For many people, decorating the Christmas tree is a favorite part of the holiday season that they look forward to every year. There is no “right” and “wrong” way of decorating when it comes to Christmas trees because everybody has their own style, preferences, and tastes. However, if you are looking for inspiration on how to deck the centerpiece of the festive celebrations, here are some fabulous ideas that will help create a spectacular Christmas tree.
Floral Christmas Tree Theme
Faux flowers are a lovely way to create a soft, yet dramatic, effect on your Christmas tree without spending a fortune. Silk flowers in soft pastel and cream shades, like magnolias, orchids, and roses will look great on a tree with a snowy color scheme. To attach faux flowers to the Christmas tree, just wrap their floral wire around the branches or use floral string lights.
Purple Christmas Tree Theme
Purple has always been known as the color of royalty, so bring a royal touch to your Christmas tree by decorating it in rich purple and violet shades. Purple is a bold color that pairs well with other Christmas colors such as gold and sparkling silver.
Purple gives you plenty of variety when it comes to decorating for Christmas. You can add it to almost any tree – traditional, white and even to a black tree. Black trees look very sleek and dramatic with deep purple baubles and contemporary ornaments
Winter Wonderland Christmas Tree Theme
While you can’t always have snow on Christmas, you can create a winter wonderland indoors. Outfit a standard Christmas tree with a thick snow blanket to remind you of the winters of your childhood or the winter trips to the mountains. To create a convincing effect, lay lengths of rolled cotton along the branches of your tree and then sprinkle crystal snow over the cotton.
Country Style Christmas Trees with Rustic Vibe
This is a very homey, warm and cozy theme that makes you think of log cabins, wood fires, and snow. To achieve the rustic, country look, get inspired by the outdoors and consider decorating with pine cones, branches, straw, raffia, and burlap. You can also use handmade Christmas decorations, vintage ornaments, and antique toys.
For a tree that’s both rustic and festive, liven it up with garlands made entirely of pine cones. For a more natural look, leave the pine cones unadorned and combine them with red cardinal birds or winter berries. The best thing is that the natural, country-home-style decorations are easy and cheap to make.
Snowflakes Christmas Tree Theme
Christmas and snowflakes go hand in hand and decorating your tree with delicate paper or crochet snowflakes will create a magical snowfall effect. These beautiful handmade ornaments will pop against the dark green branches of the Christmas tree and make it look unique. Complete the snowy effect by adding other simple ornaments, such as bells and small glittery balls.
