Although the decoration of classic Christmas trees, is based on many striking colors, with many brightness and lights, we can also see in recent years other decoration trends that guide the style of these trees to the same style of decoration as our home.

There are some advantages and others, let’s call them, disadvantages of each of these two aspects of Christmas tree decoration. In the first, full of color and ornaments, ornate and flashy style, may be the ideal option for those who have children at home, because for them it is much more fun and we can also take the decoration of the Christmas tree as an activity for do all in a family.

However, a disadvantage of opting for a decoration of that style is that we will take longer to put and remove the Christmas tree and, in addition, will not fit too well with the decoration of the rest of the house, providing a bit of vulgarity, although a more welcoming and classic way.

On the other hand, if we choose to make a decoration more simple and sober, we also have some advantages and disadvantages that we have to take into account to know the positive and negative of this type of decoration of Christmas trees.

One of the best things about simple decoration is that it takes less time to assemble and disassemble the Christmas tree every year, which saves us a lot of time. We also make the Christmas tree does not stand out as much among the decoration of the home, so aesthetically it is more flattering for our house.

Another good thing is that, if we use few decorations to put together the decoration of the Christmas tree, we can change them more easily when we tire of the colors we have used and we will not spend so much money.

On the other hand, this type of Christmas tree decoration is usually more boring for children who want to fill everything with color. So if you have children at home, the best thing is that you opt for another type of more casual and fun style so that they can fully enjoy these holidays, as they are the protagonists.

Another thing that we also have to take into account when decorating our Christmas tree is that not all have to have the same shape, be the same color, have the same lights or be the same size. Depending on the needs of your home, you can choose a Christmas tree format or another.

Just as we must, first, decide whether we will have a natural Christmas tree or an artificial Christmas tree. Both types of Christmas trees also greatly influence the decoration of Christmas trees.

If we have a natural Christmas tree, we can opt for a decoration more linked to nature. For example, in recent years it has become very fashionable to decorate natural Christmas trees with flowers and bouquets in the form of Christmas balls and Christmas stars.

A very important element of the decoration of Christmas trees is the lights. The lights give a different touch to our Christmas tree and make it much more striking and festive. Keep reading to discover the best tips about Christmas lights.

The first thing we have to decide is whether we want the lights to be more discreet or to capture all the attention of the Christmas tree. Depending on this, we will have to choose larger or smaller Christmas lights for decorating Christmas trees.

Modern Christmas Tree

We must also opt for lights of various colors or lights that only have a color like yellow or orange light. We can even find Christmas lights of colors like red or blue. Keep in mind that many of these lights that we buy have several positions when turned on and in many there is the option of normal light (yellow) and the different colors.

Modern Christmas Tree

To place the lights in the decoration of Christmas trees, it is necessary that we place the tree near an outlet that we have at home. Therefore, first we recommend you measure the cable that connects them and check that it reaches the current perfectly; because moving the tree with all the ornaments is heavier and some can be broken.

Modern Christmas Tree

After having mounted the tree (or simply bring it home if it is natural) the first step should be to place the lights. The reason is that these should be the element placed more inwards of the branches, close to the trunk so that from a distance you can see the light they emit but not the shape.

Modern Christmas Tree

Although this is only when we buy the classic lights with small bulb format since its shape is not too pretty and it is better to cover it leaving only the light that is projected exposed. However, now we can find all kinds of lights, with different and very nice shapes that serve as decoration. Some very original are those that have a snowflake format.

Modern Christmas Tree

After placing the lights, we can place the rest of the Christmas tree decoration elements. Remember that you should not always have the lights on because of the energy they produce, as well as some risks that exist if they get too hot, especially if we are talking about a Christmas tree.

Modern Christmas Tree

We recommend that you turn on the lights only during important moments of the holidays, such as Christmas dinners. Also, buy ones that have a saving mode position. This consists of an intermittent flashing of the lights, which consume less and do not heat the bulb so much.

Modern Christmas Tree

Another of the classic products of Christmas tree decoration is the Christmas stars. These do not stop being curious in the Christmas trees because their supposed meaning is of Christian origin, this being the star that guided the Magi from the east towards the Bethlehem portal where the baby Jesus was born.

Modern Christmas Tree

We say that it is still curious because the Christmas tree is a pagan tradition that comes from the Greeks, then the Celts and later the English. In ancient cultures, fir branches were used to ward off evil spirits, nothing to do with the Christian origin of the Christmas stars.

Modern Christmas Tree

However, it is now very common to use Christmas stars on Christmas trees. We can place them all over the tree as a hanging ornament or we can also place a large star on the top.

Modern Christmas Tree

Perhaps, of the two decorations that we propose to you, the most Christian and that makes the most reference to Christmas Day as the birth of the baby Jesus, is that of placing the star on the cusp; because it best represents how the star guided the Magi.

Modern Christmas Tree

Another of the most demanded options in terms of Christmas stars, for the decoration of Christmas trees, are those three-dimensional. If you want to learn to make yourself three-dimensional stars for the Christmas tree.

Next, let’s see some examples of tree decoration. You can get ideas to decorate simple Christmas trees, with more ornaments, one color, two-color and all the styles you can imagine. Take out your notebook and take notes!

Modern Christmas Tree

For example, in the photo that we see above, it is a perfect idea for a children’s room and children will love it. The key to decorating children’s trees is to use a lot of colors and make it smaller than the classics so that they can decorate it themselves and place it wherever they like.

Modern Christmas Tree

We can also opt for more elegant and sophisticated Christmas trees, which bring a Christmas air to our house but do not clash too much with our decoration. If you like this idea more, all we have to do is decorate everything in the same color, with decorations that are not too big.

Modern Christmas Tree

If you do not want to spend too much money on buying an artificial or natural Christmas tree, you can also resort to recycling some things that you have at home or that you can find without spending money. For example, the tree you see in the photo above is made entirely of dry branches.

This decoration of Christmas trees that we see in the photo below represents very well the Christmas spirit to use the color red (color protagonist of Christmas) and the white imitating the snowy Christmas tree. In addition, it is the classic Christmas tree decoration of the shopping centers on these dates.

Modern Christmas Tree

If you like the classic style of decorating Christmas trees, you can imitate one like this tree. The key is to choose two or three colors that we like or combine with the decoration of our home and buy all the ornaments in those colors. The more ornaments the tree carries, the more the classic we see in the movies will look like.

Modern Christmas Tree

But if you prefer a more modern idea and you’re tired of traditional Christmas trees or want to change the style of your home during those days, you can get a tree like these: a bright and different color. To get away from the classic, buy ornaments in colors that are as typical of Christmas as pink or turquoise.

Modern Christmas Tree

A color that combines in any tree and that cannot be missing in the decoration of Christmas trees, is the golden. For a simple decoration, buy a traditional green tree and place some Christmas balls in gold. If you choose different shades of gold, it will give the tree more movement and it will look better.

Modern Christmas Tree

As for the decorations that you are going to choose for the decoration of Christmas trees, I recommend you take a look at this we see in the photo below. These are not typical ornaments, but have different shapes (heart, diamond, angel …) and make the Christmas tree more colorful and modern. Bet on new proposals!

The ties are also very important at Christmas and we see them on all sides: decorations, gifts, table settings, etc; that’s why I could not miss Christmas tree decoration. The classic Christmas bows are red, but you can also put them in gold or silver and they will look just as nice.

Modern Christmas Tree

This decoration of Christmas trees is also especially beautiful. The color silver highlights a lot on the dark green of fir and reminds us of the cold of Christmas, in winter. It is also very simple and refined.

Modern Christmas Tree

Although this decoration of Christmas trees is a bit risky and very different from what we are used to seeing, it can be a good idea for a small tree in the kitchen or even set a restaurant or dinner at home. To make it really beautiful, choose classic utensils. To make some classic utensils, you only have to dye some normal brown ones and scrape them, a little bit, with a scouring pad to give it a worn effect.

Modern Christmas Tree

Finally, we wanted to remind you that if you choose a natural Christmas tree, you have to bear in mind that its branches are not as resistant as plastic, so the decoration of natural Christmas trees is usually based on lightweight ornaments.

Once we have seen a few decorated Christmas trees, we give you a few tips to decorate your Christmas tree to perfection.

The Decoration of White Christmas Trees

Colors in the Decoration of Christmas Trees

Modern Christmas Tree

Before Christmas comes, we have proposals to decorate your Christmas tree. If this year you want to decorate the tree in a different way sure you find an idea here. It takes a lot of silver and white colors as if it were snowflakes on the tree, but many trees are also decorated with bluish tones.

Pendants, stars, balls of this color are a trend so that you can start buying them. This type of trees looks great in living rooms or spaces decorated with a style that is modern, or even the minimalist that is currently being worn.

Modern Christmas Tree

On the other hand, they take a lot of trees that are very “homemade”. Trees that have a marked retro character so that we can choose shades such as brown or other, mixed with gold and metallic finishes chrome, aluminum, silver add light and are fashionable in Christmas decoration.

Modern Christmas Tree

From white and silver to bright colors. The color purple, purple, mauve, combined with ornaments in white or silver, are also trend. The color is perhaps the great novelty of this year as far as tree decoration is concerned and it can be great if at home we have a modern decoration or even a minimalist decoration.

Modern Christmas Tree

In the photo above you have a tree decorated differently using purple, yellow, blue and white colors. The decoration complements a Christmas wreath where ribbons of the same colors as the tree have been used. It also carries in addition, the decoration of the Christmas tree in pink, magenta and yellow tones. The Christmas tree as the central element, the lamp and the table is decorated in the same tones.

Modern Christmas Tree

In the tree we can place, for example, ornaments of red flowers imitating those of the Poinsettia. In the lamp a pretty chain type necklace in pink with ornaments of the same color. The rustic wooden table full of flowers in pink and red.

Modern Christmas Tree

Sometimes we do not decide and suddenly we want a tree that represents a traditional Christmas and at the same time a modern one. You can get both options if you opt for colors that are basic but at the same time the latest trend such as white, red and gold. That is why we now choose the ornaments and shades in red, which can not miss in your Christmas. By the way, all the decoration you see in this image above belongs to the new Christmas decoration of Zara Home.

Ornaments and Garlands in the Decoration of Christmas Trees

Modern Christmas Tree

Apart from the color, we can not ignore the ornaments that will hang from our Christmas tree. Ornaments that we can buy or that we can make ourselves as this beautiful pigeon ornament made in felt.

Modern Christmas Tree

Nor can we forget the stars that crown the Christmas trees that we will see in detail later.  Or place for example some pretty pineapples like the ones in the photo. Natural colors, green, red and brown that create a decoration with a rustic touch while remaining elegant.

Modern Christmas Tree

You can also bet on ornaments that are usually traditional as we have seen the pineapples and how we are going to see the balls now, but you can also choose others that are more original. For example, we have pendants that represent all kinds of shapes that have to do with Christmas and among these, we can highlight the ones you see above, again by Leroy Merlin, do not you think they look pretty?

Modern Christmas Tree

How about hearts? They are also fashionable for the decoration of Christmas trees so that you do not forget them and bet on those that are rustic, like this one in wood for example.

Modern Christmas Tree

If you like the original decoration, a “snowy” Christmas tree, if you have a minimalist room in black and white or gray colors, it can be beautiful and with hardly any ornaments. Next to the white tree another photo of a classic Christmas tree but decorated with white and silver ornaments that combine with the rest of the decoration in neutral colors. On the other hand, the traditional balls to which we want to dedicate a special section cannot be missing in the decoration of our Christmas tree.

I do not want to forget the garlands  (or tinsel) as they are always essential in any Christmas tree. Of course, it seems that they do not get so much, although if you want to place some it is better than you choose those that appear in shades like silver.

Stars to the Crown in the Decoration of Christmas Trees

Modern Christmas Tree

We also want to talk to you in a special way about the stars that crown the trees. Not all are equal and within these, we can also find trends that fit what is currently being worn. In this way, we can choose for example a star in a golden or bright tone and that will allow you to crown in a successful way a tree that is more classic like the aforementioned.

Modern Christmas Tree

If you prefer a snowy tradition, you can choose a star in a white color, perhaps with some golden detail, or perhaps even transparent. With a star like the one you see above, your Christmas tree will stand out like never before.

Modern Christmas Tree

For those who opt for a decoration that is something more original or modern, nothing like stars in bright colors and even with prints like polka dots.
