A Christmas tree is the centerpiece of holiday decorating. It's the focal point of the room and the spot where all the kids gather to check out their Christmas loot. Artificial trees come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from tall and narrow firs that easily slide into corners to robust pines that fill wide, open spaces. As you browse the selection of trees, look for one that fits in the room you have available. You also should consider how much time you want to spend setting up and decorating the tree. Pre-lit trees save you time since you skip the step of stinging the lights. If you like your trees with a light dusting of snow, consider a flocked tree that already has the embellishment added to the branches.
This gorgeous design aesthetic is inspired by the beauty of a wrapped gift sitting under the Christmas tree. Christmas wreaths are a beautiful centerpiece for any door design scheme. This look takes it to the next level by hanging a traditional Christmas stocking on the wreath. To create the appearance of a wrapped gift, string garland around the perimeter of your entryway. This homeowner accentuated the garland with colorful red bows, but you could also add ornaments, tinsel or string lights. Accentuate the look by adding some colorful red poinsettias, a staple of the Christmas season.
