Kathy and I are all about “Theming for a Lifestyle” to simplify and focus your Christmas decorating. Just in case you missed this post “Show Me Top 4 Reasons to Theme My Christmas Tree”….part 1. We have 3 additional new themes to share with you from the Show Me Decorating by Vickerman Showrooms in Atlanta and Dallas. We hope you are inspired by one theme and create a new Christmas tree!
Gold, silver, bronze, copper, pewter and platinum melt into a noble metallic mix fit for a king. Add sparkle to your tree with luminous shades of metallic finishes. The shimmering gold and silver florals, brushed matte pewter balls melded with antique copper and rustic bronze finials offer an added dimension of elegance on the Show Me Decorating Metal Mix Christmas Tree Theme.
Christmas Sparkle Christmas tree theme takes traditional red and green, adds sparkle with accents of silver and touches of gold. Pop this tradition with a playful mix of black and white patterns, checks, chevron and polka dots. Rich red poinsettia with red roses and lime green glitter sprays adds a fresh touch. Lime green adds a punch of color to celebrate Christmas with a new twist on tradition.
The Peppermint Twist Christmas tree theme will make you as jolly as Old St. Nick! The traditional colors of red and white take a twist. Mix checks, dancing polka dots with red velvet, and candy ribbon for a crowd pleasing collection that’s as sweet as a peppermint.
We believe there are 4 steps to creating your Christmas Theme or Color Story.
1. Select the room or location where you will place your largest Christmas decoration the Christmas Tree and decide on main ingredients or a color story that fits that room, home décor or favorite collection.
Theme ideas include Gingerbread for a kitchen or breakfast nook, Western or Woodsy Lodge for den, man’s study or office. Dressy Red and Gold or Gold and Crystal for a dining room or entryway. Peacock inspired for a bedroom or living room. Your space and home décor colors will help determine. A favorite collection of ornaments or family heirlooms needs to be considered.
The choices are only limited by your imagination and creativity!
2. Choose your ribbon next. One or more ribbons can be combined to make your bows. Follow “How to Tie your bow” section on the Show Me Decorating app to complete your bows.
3. Select shatterproof balls in 3 sizes to add depth, background and balance to your color story or theme.
4. Add in your coordinating florals for added dimension and interest on your tree.
Now your are set to mix in your favorite ornament collection and enjoy the Holiday’s decorated in style and you did it yourself! Save time and money by choosing a theme or color story for your Christmas tree and Christmas decorating all through your home.
