I was a meeting this past week where a tree decorating demonstration took place. The woman's name showing us the proper way to decorate a tree and giving ideas was Jennifer.
Lots of lights, determined by the height of the tree and then begin with wrapping and tucking ribbon. The largest size balls go on first and always in a diamond pattern as one continues with the next colour or smaller sized balls. Jennifer put in many floral picks as well as sparkly ones. The tree above right has no embellishment at the top.
Two ideas for toppers were to push in silver leaf-like picks for a fan effect or to create loops by bending over long strappy picks.
Standing in front of a tree already in the hall, Jennifer starts to make a bow with 10 yards of wired gold ribbon that she then placed on the top. She is in charge of the seasonal decor at a local nursery and has decorated 50 trees like this in one day! When asked how long it would take her to undecorate this tree, she figured about 5 minutes and laughingly told us we could time her.
The finished tree...and it did only take Jennifer (and her son) around 5 minutes to pack everything up to take back to the nursery.
Afterwards over tea and goodies, discussion ensued amongst a few of us as to whether or not we'd want our own tree to look like this. What do you think? Is this how you'd like your Christmas tree to be decorated?
