Decorating Elegant Christmas Trees

If you've had your fill of the traditional type of Christmas tree - you know the kind - with the crafts made by your children, the multi-colored lights, the strings of popcorn and the old-fashioned ornaments - then why not think about creating an elegant tree this year?

Here are a few tips to consider. Holiday decorating is the most fun when you experiment and try new looks.

One of the keys to an elegant tree is a cohesive unit - preferably just a very few colors - not a whole lot of variety.

Start with several strands of white lights. You just can't have elegant without white lights. Only white. They should also be tiny lights, for more of the understated look.

Stay focused. If you need to buy or borrow extra ornaments, do so. Simplicity is the key.

Look for a full tree, perhaps one that is more refined, like a fir or spruce, rather than a pine.

Place the white lights on the tree first. Then begin to add the ornaments, one at a time, starting with the largest.

Periodically stop and view the tree from a bit of a distance. Check it for symmetry and balance. Rearrange the ornaments where necessary to fill in bald spots.

Don't overly pack the tree with ornaments. When dealing with an elegant style, less is more.

Think in terms of the background and the foreground. As an example, crystal icicles, silver or gold glass balls might serve as the background. Then place your more specialty ornaments - those one-of-a-kind ornaments - in the foreground.

Keep all of your old ornaments for another year. Change up your tree from one year to the next. Not only will you enjoy each one, you'll enjoy it more than ever before.

Look for ornaments that have a bit of "bling" and that catch the light. But don't make it gawdy.

For a different look, buy a couple rolls of white, wired ribbon with gold or silver threads. Run them down the tree, rather than around it. It will make the tree appear to be taller and more elegant as a result.
