Jackson & Perkins Tabletop Trees are Taking Over the Holiday Market
Pre-decorated Italian Stone Pine and Dwarf Alberta Spruce trees are taking over the holiday market. These tabletop trees may be petite, but they pack a festive punch, and they're being displayed in nursing homes, dorms, children's rooms, and offices as well as bringing seasonal cheer to entry tables, cabins, and city apartments. Jackson & Perkins is taking the lead with trees that are carefully tended for 4 years in preparation for the holidays, then adorned with high-quality decorations.
Diane Reeder, Merchandise Manager for Jackson & Perkins, states that the trees she helps design stand out due to the details she and her team attend to, including ensuring each tree is decorated all the way around, so it's gorgeous from any angle. "I love selecting the ornaments for our tabletop trees! Each tree is developed with a specific theme. Our ornaments stand out because they're three dimensional and made of quality materials. Each year, I send a different tree to all the members of my family. This year, we're offering 14 new and distinctive styles, so my teenage daughter, my sister in her city apartment, my mom in her country home, and my grandmother in a nursing home are all covered with styles that reflect them!"
Jackson & Perkins designers do extensive research into the latest trends, and the decorations, colors, and containers are selected accordingly, creating unique and exclusive styles. Each is prepared with the utmost attention to detail. Select trees even offer lights powered by a battery pack, enabling them to be displayed in the center of a room.
Their trees arrive in shake-proof boxes that keep the ornaments and lights in place throughout their journey. These boxes feature a "front door" that allows them to be opened right-side-up. Once the tree is removed, it only needs its branches fluffed and lights plugged in, and it's ready to be displayed. And once the festivities are over, these trees can be transplanted into the landscape, where they will continue to grow more beautiful over time.
Jackson & Perkins, founded in 1872, quickly became the world's foremost hybridizer of roses, a position it maintains today, with more award-winning rose introductions than any other company. It was only natural to translate that garden expertise into the finest line of living holiday gifts.
