Nothing gets us in the holiday spirit like trimming the tree. As the centrepiece of your festive décor, a Christmas tree sets the tone for your holiday style and lets you experiment with colours and textures to make the season bright. If you're all about an expertly styled tree you can show off on social media, we've gathered some of our favourite tips on how to decorate your Christmas tree.
Mix it up
We love a classic Christmas ornament, but don’t be afraid to get creative with different shapes and textures on your tree. Even if you’re going for a cohesive look with a curated colour palette, use ornaments in varying sizes, materials and finishes. Matte velvet, metallic shimmer and uniquely shaped ornaments keep your tree looking interesting and beautiful from every angle. Non-traditional and homemade ornaments are a great way to add new textures and shapes to your tree and give you an excuse to schedule some pre-Christmas crafting time.
Hide the stand
Whether you hauled home a real tree fresh from the lot or an artificial Christmas tree fresh from your nearest Urban Barn, a basic tree stand probably isn’t in line with the rest of your holiday aesthetic. Luckily, Christmas tree stands are easy to disguise with tree skirts and collars that fit your personal style. Keep it rustic with our wood tree collars or soft and sophisticated with a faux fur tree skirt. You can even wrap a throw around the base of your tree for a similar effect, or get your shopping done early and pile wrapped presents around your tree to conceal the stand.
