Whether fresh cut and brought directly from the outdoors or artificial, yet stunning, and pre-lit, the holiday season’s most iconic centerpiece is not complete without the perfect decorations for Christmas trees. Every home and decorator is unique in styling. Some prefer bright and colorful while others would rather have more traditional color schemes. Some have themes that change yearly while others are looking for décor that will last for years. No matter what style one would like to achieve, choosing a few great items from the most popular categories of décor will surely bring cheer and spirit to the holidays!
The base of all holiday trees is the lighting! For any un-lit tree, there is a wide selection available of lights to choose from. Battery operated lights allow for a table top tree to be placed anywhere without needing a nearby outlet. LED lights are perfect for a bright, twinkling tree of any color. Indoor Christmas lights come in varying sizes to accommodate any size tree. Available in clear, single color or multi-color, string lights are classic yet beautiful. In addition, unique lights are perfect for a themed tree. For instance, football shaped lights are ideal for the sports fan!
From the rare and unique to the traditional and timeless, ornaments are atop the list of most popular decorations for Christmas trees. Ball ornaments, typically made of glass but also available in plastic, are the most classic go-to option. Available in many colors and styles, ball ornaments are simple yet stunning, though decorators are not limited to traditional ball ornaments. Over the years, the industry has evolved to offer a near limitless amount of shapes, sizes and colors in the realm of ornaments. For example, ornaments such as angels or crosses bring a spiritual feel to the tree. Unique and fun plastic ornaments such as favorite popular characters or themes truly make every tree one of a kind.
Garland, whether lit or un-lit, can offer a special something to the tree. Realistic looking pine garland in evergreen or snow white offers a natural charm, perfect for traditionalists. Whereas brightly colored foil, fur or feather garlands bring a fun whimsy feeling to the tree. Garland decorations for Christmas trees come in a wide variety of sizes and colors, meaning the decorator can mix and match garlands to create their dream tree.
Bows & Picks
Presents are not the only things that look better with a bow! Bow decorations for Christmas trees are a unique and festive way to add cheer to the tree as well. Available in satin, velvet and other fabrics, bows can be large or small, thick or thin. For a more natural look, picks made of artificial pine, pinecones, berries and mistletoe are the ideal addition for those last-minute finishing touches on the tree.
