Planning Your Tree: From Choosing a Color Scheme to Picking Out Ornaments

Choosing a color scheme for your tree and picking out the ornaments to go with it is a fantastic way to make an impact during the holidays. As I’ve grown older, I’ve found that my tastes have changed and are still evolving!  It’s really fun to mix it up, either with nostalgic, classic pieces or with unique, contemporary designs.

Here are some ideas to help put your own twist on your artificial Christmas tree this year:

  1. Get Inspiration From the Season – Use seasonal colors inspired by Nature! Add a touch of elegance by using colors in jewel tones like ruby red, emerald green, sapphire blue, polished gold and sparkling silver (or even a combination of two or three colors!).
  2. Take a Walk Down Memory Lane – Remember how you used to celebrate Christmas when you were a kid? Use colors that bring feelings of nostalgia, like traditional red and green! This is also the perfect time to display any ornaments that you’ve inherited or received as gifts.
  3. Keep It In the Family – Make a strong impact by choosing a monochromatic color, like a tree in beautiful, classic white, a.k.a. white Christmas trees. This particular color scheme serves as a great backdrop for other colors. Add variety by using different variations of a single color throughout the room, like green, red or blue.

Remember, just choose whatever puts you in high spirits and makes you feel like the holidays are truly here. Happy decorating!
