How to rock a Christmas tree decoration theme that truly reflects your unique personality.

Thanks to our brand partner, Swarovski

I remember every single Christmas tree my family has ever had.

Each one was slightly different and a reflection of life at the time.

From the overcrowded, slightly-slanted tree of my primary school days, to the more minimalist colour-coordinated tree from my late teens.

To now – a tree which is a combination of both – filled with handcrafted intricate baubles and lopsided trinkets thrown together by the grandchildren.

Decorating your Christmas tree is a deeply personal and creative task, and no two trees will ever look the same.

And mastering the art of your own Christmas tree decoration theme can be a heck of a lot of fun.

To help you out, we’ve rounded up five of the best themes for this Christmas:

More Sparkle Than Meghan Markle

This tree is all about embracing your inner glam.

Think sparkly, well-made baubles and handcrafted trinkets that will last for many Christmases to come.

A simple mix of gold and silver decorations, with a hero piece like this Annual Edition Ornament 2018 from Swarovski ($119), will make your tree one to remember.

Minimalist Dream

The minimalist dream tree is all about clean lines and simple decorations. Think a string of fairy lights and a few purposefully placed baubles.

With this theme, the actual greenery of the tree is the real hero.


A minimalist dream tree is perfect for small apartments or busy, professional couples.

Original & Colourful

A colourful Christmas tree allows you to have a bit more fun.

Think handmade decorations, bright colours and a clashing of prints.

If you're not a particularly crafty person and just love colour, this Swarovski ornament is a one of a kind.

The colourful tree is perfect for young families with curious minds and even more curious hands.

And big kids who aren't afraid to play with colour!

Monochrome Chic

Monochrome chic is perfect for the classic decorator.

These subtle decorations are easy to source - think white baubles, black tinsel, gingham bows - and will never date.

Ombre For Days

It turns out the ombre trend isn't only for your hair.

If you decide to go down the ombre track, you can either go for a sleek, minimalist ombre of whites, greys, and blacks.

Or you can fully embrace colour and make your tree a rainbow explosion of fun decorations.
