The Christmas Season is here. It is time to drag out the Christmas decorations and get in the holiday mood. With so many options and decorations becoming less expensive, there is no reason why you can not have the holiday wonderland of your dreams.
A new trend that has come about in recent years is to decorate your tree, or sometimes even your entire home, in a theme. This theme can be anything from a matching color scheme, an theme based on a certain Christmas item, or even a popular cartoon or television character. Does it sound difficult? Not really, just use the following ideas as inspiration.
Contemporary: It is easy to decorate your tree in a contemporary theme. Most modern designs in home d©cor involve sleek lines and standard color schemes. Use this same idea in decorating your tree in a modern theme. Select clear or white lights from top to bottom, a simple tree topper of glass or silver, and an elegant black and white color scheme. Since it may be difficult to find black ornaments, opt instead for black silk flower stems. This gives you the necessary color and takes you one more step away from the traditional Christmas tree.
Color Coordinated: If you are not wanting to decorate the entire room, or if you room has a color scheme that won't flow with traditional red and green, you can color coordinate your tree with you existing d©cor. Ornaments are now available in a variety of shapes and hues. Select hues that blend with you existing d©cor and create a few artificial Christmas floral arrangements in the same shades to easily finish your Christmas decorating.
Snowman or Santa: This may sound like a traditional Christmas theme, but it has a new twist. Rather than having a mix of holiday ornaments, select one character such as a snowman or Santa. Purchase different ornaments of this character for your tree from discount stores and a few figurines of it as well. Just following through with this one character throughout the room will make your holiday 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 theme to do yourself and it is also the one that attracts the most compliments. For this theme, use multi colored lights heavily throughout the tree and room especially if you are lucky enough to have a fireplace with a mantel. Go to the party supplies section of any store and purchase cheap party favors of your selected character. With just some thread or clear string, you can turn these items into ornaments with ease. Don't overlook 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, unique, and definitely a conversation starter.
Sparkle and Elegant: This is my personal favorite. I keep thinking that I will do this once my daughter outgrows the Disney theme. Cover the tree with many clear or white lights, there is no such thing as too much! buy inexpensive clear ornaments in snowflake and ball shapes and place on the tree. For a bit of added opulence, add peacock feathers as well. I get mine from a local flea market, but many craft supply stores carry them as well. For a 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 notice the stunning colors of a peacock feather.
These are just a few tips to get you started. The possibilities are without end and the only limitation is your own creativity.
