Decorate in Red and Gold
Make your live Christmas tree a showstopper by adorning it with classic, coordinating Christmas ornaments in red and gold, a beaded garland, and strings of lights. Play with the scale of ornaments to give your tree balance, then top it with a standout shining star.
Set the Scene
A gray-green wall color (Valspar Smoke Infusion, #5002-1B) sets a fresh backdrop for a living room decked out naturally. Create two focal points: a Scotch pine tree topped with picks and poinsettias, and a DIY wooden star decoration for the mantel. Add more greenery by connecting twin live wreaths with ribbon. Use pillows and throws to bring color and softness to the furniture.
Sparkling Baubles and Inspiring Adornments
Birds of a feather flock together on the full-size white Christmas tree and mantel -- vivid against walls painted Valspar Summer Sky, #5001-9B. Birds perch on small white pre-lit Christmas trees while wreaths hold a trio of winged creatures. Butterflies take flight around the white garland made from disassembled tree picks. On the table, regal deer rest among live greenery and shimmery picks used as tabletop trees.
