1. GO FOR THE LESS BUSHY LOOK
As an alternative to Christmas excess, why not make a statement and choose a stark and unadorned tree? This bold touch can really act as a counterpoint to the festive bacchanalia whirling around it. Should you wish to add interest to this look, choose a birch tree style with lovely ribbed details on the trunk and winter white branches.
2. GO FOR BOLD BAUBLES
When considering how to decorate your Christmas tree, try nestling bold, jewel-toned baubles into your snowy pine. This is sure to create a modern but eclectic feel to your festive display, and inject a real dose of magic into your tree design. Adding colored baubles can help bring warmth to an otherwise frosty white look too, so think yellows, bright pinks and electric blues to add some unconventional Christmas colors to your tree. 'Whatever you do, don’t skimp. Nothing’s sadder than an under-accessorized tree,' says Jonathan Adler.
3. OR TRY A METALLIC TREE
Another Christmas tree trend is to go metallic. This silvery-looking Christmas tree is a stylish take on the white Christmas tree trend and adds more shine to your Christmas scheme. 'The holidays not a time to hold back,' says Jonathan. 'The more twinkle the better. And what’s twinklier than a silver tree?' This gives a little eclecticism to your scheme and can bring some magic to a corner of the room. Just make sure not to decorate with tinsel, instead go for simple paper decorations and let the tree itself do the talking.
4. OPT FOR FROSTY WHITE TIPS
For a more alternative Christmas tree look, try frost-white tips. You can either buy your tree with these white tips as is, or get crafty this Christmas with a green faux tree that you color yourself. You can buy Christmas tree flocking spray or flocking powder, both will give you that coveted Christmas greenery a winter wonderland vibe with ease.
5. GO FOR MINI WHITE TREES ON A TABLESCAPE
When decorating the home for Christmas, you might want to create a beautiful festive tablescape to usher in the magic of Christmas. First and foremost, think about what kind of look you want for your table. Instead of an indulgent spread rich in color and candles, why not go simple with an all-white look with Christmas trees dotted throughout the center of your table. Bringing height to your scheme, they make for a cute centerpiece, and aren't too tall to make dinner conversation tricky.
6. USE WHITE LIGHTS ON YOUR TREE
The magic of Christmas may remind us of our childhood days, but that doesn't have to mean masses of multicolored, blinking tree lights piled on the tree in an artless manner. White Christmas tree lights - whether twinkling or not - styled over your Christmas tree branches look beautiful and stand out more than colored ones which can get lost among the foliage and other decorations. This monochrome option allows for you to be more adventurous with the shape of the bulbs - tiny lightbulbs, little Moroccan souk-style lamps or even icicles work well to denote a wintry theme.
7. TAKE IT OUTSIDE
Christmas trees aren't just for the living room, why not make the most of any garden space with outdoor Christmas decor bound to bring cheer to the neighborhood and create a magical welcome. You can place a garden Christmas tree on your porch, or go all out and line them either side of your driveway. Invest in lights that work for an exterior setting that are fully waterproof and adorn your white tree.
8. FINALLY, FOR THE TOP OF THE TREE
Last, but certainly not least is your white Christmas tree topper - the final decorative flourish on your white Christmas tree. More traditionally, a twinkly star or angel sits atop your tree, but a white Christmas tree gives you the license to be a bit more experimental in your crowning glory.
