Designer Christmas Tree Tips

There was a time when I was the floral/display designer at a large craft store. When October rolled around, it was my job to decorate all the trees, not to mention various vignettes and other displays. We could easily have twenty or more trees, depending upon how many lines of ornaments the buyers had purchased.
I’ve been decorating my own trees the same way since then. From 1997 to 2007 or so, and I’ve just gotten used to doing it that way.
Color. Texture. Dimension. Pattern. This is why I add fabrics to my trees.
To get the full instructions on how to anchor and drape fabric, stop by my blog that has loads of tips.
Floral decorations can be anything from poinsettias to glittered leaves to some magnolia branches if you’re lucky enough to have some in your yard.
There are a couple of ways to add floral decorations. You can insert each stem individually or you can wire them into a cluster. Or you can do both!
Get all of the tips for adding fabric, ribbon, florals and more in my blog post.
Themed trees are definitely not everyone's style. And that's fine.
Decorating and trimming your tree is about tradition, enjoying the beauty of the season and counting the blessings you have.
I wrote this post for people who've asked for a "designer" look. I hope you find some tips helpful. And if you have tips of your own to share, please do so in the Comments!
Merry Christmas!
