Christmas is the best time of year for gorgeous home and outdoor décor. Trimming or decorating the tree means a festive occasion when families pull out the boxes of ornaments, lights and other adornments. It’s one of my favorite things to do at Christmas time and to be honest… to me a tree trimmed in traditional red and green emphatically says “Christmas.”
Now before you start shopping for your holiday decorations this year, find out about this year’s the latest trends in Christmas tree trimming and home decoration.
Nevertheless just like in fashion, every holiday season the colors, new cuts and patterns change. And while the 2010 Christmas Season is approaching fast, every year the same question arises: how is the tree to be dressed?
Traditional Christmas is still in fashion
A natural style and the use of natural materials like bleached wood, cotton and glass complete an authentic look. Combining old, cherished pieces with new purchases creates original recycling chic, especially when using collectibles with a patina.
In turbulent times, people always seek security in the familiar. The Christmas treed, real or synthetic, is the focal point of Christmas decorations. For Christmas 2010, manufacturers go with voluminous balls and imaginatively designed animals, angels and fairytale figures. Lametta and tinsel are out, instead artificial snow on pine branches will be extremely popular.

A reflective festival of light
Everyone has heard of the ability to save a ton of money with LEDs and the LED Christmas lights now present the traditional candle with serious competition. In chain or mesh form, these small, energy efficient wonder lights are taking over Christmas trees, windows and walls. Wrapped in plastic to form 3D lighting objects and dynamic LED lighting, LEDs bring variety to stiff decorations.
Pillar candles and tea light in a wide variety of colors, designs and fragrances dominate the candle market. Warm candlelight, whether fragranced or not, remains a symbol of romance and contemplation. Candles are predominantly simple in form but colorful and elaborately printed. Although wax sculptures, some intricately worked, have a wick, they function more as home accessories.
