Part of just about every Christmas decor is some sort of a tree, whether it is a live tree or an artificial Christmas tree. They come in many different shapes and sizes. If you opt for a live tree, there are many different types of pine available to you. The disadvantages of a live tree are pine needles falling off and needing to water the tree, but one of the greatest advantages is the wonderful smell of pine that wafts through the house during the season.
An artificial tree sometimes has the disadvantage of not looking exactly like a live product, but some of them are manufactured so well that it is tough to even notice the difference between them. The advantage of having an artificial tree is that for a one time purchase, you will have a tree for many years to come.
Another advantage is that there are many pre-lit artificial Christmas trees available. This will save you the headache of having to unwind all of those Christmas lights and replace bulbs every year. Another advantage would be that an artificial tree is easy to put away in Christmas tree storage bags until next year.
Of course, no Christmas decor would be complete without some artificial garland, tinsel, a few wreaths, holly, mistletoe and Christmas stockings. Some other ideas would be to have a Nativity scene. You can buy these as a set, or purchase each piece individually to make it one of a kind. Stockings can be used to add a special, personalized touch to any home.
Children love to add their names to a permanent marker or a glitter pen. You can also sew names onto the stockings to make them a little more special. Some other great ways to trim your rooms with holiday cheer is to add some seasonally scented candles. You can add them all to the room for that seasonal glow, or purchase scented candles to ring in the holidays with wafts of pine or cinnamon cookies.
Many people have included a train set around the tree as part of the Christmas décor tradition. A typical train for this time of year would likely involve a Santa and lots of presents going round and round the tree. Another decorating idea is to have a sleigh and reindeer.
