Treetopia New Year v.12-29-2014

Discover the many wonderful ways to make your Christmas tree look as gorgeous as can be with Treetopia’s Design Council 2014. We’ve asked some of the country’s best design bloggers to decorate their favorite Treetopia Christmas tree and we hope the results will inspire you to create a fabulous holiday masterpiece of your own.

When choosing stylish children’s fashion and toys to promote, tada! shop owner and chief style officer Lizelle Green is usually guided by what she thinks her own kids would enjoy wearing or using. So, when it came to decorating her Treetopia Basics – Purple Tree, finding inspiration was as easy as viewing a popular children’s fantasy movie.

White Christmas trees have a natural elegance that makes them look right at home with almost any decorating style. To celebrate the enchanting beauty of these snow-inspired trees, we’ve asked the help of some of our favorite bloggers.

Each blogger in our Treetopia White Tree Mystery campaign received a Treetopia white Christmas tree of their choice to dress up any way they wished. The decorated trees were then featured in each blogger’s respective site, along with a fun contest for loyal blog fans. Some eagle-eyed readers who correctly identified the featured artificial Christmas tree became lucky winners of a $100 Treetopia Gift Card!

Here are some of the gorgeous white trees decorated by our talented blogger friends. Please note that some of contests are still on-going, so we can only reveal the Treetopia trees from concluded contests.

Your Christmas table setting doesn’t have to be elaborate or traditional to be elegant. Set a contemporary tablescape for a sophisticated holiday scene that’s simple yet strikingly stylish. Check out our Christmas table decorating ideas for some sparkling inspiration.

Pick a Pretty Palette

Instead of the classic Christmas combination of red and green, get creative with bold, vivid colors. Whether you love electric purple, robin egg blue, or Crayola orange, decorating with an unconventional palette adds extra excitement to your holiday table.

Layering various shades of the same color is a great way to achieve a rich, well-defined look. Replicate this pink-hued setting by placing a pink runner on a black table top or over a black tablecloth. Build up the theme with color-coordinated dinner candles and napkins, and mixing in pink salad plates with fine white china. Clear stemware and glass candle holders, along with small silver table accents, help enhance the impact of colorful pieces.

For a mod and minimalist look, go with black and white plates, silver cutlery, and white candles. Spice things up with napkins and paper-craft accents with graphic patterns. Neon yellow soup bowls or goblets bring a festive pop of color and flair to this monochromatic scheme.

Select a Sensational Centerpiece

As we’ve mentioned before, centerpieces are essential to a beautiful tablescape but are sometimes the last item on many holiday to-do lists. Instead of a lavish traditional centerpiece, opt for one that’s fun and easy to make.

Play around with scale and space to create a dramatic centerpiece, like the one shown in the image above. First, set colored candles in varying heights on a mirrored or metallic table runner. Then, use varying lengths of nylon fishing line to hang polished ball ornaments from the chandelier.
