Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

Oh, Christmas trees!  There are so many ways to express your personality and decorating taste when trimming the Christmas tree.  Above, we rounded up some of our favorite takes on the traditional Christmas tree.  

Top Row
Think Pink: Feeling extra feminine or have an apartment full of girls this holiday season?  Take advantage and go all out with a glamorous pink Christmas tree decked out in silver, gold, and glittery ornaments.  
Less is More:  A little felt bunting can go a long way.  Red and white bunting makes a simple, old-fashioned, vintage statement for a modern holiday.  Plus, it's a simple project if you like to DIY!
Offbeat Color: Who says you have to stick to traditional red and green this season?  Go off the beaten path and switch up the hues this year.  Hot pink and turquoise are a daring (and quite lovely) duo!

Center Row
Starry Night, Sailor's Delight: At first glance, this tree appears decked out in traditional Christmas stars and snowflakes.  Look a little closer and you'll see starfish and seafaring ship-wheels.  
Ultra Violet: Looking to make a dramatic statement for Christmas?  Go bold and bright with a tree in an unexpected color... like vibrant purple!  
Keep It Classy: A flocked tree trimmed in silver and red ornaments is a classic look that reminds us of candy canes and peppermints.  Take it to the next level with coordinating accessories strewn throughout the room.  (Pops of red are a great idea!)

Bottom Row
Holly Jolly: Why mess with perfection?  Nothing gets everyone in the Christmas spirit like the tried-and-true red and green combination... especially when you throw in candy canes, holly, Santa, and words like "Noel" and "Joy."
Jack and Sally:  Nightmare Before Christmas fans will love this white tree tricked out with black Tim Burton-inspired ornaments.  
White Christmas:  And lastly, we can't help but be delighted by the magic of an all-white tree.  White branches, tinsel, lights, and ornaments have us dreaming of a white Christmas and a little dusting of snow.

Which of these tree themes is your favorite?
