One of the hottest new color palettes is copper and teal, which is an update on the chocolate and robin's egg blue from the past few years. Designer Erinn Valencich uses a few different types of greenery, including bay leaves, glitter sprigs and deep copper leaves, to create a nice contrast with the tree. Another trendy design element is feathers, which Valencich uses as a topper to add height to the tree.

Erinn's Holiday Decorating Tips:

When using larger ornaments, place them deeper into the tree so that the color radiates from the center.
Pay attention to placement. If you're eyeing some special ornaments this season, you don't have to buy a lot of them. By placing them in the front, your guests will never know you only have a few.
