Christmas Trees 6 Ways!

We've got the decorations, and the trees! Check out these six clever schemes--one is sure to suit your style. We love the entire ritual of decorating the Christmas tree (the treasure-like ornaments, the tangled lights, the spiked mugs of hot chocolate) but are always on the lookout for fresh ideas to create new traditions. Try these:
CLASSIC: Recall kid-friendly Christmases of yesteryear with a tree blanketed in old-fashioned, wood ornaments: rocking horses, Santas, snowmen, sleds, snowflakes, even teddy bears.
Family Memory: Highlighting the importance of family, this graphic tree (a beautiful, pre-lit, flocked version) is anchored by hand-cut silhouettes of family members--even the dog! Small wood frames feature everyone's initials.
Garland: Nothing could be easier to decorate, or deconstruct, than a tree wrapped entirely in garlands. Chunky, knitted garland is the base for felted rings, metallic berries, and very merry bells.
Mod: Lovers of modern style will appreciate this pre-lit, hot pink tree decked out in white and sparkle. Glitter ball ornaments mix with plain Styrofoam balls; matte white balls mix with silver bells.
Opulent: A jewel-tone palette sets the tone for this lavish tree. The inspiration: a collection of Faberge-style egg ornaments in a variety of colors and designs. And nothing says formally festive like glitter, jewels, and pearls.
Woodland: A charming trio of petite trees, nestled into baskets and set atop raw burlap. This mini thicket is adorned with birds, owls, pinecones, and a variety of mushrooms. For sparkle, icicles & mercury glass ornaments do the trick.
