What Christmas Tree Style Do You Like?

There are so many options for decorating a Christmas Tree, and I love them all. So today, I’m sharing several different styles to help you choose which type you want for 2023.

Today, I’m breaking down the different styles and giving you some great examples of each.

Let’s get started.

Neutral Christmas Tree Ideas

First, let’s look at the neutral Christmas Tree Idea.

Neutral packages under the trees are usually wrapped in brown or white craft paper.

A few years ago, I decorated the flocked tree with gold and silver, plus added woodland-themed ornaments for our loft Christmas tree.

My husband and I made the DIY tree container stand as a replica of our vintage grape hod that we use for our downstairs tree each Christmas.

My favorite Christmas decor always has a vintage feel. So it’s no surprise that I love to decorate my Christmas Tree with a vintage vibe.

My most pinned image on Pinterest is this tree decorated with nothing but vintage shiny brites.

Red and White Trees with a Vintage Vibe

When I think of Christmas, red is the first color that comes to mind. Therefore, I use a lot of red during the holidays.

The frosted Christmas Tree is filled with vintage red shiny brite ornaments, and the branches are laden with frosted red berries.

In keeping with the red and white theme, the packages are wrapped in red craft paper with white bows.
