 24 baubles.|
2) Size: We have very limited space at our current place as most new apartments are these day. The Altaeco (Slim Christmas Tree) – Artificial Colorado Pine Christmas Tree – caught my eyes immediately. It is slim and yet dense with easy-open branches. It fitted our requirement for small spaces.

3) Look and feel/Theme: If I have many houses, I will like to have a different colored-themed for each Christmas tree! Since I can have only 1 house & 1 tree, I choose my favourite Christmas tree colors – gold, silver, white and a little blue. I love the icy-cold look since we can only have sunny (or rainy) Christmases in Singapore.

We managed to squeeze the Altaeco Christmas Tree right in front of our TV console. We had such a fun time un-boxing the packages and setting up the tree with it’s trimmings together as a family. A short video of it here on Instagram.

We are very happy with the quality of the Mason Home Decor’s tree, it’s close-to-nature shade of green color and thick density of the branches/leaves. The Christmas Ornaments and Baubles are of solid quality and boost of unique designs. It is a far cry from the cheap ones I have sourced on other websites before. Well, you do have to pay for quality.
If you are pressed for time, shopping for your tree online will be a time-saver for you. However, if you are the must-touch-and-feel-before-you-buy type, Mason Home Decor has a physical shop which is open daily.
Do shop early to avoid the peak Christmas shopping season!
