The most beloved symbol of Christmas is the tree, beautify it in a special manner.

There is a trend in anything nowadays, starting from clothes obviously to bags, make up and so on, so of course there must be a trend in the Christmas tree also. If you thought that decorating your tree in any kind is ok, designers will tell you that this is very wrong. Christmas tree trends differ from a year to another, sometimes mixing the trends in order the result to be fantastic.

Because Christmas is closer that we imagine and some people already started decorating their Christmas trees, we need to see what kind of decorations these Christmas trees prefer.

If you consider having a tall tree with a dominating presence, I recommend you to decorate it in 2 colours and what are the official colours of Christmas? White and Red of course. Decorating your tree in a combination of white and red will not only make the room brighter and jollier but the tree will also look elegant and fresh.

Remember that I once told you that more and more persons choose the minimalist interior style? Well if the room you choose to install the Christmas tree has this minimalist look, you should match the tree with the design and the result will surely amaze everyone. I would take into consideration a smaller tree and fancy it with glass transparency accessories, nothing too opulent or exaggerated.Make sure the gifts are also wrapped in white paper.

If you are a non conformist person who loves things done differently and you always trry to combine bright energy colours with the things you do, than your Christmas tree must reflect these visions in you for sure. Choose to decorate your Christmass tree in dozens of colours, sweets and candies and more than this, decorate it with hand made accessories. Take time to create your own personal accessories and the tree will be definitely an unique one. Your entire family will be proud of it.

For a room that reflects only elegance and fine style, the tree must do this too without any question. If you live in a more extravagant house with an expensive furniture and finishes, the accessories chosen for the tree must also be full of class and finece. A combination of white and golf reflects diplomacy, power and luxury. You could also spray the tree with fake snow for the real spirit of Christmas.

This year is also about combinations and strange mixtures that is why you should try beautifying your tree with red and pink accessories. It might sound odd but the final image will really make you feel that the room with the tree is the most beautiful one in the house. You need a more rich tree not too tall I would say.

If you are tired of all the classic decorations everybody uses this time of the year, you might want to think about some original Christmas decorations that will not only embellish the house and the tree, but they will also challenge your imagination and impress your guests. Have a look at the following suggestions and decide which ones will make their way into your home this winter!

Candy canes. Yes, they are really good, but you can also use them as decorations in your Christmas tree or in a vase. The effect will be unusual, but also beautiful.

Pinecones. Why buy expensive and kitsch decorations, when you can creatively use pinecones, which you can find almost anywhere? Use them to give a more natural air to your Christmas tree, to decorate the dinner table or simply your house.

Lighted willow branches. Either if you buy them or make them yourself, they can easily decorate any corner of your house and you will be happy knowing that you have original Christmas decorations around.

Gift pillows. Give a new air to your decorative pillows this winter by wrapping them in a colorful sweater and adding ribbons to them, just like you do with presents. They are really original and fun.

Kids’ toys. Whether you have children or not, you may use toys as decorations. Small Santa Clauses can really cheer up a room and bring about the spirit of the holidays. Their colors are great and they will totally be an effective way to make original Christmas decorations.

Fruit Decorations. You can buy them made of ceramic, or you can really dry fruits and hang them in your Christmas tree. An orange slice, for instance, will nicely decorate your tree but it will also leave a nice smell in the room.

Real logs. Yes, you can use real logs for decorating. Besides placing them in your fireplace, you can place a big log on your table. Also, sculpt it so that you can place candles in small places all over it.

Lantern filled with balls. Try filling a lantern with Christmas balls in one color or more. The effect is really nice and the effort is very little for original Christmas decorations.

Paper and clothespins. Use combinations of paper and clothespins to create round garlands to hang around. Paint them in a nice color and no one will notice what they’re made of.

Mirrors. Use mirrors to decorate the Christmas dinner table and place candles on them. The candle light will be reflected all around the table and the other colorful decorations will be highlighted better.

Nuts. Use nuts to shape a nice Christmas star. If you fix them into place, you can hang the stars on your front door for a really original Christmas decoration.

Wooden decorations. Wooden stars, for instance, are really interesting, especially if you choose a reddish or beige shade of wood. They are really elegant and bring an element of novelty in your Christmas tree. Add some glitter and you’re good to go!
