Having trouble choosing a tree theme this year? Well here are a few ideas from the good folks at HGTV! Which would YOU choose? Me? Definitely the Country Christmas tree...that is so me.
Hmm...but the Simple & Modern one is me too...or, maybe the White Christmas one. How about a Simple, White, Modern, Country Christmas tree? Uh huh. That would be me. Which one is more like YOU? Anyone feel all glitzy and glamorous?
A Country Christmas Tree
A Winter Wonderland TreeMix trendy with classic for the holidays. Designer Lauren Lake combines white lights with a stylish metallic scheme. When stringing up the lights, start at the top so that you have easy access to the electrical outlet at the end of the wire. Pick a variety of ornaments with different shapes, sizes, and textures. For her tree, Lauren uses silver, gold and pearlescent baubles with sequined ornaments, teardrop shapes, glitter-covered pinecones, and striking gold stars. To make it even more interesting, try adding a floral element with fake white poinsettias and hydrangeas. A bright metallic bow at the top of the tree is a real showstopper, and a little bit of spray snow on the tips of the branches adds a fresh, frosty feel.
A Glitz & Glamour TreeGo all out this season with an over-the-top white Christmas tree. For the foundation of his tree, Sparkle Josh sprays snow on the branches and adds simple white Christmas lights. Pinecones distributed throughout the tree give it an organic feel, while gold leaf garlands, mirrored ornaments and white feathery fronds add a fantasy allure. White orchid blossoms and feathered reeds add volume to the tree and act as a topper. For the final touch, weave two glittery ribbons between boughs all around your tree.
A Nature Inspired TreeNatural is the way to go for the holidays. Designer Genevieve Gorder uses both traditional Christmas lights and lights with large, spherical bulbs to give the tree some variety and really make it sparkle. To achieve this woodsy look, adds clumps of moss, berries, colorful decorative birds and other woodland creatures, like miniature fawn. Top it all off with a colored starfish to really bring home the organic theme.
A Simple & Modern TreeWhile many people want to fill their trees with colorful decorations and sparkly ornaments, sometimes it's just nice to let the natural beauty of the Christmas tree come through. Designer John Gidding decorates a simple Christmas tress with large white light bulbs and simple decorations. On that note..we are just beginning to add a little holiday cheer around out house. Gotta get busy and git 'er done! Love to you all! Susie Q
