Create a Color Theme

The garlands are hanging, the ornaments are sparkling, and now it's time for the final holiday touch: the Christmas tree! But wait… you're overwhelmed with how to make your tree look amazing. Choosing a color theme is one easy way to create a gorgeous look. Pick your favorite color and make it the hero of your tree. Whether it's a classic red, shimmery gold, or icy blue, choosing one color will make it look cohesive and stylish.

Check out your existing decor. Look at your home decor and choose a color scheme that complements it well. This will help to bring a cohesive look to your home during the holiday season. Think about the mood you want to create. The colors you choose for your tree can help set the mood for your home during the holidays. Consider whether you want a more traditional red and green color scheme, a more modern gold and silver scheme, or a mix of colors that add a playful or whimsical vibe. Look for inspiration and browse through magazines, Pinterest, or Land’s End Christmas decor for color schemes you like. You can also look to nature or your favorite holiday memories for ideas.

Don't be afraid to mix and match different colors and textures to create a unique color scheme. You can use neutral colors like white or black as a backdrop and add pops of color with ornaments and ribbons. Once you choose your color scheme, stick to it. Limit your ornaments and decorations to those colors to create a cohesive look that feels intentional and well-planned. Choosing a color theme for your Christmas tree is a fun and creative process. Don't be afraid to experiment and try something new. Have fun creating a beautiful and festive tree that brings joy to your home during the holiday season.

Hang Unique Ornaments

Looking to jazz up your Christmas tree? Go beyond the traditional ornaments and add playful pieces to your tree like bells, candy canes, or even a few handmade creations. Not only will it add a touch of uniqueness to your tree, but it’s also a great way to showcase your personality and creativity. Plus, it’s a fun activity to do with friends or family. Whether you’re going for a quirky, whimsical feel or a more polished look, there’s no wrong way to add some extra flair to your tree.

Don’t Forget the Lights

A tree without proper lighting is like a cake without icing. Don’t skimp on the lights: invest in quality ones that’ll make your tree shine from top to bottom. Trust us, it’s worth it. Whether you prefer traditional white lights or multi-colored ones that can be customized with an app, there’s something out there for everyone. Plus, good lighting sets the mood for cozy nights in with loved ones, and who doesn’t want that?

Add Bows & Ribbons

Getting into the holiday spirit is all about those special touches that make your home feel warm and inviting. When it comes to decorating your Christmas tree, adding bows and ribbons is a fantastic way to do just that. And don’t forget to choose a beautiful Christmas tree skirt. Not only does it add a pop of color and texture, but it also adds an extra dose of charm that will impress your guests. So, next time you're decking the halls, be sure to drape ribbons in different colors around the branches of your tree for a festive and personalized look that will have everyone feeling merry and bright.

Keep Things Balanced

Decorating the tree is the highlight of the holiday season. But have you ever taken a step back and realized that all of your ornaments are randomly placed, with no real sense of balance or symmetry? Fear not! By arranging your decorations evenly around the tree, you'll create a visually pleasing effect that will impress anyone who walks into your home. Plus, it'll make you feel like a pro decorator, and who doesn't love that feeling? Now it’s time to grab your Christmas pajamas, put on your favorite festive playlist, and get to decorating.

With the holidays just around the corner, you’ll want to ensure your beautiful Christmas tree is perfectly decorated. Start with a color theme, using one or two colors to coordinate your ornaments. Then add special touches like unique, playful ornaments and ribbons for an extra festive feel. Don’t forget to hang some lights to create a stunning twinkling effect that will brighten any room. Spread the decorations evenly so that everything looks balanced and aesthetically pleasing from all angles. And don’t forget to hang those personalized Christmas stockings by the chimney with care. With these simple tips from Lands' End, your Christmas tree decorations will be special this year.
