    Everything in this slideshow

    • Traditional Trim

      Breathe new life into the classic Christmas color scheme by posing deep red and crisp white ornaments against an evergreen canvas. Then coordinate the color palette with beautiful packages in the same hues.

    • Lovely in Lavender

      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.

    • Perfectly Placed

      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.

    • Golden Christmas Tree

      Laced with golden ribbon, clear lights, and gold wire flower- and dove-shape ornaments, this tree has an antique glow that's sure to remind you of past holiday seasons.

    • Stylishly Skinny Tree

      Fun and whimsical, this slender tree is perfect for rooms with tall ceilings. Fill the branches with oversize retro-inspired ornaments and smaller bold-color ornaments. Complete the look with bursts of colorfully wrapped packages.

    • A Different Interpretation

      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.

    • On the Table

      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.

    • It's Easy Being Green

      Traditional Christmas ornaments are fresh in a soft green-and-white color palette. Forgo a tree topper for a natural look.

    • Playful Snowflakes

      Red and green snowflakes join peppermint-stripe holiday balls to form a tree-trimming theme that doesn't overwhelm.

      Stand Tall

      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.

      Old Meets New

      Christmas balls and colorful candy canes keep a cool palette befitting this minimalist space. Artificial candles lend old-world charm.

      Pretty in Plaid

      Traditional trimmings call for plaid ribbons and bows, fruit and flower clusters, and religious symbols. Add small bunches of feathers for an unexpected twist.
