ELEGANT TREE DECORATING WITH WEDDINGSTAR

Did you hear!? Santa Claus is coming to town, so it’s time to get that tree trimmed!

A flashy tree full of glitter and a plethora of keepsake ornaments is always a joy. However, sometimes less is more when it comes to decorating a Christmas tree. With Weddingstar’s line of gorgeous, heirloom-quality ornaments, you’ll see just how sophisticated a tree dressed top-to-trunk in simplicity can be. The key is choosing a neutral colour palette, and focusing on repeating understated decor pieces placed among the branches. Set against the crisp green and white, your stunning statement pieces will stand out as the stars of the show!

Here we’ve used white, ivory, and gold as our palette, on a classic green real-touch, pre-lit faux tree. Besides the tree, you can find nearly every piece seen here at Weddingstar, making it not only easy to decorate, but also to shop!

So don’t get your tinsel in a tangle – instead, get it all with Weddingstar!

My partner for this post, Weddingstar Inc. is a Canada-based wedding, gift, favour and lifestyle decor company. With an unparalleled range of both on-trend and classic products you’ll love, I’m confident they will soon become a go-to shop for you, as they are for me.

Here are our favourite Christmas ornaments to adorn a holiday tree with, along with some unexpected pieces that may surprise you…!

ORNAMENTS

Etched glass ornaments hung with a simple white ribbon are as delicate as they are impactful. As seen below, I have added an additional silk ribbon in a whimsical bow to take it’s prettiness up another notch (don’t worry, the ribbon is also featured down this list!).
