Sharing the beautiful Christmas tree decorating ideas that are inspiring our own Christmas tree decor this year.
It just wouldn’t be Christmas without a Christmas tree to curl up next to, warm with glowing lights and dripping with beautiful decorations. It’s the quintessential symbol of Christmas and because of that, I think it holds more nostalgia and memories than most of our other holiday decor. Whether it’s the nostalgia of memories that flood us, and the stories that follow as we pull out our ornaments to decorate the tree for another year, or the coziness of curling up next to its shimmering glow all season long, our Christmas tree will always hold a special place in our home and heart.
For the past few years now, we’ve actually been decorating two trees in our home – one a little more polished & intentionally planned out (pictured below) and one much more random & nostalgic, filled with all of our most special ornaments and completely under the guidance of the bossiest decorator of all (it’s NOT me, I promise!).
Carson’s not the only one that enjoys flexing his tree decorating muscles though – I love planning out our tree each year. While we’ve used the same collection of ornaments for several years now, it’s fun to change things up with different tree toppers, ribbons and garlands. Looking back at our Christmas trees past, it’s amazing to see how easy it is to create a whole different look with just a few small and relatively inexpensive changes. Last week, I shared some of my favourite tree toppers, skirts and ornament sets, so if you’re on the hunt to change things up a bit this year too, you’ll definitely want to check that out. You can also see some of my favourite tree garlands linked up here too (I think that’s the only thing I’m sure about changing up this year!).
This year, I’ve been thinking on a few different ideas that I’d love to try and, like the rest of my life since moving into this new house, I just can’t seem to make up my mind about things (it truly is the story of my life lately). Should I make a few subtle changes with a new garland and a whole lot more tinsel? Or, should I change things up completely with some vintage inspired coloured lights and maybe just hang all of our silver toned ornaments, of course adding some tinsel over it all too? Ooooor, I could go all out with some new colourful, vintage inspired ornaments too! What do you think?
I went in search of all the Christmas tree decorating ideas I could find this year, hoping to help make my own ideas more clear. Instead, there was just SO much beautiful tree decorating inspiration, I found myself wanting to create all the trees! Ha! In any event, these Christmas tree decorating ideas were just too good not share. I have no doubt you’ll find as much inspiration in these lovely Christmas trees as I did!
