Pick a color scheme your family loves or that matches your decor to inspire your Christmas tree's decorations. For a family who loves lavender, colored ball ornaments in lavender and complimentary colors are perfect for a simply decorated tree. A few strands of white lights, crystals, and snowflakes complete the serene look.
For a classic look, take the time to decorate the tree piece by piece, considering spacing and symmetry as you hang the ornaments. Delicate glass icicles give this tree a pretty uniformity.
Give a squat tree height by placing it in a large urn. Bonus: This also leaves the most under-bough room for beautifully wrapped gifts. Chartreuse pinwheel ribbons add a celebratory touch.
Everything about this tree is larger than life. From its large-scale Christmas balls and huge pinecones nestled in the branches to its commanding tabletop post, this tree makes a grand impression.
Red and green snowflakes join peppermint-stripe holiday balls to form a tree-trimming theme that doesn't overwhelm.
A towering tree commands attention in this entryway. Get the look by hanging several hues of gold-tone balls on your tree, nestling small green berries in between the boughs, and topping the whole thing off with a cascading bow.
Christmas balls and colorful candy canes keep a cool palette befitting this minimalist space. Artificial candles lend old-world charm.
Traditional trimmings call for plaid ribbons and bows, fruit and flower clusters, and religious symbols. Add small bunches of feathers for an unexpected twist.
