How Should I Decorate My Tree?

Decorating the Christmas tree is one of our favorite holiday traditions - it just brings that joyful spirit into your home! Whether you've been trimming trees for years or you're new to it, We've picked up some tips and tricks over time for making your tree truly beautiful and unique. Let us walk you through it step-by-step, from picking the perfect decorations to adding those finishing touches.

Step 1: Choose a Theme

Before you start decorating, pick a theme or color scheme for your tree. This helps everything look cohesive and the decorations really complement each other. Classic ideas like red and green, gold and silver, or all white are always gorgeous. But you can get creative and choose colors that match your personal style too. A colorful, eclectic tree can be just as pretty as a traditional one!

Step 2: Hang the Lights

Start by putting up the lights on your tree. Begin at the top and make your way down, stringing the lights in and out of the branches as you go. Try to spread them evenly without winding too tight - that can look messy and cluttered. Traditional white lights are always pretty, but colored or LED lights can give a modern twist. However you do it, the lights should set the whole mood for your tree!

Step 3: Add Garlands or Ribbon

Once your lights are up, start adding garland or ribbons to your tree. Again, begin at the top and make your way down, evenly spacing out the garland or ribbons as you go. Wide garland and ribbons make a bold statement. Thinner ones create a more understated look. Play around with different widths and textures of garland to get the effect you want. This step really elevates your tree and makes it extra gorgeous!

Step 4: Hang the Ornaments

Now for the best part - hanging those beautiful ornaments! Start by placing the bigger ones around your tree evenly. Then fill in with medium and smaller ornaments, using them to cover any gaps or empty spots. Mix up the sizes and colors as you go to give visual depth and interest. Step back every so often to make sure you've got a nice, balanced distribution. Take your time and have fun with it - decorating with ornaments is so lovely!

Step 5: Add Tree Toppers

Finally, add a tree topper to complete your Christmas tree. Tree toppers can be anything from a classic star to a unique and whimsical ornament. Choose a tree topper that complements the overall theme and style of your tree.

Step 6: Final Touches

The last step is topping your tree - this really pulls the whole look together! Tree toppers can be anything from a traditional star to something unique and whimsical that shows off your personality. Choose one that fits the theme and style of your tree. We love seeing all the creative tree toppers folks come up with nowadays.
