Christmas 2012 saw the emergence of bold new trends in decorating the classic Christmas tree. Playful colors blended well with the most extraordinary of ornaments: starfishes, feathers, and family photos. These five creative Christmas tree trends shaped the past season and are bound to inspire you yet again.

Inspiration #1: The Rainbow

Highlight your white Christmas tree with loud colors. Break the rules by selecting not only two complementing hues for your overall look but an entire rainbow of it. Layer your ornaments by putting Christmas balls of the same color together to reflect a spectrum of hues. This creates a cascading of colors that is harmonious and not heavy on the eyes.
