This Christmas, go for something fun and unique with a TV show-themed holiday décor. Dress up your tree with these charming attention-grabbers.

Doctor Who

Have a wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey Christmas with “Doctor Who”-inspired holiday décor. Doctor Who’s police box  time machine, which he calls the TARDIS, looks fabulous as a tree topper on a white tree with navy blue trimmings.

If you prefer to use a traditional evergreen, hand-painted glass ornaments of the TARDIS and the Daleks (the Doctor’s foes) work just perfectly!

If you’re in the market for a new artificial Christmas tree, you may be a bit overwhelmed by the dizzying range of shapes, sizes, and colors you can choose from. The most basic decision you probably need to make is whether to buy a traditional green tree or a contemporary colored one. Let’s break down and check out the advantages of each one.

Green Trees

A familiar appearance

It’s probably safe to say that most of us grew up with traditional Christmas trees, such as the Treetopia Oh Christmas Tree.

Our fond memories of the mountain of gifts under our green tree are ones we’ll cherish forever. It is precisely this feeling of nostalgia and comfort that makes a green tree so irresistible. Plus, knowing that we’re keeping a time-honored tradition alive makes our heart swell with pride.

Highly realistic foliage

Most of today’s artificial Christmas trees are made from polyvinyl chloride plastic or PVC. An artificial tree usually has flat, stiff PVC needles, which can limit the tree’s realism. However, a number of manufacturers now offer trees made of polyethylene or PE. This type of tree is incredibly realistic, mimicking the color, shape, and texture of a live tree with amazing accuracy. Currently, the majority of PE trees are available only in natural green shades to further enhance realism.

Treetopia is proud to share with you the graceful holiday designs of Laura Trevey from Bright Bold & Beautiful.

 

In her blog post, “Tis The Season To Be Jolly,” Laura relates to her readers how she created an elegantly classic holiday look in her home with Treetopia’s Balsam Spruce Christmas tree and a Biltmore Pine Wreath and Garland. With a scattering of red, yellow, and blue ornaments, Laura gave her tree a beautiful, back-to-basics look that proves that less is definitely more. By suspending the wreath over the mantel and draping the garland over the bookcases, she maintained the naturally light, bright, and cheery ambiance of her living room.

The Christmas tree is the centerpiece of your holiday home, but deciding how to decorate it can be a challenge. Be inspired by these design ideas and give your Christmas tree the stylish and festive look you’ve always wanted.

1. Traditional Look

When it comes to Christmas tree decorating, traditional red-and-green is a classic look that will never go out of style. For a great back-to-basics look, start with a lush green Christmas tree with a full silhouette, such as the Treetopia Alexander Fir Christmas Tree. This tree is available pre-lit with clear lights, which spares you the trouble of having to install your own lights.

Decorate it with an eclectic mix of ornaments using a predominantly red-and-white color palette. Make sure to choose glass ball ornaments in solid colors, and use iconic holiday décor staples like Santa, candy canes, snowflakes, and stockings. Sprigs of winterberries, clip-on poinsettias, and red-and-gold ribbons add texture to your tree, making it look warmer and more inviting.

One look at the surrounding scenery and you can tell that fall is Mother Nature’s fashion show. Trees, leaves, and entire landscapes flaunt a dazzling palette of red, orange, yellow, and brown. Capture the glory of the season and liven up your home with an artificial tree that reflects fall’s kaleidoscope of colors. Treetopia’s line of orange and brown trees packs a powerful visual punch that elevates your home design to new and exciting heights.

1. Fall Theme: Green and Brown on Orange

Follow through with the fall look by decorating your orange tree with items and colors from nature. According to basic color theory, orange and green are analogous colors, meaning they share a common primary color, which, in this case, is yellow. This bold combination projects a youthful energy that suits your daring and spirited design style.
