Christmas Tree Trends
It's the most wonderful time of the year, and if you're ready to spread holiday cheer by decking the halls and dressing your tree to the nines, then you'll want to know about the top Christmas tree trends for 2023.
When it comes to Christmas tree ideas, we're not suggesting a complete overhaul of decorations and baubles. However, knowing what trends are popular can help give your tree a little refresh and make it stand out.
While most of us think of Christmas tree trends as involving real or artificial trees in our living spaces, outdoor Christmas decorating ideas are becoming increasingly popular as well. There's been an uptick in outdoor decorating in recent years due to spending more time outside and the desire to bring festive cheer to the exterior of our homes.
Whether you choose to decorate indoors or outdoors, here are the top Christmas tree trends to keep in mind for 2023.

For those who prefer a more minimalist aesthetic, opt for a more understated look this Christmas. Think sparse branches, minimal decorations, and a focus on the natural beauty of the tree itself. Want a little decoration? Stars are a great shape to use on your tree as they are festive yet unfussy. Dot just few oversized stars across your tree and even forgo the fairy lights if you're after a really simple look.
5. Natural Elements

If you're a fan of the botanical look, then dressing your tree with florals might be right up your street. There is no hard and fast rule that you have hang baubles on your tree at all, inject sprays of faux florals into your tree to create a stunning centerpiece in your living room.
6. Classic and Cosy

For this look layer antique golds with vintage-inspired designs, a dusting of glitter and a sprinkle of sparkle, brings a glamorous touch to this ultra luxe theme. Opting to just one single colour family makes a magical display that is timeless and grown-up. Go all out with a gold tree! Or if you have a tree already, just stick to gold and metallic decorations.
