How to Decorate a Snowy Christmas Tree (6 Key Trends)

Promotional post

A snowy Christmas tree has become a big trend in our homes in recent years. How do you decorate a snowy Christmas tree?

Many of us have embraced a more natural artificial Christmas tree – the snowy variety in particular, and have moved away from the trend of the twig tree (me included).

There are a few reasons, but mainly, for those that love an artificial tree over a real tree, we want to embrace the winter wonderland feeling inside our homes.

A snowy Christmas tree makes us feel cosy, it brings the outdoors in, and taps into the Scandi home decor vibe we love here in the UK.

So, if you’ve invested in a snowy tree and what to make the most of it this year, let’s look at some of the best ways to decorate a snowy Christmas tree, which we can all follow.

How to Decorate a Snowy Christmas Tree

1. Take Decoration Ideas from Pinterest

Of course, I’m a big believer in doing what feels right for you, your home and your family when it comes to home decor.

Whilst there are trends and looks you can follow and interpret, it’s actually your decision on how you decorate your Christmas tree, and no one else’s.

With that in mind though, many people still like to draw inspiration from magazines, Pinterest, Instagram and blogs.

So let me give you some decoration ideas that can work really well on a snowy Christmas tree, that enhance the style of the tree, and create a striking impact in your home.

2. Try a Pink Snowy Christmas Tree

I’ve included the pink Christmas tree look as it’s become hugely popular in the last few years. If you love jumping on a trend, then this one is for you.

Either, invest in an actual Pink Christmas tree, or go with my preference and pink decorations to give it that on trend feel.

The main trick with a snowy Christmas tree is to really embrace the white, frosted design, and use white decorations to build on it, mixed with your accent colour.

Adding a selection of pink baubles, tinsel and other hanging decorations will bring a sense of soft tranquility and gentle shades to the look.

Stick with a paler pink for a softer look, or add vibrancy with a strong shade.

3. Mix Red and Gold Decorations

There’s still room for traditional Christmas tree decorations, and if that’s what you are looking for, you can’t get away from the classical look of red and gold.

Whilst I’m not a fan of red decorations (or red in general, I don’t wear it either), gold has become a staple in my home decor in general, and it looks fabuous on a snowy tree.

Add red baubles, stars and flowers. Go for texture too and introduce different fabrics and materials. Felt is a good one, as is a frosted Christmas tree decoration.

There are so many options that really, it’s down to you and your own personal likes and dislikes.

3. Keep it Natural

This year in particular has given many of us the opportunity to connect with nature.

We’ve spent more time outdoors, walking, meeting friends and enjoying the open spaces, parks and countryside.

It follows, therefore, that we want to embrace nature into our home too at Christmas time.

Add decorations made of natural materials, twigs, wood, bark covered, pine cones, berries, and greenery.

All of these elements give the tree a really popular Nordic feel too, which many home lovers embrace at this time of year.

4. Winter Wonderland

Building on, and making the most of the snowy, frosted look on a Christmas tree like this, is the best way to get festive.

Give your tree a winter wonderland theme, introducing mixed metallics for a more modern edge.

This way, you take a more standard look and give it a contemporary twist.
