Christmas is almost here, and we need to find ornaments to use on our tree. There are several advantages to selecting a real Christmas tree, beyond their fragrant appeal. First and foremost, evergreens are 100 percent biodegradable and once the season is over, can be recycled for a variety of purposes benefiting wildlife and nature in general. Across the United States, there are more than 35 different species of evergreens grown for their Christmas appeal.
When decorating Christmas trees, start from the basics, which include: hanging the lights, stringing the garland and adding the finishing touches with pretty ornaments. There are different types of tree lights which are safe and pose no threat. Rechargeable LED lights make our trees glow throughout this festive season. For decorating your trees, use shiny baubles. Glass ball ornaments add a designer touch to any tree and work whether you want a classic or contemporary tree. Add some jingle bells to your tree to get the sounds of the season. Mix in silver ornaments and winter berries for a classic Christmas tree theme. Another idea is bringing out the color. Even if you don’t embrace color in your everyday decorating, Christmas is the one time a year you can go overboard with color.
Choose a favorite animal as your Christmas tree theme. You may want to have snowy owls, squirrels or other types of birds hidden among the branches. For the truly patriotic, deck out your tree in America’s hues: red, white and blue. Make sure you match your decor. Whether your house is traditional or contemporary, find a tree and ornaments that fit into your design.
No matter the ideas you have gotten from us for your Christmas tree decoration, make sure you have something of your own you want to add. After all, Christmas is all about family time so make a theme of your own, get your kids and spouse and decorate your tree together.
