Should your christmas tree have a theme?

Decorate the Christmas tree

I like my life as easygoing as possible. When I can cut corners, I do. So when it comes to decorating my Christmas tree I take the easy approach.

The Slap 'n Dash way to decorating your Christmas tree

I just kinda throw the Christmas ornaments in there. Don't get me wrong though. I do have standards. Like, I make sure the ornaments are nicely spread out across the whole tree. I don't want the backside of the tree to feel left out.

Got Christmas cards? Just throw them in your Christmas tree

Christmas trees make a very handy spot for Christmas cards. Though in this digital day and age I don't get as many Christmas cards as I used to, but if I do I just throw them in my Christmas tree.

Themes for your Christmas tree

However, I know there are others out there who go through great lenghts to decorate their Christmas tree. And I applaud them. I greatly admire their trees. Possible themes for Christmas trees are:

  1. A colour theme. Like purple, gold or silver
  2. Classic, you know the kind of tree your grandma used to have.
  3. Modern
  4. Alternative
  5. Trendy
  6. Creative, like a Christmas tree made of books or balloons! Yes that's a thing!
  7. Children's crafts tree: a tree filled with stuff your kids made. Like guirlandes made from macaroni.
  8. Minimalist
  9. Edible tree, think candy canes and chocolate christmas decorations
  10. Upside down: there are people who like to hang their Christmas tree upside down. Don't ask me why, 'cause I don't know either. But it sure is different.

Summing up

Decorating your Christmas tree can be great fun. But it can also be a big worry: should you go with purple decorations? Or would it be better to go with red? Decisions, decisions....
For me it's easy. Life is hard enough as it is. So I'm definitely nót gonna worry about my Christmas tree. In the grand scheme of things I don't think it's all that important.

So to answer my own question: 'Should your Christmas tree have a theme?' No, it doesn't have to. Unless it makes you happy. Then by all means, knock yourself out!

  1. We used to have two Christmas trees, one upstairs with a theme (the 'fancy' tree) and one downstairs without at theme (the 'family' tree). Now I just decorate the tree in the same colours as the room it is in - with some allowance for sentimental ornaments! Thank you for sharing, and for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Hope you are having a great weekend!
