Tips for Trimming Your Christmas Tree 

Ever since German settlers decorated the first Christmas trees in 19th century American homes, the tradition of trimming the tree has become a symbol of the season. Before losing yourself in aisles of lights, Christmas ornaments and tinsel, it is a good idea to plan how you want to decorate your Christmas tree. 

Trimming the Tree

Adding decorations one step at a time prevents tangled strands and broken ornaments. Following this order in reverse is also a simple way to un-decorate at the end of the holiday season: 

  1. Lights: Rest strands within the boughs, halfway between the tip and stem of branches.
  2. Beads or Tinsel: Drape loosely around the tree, starting from the top.
  3. Ornaments: Place large Christmas ornaments on thick branches near the bottom of the tree and fragile ones near the top.

If you are creating a classic Christmas tree aesthetic, we recommend using white lights. This mimics the tradition of placing candles in the tree. Use silver beads, ornaments with a red and gold color scheme and an angel or star tree topper to complete the look. Use multi-colored lights and colorful ornaments for a tree that reflects your personality.
