That way, you can decorate for both the 4th of July, and the incoming holiday season!

This week, we’re giving you tips and inspiration on how to decorate with our trees. Feel free to mix and match ideas as you see fit – after all, this is the land of the free and the home of the brave!

The Stars and Stripes Christmas Tree

For anyone looking for a tree to display this Independence Day, this would be the top choice. It comes with a rotating stand so you can showcase the medley of patriotic colors in all their glory. The striking patterns are tree decorations in their own right. To complete the ensemble, bring out the star-shaped ornaments and tree-topper you used last Christmas. Golden ornaments are ideal for contrast against the already bright red, white, and blue medley of colors. They also add a touch of elegance to your Independence Day-themed tree. An all-American tree for an all-American holiday—that’s the Treetopia Stars and Stripes Christmas tree.

  • You can go over the top if you wish by decorating the tree with little flags.
  • Combine gold and white star-shaped ornaments for variety.
  • You can use a combination of red, white, and blue baubles or paint over old ones.
  • Red, white, and blue striped ribbons can also be used as accents.
  • Kids will appreciate little Captain America shields as ornaments.

Candy Cane Christmas Tree

One of the most popular symbols of the holidays, the candy cane is easily recognizable, even from a distance. However, the Candy Cane Christmas tree is not exclusively for they Yuletide season! The bright, iridescent hues of this tree can also be used to represent the colors of the American flag. Not only that, its spiraling duotones provide a dynamic pattern sure to liven up any room in your home. To complete the trio of colors, add some bright blue baubles throughout the tree. They can be plain blue or patterned baubles; the important thing is that blue is the dominant color.

  • Paint blue baubles with little white stars for a perfect representation of the flag.
  • Use blue star-shaped ornaments.
  • Decorate the tree with a long, bright blue ribbon all throughout.
  • Top the tree with a mini-flag of the right size or several of them.
  • Decorate the tree with a people chain cut out from brightly colored paper to signify unity.

Combination of Red, White, and Blue Trees

They say two heads are better than one. At Treetopia, we believe that three trees are always better!  In this case, make them red, white and blue trees. You can decorate the trees with little flags and Independence Day ribbons or hang glittery star-shaped ornaments on the trees to complete the look.

Decorating tips:

  • For a unified look, you can wrap Independence Day ribbons around the three trees as one.
  • Trees need not be standing side by side; you can put one in each corner of a room, for example, with one main tree in the main corner.
  • Do not hang colored ornaments on a tree of the same color; instead, hang white or silver ornaments on the red tree, and so forth.

Moonlight White Christmas Tree

If you’re feeling extra creative, a basic white tree would work well as a blank canvass for your decorating ideas –  whether it’s a subdued theme or an over-the-top décor extravaganza.

With a white tree, you have free reign to do what you want. You can hang multicolored ornaments, use monochromatic baubles, or use a combination of both— all these would be compatible with the neutral tone of the white tree.
