Southwestern Tree Decorating

Posted on November 28, 2016 at 1:15 PM



Decorating the Christmas tree is one of the most important time-honored holiday traditions. Like clockwork, stores across the nation are stocking their shelves with the usual garish sparkly holiday bulbs and ostentatious tinsel. But how do you make your Christmas tree go from gaudy to gorgeous?

Make your mark by incorporating an inviting southwest theme to liven up your festivities! By contrasting elegant and authentic Native American art with your standard holiday tree décor, you create a tasteful rustic atmosphere.



LIGHTING


Colored Christmas lights, although fun, can quickly turn your designer tree into a pile visual clutter. The goal with any good design is to elevate the most important ornaments (and colors) to attention. Lights are the first step to complementing your motif, without competing with your visual elements.


SOLUTION:


USE WHITE OR WARM LIGHT, TO BRIGHTEN UP YOUR TREE!


If you want to be eco friendly, LED lights now come in warm tones that look like traditional halogens.






GARLANDS


Tinsel garlands, the staple of Christmas tree decorating, although bright, distract from the elegance of your tree. How do you unify your display while keeping a natural southwestern look?


SOLUTION:


USE BURLAP AS A GARLAND!


Burlap comes in many colors, from neutrals to metallic, making it one of the most versatile materials on the market. Not only limited to your tree, burlap can be used to wrap holiday wreaths as well as a garnish for your dinning table centerpiece. 




ORNAMENTS & EMBELISHMENTS


Your centerpiece ornaments are the most important aspect of your Christmas tree. But how to you incorporate Native American motifs into your design without falling into the tacky cultural appropriation trap?


SOLUTION:


USE TRADITIONAL NAVAJO ECHED ORANMENTS IN YOUR TREE!


Embellishing your tree with handmade Navajo etched pottery ornaments, is a fantastic way to both support native artists and have an elegant and authentic southwest-style tree. These ornaments come in a variety of designs and colors, matching any home décor.


ADDING TEXTURE:


To compliment your ornaments, try adding texture to your holiday tree by adding faux plants. Faux succulents, air pants, and even traditional poinsettias enhance any tree.




GIFTING DREAMCATCHERS


All of us have budgets to follow, and coming up with personal, but inexpensive gifts can be a challenge.


SOLUTION:


GIVE YOUR GUESTS A PERSONALIZED DREAMCATCHER STRAIGHT FROM YOUR TREE!


Make your gift-giving into an event by adorning your tree with the perfect dreamcatchers for your loved ones. These genuine Native American artifacts create a subtle and elegant visual statement, while making your Christmas celebration more meaningful.
