A tip for a Christmas tree that will last through the Holiday

We are often asked why our Christmas trees last longer than all the others. Well in this blog post you will enjoy our secret to a long last Christmas tree. In order to understand what makes a Christmas last long you have to understand the trees source of life... WATER. Most trees are cut from the farm and after a few days the trees freeze and harden at the bottom. This means that when you get home to water the tree the hardened bottom doesn't allow the water to move into the wood and out to the branches. 

Here's the secret. You MUST cut the bottom of the tree before placing the tree in a tree stand. When you cut off the hard crusted bottom it opens the tree to receive water. 

Every tree that we deliver gets freshly cut leaving the tree ready and anxious to absorb the water. The tree will enjoy receiving all of that delicious water long into the holiday season allowing for a beautiful tree. We all know there is nothing worse than a tree that dying and shedding dry leaves before Christmas day! 

A Vision of your wedding in Jackson Hole

Jackson has many different wedding venues. Some styles are old western and some modern rustic. It's important that no matter what venue that you keep an eye on the surroundings. If you have a beautiful balcony view of the Grand Tetons then you may not want a centerpiece that obstructs from the view. Keeping this in mind will allow you to see the big picture of the venue and what unique things it offers. The knot has some good advice on this subject as well. 

A Jackson Hole wedding tip

Listen to Mother Nature- Though Jackson Hole weather is always unpredictable, it's important to remember that if you want a sunny wedding, the best months are June to September. If your heart isn't set on a warm sunny day 0ther times of year as still beautiful. In the fall the leaves change colors, and if you are lucky the mountains will be crusted with snow. The combination of the two are beautiful, but no matter what time of year we have the emphatic Tetons, many dining options, and a great small town resort culture.
