Let’s take a look at what you might find to infuse your home with a new look every year.

Choose a Color Scheme
Eye-catching trees begin with a plan. Once your lights are in place, your first decision is color scheme. Design experts say that to create a polished look, use monochromatic colors. White, silver and gold trees have a more elegant appearance while trees dressed in tan, gold and bronze will have a more relaxed but finished feel. If you choose to use red or purple or some other color, also include one shade up and one shade down of that color.

Add Something From Nature
Another important design feature will be the inclusion of something from nature. You may choose to use stems of artificial flocked greenery, icy-looking twigs, florals (such as silk magnolias) or stems of fake fruits. Create bunches by taking three stems and taping them together with floral tape. Use at least five to seven bunches on your tree. Start by placing bunches near the top of the tree, leaving room for your tree topper which will be added last. Sprinkle your bunches down the tree in alternating positions.



Dressing Your Tress with Garland
Next, it is time to wrap your tree with garland. Of course, your garland is one of the key pieces in setting your color scheme. You may choose to use wired ribbon or beaded garland but whichever you choose, don’t be shy. Be bold. You may even decide to twist two garlands together to create more interest. Drape the garland in a gentle spiral.



Designers say that using oversized globe ornaments is a must. Cascade medium- to larger-sized ornaments diagonally on the tree, snuggling them into the branches to achieve just the right look.

Smaller ornaments, in abundance, should grace the ends of your tree branches. You can create a themed tree by using ornaments with a similar idea. For example, you may choose to make a musical tree by hanging ornaments with various musical instruments. offers glass violins, trumpets and French horn ornaments along with a selection of ornaments featuring angels playing instruments.

Wine lovers might enjoy using the grapevine lights and then have fun decorating branches with their broad selection of wine bottle ornaments. Kid trees would look terrific with snowmen, ballerina, or animal ornaments. For a classic look, hang snowflakes – lots of them.

The Top of the Tree
The top of the tree can be crowned with two or three fabulous ribbon bows and several stems of feathers, achieving a completely unique look each and every time.
