As someone with over 100 Christmas trees, I have learned a thing or two over the years about storage and the many nemeses of holiday decor. Number 1 on the list of this holiday-obsessed Texan: heat. Here are a few tips to help you plan storage now in the winter thinking ahead to the summer so your holiday decorations are in tip-top shape come next Christmas.

1. Keep Your Whites White

White trees and a hot attic do not mix. Same goes for white wreaths, linens and garlands. There is no storage bag strong enough to keep the summer heat from yellowing your Christmas whites.

We all have favorite holiday songs (and cringe at the occasional earworm!), but not every song is suited to every personality. Treetopia put together a festive quiz to help you determine which Christmas song best describes you. Take our short holiday quiz to see your results!

We knew the members of our Design Council 2015 could decorate a mean Christmas tree, but with their impeccable taste, eye for design, and out-of-the-box thinking, their Technicolor creations still left us in awe. We want to take this opportunity to thank each of our blogger partners for their participation, and show off some snapshots of their gorgeous Christmas trees in Technicolor.

They have impeccable taste, a keen eye for design, and the uncanny ability to decorate a mean Christmas tree—and they’re our Design Council 2015!

Decorating a Christmas tree in Technicolor takes creativity, an eye for detail, and some out-of-the-box thinking. We handpicked designers from all over the blogosphere to be members of this year’s Design Council, and challenged them to decorate a Christmas tree in non-traditional holiday colors—with stunning results! These bloggers represent the Treetopian mantra of marching to the beat of a different drummer boy, and we are thrilled to have each of them in Treetopia’s Design Council 2015: Christmas in Technicolor.
