When the holidays roll around, decorators all around the country dig into their attics, closets and storage units to pull out their best decorations for Christmas trees. Often the boxes of décor for the season are filled with memories, family heirlooms and time honored treasures. While decorations like these will never go out of style, there are times one many find themselves ready to update or add to their existing collection.
With the vast variety of décor available for the holidays, decorators may begin to wonder where they should start. When looking to expand on home décor, there is no better place to start than with the most popular decorations for Christmas trees.
Start with lights, which are the base for any great tree. If the lights in your collection are dingy or old, grab a new string with a fresh color to bring a brand new feel to other decorations that have been around for years. The same can be said for garland. If you’d like to keep the ornaments you have, as they’re representative of years of family Christmases, garland is a great way to completely change the look of a tree without compromising family memories.
If you are ready to start over with new ornaments, think of a unique theme or color scheme. Sports fans will go crazy for a baseball themed tree, while kids will love a tree centered around some of their favorite Christmas characters!
No matter what you choose to refresh the holiday tree with, the possibilities online are seemingly endless!
