What’s your Christmas tree decorating style? Is it colored lights and handmade ornaments or white lights with color coordinated ornaments? The options are endless, but no matter what your personal style is, the Christmas tree is a gathering place and a focal point for your home during the holidays.
As an added bonus, trimming your tree early can increase happiness and since we care about your overall health and well being, we wanted to share a few ideas for decorating your tree.
The colors of Christmas are red and green so it’s natural to gravitate toward those colors when decorating your own tree. This combo is traditional, they compliment each other, and they’re pleasing to the eye. If you’d like to try something different this year, switch up your color scheme and play with warm and cool tones. You can try out blue and gold, violet and gold, blue and orange, or find your own personal favorite combination.
For a different look, try out a monochromatic color scheme. It can add a beautiful and modern flair to your Christmas decor. Decorating with a monochromatic color means working with one color in various shades. Varieties that look particularly festive include shades of blue with white, gold and white or an all silver and gray tree.
