How to Brighten Up Your Holiday Display with Tree Classics

Christmas is a season of lights, colors and sounds. Now that the holidays are just around the corner, households are turning to holiday displays to create a brilliant atmosphere that will inspire the season’s festivities. In this post, Tree Classics features some ideas for brightening up your home and welcoming the Yuletide spirit with the gentle luminescence of Christmas lights.

Christmas light strings

Christmas lights are indispensable especially in months leading to Christmas and New Year. They create an energizing ambiance that rouses cheer and excitement in everyone. Because of the popularity of these lights, homeowners have come up with a lot of ideas to put them up uniquely.

Christmas lights are commonly seen as a complement to other holiday decorations. But more than an ornament, these lights can actually turn into a light fixture!

This homemade chandelier is a brilliant way to combine a holiday decorating purpose with the everyday function of a light fixture. To create this wonderful showpiece, wrap your Tree Classics’ Christmas lights all over a metal chandelier frame. Hang your new Christmas lights chandelier and enjoy its radiance as it lends your home a unique touch and a festive glow.

Pre-lit wreaths

Christmas wreaths are most commonly seen on the front door, and over the fireplace mantle. Because most of them come pre-lit, they are often placed to give rooms a lovely and inviting glow.

If you want to display a wreath in a space that’s away from an electrical outlet, a battery-operated wreath makes an excellent choice. The Grand Fir Christmas Wreath from Tree Classics not only boasts of lush and layered foliage, it also gives off a heartwarming radiance with its battery-powered LED lights. Its timer feature makes it easy for you to hang it anywhere you want and have it turned off automatically at a certain time.

To enhance the glow of your pre-lit artificial wreath, try hanging it over a mirror or any other glossy surface that can reflect your wreath’s luminosity.

Another unique way to display your pre-lit wreaths is to turn them into a hanging Christmas tree. First, stack the wreaths according to their sizes, with the small wreaths placed on top of the big ones. Next, tie the wreaths together using a ribbon, leaving a space between each one to allow the ribbon to be seen. Finally, display your unique Christmas tree by hanging it from a ceiling hook, or secure it to a sturdy chandelier or pendant light fixture. You can also use a single wreath for this project, as long as it is dazzling and exceptional on its own.

Pre-lit garlands

Christmas garlands make stunning decorations on any space, and when pre-strung with Christmas lights, they become even more enchanting as holiday accents.

Garlands are a must-have for homes with staircases. They highlight the beautiful angles and lines that add interest and draw attention your home’s design. Whether you stretch them along the handrails, or let them drape, pre-lit garlands are a gorgeous accent for your interiors.

Show your guests the way to your home by highlighting doorways with pre-lit Christmas garlands.

Autumn Table Settings for Your Dinner Party

Table Settings for a Fall Dinner Party

Autumn is here, and it’s evident through the cool breeze and the wonderful colors in the trees. For most, this season is one of the busiest in the year, what with the fall dinners to prepare and the coming holiday rush that brings with it a joyful list of chores. A fall dinner party need not be stressful, however, and these simple fall table settings will help give you get a headstart on your fall preparations.

The Farmhouse

If you’re hesitant to bid the summer farewell, keep the fall leaves at a minimum and focus on a harvest theme that comes with brighter colors reminiscent of the summer. For a centerpiece that symbolizes abundance, arrange clusters of wheat in a clear glass or silver container. To dress up the container, use a small wreath underneath it. For the individual plates, use silver napkin holders to go with the silverware. Add some pumpkin-scented votives to the centerpiece and you have an ideal table setting to help you transition from summer to autumn. If you want to add some fun to dinner, you can add a small scarecrow to the centerpiece and use plates that go with the theme, such as those with farm animals or a farmhouse design. A burlap runner also adds to the country charm, especially when combined with place mats in the shape and color of leaves.

The Woodlands

Most fall décor themes feature pumpkins in some way, and this table setting is no exception. Select pumpkins with neutral tones and use them as big, bold centerpieces; then use the smaller variety as candy bowls to add some accents. The main element of this table setting are the dried twigs and branches, which give it an earthy feel. Wrap the pumpkin centerpieces in them and use matching table linen to complete the look.

To add a modern touch to this rustic mix, place some dried twigs and branches in a clear glass vase or container and place a candle in the center. Add this to the pumpkin centerpieces for some warmth. If you decide to do away with the pumpkins, pinecones are an excellent alternative because they add to the table ambiance and work as a prelude to the holiday season.

The White Autumn

Color plays a major role in many fall décor themes, but the absence of the bright thematic colors will give your table setting an air of mystery and anticipation. For the centerpiece, use white pillar candles and small white pumpkins or gourds of varying sizes. Crystal tableware will tie up the white elements with the silverware. You can also do away with the conventional tablecloth and use several linen table runners placed crosswise on the table for an elegant but laidback look.

Give the monochromatic table setting a touch of autumn by placing a fall leaf and some dried twigs on each individual plate or tying them with white ribbon on the table napkin. Adding natural elements will elevate a simple table setting to a grand display of the season’s beauty.

Make sure that you incorporate elements of nature into your décor every season, whether as accents or as a focal point. These small touches will act as the fulcrum of any seasonal décor theme, unifying other design elements into a cohesive—and stunning—whole.

Deck the Walls: Unique Décor Ideas for your Wall

The walls of a home are blank canvases that homeowners can use to elevate their homes. The typical amateur designer paints it with a fresh coat of paint, or embellishes it with framed photographs or artworks. Those are classic ideas that never go out of fashion. However, if you want to set your home apart, you might want to try something different. Courtesy of the Tree Classics blog, here are several delightfully unique décor inspirations perfect for your wall.

Framed photographs and artworks can make for a great focal point, but if you add a series of images in different sizes, you can create a collage of delightful visuals that are sure to highlight your passions and fascinations. Try these out for white walls and for rooms that have a simple décor scheme to make it unique and captivating.

Stencils are another wonderful way to add character to your home. Using these décor ideas allows homeowners to add a dash of their personality to their spaces. Try a winter stencil decoration to bring in the beauty of the snow season to your home. Pair these with wood and other white fixtures to complete your theme and to produce a more charming effect.

Maps are another classic addition to walls. For something unique, you can try placing a fragmented map composed of varying pieces to your living room wall. This decorating idea adds a contemporary spin to a timeless décor.

Another wonderful idea is to bring the beauty and wonders of nature into your home. Preserved and painted tree stumps installed on the wall can create a distinctive look that gives your space a rustic charm. This is an excellent idea for homes that use wood as its dominant material.

If you’re not a big fan of trees or plants, try hanging some images of animal life on your walls. Animal shapes created from cut paper and laminated for extra protection can add some much needed life to your walls.

For something stylish, try your hand at decorating the wall above your mantel with umbrellas. Not only does it add color to your wall, but it also brings the distinct charm of a novelty item to your space.

Give your home a unique appeal by trying out these wall décor inspirations! Stay tuned to Tree Classics for more attractive design ideas for your home.

How to Display Your Family Photos Elegantly

Photographs capture special moments in time. For families, they can serve as reminders of an important milestone during special events and holidays. While most of us typically just place photos in albums or tables, these precious images can also be used as unique and uplifting décor accents. By creating a sophisticated display using photographs, you can fill your space with both warmth and nostalgia. Courtesy of Tree Classics, here are a couple of décor inspirations you can immediately use for your home.

 

An empty white wall is always a great canvas for a photograph display. Encase your photographs in minimalist frames and arrange them in the order you prefer. You can display them chronologically or even at random. The important thing to remember is the entire display should be symmetrical. This creates a clean and refined look that’s simply pleasant to look at.

 

The wall beside a staircase is also an ideal space for your photographs. These spots are mostly left vacant, so putting framed pictures in that area can add a special classiness to your home. Add a couple of pictures near the steps and family members will feel like they’re taking a journey while they tread up and down the stairs.

 

The area near the stairs is also a great location for your photographs, since it provides the same effect of the previous decorating concept. For this section, try to mix it up a bit. Different positions create an interesting but still delightful effect. Adding a few mirrors can provide a nice contrast, creating a theme that’s charming to look at while still being heartwarming.

 

The dining room is another wonderful location, since this is where the family gathers and spends time together especially during holidays. Having them surrounded by their most cherished memories is nothing short of perfect. Pick out a frame that complements well with your table and dining room table. If you have wood and hardwood floors, get a frame with a dark border to create an interesting contrast.

 

If you have no space in your home or if you prefer something fancy and jolly, you can always wait for the holidays and just hang those lovely photos on your Christmas trees. Placing photos of past Christmases in small frames and tying them to your branches can create a look that’s both dazzling and uplifting.

Create a sophisticated and charming home filled with memories using your family photographs! Stay tuned to Tree Classics’ for more décor inspirations for your precious home.
