    Balsam Hill’s Christmas tree skirts are essential to elegant tree decorating. Our heirloom-quality Christmas tree skirts are popular accessories that add flair and polish to your beloved tree.

    History of Christmas Tree Skirts

    It’s believed that the use of Christmas skirts for trees originated in Germany, where the tradition of Christmas tree decorating started. In the early days, people decorated real Christmas trees with actual lit candles. They placed a mat underneath their tree to catch candle wax drippings and fallen tree needles. These mats, made of simple and plain materials, were more utilitarian than decorative.

    As Christmas tree stands grew more popular in the late 1800s, the mats evolved into the more modern tree skirts we’re familiar with. The main purpose of Christmas skirts for trees was to hide unsightly tree stands. However, they became more decorative as families began to embroider and embellish tree skirts to match their Christmas décor.

    At the time when gifts were hung on the tree and taken down on Christmas Eve, Christmas tree skirts also made perfect spots to set up miniature nativity scenes or Christmas villages. The gift-giving tradition has since changed as more families place gifts under their trees throughout the festive season. Today, a Christmas tree skirt also serves as an elegant backdrop for presents underneath the Christmas tree.
