Want a beautifully decorated tree but don't know where to start? Gorgeously decorated trees can be hard to put together so it's best to come up with a game plan. It's a good idea to thumb through holiday magazines and look for pictures of trees that you like. Once you have ripped out a bunch of pages, spread them out, look for a common theme, and try to mimic it.
If all of the pictures are different, pick the one you like the best and try to achieve that look. Another great idea is to come up with your own theme. Color pairs always make great themes (think red and green, ivory and gold, mauve and silver, or navy and white). Pick a pair of colors and only buy ornaments and accents that are those colors. If you don't want to go with colors, go with something simple like a star or floral theme. Get creative and have fun!
