One often overlooked aspect of your festive decor is the base of your Christmas tree. Rather than leaving it bare and unattractive, considering it as part of the overall theme can really tie everything together, from branch to base.
Decorating the Base
So, what can you do to spruce up the base of your tree? Here are a few ideas:
- A rustic basket
- A large vintage-style wooden box
- A Christmas rug
- Surrounding it with festive figurines or lit garlands
- Wrapping it up with a cozy blanket
By matching your tree base decor to the rest of your tree, you create a uniform, aesthetically pleasing look.
Trending in 2023
The key trend for Christmas decor in 2023 is “mix and match”. That means combining traditional elements like Christmas balls, the star on top of your tree, and frilly garlands with more unique or “funky” elements.
These “funky” elements could include disco ornaments, glitter, or even mushroom-shaped ornaments. Don't be afraid to get creative and make your tree a reflection of your personal style.
In the end, it's all about the details. Lighting in particular can make or break the cozy, welcoming atmosphere that you want to achieve for Christmas. So remember to give it the proper attention it deserves.
