Merry & Bright
It’s easy to deck the halls with boughs of holly... and tinsel... and lights. Minimalists will appreciate keeping things clean, simple and aesthetically pleasing with neutral colors and subtle tidings.
Take a little inspo from Elvis’s Christmas swan song and say goodbye to the usual red and green. Blue can be just as seasonally-appropriate and chic, especially if it matches your pre-existing color scheme.
The snacks and treats are some of the best things about the holiday season, so why not go edible with your decor too? Foodies and decorators can make nice over the meeting of their two fave traditions.
The Sweetest Thing
And if you’re really trying to take your Christmas cravings to a whole new level, you can just dedicate the whole entire tree to candy canes. Consider this your freshest tree yet.
All That Glitters
Frankincense and myrrh are great, but they pale in comparison to gold and silver, especially when it comes to the whole decorating and color scheme of a noel-ready room.
Girls just wanna have fun Christmas trees, so skip the cliches and take the theme from red, green and yawn to pink, glam and uniquely you. If you can’t show off your personality, it’s not really your tree.
If you’re really trying to throw tradition out the window while also remembering the real meaning of the season, this heartwarming idea involves Christmas cards and 2-D innovation. Bonus: no more lugging live trees or pesky pine needles.
The higher the tree, the closer to God. Less might be more, but more is more and that’s especially true when it comes to holiday treatment. Over the top and through the woods, it can be your best year yet.
Of course, there’s always the option to take the usual trappings and tidings and increase them about 200%. Christmas fanatics never mind another trip around the holiday aisle. Buckle up.
Ideally, your Christmas tree honors the season, but it also says something about you or your family. For those who beat to their own colorful drum, looks like you’ve met your polka-dotted match.
