When it comes to decorating Christmas trees, I love trees that have a theme. We decorate 2 Christmas trees in our house. One is in the formal living room and is decorated in burgundy and gold ornaments. The other is a smaller tree in the family room, and it has colored lights and all of the "fun" homemade ornaments that my daughter's made as well as ornaments we've bought on vacations or special times in our lives. My daughter also has a pink miniature tree in her room that was originally covered in Disney Princess ornaments.
There are an endless number of themes that you can design your tree around and you can find great sales on ornaments right after Christmas. You could do a color combination or fun themes such as Santa's Workshop, Victorian, Tropical, Country, etc...
Here are some pictures of some gorgeous trees that have a theme:
This one is so sweet-it's a Baby's First Christmas tree.
This tree has a White Christmas theme.
Here is a beautiful, traditional tree decorated in red and gold with some Victorian carolers at the base.
Here is a cozy, homespun Christmas tree with plaid ribbon and natural elements like pine cones and birch bark hearts.
How does your family decorate your trees, do you have a theme or is it a mixture of all the ornaments you've collected over the years. I love those trees, too, they have a unique story to tell. I love seeing how other people decorate their trees, so if you have a picture of your tree on your blog, send me a link to your post and I'll add it here!
