How to Decorate Your Christmas Tree with 2017 Trends

16th November 2017

A dose of Christmas Tree inspiration

We all know that the Christmas tree is the centrepiece of the family home during the festive season. Decorating it is one of the most exciting events of the calendar! But what theme will you go for? Tree decorations are one of the most festive items to hit the shops, after advent calendars. So now it's time to decide how you're going to adorn your fabulous Christmas tree! Here are four lovely themes that are easy to achieve and will make your Christmas super stylish.

Woodlands charm

A woodlands charm themed Christmas tree is really in keeping with the whole Danish Hygge trend. If you want to be really fashionable this December, sticking to a Scandinavian style is the way to go! A snow-flocked tree is perfect for this theme but you could also customise a plain, green tree using white spray paint from any DIY store. Adding in soft details such as scattered pine cones can really bring your home woodland to life. You could even collect the pine cones outside so it really won't break the bank. Use soft white or yellow fairy lights to brighten your tree and keep baubles a neutral colour such as brown, gold or white.

Traditional beauty

Keeping Christmas traditional is nothing to be ashamed of. If you're not into modern trends and like to be classic - you'll love this theme. You can even put your own personal twist on it! Drape gold and red beads around the tree along with fairy lights in the standard white colour. Red, green and gold glittery baubles are always a hit. For extra details, try hanging small candles, gingerbread men or chocolate coins on the branches. If you're being really traditional, why not place a beautiful angel or gold star on the top of the tree?

Ice queen

For the perfect icy Christmas tree, inspired by the Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe, you should be opting for a silver, white and blue colour scheme. A snow-flocked or white tree is perfect for this, along with white lights and a collection of baubles to match the colour theme. Glass baubles also add a really nice touch. Hang fake icicles and snowflake decorations around the tree if you want to be really festive. You could even scatter fake snow around the base of the tree - that's if you don't have furry friends who may come along and mess it up!

Kitsch retro

For your kitschy Christmas tree, take inspiration from the radical colours of the 60s through to the 80s. Adorn your tree with multicoloured fairy lights, jewel-toned baubles and miniature disco balls. The tackier the better! There really is no limit to which colours you could go for! However, pinks, blues, yellows and greens tend to be the most popular. Tinsel is a good idea, too. The great thing about this theme is you can collect decorations from your loft, charity shops and family's old junk. Nothing has to match! Don't forget the tacky tree skirt, of course...
