Elegant Tree Decorations

Elegent Christmas tree decorations by Jennifer Maune

I’m not sure I could get away with a room this nice in my home! 

My kids would wreak havoc the minute after everything was decorated.

Isn’t it gorgeous though?! 

Jennifer has created the picture perfect space to celebrate Christmas. 

The monochromatic color scheme is so enticing and calming.

I’ll be dreaming of a space like this in the years to come.

Elegent Christmas tree decorations in red and white by Jennifer Maune

Would you believe this is the same tree?

Jennifer made some subtle changes to her tree in 2020 by adding in a little pop of red with these berries. 

The Christmas tree is still every bit as elegant and gorgeous yet the look is completely different with the added pop of color.

This is a great example to show how you can switch up the decor without the need of buying a lot of new ornaments!

Favorite Things Christmas Tree them by Christina at the diy mommy

Isn’t this tree simply stunning? 

In an effort to evoke nostalgic feelings during 2020, Christina was inspired by one of her all time favorite movies The Sound of Music.

Her girls helped decorate this beautiful tree around the theme of their favorite song from the movie “My Favorite Things”. 

This tree even boasts of “blue satin sashes and warm woolen mittens”.

Such a clever idea and a gorgeous tree!

Decorative ribbons can also be loosely tucked into the tree.

Simple and simply beautiful.

Meg admits that she saw this ribbon wrapped around a tree in her local home decor shop and it “just got to me” so she ran right over and grabbed a spool.

And since it’s not too Christmas-y she’s excited to use it for other projects in the future as well!

Going with traditional holiday colors and soft textures she has created a warm and cozy space in her basement. 

cozy handmade ornament keepsakes

My Mom and I also opted to go with traditional colors in my parents home last year in efforts to create a warm and nostalgic Christmas.

We even made Christmas ornament keepsakes with old family photos from Christmases past. 

When you see how easy they are to make, you may want some for your own tree.

Rebecca is a girl after our own hearts!

She loves to transform others junk with paint and fabric while bringing new life to vintage finds.

The vintage teacups have to be my favorite element on this tree!

Blue flocked Christmas tree by Michelle at our crafty mom

Now, I can honestly say that I’ve never seen a blue tree before!

After the crazy year we all had in 2020 Michelle knew she wanted to go with something fun and colorful.

So she stepped out of her comfort zone and went with a blue flocked Christmas tree.

By sticking with a monochromatic color scheme and adding blue and white ornaments she was able to create a calm cozy Christmas tree.

Coastal christmas tree decorations

Last up on our list of Christmas tree decoration ideas is my coastal inspired tree.

My Mom and I had fun creating many of these ornaments ourselves. 

Naturally I love each element as I’m drawn to all things coastal!

However my kids beg to differ!

They’re not afraid to express their opinions!

Apparently boats and life preservers don’t make the right kind of ornaments.

What do you think? 

Did I go overboard with my ornaments or do you think they work?
