Tips for a Beautiful Christmas Tree

Christmas trees tend to be front and center in your home during the holiday season, so it should look beautiful.

Whether you have a faux tree or the real deal, the secret to a beautiful tree is not the latest trimmings, all color coordinated (although I do love that), or how much money you spend…it’s all about layers, textures and depth! 

Achieving this look is actually pretty easy and affordable.  Here is how I do it:

Set up your tree and add lights. Make sure you keep your tree watered and hydrated if you have a real tree!  Also, make sure your tree is secure. I recommend the Krinner Tree Stand. It’s amazing. It is so sturdy and has a gauge to make sure you keep the tree watered! 

Start with a ribbon with wire, or deco mesh ribbon, tinsel, or some similar item. Start from the top and pinch the ribbon then tuck it into the branches of the tree. No need to tie it in, just tuck it back. Work your way around the tree and down. Feel free to use multiple strands. 

Next add ornaments. Evenly hang them around the tree.  You don’t have to have a lot of ornaments to get great results, but if you have a lot  feel free to pack it in. A good tip is to place a few ornaments onto the branches in addition to hanging them from a hook. 

To add texture and depth, put on a topper, or add faux  floral picks  or whimsical picks (the pieces that stick out). I love Hobby Lobby’s selection for these! 

A tree collar or tress skirt is a great finishing touch. And as a bonus, I like to match all of my wrapping to the tree decoration.

ready to make it Rain{ka}?

I'm an award-winning, expert attorney in Jacksonville, Florida. I represent professional women and their families who are injured or arrested in Florida. I love my job and am proud to have a career, but when I became a mother, I learned that working moms are uniquely tasked with having to achieve "balance." (whatever that is.) What I really wanted was freedom - freedom to practice law in a way that works for me and my family. Through the support and advice of other working moms, I have found success by developing a personal brand that allows me to create my own clients and practice law in a way that gives me freedom. Now it's my turn to help other lawyer moms learn how to do the same and make it Rain(ka).
