Decorating your Christmas tree from a former interior decorator Books / Home Life / Suddenly Single

Hi Everyone:

Today’s blog is just for fun. Since many folks will start decorating their tree in the coming weeks, I wanted to jump in with ideas for making your tree look superb.

First, don’t decorate your tree like the stores do theirs. Keep in mind that they want to sell ornaments (or trees or both) and they will therefore put the ornaments on the outside limbs of the tree.

For a more detailed look that is absolutely super, hang your decorations on each limb, starting near the tree’s trunk. Work your way out on each limb, hanging more than one decoration on each limb. I find that the trunk is a great place to hang dear ol’ Aunt Gertie’s favorite ball that you somehow ended up with and any less-than-perfect decorations that you hate to throw away.

By placing ornaments in a variety of depths, you will create a whole new masterpiece that will catch the light (especially if, like me, you like sparkly ornaments) and offer a lot more to see than a bunch of ornaments hung on the outside limbs.

Stay tuned for more Christmas decorating ideas as the season draws near!
