Christmas Tree Decorations

There are so many styles of Christmas tree decorations, that it’s almost impossible to define. One of my favorite services we offer is our holiday decorating service, and I really enjoy seeing our client’s Christmas tree decorations. Sometimes they want us to purchase new decorations for them, and we have to do a little research about their style and how they envision their space feeling when their Christmas tree is decorated.

What is your holiday decorating style?

This image below, is a traditional style Christmas. You’ll see the majority of color is red + green, and is accented with gold. The Christmas tree decorations are bulbs with ribbons. All that is missing would be pearl or cranberry garland to really fall into a traditional style. Oh, and velvet bows. Those are totally traditional.

Next, I like to call an “elegant” style Christmas. It’s a little less traditional, but not so over the top that it makes guests uncomfortable. This style will include more metallic colors, or solid colored trees that are not your typical red + green. Typical decor would include feathers, florals in metallic finishes, ribbon or mesh (or both), and picks that are adorned in anything that sparkles.

Finally, there is a Christmas tree style I refer to as “Rustic Christmas”. It’s a little more country-ish and home-made than the two styles above. It’s shabby chic for the holidays.
