A recent trend that has come about in recent years would be to decorate your tree, or occasionally even your complete home, in a theme. This theme may be anything from a matching color scheme, a theme based on a certain Christmas item, or even a popular animated or tv character. Does it seem hard? Not really, just make use of these suggestions as motivation.
Modern: It is simple to decorate your tree in a contemporary theme. Most modern day styles in home decor include sleek lines and standard color schemes. Use this exact same thought in embellishing your tree in a contemporary theme. Select clear or white lights from top to bottom, a basic tree topper of glass or silver, and a classy black and white color scheme. Given that it might be difficult to find black ornaments, decide instead for black artificial flower stems. This provides you the necessary color and usually takes you one additional step away from the traditional seasonal tree.
Color Coordinated: In case you are not looking to decorate the whole room, or if your room has a color scheme that won't go with conventional red and green, you can color coordinate your Christmas tree with your existing decor. Ornaments are available nowadays in a wide variety of shapes and hues. Choose shades that mix with your present decor and make a few artificial seasonal flower arrangements in the same tones to easily finish your holiday decorating.
Snowman or Santa: This may appear like a traditional Christmas concept, but it has a completely new twist. As opposed to having a combination of holiday ornaments, select one figure such as a snowman or Santa. Purchase unique ornaments of this character for your holiday tree from discount stores and a few collectible figurines of it as well. Just following through with this one character through the room will make your Seasonal decorating look as though you hired a professional for a very limited expense.
Disney or Cartoon Theme: This is one of the easiest and least costly themes to do yourself and it is additionally the one that draws the most compliments. For this theme, use multi colored lights a great deal all through the Christmas tree and room particularly if you are lucky enough to have a fireplace with a mantel. Go to the party supplies part of any store and get inexpensive party favors of your selected character. With just some thread or clear string, you can turn these items into ornaments easily. Don't neglect the possibilities of printed gift bags, fill with tinsel and place on the tree as well. For a tree topper, purchase one stuffed character or doll from the toy department and secure to the tree with floral wire. Easy, one of a kind, and definitely a conversation starter.
Twinkle and Elegance: This is my own favorite. I keep thinking that I will do this as soon as my daughter outgrows the Disney theme. Cover the tree with many clear or white lights, there is no such thing as too many! Buy inexpensive clear ornaments in snowflake and ball shapes and place on the Christmas tree. For a bit of added opulence, insert peacock feathers too. I buy mine from a nearby flea market, but many craft supply stores have them as well. For a Christmas tree topper, spend a little extra money on glass or crystal. When a tree in this theme is lighted, the clear glass and plastic sparkle and no one can help but take notice of the spectacular colors of a peacock feather.
