The Best Christmas Tree Collars and Bases

ChristmasAnneke McConnell


Hey friends! I hope you are doing well. :-) Thanks for the love on my last blog post all about Instagram Essentials for Business!  Making some small shifts can really make ALL the difference. 

Today's blog post is all about Christmas tree collars! I LOVE this look and when I did a poll on my Coastal Interiors Instagram for your preference, it was heavily in favor of Christmas Tree Collars.

Some call them bases. Some people achieve a similar look with baskets, buckets, basins, or stands, but in general, it is having the look of a collar versus a traditional Christmas tree skirt.

By far, THIS ONE is my favorite for looks. It may sound a little silly to some, but you could convert it into a dog bed during all the other seasons. All you'd need is a similar size round dog bed (like this one) to plop in the middle of it and you're good to go!  Another one worth noting is THIS ONE which is my favorite for affordability.


There are plenty of beautiful options out there and even a fun spin on the concept like this Snowman Tree Collar. That would be so FUN for a kid’s Christmas tree. I know our kids would get a kick out of something like that!


I’d love to know if you end up buying and decorating your Christmas Tree with one of these collars! Comment below or share with me on my personal Instagram

Christmas Tree Ideas

Happy Friday friends!  Thank you for the great feedback on my last Blog Talk post! That question is truly important before starting your own blog and one I wish I would have asked myself when I began blogging.

With Christmas decorating just around the corner, now is the time to snag a faux (or real) Christmas tree, whatever your preference is!  This year I'm leaning toward a faux tree after dealing with some dry trees, dropping needles, and little bugs. I think I'm ready to make the switch!

Before diving into these beautiful and inspiring Christmas Trees, a few recommended places to check out Christmas trees online, with GREAT search features for height, width, pre-lit or no, flocked (which are going out of stock quickly!), etc. are:


Wayfair (real and potted Christmas trees available)

Amazon (recommend Balsam Hill)
