Decorating Your Slim Christmas Tree

With the increased popularity of more modern interior design styles, many are turning to slim Christmas trees for their homes and apartments. Not only are these space-saving trees naturally elegant, they are also the perfect accessories for themed celebrations. Read on for a few tips on how to decorate the perfect slim Christmas tree.

Less Is More

The perfect Christmas tree should not be bursting with décor. Since slim Christmas trees already command attention due to their delicate profile, keep in mind that less is more. Smaller Christmas ornaments should go on top of the tree while bigger ones should stay at the bottom to create a sense of balance. Decorating the tree in a monochromatic color theme also works particularly well.

Neatly Wrapped Presents

Presents underneath your skinny tree are also good Christmas tree decorations.  Select wrapping paper in colors that are complementary to your ornaments. If you have ornaments in different shades of blue, you can wrap your gifts in orange paper; or if you want something more opulent, use silver or gold. If you have a white tree, presents in bright wrapping paper will enliven the room.

Personalized Christmas Décor

Christmas is a time for family, so have your kids help you set up the perfect Christmas tree. Google easy DIY ornaments and have fun making Christmas tree decorations. For a more family-focused celebration, hang small, framed pictures of your loved ones on your slim tree.

Because of their narrow profile, several slim trees can be placed in your home for a truly festive Christmas. Balsam Hill’s Tannenbaum Evergreen Tree, for instance, can be purchased in sets of three. You can place one in your home office, one in the living room, and one in the foyer – the trees may be slim, but they will fill your home with an abundance of Christmas spirit.
