Welcome to the most magical time of the year! As the holiday season approaches, it's time to embark on a journey of festive decorations, starting with the centerpiece of holiday cheer – the Christmas tree. But this year, let's take it up a notch and infuse the beauty of flowers into your tree décor. Prepare to be amazed by the stunning results of this unique and enchanting twist on a classic tradition.

Embrace Global Inspirations and Symbolism

Do you want your tree to tell a story? Incorporate elements that reflect your personal experiences and dreams of wanderlust. Let the cherry blossoms from Japan transport you to serene landscapes, while moss balls evoke memories of nature's harmony. Add pomegranates, symbolizing prosperity and good fortune, alongside potpourri with its French origins. This amalgamation of global elements creates a truly captivating and meaningful tree.

Step-by-Step Guide: Decorating Your Tree with Floral Stems

Transforming your tree into a floral extravaganza is easier than you might think. Follow these steps to create a mesmerizing masterpiece:

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

For a seven-foot full-size tree, you'll need approximately:

  • 20 stems of dark purple leafy stems
  • 20 stems of red cherry blossom sprays
  • 36 stems of light pink cherry blossom sprays

Step 2: Make a Floral Garland

Prepare your floral stems by dividing them by color and trimming any excessively long stems. Start decorating from the side of the tree that will be most visible. Begin with one color of stem, shaping it into a "C" and tucking the bottom into the branches. Let the flowers or leaves gracefully rest between the branches. Continue this pattern, shaping curves and spirals as you go, adding stems until you achieve 3-4 layers in a continuous spiral. For corner trees, focus on covering the front and side. Make any necessary adjustments to ensure symmetry and balance. If needed, separate a bushel and tuck individual stems at the top to create a more delicate and refined effect.

Step 3: Illuminate with Enchantment

This year, let's elevate your tree's lighting game. Opt for a single long fairy LED light strand with copper wiring. This choice adds a touch of magic and eliminates the hassle of hiding cords. Embrace the ambiance created by the decorative lights and flowers, replacing traditional garlands, tree toppers, and ornaments. Remember, more is more!

Let Your Imagination Blossom

While this year's tree may feature all-new elements, the sentimental ornaments and traditional trimmings from previous years still hold a special place in our hearts. As a delightful twist, consider purchasing a smaller tree for the kids to decorate on Thanksgiving, reverting to your cherished family traditions. The joy and excitement will be palpable as you unveil your beautifully adorned main tree and the children find delight in decorating their own miniature version.
