A few yellow lights give the tree a gentle glow without being too bright when it’s time to go to sleep.

Twig balls, gold glitter snowflakes, and silver baubles seem to be staple elements in Christmas tree decoration. There’s nothing wrong with sticking to traditions, but there’s nothing wrong with adding a few personal touches. Larger trees tend to look boring if the designer sticks with a single color or ornament shape, so it’s smart to experiment with different shades and textures. Fluffy pom-poms, frosted pine cones, and large bead strands offer an unusual look to break up the monotony. A pristine white ribbon wraps around the entire tree to finish the top with an elegant bow.
