Celebrate a Lone Star State Christmas With Your Very Own Cactus Tree

If you look back at past December issues of our magazine, you know that there’s more than one way to decorate for a Southern Christmas. Some celebrate the season with a traditional tree wrapped in tartan ribbon and family heirlooms, others opt for tinsel and ornaments in pastel hues. We’ve seen taxidermy, citrus, and magnolia branches take center stage in the holiday festivities. 

This year, I’m turning up the fun and not taking my decorations too seriously. After months at home, I plan to pack my space with oodles of joy. It may not be the same formal decor that you would find at my Gran’s house, but I still think that she would approve of my robust Christmas spirit this year.

To start, I’ve got my eye on themed tabletop trees, wreaths with plenty of personality, and now this new take on the Christmas cactus from Amazon. As a Texas resident, I can already picture this low-maintenance tree stealing the show on my covered porch. It’s pre-lit, artificial, and has its own ornaments. Setup and take-down should be a breeze, just what I need in 2020.

On Amazon, 70% of reviewers gave this charming tree five stars with comments including, “Better than the pictures show!” and “This is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.” The tree comes in both six foot and seven foot sizes, so you can pick the best height for your room. The cactus has a sturdy metal base, but I will certainly keep an eye out for a tree skirt that can give this jolly giant a polished look. You can buy this Lone Star State-inspired tree here, starting at $109.99. Once you’ve made this colorful decoration your own, be sure to tag us on Instagram so we can see your one-of-a-kind displays. Merry Christmas, y’all!
