Your Christmas tree is the focal point of your holiday décor. Choosing a theme and how to decorate your tree is a lot of fun and you have so many options.
If you don’t have a tree yet, don’t worry, we’ve outlined our top 10 artificial Christmas trees here. We are big fans of pre-lit trees because you don’t have to worry about tangling lights. Also, with the pre-lit trees, if a bulb goes out, it doesn’t make all the bulbs go out like with regular Christmas lights. And for those of you asking "do pre lit Christmas trees last?" - YES! They do. Artificial trees are very economical as they are easy to maintain & convenient to store at home.

To get your creative juices flowing, we’ve outlined 7 unique ways to decorate your tree.
Theme #1: Neutral Christmas Tree
Stick to whites and golds for a really classy look that matches any décor. Keep it neutral with white ball ornaments and choose a pre-lit tree with white lights. To take your Christmas tree decorations to the next level, consider adding wooden star ornaments and/or pinecones to add some flair but keep it at neutral tones.
Theme #2: Rustic Christmas Tree
A rustic Christmas tree will add a cozy cabin vibe to your décor. A rustic Christmas tree theme should remind you of being in the woods. Stick with traditional red bows and disperse a lot of pinecones in the branches. The best part of a rustic Christmas tree is hanging woodland creature ornaments on the pretty branches.
Theme #3: Candy Cane Tree
Christmas time means candy canes! Deck your tree out in reds and whites. Opt for pretty red and white ribbons and/or garland. Add some classic red and white ball ornaments. And of course, hang candy canes from the branches. A candy cane Christmas tree is beautiful and festive.
Theme #4: Floral Christmas Tree
As the name implies, deck your tree out with faux flowers. Place a ton of flowers in your choice of colors in the branches of your Christmas tree. Get one of the pre-lit trees that we mentioned earlier in this post so that messy Christmas light cords don’t ruin the elegance of your floral Christmas tree. Lastly, you can round out the look with pastel ball ornaments.
Theme #5: Beach Themed Christmas Tree
Do you have sand in your shoes? A beach themed Christmas tree may be the perfect fit for you. Decorate it with sea shell and starfish ornaments. This beachy Christmas tree will shine and is a really unique way to decorate for Christmas. If you’re really feeling the beach theme, then add some dolphin and/or lighthouse ornaments as well.
Theme #6: Photo Christmas Tree
This one is our favorite! The holidays are about reminiscing about old memories and creating new memories. Decorating a tree with family photos is classy and sentimental. Print out the photos you want to use in black and white or sepia tone. Glue the photos on brown card stock, punch a hole in the top, string ribbon through the hole and hang them on your tree. Add some basic ball ornaments in gold or silver but keep the photos as the main focus of the tree.
Theme #7: Snowy Tree
Layer cotton all over the branches of your tree. Using a pre-lit Christmas tree, you can put the cotton over the lights and the light will shine through nicely. If you want to take it a step further, you can sprinkle white glitter on the cotton to make your tree sparkle like a blanket of snow in the sunlight. Complete the look with snowflake ornaments and consider silver and gold ornaments to round out the look.
