Beautifully Decorated Christmas tree

As the main attraction, the Christmas tree is the most exciting and important piece of decor during the holiday. Nothing makes Christmas without a tree, however, decorating a tree can be a daunting task.

Decorating a tree can feel overwhelming because every section of the tree needs to be covered. With any design project, it’s important to take a step back and create a colour scheme. The popular colour to use is definitely red and green, however, there are other options available including 

  1. Blue and white
  2. White and Gold
  3. White and Silver (Grey)

So how do you incorporate these colours into your tree? Well, through ribbons, ornaments, beads and tinsel. 

Lighting is what gives the Christmas tree the wow factor. If you have ever stepped into a lighting store, you are aware of the wide variety of options. There are nine types of bulb styles, they include specialty, polka dot, globe, G12, Mini, C3, C6, C7, and C9. Additionally, there are four types of lighting style which are LED, Incandescent, Icicle, and Net. Here is an infographic that explains them in more detail.
