Ever wondered why it is that florists and designers trees look better than yours? It’s likely because they work to a theme, so why don’t you? It’s fun to build a collection of ornaments and still vary your theme year by year – this time why not try a Victorian ‘nutcracker’ theme?
True blue, traditional red and white, or icy, sparkling silver. There are so many different ways to decorate a Christmas Tree, but here are some of the decorating ideas that have impressed me for 2016.
Not the first color you associate with Christmas, my family thought I’d lost the plot when I decided to give it a try, but I’m pleased with the result, and in the process I came up with lots of different ideas on how to approach decorating a pink Christmas tree.
This designer tree can be yours, but only if you stick to the theme and color scheme. The expensive part is the tree, don’t skimp, buy a good one and plenty of inexpensive decorations. If you splash out on one or two make sure they are gold or crystal, colors that will mix and match will almost any theme.
Sometimes the trimmed, decorated Christmas tree is just not wild enough, it doesn’t show the raw side of Christmas, the cold, the dark, the short days. If you’re looking for a tree idea with a little more wilderness and wow, try the snow tree.
The sheer size of Christmas Tree means it tends to dominate your Christmas decorations, yet many decorate their tree as an afterthought, or even leave the children to do it. Nothing looks more sad, than a sparse or badly decorated Christmas tree.
If you want a stunning tree as the centerpiece for your holiday celebrations, learn to decorate your tree in the right order, and using the appropriate number of lights, garlands and ornaments.
