Silver and Gold Shimmer
Take a sophisticated artificial flocked white tree and really make it shine with metallic copper, silver, gold and pink mercury glass ornaments.

If you don’t have enough space for a big Christmas tree (or even if you don’t have a lot of ornaments), a live tabletop tree is the perfect solution. Place in a pretty pot and decorate with your best ornaments. To really make it pop, go with one dominant ornament color.
For a more rustic take on the trimmings, decorate a live Christmas tree with large-scale ornaments and a mix of pinecones, berry and birch picks and woodland creature ornaments—group a collection of picks as a surprising tree topper.
Can’t get enough Christmas? Top a bedside nightstand with an artificial tree. Add an unexpected touch with your favorite ornaments and an unconventional tree topper, such as this clip-on bird ornament. A single box of coordinated ornaments is enough to decorate a tiny tree like this.
A Real Gem
A white tree is the perfect place to show off jewel-tone baubles. Cluster ornaments of similar shapes and randomly place larger decorations for a fun look. A dramatic angel tree topper completes the tree.
Make your live tree a showstopper by adorning it with classic, coordinating 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.
Inspired by Nature
Bring the outdoors inside this Christmas. Top a Scotch pine tree with picks and poinsettias, then layer on woodsy ornaments and flowers.
Set up a full-size Christmas tree in a high-profile spot and go to town. Start with silvery picks as a tree topper and loops of crystal garland, then add ornaments, including traditional balls and wispy see-through shapes.
Give a frosty tree a punch of color with bright ornaments in red, green, and blue. Add texture with fabric ornaments and gauzy ribbon. Top the tree with picks and a cluster of baubles.
Chic Color Palette
Adorn a tree with metallic and white ornaments, pretty flowers, and silver-painted pinecones.
Make a big statement with a tabletop Christmas tree in the entry. Skip the tangle of cords and let classic ornaments be the wow factor. Top the tree with an oversize ornament and ribbon, scatter more ornaments under the tree, and add fresh blooms in floral tubes for a bright welcome.
Sparkle and Shine
Create a breathtaking Christmas memory by decking your tree in coordinated ornaments and weaving in ribbon. Sculptural white ornaments and glossy red baubles offer attention-grabbing contrast. Atop the tree, arrange a bouquet of festive berry picks.
Playful Kids’ Tree
When it comes to Christmas ornaments, kids’ creations embody the spirit of the season. Let elves of all ages help with decorations for a whimsical, memorable tree.
A star is a traditional topper for a tree, but try a big bow instead. Add picks and garlands on the boughs of the tree to add shine and texture. Along with basic ornaments, have some fanciful decorations on the tree.
Make your Christmas tree look like it was designed by a pro. With unexpected ornament ideas, creative colors or themed looks, any Christmas tree can be the star of the Christmas show.
