Christmas Tree Themes & Trends: Ideas for your Christmas Decor
Every year I look forward to the annual Christmas Open House at Recreations. Not only is it a delightful way to spend an evening, I never fail to find inspiration with all of the beautiful holiday decor in this store. From luxurious ribbons and fabrics, to unique and unusual ornaments, Recreations has something for every taste and style. Theme Christmas trees are a unique way to showcase a special collection or hobby. You can be creative by decorating with a favorite theme that suits your home and the space your tree will occupy. There are limitless possibilities for themed trees. We are sharing a few of our favorites from Recreations to help you get ideas for your home.
This Equestrian horse Christmas tree uses a mix of fabrics, patterns and textures for masculine appeal. I can picture it in a paneled library next to a roaring fire. The burlap, brown jute ribbon and the stamped horse ribbon by D. Stevens provide statement worthy swag cascading down the tree. Just a few artfully placed pheasant feathers, bulbs and bark ornaments are needed to dress this tree.
Do you dare to be different! This colorful fantasy tree is not for the traditionalist. It features mesh ribbon, bright colors and bold ornaments that call to mind the Mad Hatter from Alice & Wonderland.
With musical notes, miniature violins and ribbon printed with a musical score, this music themed Christmas tree will have you singing carols all season long. Black accents break up all the white and keep it from looking monochromatic. This white “snowy” flocked tree would be eye-catching next to your baby grand piano.
Santa Claus is front and center on this Santa themed tree. The jolly old elf himself would love this traditional red and green color scheme with holly and berries as well as the carved ornaments with his likeness.
Autumnal colors make this Fall Christmas tree theme truly unique. I love the burnt orange ribbon and the metallic sparkle of the glass balls. The pheasant feathers add that unexpected touch.
My home is full of warm colors like olive green, terracotta, copper and brown. Traditional red and green would not complement the decor. Christmas decor need not compete with the decor of your home. Take note of the surrounding colors and themes and decorate your tree to suit the space. Be creative and think outside the box for ornamentation. Your favorite collection might just make eye-catching ornaments. Cast traditional red and green color schemes aside. Figure out your home’s personality and let your holiday decor suit your space.
