If you are planning on putting up your own tree in your home, make sure you follow these holiday tree safety decorating tips.
- Real or Fake Tree?
An artificial tree is the safest option as many faux trees are flame retardant and look just like real trees. If you must buy a real tree, then make sure that it stays well-watered throughout its stay in your home. Real trees are extremely flammable, and any shortage could engulf your tree in flames within seconds.
Glass ornaments are beautiful but can be dangerous to small children and pets. If any slip and shatter, the shard of glass can cut deep into flesh and cause a rather unsightly injury. Opt for plastic until they get older, or hang them high on the tree to keep away from curious hands (and paws).
