A matching color palette is extremely important and the variety of themes to pick from is vast. Nowadays, you can find some pretty amazing almost real-looking artificial trees.
Nowadays, you can find bauble sets, which contain different shapes and sizes.
If you have other types of decorations, make sure they are spread out evenly and let your traditional baubles serve as separators.
Twigs, berries, flowers and pinecones often serve as nice additions to a Christmas tree. Make sure the size is correct in relation to the width and length of the tree.
Ribbons on Christmas trees of all shapes and sizes have become very trendy. Attach five or six strands, according to your tree’s size, of ribbon to the top and let them flow down freely.
For an extra effect you can glue baubles or any ornaments to the ribbon.
Add the ribbon before anything else and tuck it deep into the branches with just a little bit of it peeking out.
Weave the ribbon around the tree, starting from the bottom. Create bows (the size is up to you) and attach them to the ends of the branches for an elegant look.
Create a large bow and add it as a tree topper. Whether you go for tartan, striped, or any other color combination, a multicolored ribbon brings lots of elegance to your tree. To finish off the entire look of your tree you can place wrapped boxes underneath, which, of course, should be color coordinated.
Furthermore, try color coordinating the decor of the rest of the house. Your Christmas tree should definitely be the focal point of your home, but that doesn’t mean that you should overlook the rest. Add some wreaths and figurines for extra special looks.
What’s more intertwine some of the baubles you used for the tree into the wreath for a finished look. Wrapped presents give the tree a finished look Twigs, berries and pinecones give your tree a rustic look
