Last year’s “Themed Christmas Trees” blog ended up being a big hit, so we’ve decided to revisit the topic again this year. Decorating your tree (and your home) around a particular theme is a big trend these days, especially if you prefer a more uniform look for the holidays. Our home decor experts have put their heads together and come up with the top 5 Christmas tree themes for 2012. You can easily achieve any of these festive looks with some ornaments and other decor from your local Belk store, or online at belk.com.
Theme #1: Biltmore
Inspired by Biltmore’s legacy of classic elegance, the Biltmore themed tree is gorgeous and over-the-top with deep, dark, rich red, and gilded gold colors found in larger ornaments throughout. Angels, reindeer and birds are key icons.
Theme #2: Craft Christmas
Rich reds and greens, earth tones, creams and plaids create a very woodsy, natural, Christmas tree with rustic appeal, inspired by the Christmases of yesteryear. Felt, jute, sisal and feathers are key materials found in the ornaments for a homespun, handcrafted feel.
Theme #3: Merry & Bright
This theme makes for a more traditional tree, decorated in the classic colors of red and green, with ornaments like glass balls and whimsical stuffed characters for a merry and bright look.
Theme #4: Santa’s Workshop
The Santa’s Workshop theme is adorable and whimsical. The kids will love it! We incorporate stuffed elves, owls, monkeys, nutcraker dolls and other fun characters for a festive look that — along with the cookies and milk — will likely bring a smile to Santa’s face when he visits your home on Christmas Eve!
Theme #5: Sugar Plum
A fashionable look for the style-savvy home, this tree will shimmer with delight. Glittery ornaments in white, silver, gold and pale plum colors are reminiscent of a sparkling winter wonderland. Oversized globes and feathers put a modern twist on the classic Christmas tree.
