With Christmas hardly a month away, most of us are already brainstorming fresh ways to decorate for the holiday.
When it comes to decorating your Christmas tree, you can't go wrong with traditional red and green, but who doesn't love a tree with a fresh and unique theme that sparks joy for the entire family? From Barbie pink and warm neutral to sparse minimalism, we've rounded up some of this year's most out-of-the-box Christmas tree trends and decorating ideas.
Flocked Christmas Tree
Flocked Christmas trees are not new, but this year, as the holidays approach, they are becoming increasingly popular. A snow-white Christmas tree, this year's biggest aesthetic statement, is not for the hesitant decorator, but when done right, it may look absolutely amazing. These eye-catching trees look best when they are adorned in a single color or even left bare; with a few silver bells in the shape of hearts.
Vintage Christmas Tree
This diverse vintage Christmas theme is sophisticated, elegant, and opulent; it's all about delicate colors, exquisite details, and plush materials. Choose decorations that feature elaborate pearls, beads, feathers, and diamonds. This will guarantee a refined, ageless appeal that is unquestionably beautiful. Adorn your tree with a gorgeous glittering pearl tree topper, pink and gold Christmas ornaments, antiqued baubles, and beautiful strings of lustrous pearls in a palette of soft gold, cream, and white.
Minimalistic Christmas Tree
This holiday season, the cozier Scandinavian "hygge" look is returning as a counterbalance to the outrageous maximalism of other Christmas tree fads. The Scandi motif has a more understated, neutral aesthetic. Textures like synthetic fur and natural flora are included, but the emphasis is on handmade details and simplicity. The Scandinavian motif also has a lot of cozy lighting, including fairy lights. Bare trees provide more room to display the different ornaments you've accumulated over the years because of their sparser foliage.
Tinsel Christmas Tree
Although tinsel is typically associated with the 1950s, its history goes far further back. The shiny silver material was initially used in Germany in the early 1600s to cover tree branches and capture the shimmering light of the actual candles that were used to decorate Christmas trees. The tinsel trends are fully back in popularity. Use it to add extra shine to your decor this year, whether you choose for a full tinsel tree or just add silver strands to your real tree. The tinsel tree evokes feelings of nostalgia and futurism simultaneously.
Ribbon Decorated Christmas Tree
Brightly colored ribbon set against a background of foliage has a really attractive appeal. Bows and ribbons are charming and sophisticated, and they work well as accent pieces for wreaths, garlands, and festive tablescapes in addition to making stunning tree ornaments. A simple DIY can transform an ordinary Christmas tree into a striking focal point. All you have to do is loop your ribbon around an embroidery hoop and set it atop your tree. There are a plethora of bow types available, ranging from opulent, thick velvet hanging bow decorations to creating your own using ideas for Christmas ribbons.
Red and Gold Christmas Tree
The ideal option for this style is a real tree or a very lifelike fake one. Use imitation clip-on candles to give the celebration a more classic glow and let the tree take center stage. Beautiful red poinsettia flowers combined with large red velvet bows can provide a sophisticated look. Fill your home with masses of natural greenery to counterbalance the red and gold. Examples of such greenery include wreaths on doors, mantelpieces, and stair banisters draped in garlands, and candle holders on tables and shelves adorned with pinecones, berries, and evergreen leaves.
Warm Neutral Christmas Tree
An all-neutral Christmas tree concept is a longstanding favorite. This style is usually a favorite as it's gorgeous, safe, and easy. Particularly when it comes to Christmas décor, sometimes less really is more. Stick to the traditional decorations in white, black, gold, glass, brown, and champagne if you're going for a neutral effect. Incorporate organic components such as berries, pine cones, or wooden decorations to add depth to your tree.
Pink Christmas Tree
Although pink Christmas décor has been increasingly popular recently due to the Barbiecore trend, expect to see a significant increase in its use in 2023. Instead of sticking with the same old decorations, try adding blush pink ornaments, wreaths, and ribbons. Pink offers a contemporary touch. Pink makes a playful and unique Christmas twist when paired with silver or gold.
Rainbow Christmas Tree
This Christmas, for a truly eye-catching display, consider arranging a rainbow-colored kaleidoscope of colors. Go all out with bold and vivid colors, or create a gradient effect with varying tones of your favorite shades. Bright and beautiful things are in right now—bright baubles, reusable neon wrapping paper for birthdays, glittering reindeer, and everything in between. To complete the look, add some twinkling fairy lights and a few shimmering ornaments for an extra touch of magic.
Candyland Christmas Tree
This whimsical Candyland tree can be the ideal Christmas tree motif for you if you enjoy candy. Candies can be hung from the trees. Place huge lollipops or tree picks in the shape of candies in the branches. If you really want to stick with the candy motif, you may even create some gingerbread home-shaped cookies or add some gingerbread house and cupcake ornaments. To complete the design, add some berry sprays, bright baubles, and twisted pipe cleaners.
