Decorating the Christmas tree is an annual tradition that creates memories and brings families together. There’s nothing better than kicking off the Christmas season by decorating the house, baking cookies and playing fun Christmas games with the family. If you still haven’t decorated or put up your tree, there are so many types of lights, different colors, ornaments, garlands and skirts you could decorate your tree with.
Picking out a theme for your tree can be a fun activity for the family and a new tradition every year. Most people might stick to the regular red and green colors with silver and gold thrown in, but why not switch it up to something more unique? Or something that makes your guests want to know how you came up with such a great idea. Whether you decide to get a real tree or a fake tree, a big or small tree, or the regular Christmas green tree or a colorful one, picking the right tree for your theme and home is important. Then you can buy the decorations to make everything match up.
Create memories and bonding moments with these unique Christmas tree themes.

When it comes to Christmas tree themes, try out a unique yet elegant twist by doing a rainbow tree. While you may need more ornaments for this theme, it’s definitely worth it. Use ornaments that are the colors of the rainbow, and line them up from bottom to top in a spiral effect. Start with red at the bottom and end with purple at the top.
