Christmas Tree Challenge!

It was so much fun to participate in the Home for the Holidays Christmas Tree Challenge with Decorator’s Warehouse, my absolute favorite one-stop shop for Christmas decor! They have amazing ornaments, ribbons, Christmas lights, trees, and more.

The goal for this challenge was to create a Christmas tree using products exclusively from Decorator’s Warehouse, which was such a pleasure to do! I love how they offer beautiful, budget-friendly selections for such a vast variety of styles.

Unique Yet Traditional

To achieve this festive and inviting look, I was inspired by The Nutcracker, one of my favorite holiday traditions! With millions of Christmas trees going up around the world during the holiday season, I wanted to create something that was special and different, yet also still familiar to Christmas.

Ribbons and Bows

One simple way to make your tree stand out is to add a Christmas ribbon! (Or two or three if you’re like me!) I love how the plaid in the Nutcracker ribbon complements the classic plaid ribbon that I placed throughout the tree.

P.S. For an easy bow tutorial, you can check out my post about that here!

Extra Pops of Color

Have you ever wondered how some trees look so full and lush? A little secret is to add in these spray branches that add so much dimension, color, and intrigue. I love how there is such a variety, from sparkly berries to gingerbread houses to Grinch hands! These sprays can also be such a festive touch to an indoor vase or outdoor planter!

My absolute favorite part of tree decorating is adding the ornaments and I’m so impressed with the collection from Decorator’s Warehouse! I love how the Nutcracker discs, drum, and harlequin ornaments make such a statement!
