Christmas Trees!

Finding and decorating the Christmas tree has always been a favourite holiday event for my family.  It's a big production - everyone piles into the truck and we make our way over to the Christmas tree lot to go through every single tree. We have to make sure we find the perfect one and we can't leave until everyone approves! After finding the winner, we have to get the tree back home without it falling off the top of the truck (minor details). Once we make it home, we turn on the Christmas music and we spend the evening decorating the tree! It's one of my favourite parts of Christmas and I look forward to it every year.

I've always loved decorating the Christmas tree, but now being a designer, it's one of my greatest joys of the holiday season. The Christmas tree sets the tone for the holidays, while beautiful ornaments and festive tree toppers allow you to make it your own and show your personal style. Whether you prefer real pine needles and strings of twinkle lights or a pre-lit faux tree, when the decorating is complete, it will never fail to spread the magical feeling of Christmas cheer throughout your home.

For those of you who are looking for ideas on how to decorate your Christmas tree this year, I want to share with you some pictures of Christmas trees that I find inspiring! Hopefully these will help you narrow down some ideas and help you plan your Christmas decor!

 

 The combination of gold & white with geometric ornaments on this tree is the perfect touch of modern!

 I LOVE a beautiful snow covered tree!!! This one is absolutely gorgeous! The touch of red throughout the tree creates a much loved classic look!

 Sometimes we need to remember that less is more. This simple Christmas tree by  Homey Oh My  is absolutely stunning!

 I love the gold, silver, and nature decor on this tree! All combined, they bring a  simple and rustic feel while the twinkle lights reflect beautifully off the metallic finishes!

 I have to be honest - I am not usually a fan of Christmas trees that are decorated in unconventional holiday colours. I find they can appear tacky and distasteful. But this tree decorated by  Christine Dovey  for Canadian Tire's 2016 Christmas campaign is absolutely beautiful and elegant.

 I love Christmas trees that have handcrafted elements. This red and white tree features handmade ornaments and garland that bring an awesome vintage feel to the decor!
