The trick to any Christmas tree is LAYER, LAYER, LAYER! Traditional Christmas trees often start with large ornaments stuffed into any sparse areas, then sticks/branches, garland/ribbon and the small ornaments go on last. Try using a tree collar as a modern version of the traditional tree skirt! Layering these embellishments creates dimension and results in a clean, finished look. Here are a few of our favorite looks to create a Christmas wonderland…
White on White
Nothing says Winter Wonderland like an all white Christmas tree. It’s the color of the season (who doesn’t wish for a white Christmas?), so it’s no wonder families love having lots of white on their trees year after year.
Pro tip: Flocked trees are fun but can be really messy! Try putting a trash bag under the base of the tree and covering it with your tree skirt. This makes for a less messy clean-up after Christmas.
Less doesn’t always have to be more. There’s never enough Christmas if we can be honest with ourselves, so one tree just isn’t always enough! Sometimes there needs to be an array of Christmas trees. This style is also a great option to try out a tree collar.
Pro Tip: Having a cluster of Christmas trees of varying sizes will require a large amount of space. The picture below has enough window coverage to use all three trees while complimenting the space. Only go for this option if you have enough room for the trees to not look cramped.
Buffalo check is a timeless holiday trend. It looks great in black and white or with color! Also try matching your gifts with your tree. It makes a huge difference in the aesthetics of the tree.
Pro Tip: You can add touches of Buffalo Check in many ways. Try using it in a garland, in bows, or even in a tree skirt.
