Design Guide: Tips for Trimming Your Christmas Tree

Christmas Decor Theme by ConfettiStyle


When to put up your Christmas tree has become a big debate these days.  Some people (like me) put their tree up early to savor every single bit of the holiday season.  And on the other side of the fence there are people (like my brother) that wait until Thanksgiving to put up their tree.  I can appreciate both viewpoints but the one thing I do know is that anyone that puts up a Christmas tree wants it to look great.

I’ve been decorating trees professionally for years, first at my home decor store and then as part of my design business for clients. Over the years I’ve learned a lot about the art of decorating  Christmas trees. My latest Design Guide, Tips for Decorating Your Christmas Tree shares my tree decorating secrets so you can decorate your Christmas tree like a pro.

Christmas Decorating Ideas For Those Of You Who Haven’t Started Decorating Yet

Charlie Brown Tree

I know several people who haven’t gotten into the holiday spirit yet or are just beginning to decorate their homes for Christmas so this post is for them (and for you if you haven’t started decorating yet).

Decorating for Christmas doesn’t have to be a labor intensive job (I keep telling myself less is more).  There are lots of easy ways to decorate your home in a flash and have it look like you’ve spent hours making it merry.

Merry and Bright Holiday Home Tour–Part 1

Christmas 2015-10

Hello everyone!   Today is the first day of the Merry & Bright Holiday Home Tour that I’m participating in.  I want to give a big virtual hug and shout out to Kellie from Design Asylum  who spearheaded the idea for this tour and created our fabulous graphic.

Now on to the tour! If you are coming from Marsha’s home at M. Jones Style, welcome! Wasn’t Marsha’s decor just beautiful. 

 I’m super excited to reveal my tree and front door decor with you today and even more Christmas decor over the next two weeks.

Way back in August I shared my Christmas decor theme with you. The theme for my tree was built on a foundation of red ornaments with accents of white and personal touches like picture frames and monogrammed ornaments.  I also wanted to add in a few touches of animal print to keep the look interesting.

Despite a few deviations from the original plan, I love the way my tree turned out.  I decorated it with a mix of red ornaments, red glitter ball garland (an easy DIY that I’ll share on Friday), red and white tinsel filled ornaments (which I shared yesterday) and assorted white ceramic ornaments.  A big red star tops off the tree.

So there the first glimpse of my holiday decor. I hope you enjoyed it.

The Merry & Bright Holiday Home Tour will be back next Wed., Dec. 9th where we’ll be sharing our entertaining spaces and how we celebrate the season.

The next stop on the tour is Kellie from Design Asylum.  Kellie is the maven behind the amazing paint line Velvet Finishes so you can only imagine the creativity that went into her tree decor…wow!

And be sure to follow the rest of the Merry & Bright Holiday Home crew and see how they are decorating and celebrating the season. And follow our hashtag #merryandbrightholidayhome  on social media for lots more holiday inspiration!
