How To Choose A Christmas Tree
Christmas tree’s come in many styles and colors. Before you head out shopping, decide on a theme. This will help narrow down your ideas and save a lot of time when you’re blinded by all the new stuff this season. First choose your colors and then your textures, its the foundation of our Christmas plan. Textures are your accessories, for instance, are you feeling, wooden farmhouse decor or the soft furry decor vibes. After you’ve chosen your Christmas theme then ask yourself, will this theme look best on a white Christmas Tree or will it look better on a flocked Christmas tree. If you can’t decide, do a search online to get a visual of the Christmas trees available. Then, try to visualize your decorations on all the trees before making a decision. If you still can’t decide, always stick with the safest and go with a traditional tree. My advice is to choose a Christmas tree that will last for many years. The Christmas trees I find to be the most elegant are the basic flocked trees, classic green trees and the white trees. Be careful with white though, it’s tricky to make it look elegant if you’re inexperienced. Plus white trees tend to turn yellow if you don’t store them properly. Don’t forget to choose a tree with lights. White lights creates a more elegant look in the room. Here are some Christmas Trees I like with excellent reviews I’ve linked below.

Elegant Christmas Tree Decorating Ideas
Decorating an elegant Christmas tree all comes down to the ornaments and the garland. If you decorate a Christmas tree with a lot of colorful ornaments, your tree could appear too busy. Narrow down your choice of garland and ornaments. Keep it simple. Add your garland first so that it gives you a map of where you will need to place your ornaments. If you choose garland try to opt for fabric and or fabric ribbon instead, it looks way more elegant. Shiny tinsel has a tendency to look cheap, which works wonderfully for kids.

The last step to making your Christmas tree look more elegant is to add a beautiful Christmas tree skirt under the tree. You can use a faux fur rug or any elegant blanket. Be sure to place some bubble wrap underneath the skirt so that it looks fuller. Otherwise the skirt will lay flat and won’t look professional.
