We often take the joy out of the holidays by stressing out over all the details, but I am going to show you how to decorate a Christmas tree so you can stress about one less thing this holiday season.

I partnered with Big Lots on this post, and everything on this tree was found at Big Lots. They have a huge selection of holiday decor that will appeal to any style.

I recently had the amazing opportunity to visit the Big Lots headquarters in Columbus, Ohio to view their Christmas line earlier this year.

Besides cuddling with penguins, I saw all Big Lots has to offer this year. Their holiday line includes everything from rustic to fun and colorful to sophisticated decor. Obviously I am drawn to the more sophisticated look, so I created a glam Christmas tree for our home.

When decorating a tree, consider repetition, style and color.

How to Decorate a Christmas Tree:

Repetition

This tree was kept fairly simple and has repeats of four different types of ornaments. One type of tree filler and some large doves completed the look.

Style

Consider a particular style you want your tree to have, Elegance was the goal for this tree, so decor with a glam factor was used.

Color

Blues, metallics and creams were mixed to cream a cohesive look.

When decorating a Christmas tree, it is helpful to add the decor in groups. For this tree, the gold bulbs were added first and other ornaments were added by groups. The tree filler (thin gold spirals) and the doves were last.

As I mentioned earlier, everything on the tree was found at Big Lots! I love that our tree has a high-end look but it didn’t cost a fortune.

Here is the supply list for the Christmas tree:

  • Multipack of blue and silver shatterproof bulbs
  • Pearl shatterproof bulbs
  • Gold ball shatterproof bulbs
  • Gold leaf bulbs
  • Gold coiled tree filler
  • White feathered doves
  • Sequin gift boxes

Everything was found at my local Big Lots, but they also have a large season offering online!

Hopefully these tips help you create the perfect Christmas tree for your space!

At Home Christmas Tree

We have always been real tree people, but this past month I have had the honor of working with At Home Christmas Decor on several posts.  (To see my dining room Christmas makeover click HERE and to see my fireplace Christmas makeover click HERE.) During both of those shopping trips, I couldn’t help but notice the Christmas Trees.  At Home has a separate section devoted entirely to artificial trees – 101 varieties. I was quickly won over when I started thinking about how these trees could be used year after year, required no watering, wouldn’t make a mess, and I wouldn’t have to stand in the freezing cold to select a Tree for Me.  I was all in – especially with At Home’s everyday low prices.!

At Home Christmas Tree

At Home has 15 different themes that you can use on their own or group to make your perfect look: Seas & Greetings, Holiday Hoedown, Lavish and Luxe, Peppermint Jazz, Berry Platinum, Forest Fairy Tales, Crystal Chateau, Cherished Memories, Heaven and Earth, Midnight Plume, Regal Renaissance, Snowcapped Scene, Handcrafted from Around the World, Dem Darlings, and Handcrafted.   I used several different themes to get the perfect look:

    • Tree (7.5 foot pre-lit Laurent spruce tree)
    • Shatter Proof Ornaments
    • Burlap Tree Skirt
    • Burlap Ribbon
    • Scentsicles scented ornaments (because I LOVE the fresh tree scent!

Shatter Proof Ornaments

Shatterproof ornaments are a must for us.  I have kids and I have wood floors.  Not a great combination of glass ornaments.

At Home has aisles of ornaments.

I loved these geometric-shaped gold ornaments.  They added just a little something special to my tree.
