Themed Christmas Trees We'd 100% Replicate
By: Sarah Lyon
Have you started decking the halls? I waver between putting my decorations up in early November to waiting until after Thanksgiving or even into early December. This year, I’m thinking I’ll hold tight a bit because I’m not sure what I want my “theme” to be when it comes to decor.
While I’ve never decorated a themed Christmas tree before, I’m kind of motivated to do so after seeing the following images! I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I picture themed Christmas trees, super cheesy setups come to mind…no, thanks.
Let me tell you...after seeing all of the images I’m about to share below, I’m a changed woman. Themed Christmas trees are cool, ok?! Below are a handful that I would totally incorporate into my home and will hopefully help serve as inspo as we officially cross into 'holiday' territory!
A Petite, Camping Themed Tree
As an apartment dweller, I’m totally loving that this tree is proving that small, tabletop trees can be a thing. No room for a six foot evergreen? Yeah, me neither. All that aside, I think the camping theme that we see on this tree is so adorable and cozy looking. It (almost) makes me want to purchase a sleeping bag and plan a winter getaway…if you invite me camping, please just make sure there’s wine.
A Maximalist Tree With Vintage Ornaments Galore
I don’t know if this would be considered a themed tree, per se, but I admire artist Josh Young’s Christmas setup every year and love how he’s managed to design a tree that features all vintage ornaments. To me, this is total goals (as long as I have somewhere to store all of said ornaments!). Sometimes, I feel like colorful Christmas trees can look like a hodge podge of randomness, but that is most definitely not the case in this instance. Would you believe this tree boasts 2,000 ornaments?!
A Grinch-Themed Tree With Red, White, and Green
Home influencer Jenny Reimold is known for her super innovative tree designs (she’s even made a Halloween-themed tree before!), but this Grinch one is always a favorite. You’re never too old to pay a nod to this classic holiday movie, after all. Red, white, and “Grinch green” decor was the name of the game here.
A Blue and White Grandmillennial Tree
It will be fun to see how the Christmas trees of 2022 play off this year’s design trends: there was Coastal Grandmother, Barbiecore, and even Crustaceancore, to name a few. If you’re looking to honor one of these popular aesthetics, then turn to this blue and white grandmillennial themed tree to get those gears churning. To make it coastal, simply add in some shells!
A Jewel Toned Peacock Tree
Ok, how chic is this peacock Christmas tree? I love that it involves using so many fun jewel tones that will add life and energy to any space. If peacocks aren’t your thing, you could always select another animal to decorate around…flamingos, anyone?
An Ivory & Gold Tree
Does this tree make anyone else excited for the first snow? I've also been seeing a lot of beads this year and love how easy they are to incorporate. Bonus: beads add a subtle, rustic touch to any tree, which is always on-brand for the holidays. You can opt for a colorful strand if your style leans more eclectic, but a plaid wooden design is always a classic choice and pairs nicely with gold, silver, and white ornaments of all kinds. You can never go wrong with ivory...and this is the perfect balance for decorative, colorful garlands, bows, or even trending Christmas villages displayed about the home.
Now that we've seen all this fabulous inspiration...are you leaning towards doing a total theme?
