Christmas Tree Themes 2018!

As soon as the 2017 Christmas season was over, we went right to work with a mission of getting the most beautiful, trendy, unique tree themes we could find for 2018 Christmas! & what we have come up with is sure to blow you away! We have a total of 10 trees ranging from traditional, to vintage, to modern, to elegant, to fun! Each one has a specific color palette to match any personality!

Arctic Woodland 

Step into the magic of an outdoor winter wonderland with this Arctic Woodland Christmas tree theme! The color palette for this is majority red and white, with little pops of silver here and there to give it a sparkly, icy feel. To keep a very natural texture but also add a little something extra, we chose to use pick and sprays that feature red berries, pine cones, branches and pine needles! Each one is unique in its own way whether is dusted with snow or sprinkled with glitter! For a few fun touches, we have added in a snow flake spray, a snowball spray, and a white starburst spray! The ribbon used is a lovely stark white ribbon with “Merry Christmas” written out with shiny red sequins! When it comes to ornaments, we still wanted to keep up with the woodland them so we chose things like clip on red birds, stunning snowflakes, silvery icicles, red berry balls, metallic finials with snowflakes, and cloches with lighted winter scenes inside! The tree pictured shows a green tree, but we would recommend using a heavily flocked tree to really take it over the top!
