A Christmas tree that’s decorated with a variety of ornaments, colorful shimmery lights and some baubles in a perfectly coordinated scheme. Now if you are a perfectionist whose Christmas tree is the center of attention during the festive season, then we have got you covered to make it the most special and Chrismas-ified than ever.
Read a carefully curated list of tips on how to set up a Christmas tree step by step.
Get A Premium Quality Christmas Tree, Artificial Or Real
Invest in a Christmas tree that is of the highest quality. Trees that are made of the premium quality materials will not only last longer, they will be sturdy enough to hold on decorations in a reliable manner. If you are investing in a real tree, go to a local farm and get a tree that’s greener. Look for Balsam firs, Virginia Pine or Fraser fresh trees and if you aren’t decorating the Christmas right away, cover the stump with damp cloth so it remains fresh.
Go For A Theme While Decorating The Christmas Tree
Yup decorating a Christmas tree is extremely fun but do you know picking up a theme will amp up your Christmas tree to a top-notch level. You can even create a retro or fusion by traditionally setting it up with baubles and lights and merging it with a theme of your choice. Really sky’s the limit. From candy cane theme to Techni color to blush coast, from nature theme to nutcracker, choose the theme of your liking and make your Christmas tree worth remembering.
Start Your Decoration With Lights
The first and foremost step in setting up a Christmas tree is to string the lights. Because if you decorate the baubles and the garlands, it is going to be extremely difficult to string the light along the tree branches. Depending on the location, colored lights look extremely beautiful in small casual settings while light is great for formal rooms. One tip is to divide the tree into sections and then string the light wearing your gloves because of the needle-like leaves. Use LED lights instead of normal ones if you are environmentally conscious and do not forget to switch off all the lights when going to sleep every night.
Spruce Up Your Christmas Tree By Adding Ornaments
Depending on the theme you have chosen, jazz up your Christmas tree some more by adding ornaments like garlands, baubles, laces, ribbons as well as floral picks. The most famous and commonly used top ups are stars and angels, but the overall look will be more cohesive if a theme is followed to the T.
The traditional baubles now come in so many sizes, shapes, designs as well as finishes so one should incorporate some traditional baubles with new ones to give an overall beautiful look. The best tip for setting up your Christmas tree is to add heavy ornaments and hang them in lower branches or higher near the trunk so that they have extra cushion to not fall.
Select An Appropriate Tree Topper
Want to decorate your tree that looks professional? Jazz up your Christmas tree with an eye-catching tree topper. An apt tree topper will complement the overall look for the Christmas tree. The only thing that should be kept in mind is to choose a tree topper that compliments the height of the tree as well as the height of the ceiling.
