holiday tree trim: winter wonderland

my friends, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. the decorations, the feasting, the music… it just fills my heart up with joy and leaves my head spinning with how much christmas i can stuff into my apartment. my biggest focus right now is decorating my tree. it’s become a tradition (well it’s only our second year but still counts!) that my boyfriend and friends visit a tree farm and chop down our own christmas tree. it’s so much fun to walk across the farm and meticulously scan each tree for the perfect height to plumpness ratio. i absolutely love having a live tree, i mean the smell alone gives you the coziest feeling!

in anticipation of our christmas tree coming i’ve been scouring the internet looking for ornaments and decorating ideas and the more i look the more i want to stick to a theme for my tree – and there’s so many different directions to go! so if you’re like me and searching for a decorating direction i’m compiling some roundups for holiday tree trim ideas.

my first one is winter wonderland! although i haven’t experienced snow yet this year (and believe me, i’m okay with that) i can’t deny the magic of a snow covered earth and how pretty the sparkling ice crystals are when they land on your mitten.

there are a few key ingredients to creating a winter wonderland tree:

  • silver and glitter! it’s pretty obvious but essential for that sparkling snowfall effect
  • layer in a little texture. feathers are a great way to do this. the fluffy whiteness gives an illusion to blankets of snow. cotton fluff is another great option too
  • white color palette. again, pretty obvious but this look benefits from keeping every light and bright
  • a white tree! although i’ve never had one i do love the drama and brightness of an all white tree. it would especially look good layered in all different shades and forms of white
  • ‘snow’ tipped branches. not a fan of an all white tree? you can buy trees with a snow brushed effect or you can do it yourself (check here or here)

i’ve compiled a collection of ‘winter wonderland’ inspired ornaments to deck your trees with!
