December Magic: Christmas Tree Decorations

Friday, 21 December 2012

Christmas is approaching really quickly and I guess we are probably all at the stage of decorating the tree by now! The tradition of setting up a Christmas tree stems from 16th century Germany. Originally decorated with apples, nuts or dates, towards the 18th century candles were starting to be added to the tree and later  with the discovery of electricity, the traditional Christmas lights were also added. Nowadays there is such a wide variety of color palettes you can use to decorate your tree - from the heartwarming golden tones or the traditional red and green to frosty silver and regal blue. I prefer the warmer tones of gold or red for my tree, as I feel that they resonate with the serene and happy atmosphere in a home during this holiday. Here are some beautiful examples of Christmas tree decorations and interior design:

If your tired of decorating the traditional Christmas tree, here are some witty ideas for an alternative one. Either made of sticks, duct tape, wood or simply decorations on a wall, they all look very festive:

How do you decorate the Christmas tree - the traditional red and green style, or the more modern white tree? Have you ever tried making an alternative Christmas tree or do you always go for the real thing? I would love to try some of these alternative designs, but maybe for next year, this year I already bought my beautiful tree and it's waiting to be decorated this weekend!

Oooh, I wish we had a Christmas tree :( My parents aren't into Christmas sadly enough, but I love these photos, so cosy!

These are absolutely beautiful. I love the hanging snowmen ornaments and the wood tree wall. Lovely post. :)

Thanks for your wonderfully thoughtful comment...these decoration inspirations are so pretty, reminds me of holiday movies, we don't have much festive atmosphere here right now being summer. I loved the third tree and that very pretty tree in a glass bulb ornament

I lack so much about this christmas spirit! Hahha give me the food, the family, the champagne, who cares about decorations!

I love all these trees! My tree doesn't really have a theme--I just keep putting whatever kinds of ornaments I can find and love on it! I love the tree in the clear glass globe and wonder how hard a DIY would be lol!? MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

What a great post - so many wonderful trees. I love the pink one and the bauble containing the cute tree is so original. I have one traditional tree and one modern one this year - hoping to post some photos in the next couple of days! Merry Christmas and a very Happy new Year too.
