LDN Life went along to the Tiny Tree Pop-Up Shop in Shoreditch Boxpark to see if small Christmas trees were a good idea. When I say small, I mean tiny, these like Bloom & Wild’s flowers can fit through most letter boxes.
With a less than small price of ‘from £30’, each tree stands at 40cm tall. Thankfully they come with everything you need to get started, complete with plant pot, wintery moss and a bright, joyful bow.
Visitors to the Tiny Tree Pop-Up Shop can then choose from a variety of themed, mini decorations on offer to dress their tree, including: woodland creatures, fairy lights, Christmas baubles and Christmas bells.
Bloom & Wild’s mini trees have been thoughtfully created with the city-based customers in mind, even allowing those living in a shoe box add some festive cheer to their space. Got more space and money than sense? Well you’re also in luck, the trees also make for lovely table centerpiece, for even larger spaces, heck you could get a row of them.
If you haven’t visited Boxpark before, this pop-up is a great excuse to visit to find something a bit different this Christmas, with a mix of fashion and lifestyle brands, galleries, cafes, and restaurants.
So if you haven’t guessed already, I feel the price is a bit on the high side for what you get. From £15 or £20 would have been a better price in my opinion, but hey I really like my tree, even though my decorating skills does leave a lot to be desired. If the price point doesn’t put you off and you want a premium tiny tree experience, then you won’t be disappointed. That said, I might be being a bit of a scrooge, look at ‘Carl’ (on the left) the rather sad looking £5 Christmas tree I purchased 5 years ago.
If you can’t get to the pop-up by Sunday 11th, you can also buy miniature Christmas trees and a selection of decorations via the Bloom & Wild website or via their mobile app.
