Trimming the Tree

Trimming the tree is a family tradition that's etched in stone on most family's lists of "holiday musts." However, you can update the tree's—and your home's—holiday look by making some easy substitutions or additions.

Complement the ornaments you have collected over the years with bunches of baby's breath, dried Christmas flowers, or clusters of holly with berries.

For a totally fresh look, go monochromatic: Select ornaments, ribbons, strings of beads and everything for the tree in all white, or gold, or silver. Not only will the tree complement any type of room décor, but it also will become a fantastic and totally elegant focal point of any room in your home.
