Frequently Asked Questions
Below are more tips and ideas for Christmas tree decorating.
What’s Trending for Christmas Tree Decorating This Year?
This year, there’s continued interest in minimalist, Scandinavian-inspired, and monochromatic styles. There’s also an inclination to create a warm and cosy atmosphere using mood lighting, natural textures, and traditional Christmas colours and motifs.
What’s the Best Way to Decorate a Christmas Tree Like a Pro?
For a Christmas tree that looks professionally decorated, make sure you have the correct number of ornaments for your tree’s size. Start with larger or more eye-catching ornaments and place them liberally throughout the tree. Fill in the spaces with smaller baubles, tree picks and sprays, and other complementary pieces. Another tip is to start with a pre-lit artificial Christmas tree – these already come professionally pre-strung with lights, making your tree look just like the ones you see at the store.
What Is the Most Famous Colour Combination for a Christmas Tree?
The most popular Christmas colour palette includes shades of red, green, gold, and silver. Use bright red and gold décor against the vibrant foliage of your Christmas tree for a classic look. Modern alternatives feature bright blue or blush pink baubles against a flocked or white Christmas tree or a fully neutral or monochromatic palette against darker needles.
What Can I Use Instead of a Tree Skirt?
A Christmas tree skirt not only hides the legs and wiring at the base of your tree but also complements and completes your chosen décor theme. Instead of a skirt, you can use unique fabrics like faux fur or velvet. Alternatively, you can use a tree collar in a design that suits your motif.
